Glendale Sunrise Rotarians, Don Icardo, Nina Sonin (GSR Youth Services Chair), Patty Fallahee and Eric Hamilton spent last Thursday at Horace Mann Elementary school passing out donated and collected books to Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders. The head librarian kept the teachers and students moving through the auditorium like clockwork. Bookplates were placed in each book. Don Icardo made sure to tell each student, “we don’t write in books, do we, but these fine Rotarians will write your name in the book and it’s yours to keep forever”. Approximately 300 books were given away in a 3 hour period. Thank you to Marilyn Gunnell, Jory Potts, Richard Diradourian and Glynn Martin for helping sort and clean the books. Special thanks to Jory Potts for collecting the books. Plus Angelo Cirricione / Frank Lopez for transporting them to and from the Salvation Army / school. It really takes a village to make this project happen.
