Rotary Club of Clovis

Rotary provided backpacks for 75 students that were filled with school supplies provided by Rotary Club members. They were passed out to the older children and youths. Sack packs were handed out to children 4 to 6 years of age and were provided by the Office Depot in partnership with NM Rep. Anna Crook, and the National Federations of Women Legislators. They were distributed to those who attended the block party, with others who were unable to attend, picking theirs up at the Christian Believers Education Association building on Main Street. Attendance was estimated to be well over 100 people including children. There were bouncy houses set up for the children to enjoy as well as drinks, popcorn, hot-dogs and balloons. It was a great event and was enjoyed by everyone that attended.
