At our meeting on Wednesday April 22nd, members welcomed many guests and representatives of two charities to which the club made donations this year. The Major Fundraiser was successful and allowed for $12,000 to be donated to the Signature Charities.
Among our guests was Mike Zaller, owner and player with the Savannah Theater Group.  The outstanding performance of this group, led by Mike, on two evenings at the Plantation Club to a sold out house, was the underpinning of our fund raising efforts for the year.  Our fund raising success was also supported by the Spring Fling and the Fall Festival last year.  Mike was thanked by President Darrel Snuggerud, and an encore was promised for the fall of 2015.
Our member Toni Marwitz presented a $6,000 check to Cheryl Branch, Executive Director, and Lorraine Boyce, member of the board of the Safe Shelter of Savannah.  Members were thanked for their support of Safe Shelter and for the many voluntary tasks they have performed there.
President Elect Tom Macek presented a $6,000 check to Deborah Heddendorf, Community Outreach Director, of the local Alzheimers Association.  The Skidaway Rotary Club was thanked for its ongoing support of this charity; our weekly meeting offers a raffle which benefits this fund on a regular basis.
