The Aurora Rotary and city of Aurora had another successful leaf raking event last Saturday.

Close to 150 volunteers were dispersed amongst the city raking 35 lawns, most of which were for senior citizens who were unable to do so themselves. Special thanks to Dunkin’ Donuts who donated doughnuts in the morning and to Giant Eagle and Heinen’s who donated gift cards that provided beverages. The Rotary Club paid for the pizza that fed the volunteers lunch. Special thanks to Patricia Costanza from the Aurora Rotary Club and to Colleen Martin from the city who helped to make this event possible.

Once again, I am overwhelmed at the generosity of our city and of our young people who give so unselfishly of their time and resources. Special thanks to the Church Of Aurora, the Aurora Rotary Interact Club, and several scouting groups and athletic teams for giving of their time on a very cold Saturday morning.
