One Good Deed for Sandy
On Friday, May 13th, it was a super surprised Sandy Bartlett who was handed the keys to a shiny black car at the Bow Rotary's weekly meeting by James Newsom (on Sandy's left) and Mike Griffin, Bow Rotary President (on the left). Bow Rotarians organized a much-needed refurbished car for Sandy, to replace her blue Toyota which has put on a lot of miles driving to weekly breakfast meetings in both Bow and Hopkinton. The two Clubs also contributed to repairs for the car.
Sandy Bartlett has been making sure that Hopkinton Rotarians enjoy a good breakfast on Wednesday mornings for more than 18 years. And she's been catering breakfast at the Bow Club for almost as long. Here's to another 18 years Sandy!
