The turnout for backpacks exceeded expectations and all 150 backpacks were loaded in about an hour.
From the bank, they were taken to Shearn Elementary School by a YMCA van to be given out to local kids from many area schools.   This year they bore the logo of West U Rotary.
Thank you, Chad Spencer, for spearheading this wonderful service project that will be appreciated by a young student and will spend a year (or more) advertising West U Rotary in many communities.   The embroidered logo looked great.   What a cool idea to get that added.   Thanks to everyone who came out to help   See the photo of the little boy who picked one about an hour later.
