All possible COVID-19 precautions will be practiced including use of masks, face shields, gloves, wipes and hand sanitizers. All volunteers will practice “safety first" procedures to protect our club members and the general public. Drivers will be requested not to leave their vehicles.

The money raised at the event will be used to support both students and seniors in our community.

Also, senior members of AARP Historic Chapter #1 will benefit from the fundraising efforts as well as the Rotary Club of Surprise Community Foundation which has been voted the “Best

“Shredding sensitive documents, such as old financial statements and bills, is one of the best precautions people can take against identity theft” said Jay Lickus, past president of the Rotary Club of Surprise. “We are so happy to provide this service to our community.”
