The Bethel Rotary Club is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring its 31st annual Christmas    For Children program.  Since 1987, this vital community project has helped to provide important  assistance during the holiday season for many children and families who live in the MSAD #44 area.  
     Anyone interested in donating to this effort is urged to send his or her contribution to: 
                 Bethel Rotary Club - Christmas For Children
                            PO Box 471,  Bethel, ME 04217 
       Requests for assistance may also be mailed to the same address or dropped off at any school office in MSAD #44.  Please note that assistance is provided only to families who reside in the MSAD #44 area and requests can only be accepted from the parents or legal guardians of the children.  The Rotary Club is pleased to be able to assist families with children up to and including high school age.  All requests must include the name and age of each child.  A telephone number and mailing address should also be included. This year, we are also asking that requests for assistance contain an email address, if one is available. 
      Once again this year, watch for Rotarians collecting donations at the Bethel Foodliner between now and the holidays - the weekends of Dec 15/16 and Dec 22/23.
     We thank the Community for the ongoing generosity and support shown for this program over the many years of its existence. 
                    Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season!
