With cuts coming to programs designed
to help the needy with their utility bills, The Parker Task Force wants
to recognize the Rotary Clubs for their support to help provide this
vital service to our clients.
The PTF would
like to thank the Rotary Club of Parker, Cherry Creek Valley Rotary Club
of Parker, Rotary Club of Castle Pines, Rotary Club of Castle Rock and
the Rotary Club of Centennial. The clubs held fundraisers that included
a peach sale with Joy Lutheran Church and a karaoke contest at Takoda
Tavern to raise money to help fund a grant for PTF. We also want to
thank IREA for its contribution to this utility grant.
Rotary Clubs’ motto “Service Above Self”, exemplifies the spirit of the
organization and their ongoing support of PTF. We are grateful for this
long and valuable association and so are the many families who come to
us for support and assistance.
