  • As a parent and grandparent, I know how hard it can be to get kids ready for school every year.
    In addition to the obvious things like new clothes, and school supplies, there are all those other details.
    Does my child need glasses? Can he hear the teacher?
    Her hair is a shaggy mess! There doesn’t seem to be time in a day or a week to get it all done.
    Thanks to the Morgan County Coalition for Kids, all of these details can and do happen in one day!
    With an army of volunteers from all over the county, Morgan County students are screened from head to toe. There’s also information about after school activities, ID cards, and other community services. Of course, at the end there’s a room full of school supplies!
    It takes careful planning, lots of hard work, and the cooperation of many individuals and groups.
    I think all of us should take the time to say thank you for a job well done!
    This year the Laurie Sunrise Beach Rotary Club was proud to be a part of this amazing effort, and we hope to be there for many years to come.
