The local Salvation Army held a volunteer recognition event Thursday, April 19.  Mesa West member Alan Ramsdell offered the invocation and spoke to the audience at the event.  Alan has served on the local board of Salvation Army since 1967.  It is his passion.
Officer Len Virtue presented Mesa West President, Allan Cady, with an award for Mesa West Rotary recognizing us as "The volunteer Club with the highest collected donations at a Salvation Army bell ringing station" during the 2017 collection season.
Mesa West members Immanuel Beeson, Polly and Allan Cady posed with Holly Beeson and Len Virtue to celebrate the success Mesa West members and recruited volunteers enjoyed collecting donations for the Army in front of Bass Pro last year.  Not shown in the photos, but critical to the success of Mesa West Rotary in this endeavor was our club's coordinator, Don LaBarge.
