"As you probably know, the complimentary programs once enjoyed by our senior citizens that were provided by local community colleges have been cut because of the bankrupt condition in which we find the State of California," MacAdam stated.
MacAdam's goal is to recruit as many people as possible who have the heart and interest and talent to teach interesting complimentary classes or facilitate group activities using their talents, interests and experiences. Volunteers can contact MacAdam at (949) 644-5552, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org., to learn more about this great volunteer opportunity.
EXCHANGE CLUB SUPPORT CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION
Past Exchange Club of Newport Harbor President Norm Von Herzen presented Child Abuse Prevention Center Executive Director Scott Trotter a check for $3,001. This was the culmination of Norm's challenge offering $1,500 in matching funds to the membership's contribution. Norm took a lot of ribbing all in good spirit from his fellow club members, for this worthy cause. Club Treasurer Tom Norton then presented Scott Trotter with a separate check from the club for $26,000. The second check was part of the proceeds from the annual movie benefit held each fall.
