Twice a month, every month, volunteers from the Milford Rotary Club serve up a fantastic meal to the guests at the Beth-El Center Soup Kitchen. This Saturday the Club served a special Holiday Luncheon that featured holiday music by Jay Rowe, holiday decorations and an extra special meal.
Milford Rotarian Larry Landsberg, aka The Shoreline Chef, was quoted as saying “We served over 50 people a luncheon of roasted petit fillet, mashed potatoes and gravy, roasted vegetables, red velvet cake, and ice cream. Jay Rowe, international known smooth jazz pianist and Milford resident, friend of Milford Rotary played some holiday music. I am unsure who had a better time, our guests or the Rotarians.”
Chef Larry is the primary ‘cheerleader & chief” for this event for his Club as it a cause that he cares dearly about. His family is also stepping in to run 5 of the events during 2014.
The Milford Rotary Club is a big Club with a giant heart. With about 100 members they conduct large scale of fundraisers, such as the Lobster Bake, they give back to their community in dozens of ways including giving scholarships, they generously support The Rotary Foundation and they know how to have fun while doing so despite overcoming some daunting adversity.
Milford Connecticut is also home to The Devon Rotary Club which is a very active Club of 55 members that also actively participates every other Saturday in serving meals on a regular basis at the Beth-El Center. They have also donated a Van to the Beth-El Center.
The Milford and Devon Rotary Clubs regular ‘hands-on’ participation in the Beth-El Soup Kitchen demonstrates that these are groups of Rotarians who knows that it takes far more than simply writing checks to help their community.
