Newburgh Rotary Sends Shelter to Nepal
The Newburgh Rotary Club has raised the necessary funds to purchase one ShelterBox (cost, $1000) to date, for humanitarian aid in Nepal, following the
overwhelming disaster caused by the recent earthquake. Pictured in the photo left to right are Newburgh Rotarians Bob McCurdy, Brenda Harburger, Deanne Brady, Doug Sturomski (Rotary ShelterBox Liaison), and Lou Chappo, (club president).
