New Year’s Eve Millbrook (Aired on December 17 and 18, 2016)

New Year’s Eve Millbrook (Aired on December 17 and 18, 2016)
Rotarian
Joyce Heaton
(Millbrook Rotary), who has chaired the annual
event New Year’s Eve Millbrook for 13 years, describes the family-
friendly way that the Millbrook community and visitors celebrate the
last day of each year—with music, puppets, circus and magic acts, and
other entertainments. Many local foundations, businesses, and
individuals fund the free event, but it is run almost entirely by
volunteers from Millbrook Rotary. Each year patrons can donate a
small sum to obtain a lighted button that incorporates a design by a
local student. The RadioRotary interview also describes some of the
many other activities of Millbrook Rotary, which range from annual
publication of a business directory for Millbrook and the surrounding
communities through provision of local school children with school
supplies their families might be able to afford to donations of free
dictionaries and other books to local schools. The club also helps fund
local organizations and international projects.
