After hurricane Sandy hit, it was great to see our community lending helping hands to each other. Special recognition goes to the Red Cross. They, along with First Selectman Ed Haberek and the Stonington High School, made a big difference to people in our community hit hard by the storm. In recognition for their continued efforts in helping people during natural disasters, our Rotary club donated $500 to our local Red Cross. Keep up the good work!
