The club previously gave headsets to the entire student body but met the need for additional ones this year. Pictured with the class are Crater (left) and Rotary representatives Roland Gaebert, Earl Parker and John Graham. Graham, a retired teacher, was instrumental in arranging the headsets’ donation. The headsets will allow each student to get full use out of a computer without disturbing others.

Art Alliance members brought art materials to donate to the HELP Center so they can be distributed to children in need over the holiday season. Boxes to receive more donations will be located at Café Aroma and the Idyllwild Library through the end of October, where even a small donation will help encourage the creativity of Idyllwild children and make their holidays a little brighter.

GC is committed to educating the community about former racing greyhounds available for adoption. They frequently participate in public events, street fairs, schools, retirement homes, senior centers, and “Meet and Greets” at local pet stores.
