Our Pictures with Fire Station #12

We had a great turnout for our lunch & tour of Fire Station #12 B - Thank you to all who came!
Plano West, with great support from our sister club North Texas Pioneers, enjoyed Greek Isles lunch together with Fire Station #12 in the bay, said the pledge of allegiance, presented them with an official Texas state flag from House of Representatives rep Jeff Leach, and got a tour of the site.
About half way through our tour, they showed us a beautiful handcrafted table made from wood salvaged from various fires they fought.  Right after that, about half of the on duty team was dispatched on a call.  Not 10 minutes later, the rest of the team was also dispatched, and we watched them take off in the fire engine!
 
This week's program was Jeffrey from the North Texas Food Bank, sharing what's new and the Grand Opening of their new building in Plano on Sept 16th.  Afterwards, we presented our speaker with a Certificate of Appreciation acknowledging a $10 donation in his name to the PolioPlus Fund.  With the 2 to 1 matching funds from The Bill & Melinda Gate Foundation, this donation provides a Polio vaccine for about 50 children!
#EndPolio
 
Plano West #PeopleOfAction listened to a program about Send Hope (http://www.send-hope.org) and how they are improving the lives of children in Honduras with education, medical attention and packaged nutritional food.  Afterwards, we donated funds and packaged food for these children and families.
 
We packaged 1,080 meals in about 30-40 minutes!  That will feed 3 children for 1 year!!
 
 
Our Charity Bucket will go towards books for our sponsor school, Barron.
