The Rotary Club of Harrow played the role of Cupid last week, as members delivered roses and chocolates to the residents and staff at Harrowood Senior Community.

  Ray Fischer, President of the Rotary Club of Harrow, noted members of the local service club usually hands out a special treat, in person, to the residents of Harrowood to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Because of the lockdown this year, club members had to drop off the special gifts last week.

  “We’ve been pretty sensitive to Harrowood,” Fischer said of the members of the Rotary Club of Harrow wanting to bring some joy to the residents and staff as they navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic. In the fall, members put up bird feeders, then put up Christmas lights and ensured the drive-through Santa Parade passed the facility during the holiday season.

  “Anything we can do to bring smiles to their faces,” Fischer said.

  Coming up, the Rotary Club of Harrow is planning to host some kind of activity for the community to celebrate Easter. The local service club typically hosts a pancake breakfast, but social gathering restrictions will likely have the club make alternative plans.
