Christmas Tree Project

This year, the Rotary Club of Quartzsite joined forces with the Quartzsite Senior Center and provided a wonderful Community Christmas Party on Sunday, Dec. 14. Businesses and organizations donated decorated Christmas Trees and Wreaths to be raffled off. The money raised supported the Quartzsite Fire Auxiliary "Angel Tree", the Salvation Army and the Gift of Life Foundation. The trees had been on display at the Town Hall for the past few weeks. Carol Kelley, Activity Director of the Q Senior Citizens Center, wished to thank the Quartzsite General Store, the restaurants around town who donated 17 dinners to the seniors at the Senior Apts., the mayor, coundil members and all the volunteers who donated so much time and effort to make this event such a huge success! Kelley's volunteers who worked in the kitchen really did an awesome job, as well as the decorators who transformed the hall into a winter wonderland. At times there were so many folks dancing to the sounds of "The Travelers" they started bumping into each other. Everyone appeared to be having a wonderful evening!
24 Trees and 6 Wreaths were donated this year! A new record! Also over 90 dinners were served!
