Thank you to all the Emmaus Rotarians who came out to help our Community Service Committee meet up with the Emmaus Interact Club students on Thursday afternoon. We met at the Trexler House close to Emmaus Community Park to take down and put away hundreds of outside Christmas decorations from the yard. The decorations had been carefully put up by the Interact students, who had a lot of fun decorating the yard before Christmas. If you have never been - come and see in December 2020!!   The Interact Club and Trexler Family were certainly happy for the help with packing away all the decorations and cleaning up the yard. The Trexler family have been decorating their yard for a decade now and have been supporting two local charities.  A donation box sits outside their house for Angel 34  (a non-profit organization with 100% volunteers) with all funds going to help children and their families battle cancer - $2,000 was raised this year!!  The Trexler family's girls help make hot chocolate and any money raised from their hot chocolate venture goes to support The Sanctuary at Haafsville, a safe haven for homeless cats and dogs (in 2018, The Sanctuary helped place over 1,400 animals). 
It's amazing -  all the decorations are stacked away in the house attic very carefully - gingerbread men, snowmen, santas, penguins, wise men, manger animals being passed along the chain and up a ladder into the Trexler's attic !!  
We certainly had a fun time working together and the Trexler family who were very grateful for all the help.  Afterwards, we all enjoyed some excellent pizza thanks to Mike Lahanas at Embassy Bank -  it was very much appreciated !!
