2017 Provisional Class Donates Check to Beverly Farm

Our 2017 Provisional Class wrapped up their new member project on 12/6/17 – and presented a big check to the folks at Beverly Farm. In total, they will have raised $2,300 to benefit this amazing local home to nearly 400 people who live with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

Along with several active members of League, the members also sang carols with the residents prior to the check presentation – great crowd! Thank you to everyone who made this possible!
