A Thank You to Avon Cleveland Clinic ER Workers

North Coast Rotarians decided that instead of having their annual recognition and new officer installation event, they would use the money to buy pizza and cake for the Emergency Room Department workers at Avon Cleveland Clinic to thank them for their dedication. At noon yesterday, they delivered pizzas from Master Pizza in Avon and Pizza Hut near LCCC and a box of handy North Coast Rotary “chip bag clips”!
