The Rotary Club of Orange, together with Orange Recycling, will hold a shredding day at High Plains Community Center on June 25 from 9 am-12 pm. Bicycles of all sizes can also be donated at the same time.
Items brought for shredding should be personal documents, and all paper should be removed from binders or notebooks beforehand. Although there is no charge to area residents, donations will be gratefully received. The donations will be used for our annual student scholarships.
Donated bicycles will be given to BEEEP Inc. (Bicycle Education, Entrepreneurship and Enrichment Program). BEEEP is a New Haven-based non-profit program that recycles bicycles and teaches repair and riding skills. BEEEP enriches the community through biking for people who don’t have bikes, those whose bikes are broken, and those who don’t feel safe riding in the city.
Rotary is the only service club of its type in the world. Orange Rotary welcomes new members at its weekly luncheons. The Orange Rotary Club includes community business people, professionals, and like-minded individuals. Those interested in membership can consult www.rotaryclubfororange.org.
