Collecting for animal rescue

 LIBERTY, NY — The Teen Advisory Group of the Liberty Public Library recently organized a collection drive for the animals at Liberty’s local animal shelter, the Catskill Animal Rescue (C.A.R.E.).

 The teens were involved in all aspects of the collection drive, from making phone calls to creating flyers and dropping off all the collected items.  As a result of their efforts and our generous community, they collected over 150 items ranging from dog food to bottles of detergent, plus $150 in direct monetary contributions to C.A.R.E.

Rotary donation honors Tom Moore, supports youth

HONESDALE, PA — “Tom loved children,” said his wife Arlene. “He would have really appreciated this donation.”  

Tom Quest Moore, 89, a former Honesdale Rotarian from Waymart, passed away on January 4.  In his memory, Honesdale Rotary donated $250 to the Interact Club at Honesdale High School. More than 25 members of the student-age (“junior”) Rotary Club showed up to accept the donation and applaud the gesture—and Moore.

“We usually donate in a member’s memory to the Wayne County Community Foundation,” Honesdale Rotary secretary Kay Reynolds told the students, “but Arlene knew that for Tom, your club was the best choice.”

Moore, who was born in England, emigrated to the U.S. and had a long career with the YMCA. He was known for his quick wit, jokes and silly camp songs, according to a release from Rotary. “He had a super-fun personality,” said Reynolds. “We miss him at Rotary.”

A service for Moore will be held on March 26 at 2 p.m. at the South Canaan Free Methodist Church in Waymart.  He is survived by his wife, three children, six grandchildren—and tons of friends, a Rotary spokesperson said.

Honesdale Rotary meets twice a month and welcomes new members. Visit Honesdale Rotary on Facebook to learn more.
