Be a Super Bowl winner with the Emmaus Rotary Club
BY DEBBIE GALBRAITH
The Emmaus Rotary Club is offering a chance to be a Super Bowl winner and support Emmaus Rotary Club’s food program. They have been distributing food to East Penn School District students for over three years.
Participants purchase a square on a 10 by 10 grid and if your square matches one of the end of quarter scores or end of game score you will win. More importantly all proceeds will be used to keep the food program going.
The Emmaus Rotary Club will collect money for the squares up to the day before the big game Feb. 12. To participate or for more information, contact Gary Guthrie at email@example.com.
