RECYCLING & DONATIONS
Jan Smirnow collects cell phones and used ink
cartridges to raise money for the GCTC. Jan is also
collecting pull tabs that will be donated to the Ronald
McDonald House. Please SAVE yours and give to Jan!
Note from Jan: “Thanks to our members for donating
those ink cartridges for the club. It really helps our
kitty. However, please note that only the real cartridges
purchased from office supply stores qualify for us to
sell. Generic ink cartridges are not accepted. Again,
thanks for those donations and keep them coming.”
Stacey deLucia is still collecting prescription glasses
and sunglasses for the Lion’s Club of South Florida.
John Lobota will accept member donations of metals
such as brass, copper and lead weights that we find
while metal detecting. He will take them to the recycling
plant to sell for the metal content. All cash raised will
help to replenish our treasury, so please see John to
donate! Don’t let all that digging go to waste!
