Meals on Wheels
Our first service project of the day was making place mats for Meals on Wheels of Maryland
Our second project was making no-sew fleece blankets to be donated to INOVA Children's Hospital in Virginia.
A special thanks to the (former) Anne Arundel Ladies Civitan Club for generously donating the fleece to us.
No Chesapeake District event is complete without a friendly competition.
Governor Anushe and Lt. Governor Bailey hosted Junior Civitan Trivia throughout the day. The team who answered correctly won possession of Chessie until the next question.
These were a couple of their questions:
Do you know how many Junior Civitan Clubs and how many Districts there are in Junior Civitan?
Do you know how many former US Presidents were Junior Civitans? (hint, there were 5 of them)
