Celebrating the Warmth of Old and New Friends in Plano

The five Plano Rotary Clubs celebrated the holidays together with great food, ugly sweaters an a coat drive for Plano Christmas Cops. It was a quick count that revealed a collection of 75-80 new coats for kids of all ages in Plano. This effort has become a tradition for Rotary Clubs in Plano.
