Letter to the editor: Organization does more than most realize

Very few people in the East Otter Tail area are familiar with the Degree Of Honor Protective Association Service Club, yet this small group of 18 people has done so much for this community.

This past year they have donated more than $2,100 to help people less privileged. They have spent their time and money contributing to local organizations, including fundraisers for those with medical needs.

Their list is long: Perham Community Food Shelf, Perham Boys and Girls Club, Wadena School Library, Feed My Starving Children, Ronald McDonald House, Salvation Army and flood victims in Minot. In addition to the money they have donated, they gave more than 397 pounds of food, clothing, cleaning supplies and paper products.

I feel the EOT Focus should keep their readers informed of how local service clubs benefit the community. This is a human-interest story.

For information about the Degree Of Honor Service Club or to become a member, please call our Regional Director, Sylvia Soeth at 218-346-6676.
