Quota Collect

Quench in our hearts, O Lord, all fires of selfishness,
Unfold to us the joys of true friendship,
Open our minds to a better understanding of service,
Teach us the real meaning of sharing,
And help us to hold high those principles of Quota for which we stand

Quota Cares Month

March is Quota Cares Month.  Each Quota club is challenged to do something for children or women during the month.  We in Lake County took on a few events.

 March 10th, several of us spent the day at Broadmoor School.  This school helps the special needs children.

We came up with a craft and helped them with it.  Played games, did puzzles and then had a snack.


Working on crafts.




We also put together bags for other students that could not be with us this day. 

Then on March 24th, we helped out at the Easter Egg hunt at the North Mentor Centenary Methodist Church.  This is one that we help out with every year.  Children get to come for the day and just have fun, see a puppet show, do crafts, pet service animals and get a picture with the Easter Bunny.





Puppet Show

The Easter Grass Sensory Room
 The funnest thing to see is watching the kids in the Sensory Easter grass room.  It is a classroom that is filled with Easter grass. They go in and just play in the grass.

Our last project was collecting children's books and donating them to Cops for Kids
