Rotary Club offers free salt and sand to Shelton seniors

The Derby-Shelton Rotary Club will deliver five gallon buckets of sand and salt mixture to seniors and disabled individuals residing in Shelton and Derby to spread on walkways and driveways during the winter.

Those interested in receiving a bucket, to be delivered from Dec. 11 to 14, can sign up at the Shelton Senior Center, contact, or call 203-929-1484, ext. 227. (Editor's note: The phone number that appeared in the print edition had an extra digit in it due to a submission error; we regret any confusion this may have caused.)

Deadline for registering is Dec. 8. Individuals residing in housing developments that already provide sand are not eligible.

The Rotary Club is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standard in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world.
