Is there anything else you would like to share that would assist another club in duplicating this project in their community? It was a great time for the members that were able to attend we made 2 double batches of 3 types of muffins and then did a tour of the facility.

A couple of our club members have had family stay at Ronald McDonald House so it was very gratifying to give back.

The muffins are part of a lunch/snack program that is available for the families.
