For the seventh consecutive year and the ninth in the past 10, the Alton-Godfrey Rotary Club was the No. 1 producer for the Alton Salvation Army’s Christmas bell-ringing project. Fifty club members rang bells Dec. 19 and Dec. 20, producing a record amount of $5,415, more than twice the second-place finisher.
“We are always grateful for the contribution of the Rotary, and thank them for their participation over the years,” the Salvation Army’s Lt. Bryan Ellison said.
