Shop and support playground

CANstruction theme announced

The theme for the 2020 CANstruction activity — a community project benefiting the local homeless shelter — will be “Favorite Movie”. Judging will be held on April 17.

Businesses, organizations, churches, clubs and others arrange food cans (unopened) in creative ways to make something pertaining to the theme. And after this A.M. Rotary-sponsored event is over, the food items are donated to the food pantry at the Clinton County Homeless Shelter.

The CANstruction projects can be CANstructed and located in the facility of the group that collects the cans and builds the creation.

To join the contest, please call the homeless shelter at 937-382-7058 by noon Friday, March 27 and ask for Ginny or Amber.

Last year, the Clinton County Community Action Program, Inc. won “Best in Theme”.
