On December 12, 2019, Rotary Club of Utica members, Michelle Brandstadt and President Joe Caruso, visited the knitting club at Acacia Village. 
All year long the ladies in the club lovingly and generously knit the most beautiful hats, scarves, and ear warmers for children of Columbus School. President Joe delivered them to the school the next day. Each article came with a tag that read "Made with love especially for you by your 'grandmothers' at Acacia Village." We thank the ladies for sharing the kindness of the season.
