Bailey’s Crossroads Rotary Club Makes Generous Gift to the Lincolnian Senior Residences

Community action is often born of a clear need that becomes, through the efforts of an individual or small group, a mission to be accomplished.  Such was the case with the Bailey’s Crossroads Rotary Club whose thoughtfulness and generosity will assist with replacement of worn-out courtyard furniture at the Lincolnian Senior Residences, an affordable senior housing community in the Alexandria area of Fairfax County. 

The courtyard furniture, which has been well-used by the residents for many years, is showing signs of age. Upon learning of the need to replace the furniture, Mr. Robert Glasser, treasurer of the Bailey’s Crossroads Rotary Club, advocated for the cause with his fellow club members.  Thanks to Mr. Glasser’s efforts, the Rotary Club and some of its members individually made donations totaling more than $2,900 toward the purchase of new courtyard furniture. 

The Rotary Club presented their checks on May 20 to Mason District Supervisor Penny Gross and Mason District FCRHA Commissioner Robert H. Schwaninger, who attended the monthly Rotary meeting at Goodwin House.

Many thanks to Bailey’s Crossroads Rotary Club and Mr. Glasser for their generosity and caring!  The residents at the Lincolnian Residences are looking forward to enjoying their new courtyard furniture very soon.
