Rotary celebrates the holidays at Park Slope women’s shelter

Brooklyn Bridge Rotaries brought fellowship and food — and plenty of holiday good cheer — to the Frances Residency in Park Slope on Dec. 27

The club held its Christmas week meeting at the residency, which is part of the CHIPS program at 200 Fourth Ave., serving dinner to its young mothers and moms-to-be, and leaving gifts.
