Jenny Eck, Executive Director of the Helena Friendship Center (right, pictured with club President-Elect, Murray Strong) gave the club an update on the FC's activities and its impact on the lives of individuals and families suffering domestic violence and safety issues.  Usage of the Friendship Center's services continues to grow, unfortunately, and several cases per month must be turned away and referred to alternative, temporary solutions.  A change in FC's planning for 2019 is the decision to not hold an Empty Bowls fundraising event, which Sunrise Rotary has assisted with for the past few years.  Empty Bowls is being evaluated for the significant amount of work required of limited staff (who are needed to provide program services) to put on this fundraiser.
