Gary Welch volunteers to make Santa available for several families, functions and organizations each year during the holiday season.  This year he collected donations totaling $1,135 for his services and he in turn donated all of these funds to the Rotary Club of Ankeny.  In recognition of this donation, all the work he does as chair of the club's youth committee, and all the other volunteer work he does, President Digmann named him the club's Rotarian of the month for January, 2019.
