First Thing: Xemplar Club Distributes Funds to Farmington-Area Nonprofits

The service club will hand out $22,000 today to 42 organizations, double the number the group supported last year.

At noon today, the Xemplar Club will make 42 local non-profit and school organizations very happy. 

The club will hand out checks totalling $22,000 during its third annual "Donation Day", at John Cowley & Sons in downtown Farmington. This year, the group will support double the number it did last year and bring the club's three-year total to more than $65,000. We'll publish coverage of the event this afternoon.
