Rotary furnishes furniture for troops

 

Troops catching a break at the USO lounge at the San Francisco International Airport can now lounge in $50,000 of new leather furniture, thanks to local Rotary clubs.

Mark Flegel, of Flegels Fine Furniture in Menlo Park, agreed to help when fellow Rotarian Don Bowcutt asked for five new recliners.

After working with 10 clubs, and Hancock & Moore leather furniture in North Carolina that discounted the cost by 60 percent, they donated 10 recliners, a sofa, loveseat, and six dining chairs.
