They may number only about 70 members, but to use a basketball analogy, they play high above the rim.

We're talking about the Lakewood Ranch Rotary Club which Wednesday bought and donated $3,000 worth of nonperishable food -- about 2,985 pounds worth -- to the Manatee Food Bank.

And that's after dividing more than $100,000 in grants to two dozen charities just a couple of months ago.
