The Rotary Club of Englewood rolled out "Josh the Baby Otter" program locally.  This awareness project is centered around the Josh the Baby Otter book presentation developed by the Joshua Collingsworth Memorial Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) organization.  Parents Blake, a Rotarian, and his wife Kathy Collingsworth, who live in Nebraska, honor the memory of their two-year-old son Joshua, who died on June 4, 2008 after falling into the family pool three days earlier.
