MLK Day of Service

Members of our club and friends took the MLK Day of Service seriously!  The day is meant to be a "day on, not a day off" for service.  A volunteer driven, non-profit, in our community, Care & Share Thrift Shoppes, is in need of volunteers.  Many of Care & Share's "traditional" volunteers are in high risk groups for exposure to Covid, and are sheltering at home.  We enjoyed spending the afternoon at Care & Share and interacting with members in our community.

Congrats Class of 2020

As a Rotary club, we have been strong advocates for education and students within our community. Graduation season is upon us, and this year we wish to recognize graduates who are within our ST Rotary Club. Thanks to Covid-19, these students and their families are missing the "Pomp and Circumstance" that typically surrounds a graduation. Let's take a moment to make this milestone a bit more meaningful for our club members by sharing their good news!  Follow the link to see photos!
