The Washington Noon Rotary Club is more active than ever. Monday’s meeting at King Chicken featured guest speaker Erica Edreira, Executive Director of the Washington Boys & Girls Club.

Edreira outlined the goals and challenges confronting the Boys and Girls Club while thanking Noon Rotarians for their past financial support.

Rotary International also saluted legacy member Jim Hackney, who received several awards for attaining major donor status and Connie Hackney who reached Paul Harris Fellow status.

The club also awarded Reaching for the Stars, a non-profit organization, a $500 grant. Pictured is Noon Rotary Club Grant Chairperson Pam Anderson (2nd from Left) presenting the grant to Reaching for the Stars Director Flo Brooks, DaNeisha Price and Toshia Oden.

Reaching for the Stars After School program targets academic improvement and remediation activities for students who may face academic challenges in the classroom.

The Washington Noon Rotary Club is also preparing to staff the beer tent during the April 16th Drifters Concert at the Washington-Warren Airport and also invites the public to purchase tickets to the Friday, April 29th Reverse Raffle fundraiser at the Washington Country Club.
