  • In 2010 we completed the fundraising effort to raise $100,000 in matching funds to create a $200,000 Endowment fund to provide local high schools with numerous vocational and trade school related scholarship awards.
  • In 2012 we continued our annual participation with other local Rotary Clubs in an event called "Christmas in April", a Rotary at Work project.
