|August Project - Collinsville Library Cleanup|
OTHER RECENT PROJECTS
Here are members Jim McMillan, Wade Nelson, and Jim Rountree loading the truck with items purchased at WalMart for our August Project 2018 - replenishing the student Pantry at Patrick Henry Community College.
Henry County Rotary members often volunteer as a group at the Collinsville Library to wash windows, wash toys, dust, and organize shelved books. At our last outing there we noticed how dirty their mouse pads were. So we investigated prices and quality and designed a pretty mouse pad to replace the existing ones. We hope that the website address printed on the pad will lead the curious to Rotary and perhaps generate new members for us. We cleared this project first with library director Rick Ward.
Our End of Summer Project is always a VaTech Football 2 ticket season pass raffle. This popular raffle raises money for our ongoing projects. A big THANK YOU to all who participated!!
