Community Service encourages every Rotarian to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest.
Based on relevant community concerns, available resources, and club service interests, the Community Service Committee works to coordinate our local community service projects. Our club has ongoing service projects in which we participate each year as well as special projects as we are made aware of the need and resources are available. Our ongoing service projects include:
Meals on Wheels
