Mt. Vernon Rotary Club achieves new fundraising status

Saturday, January 13, 2018
The Mt. Vernon Rotary Club has achieved the “Every Rotarian, Every Year” level of giving to the Rotary Foundation. The foundation uses these funds to partner with third world clubs to spread the Service Above Self motto around the world. Funds then come back in the form of grants for local service projects such as the recent “Dictionaries for Third graders.” “An exceptional achievement not many clubs reach,” said Michael Addington, assistant district governor.
