Outgoing Club President, Drew Owen, explained, “Each year, our Club accepts applications from area non-profits for capital projects. Our allocations committee, chaired by Mike Lewis, reviews each application to determine the need and the impact it will have on the community. The committee awards our larger grants in this manner and each Club board member is able to allocate $250 toward the capital needs of an area non-profit of their choice.”

Incoming Club President, Brad Kimbro, said, “This is my favorite Rotary Club meeting of the year. We are able to tangibly demonstrate our motto of “Service Above Self” as we fund the needs of our area non-profits which are truly serving the needs of many in our community.”
