The Rotary Club of Prince Frederick has continued its support for the hungry by contributing $916 to SMILE, an inter-denominational food ministry serving southern Calvert County.
Interim Rotary Club President, Rich Fleming, recently presented a check to Shirley Havelka, Store Manager, and Bruce Robinson, Board President of SMILE.
“All Rotary Clubs are encouraged to raise special funding to assist the home-less and food-challenged, and our club has chosen to support SMILE each of the last several years,” commented Fleming. “Many donors contribute during the Thanksgiving to Christmas period, so we chose to help replenish their supplies during this off-season. The demand for food support continues year-round,” Fleming added.
The Rotary Club of Prince Frederick has served Calvert County for over fifty years. In addition to supporting the hungry, the club also awards scholarships to graduating seniors and provides dictionaries to each third grade student in the county. As a part of Rotary International, the Prince Frederick club also supports the eradication of polio and other international Rotary campaigns.
The Rotary Club meets the second and fourth Mondays at Stoney’s in Prince Frederick. For more information contact, Rich Fleming at 443-550-6011.
