Rotary Club News

On Feb. 6, the Mount Jackson-Edinburg Rotary Club celebrated a milestone in their short nine-year history by becoming a 100 percent Paul Harris Fellowship Club. The Club is one of 83 clubs in District 7570, stretching from Greenville, Tennessee to Winchester. The membership was congratulated by District Governor Richard Ray for being one of the top three clubs, of six in the District, who have attained this accomplishment. The award celebrates the membership donating at least $1,000 per person to the Rotary Foundation Polio Plus project, begun by Paul Harris, for eradication of polio worldwide. The club meets at the Denny’s in Mount Jackson on Tuesday mornings at 8 a.m. and welcomes new members.
