Rotary Club dinner to fund four local organizations


The Rotary Club of Woodstock has announced that it will donate more than $15,000 to four local organizations next month.

Funds were raised on April 5 when the Rotary held its popular shrimp and catfish dinner. Professionally prepared dinners were served to 465 local residents and their friends in what has become the biggest fund raiser of the year for the 81-year-old club.

The event is an all-hands-on-board project, where every one of the club's 70 or so members is expected to participate. Co-chairs, for the third year, were Cena Hubbell, Richard Glading and Kimery Ryman.

In addition to dinner ticket sales, funds were raised from major event sponsors, table sponsors and donations of merchandise for a silent auction and a raffle.

This year, the Shenandoah Alliance for Shelter is a major recipient of the funding, following a recent fire that destroyed the historic Alms House housing the Alliance.

Funds also will be used to purchase defibrillators for the Woodstock/Edinburg Little League; the Rotary's Coat for Kids project, which provides free coats and jackets for local school children before Christmas; and to local Boy Scouts of America activities.

Including this year's event, the Rotary Club of Woodstock has donated more than $70,000 to the local community through this one fund raising event. This was the 10th annual Shrimp & Catfish Dinner.

The Rotary Club of Woodstock meets at 12:05 p.m. Wednesday at the Moose Club in Woodstock. Members are current and retired owners and managers of local businesses and local professionals.
