Upcoming Events
4th of July was a huge success for the Rotary club! The Watermelon Contest was MC'd by one of our newest members Owen Smigelski who led the event through 8 categories of competition. Prizes were awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers and there was more than enough watermelon to go around for everyone. The Snack Bar was another big winner with its sale of churros, popcorn, drinks and more. So many thanks go to Valerie for making the event not only successful but also profitable!  Thank you to all the wonderful members who participated!
