Check out this great “Spotlight on Community Partners” video from Fayette County Public Schools featuring Rotary Club of Lexington and our “Coats For Kids/Santa Program”. By providing Santas and Elves each year as part of the Kentucky Horse Park’s Southern Lights event, the Rotary Club of Lexington has been able to provide over 10,000 coats to children in need in Fayette County. What a great video and what a tremendous program, one which truly demonstrates our commitment as a Club to “Service Above Self”.
They have successful careers and businesses of their own, but a group of 16 new members of the Rotary Club of Lexington (called Rotary Yearlings because it is their first year as members) will join our construction team on Saturday as the first volunteer group of 2014.
The group will work in our warehouse alongside some of our partner family members to help us prepare for our first build of the year. They will build wall components for the the home of Mason Groves, a single father whose home is being sponsored by the Pat Smith Habitat for Humanity Endowment Fund.
Businesses represented by the Yearling group include: AAA Insurance, Baker’s Insurance, BB&T, Commonwealth Smiles, Edward Jones, Republic Bank, Shrout Tate Wilson Engineers, State Farm Insurance, Title Boxing Club, Trane, and the law firms of DelCotto Law Group, Frost Brown Todd, Hisle & Company, Morgan & Pottinger, and Stites & Harbison.
We can’t thank them enough for their support!
To schedule your group to join us, contact Volunteer Coordinator Risa Richardson at email@example.com. We are currently recruiting groups of 10-15 volunteers for Fridays in February, March and April and for Saturdays in May, June and July.
