Brundidge Rotarians review year

Published 6:07 pm Wednesday, January 30, 2013

The Brundidge Rotary Club held a club assembly Wednesday to discuss the club’s agenda for the year.

Jamie Whitworth, president elect, said the Rotarians have a busy year planned but one that follows basically the same busy schedule from years past.

“The immediate event is our Boston butt sale scheduled for Friday and Saturday at the Piggly Wiggly in Brundidge,” Whitworth said. “The Boston butts are $25 and will be on sale beginning at 2 p.m. Friday and all day Saturday.”

Whitworth said the Boston butt sale is a big fundraiser for the club and helps support its many philanthropic projects.

In March, the Brundidge Rotarians will support the Rotary Youth Leadership Academy by sending two young women to the four-day camp at Camp ASCCA near Dadeville.

Rotarian Michael Lawler said April Garrett and Sarah Hollis will represent the Brundidge Rotary Club at RYLA.

“This is a youth leadership camp and April and Sarah will be invited to share their experiences with us when they return,” Lawler said.

In April, the club will sponsor the Douglas Botts Golf Tournament at Brundidge Country Club. The four-ball tournament is an annual fundraiser for the club and is held in memory of Botts, who was a longtime Rotarian and a Paul Harris Fellow.

In May, the club will announce its scholarship selections and present the scholarships to the high school seniors at their honors day programs.

The Brundidge Rotary Club is actively involved in the Brundidge and Pike County communities. The club supports the Boys and Girls Club, the Boy and Girl Scout programs and awards five $1,000 each year to students in the Pike County schools.

The club also participates in civic projects and provides assistance to those in need, including victims of disasters and individual families.
