ROTARY NEWS by Ron Smith
The Groveland Rotary held their annual all-you-can eat Shrimp and Sausage Feed on Saturday, August 26 and it was a big success. We would like to thank everyone who supported our annual event. It was a very warm afternoon/evening event but we made it work even though our body temperatures may have risen a bit!
This event supports Rotary’s many local community projects such as “Shoes for Kids”, the “Easter Egg Hunt”, dictionaries for third-qrade students, cleaning the highway, scholarships, etc. Without your support we would not be able to fund these projects.
Many comments were heard about the Shrimp Fest being one of the best ever. We would have to agree! Heartfelt thanks to all Rotarians and others who participated and to our local youth who were a tremendous help in serving the food. Particular kudos to Greg Cramblit, Paul Burkett, Sharon Hunt and Karen Seals. They handled the shopping for the food, getting the auction items donated and serving the food. All other participants did an equally outstanding job but there are too many of them to mention. Oops, almost forgot to mention all the “younger” men who did the heavy lifting in setup and cleaning. Without them this event would have not been possible. Thanks so very much again to everyone!
Please consider joining us next year for this event. We guarantee you will enjoy it!
