|Rotary Club of Elkins Summer Round-Up|
|The new Rotary International year began July 1 and the Rotary Club of Elkins was ready for a new year of community service with the installation of new officers and Board members to serve during the 2017-2018 year.
Installation of Officers and BOD
Continuing Board Directors included: Matt Davis, Patricia Schoonover, Jeffrey Welshonce, Sid Gillispie and Jon Steen.
|Community service initiatives kicked off in mid-July with the Randolph County Humane Society’s “Woofstock”, an annual fundraising event that brings needed funds to the county’s animal shelters.
The Rotary Club of Elkins offered their popular Chicken BBQ, with all proceeds going toward the Randolph County Humane Society (RCHS). A check for nearly $1500.00 was handed to Lisa Preusch, RCHS Board Director at the following Monday Rotary meeting.
During the Augusta Heritage Festival in mid-August, another two hundred chickens flew off the Rotary BBQ pit!
This event was a club fundraiser with proceeds to be used throughout the 2017-2018 Rotary year for various community projects.
|Blood & Health Screening|
|Also, in mid-August nearly 75 local residents took advantage of discounted prices during the recent Rotary Club of Elkins Blood & Health Screenings. This bi-annual event, held at the First United Methodist Church in Elkins, in partnership with Davis Medical Center, is one of the Rotary Club of Elkins’ community service projects. The next Blood & Health Screening is scheduled for February 2018.
Youth Health Services and Advanced Hearing Solutions, both of Elkins, offered health tips and hearing tests at the event.
A drawing for an Amazon Echo Dot was also held, with Chad Harmon holding the winning ticket.
|Family Rotary Picnic|
|Elkins Rotarians said goodbye to the summer season with an evening of fellowship during the annual summer Family Picnic. Catered by The Vintage of Elkins, the downhome picnic buffet was enjoyed by attending Rotarians, family and friends.
