The Mt. Vernon Rotary Club recently held its semi-annual recognition ceremony for members who reached milestone levels of giving to the Rotary Foundation. Donations made to The Rotary Foundation will go on to help communities around the world.

Gary Hamm, district governor for District 6510, was in attendance to present pins. Lanis Lenker of the Rotary International Foundation and Paul Harris Society Chair Gary Crawford talked to the club about the benefits the Rotary Foundation provides around the world. The mission of the Rotary Foundation is “to enable Rotarians to advance World Understanding, Goodwill and Peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty.”
