A Great Event for a Great Cause
The Granville Rotary Foundation supports scholarships and projects locally that directly benefit the Granville community and beyond, including the new pedestrian bridge connecting the Evans bike path to Raccoon Valley Park. We also support the building of water projects in Haiti in conjunction with the Worthington AM Club and the Rotary Club of Ounaminthe, Haiti. So far we have built 18 clean water wells.
This year’s fundraising goal is $25,000. Granville Rotary notes that this event change will enable the club to direct 100% of the proceeds to support the many service projects of Granville Rotary.
