Bond's Meadow Rotary Club celebrates first anniversary
The Rotary Club of Bond's Meadow has completed its first year of service to the community. To commemorate their first anniversary, the Rotarians held a family get-together in the hangar of the Jack Piage Airfield on Sept. 16. Members were encouraged to attend and bring their families.
The organization presented its past president, Melvin Mills of Mills Communications, with the Paul Harris Award for outstanding service to the club and the community. Mr. Mills was instrumental in starting the Bond's Meadow club.
During the club's first year, members raised money through a St. Patrick's Dinner to help support the Literacy Council of Carroll County, plus several other county and Rotarian charities.
The club meets at 7:15 a.m. every Tuesday morning at Bullock's Airport Inn.
