WAKE FOREST — The Wakefield Rotary club of Wake Forest invites those interested in joining a service organization to a free Get to Know Rotary lunch Thursday, Jan. 23, 11:45 a.m.-1 p.m. at the TPC Wakefield Plantation, 2201 Wakefield Plantation Drive, Raleigh.
Wakefield Rotary club is a community service organization made up of individuals who value service above self. Chartered in 2009, the club is a voluntary organization of diverse individuals in business, government, non-profit and community groups united to provide humanitarian service in the community, state, country and world.
In the past year, Wakefield Rotarians have served as marshals during the annual Rex Open Golf Tournament; picked up litter along Ligon Mill Road in Wake Forest for the Adopt-a-Highway program; helped collect more than 50,000 books for a district-wide children’s literacy project; and raised more than $5,700 for local youth initiatives in the annual Lucky 13 Reverse Raffle & Dinner, among other activities.
In mid-February, the club will participate in a Stop Hunger Now meal packaging program with a goal to assemble 10,000 meals that will be shipped around the world to support school feeding programs and crisis relief.
The Jan. 23 lunch will feature Wake Forest Commissioner Jim Thompson who will discuss his new job after being elected by Wake Forest voters in November.
To attend, contact Donna Bishop at 919-426-8035 or [email protected]
