Chatham Rotarians met on a hot, muggy and rainy afternoon at Chatham Rotary Park to spruce up the park and clear out overgrown bushes, shrubs and grassy areas. Phil Mauger, Bill Black, Alisa Davis, Chris Lund and his daughter, Molly Holmes, Ted and Marty Brunning, Joe Rogers, Lisa Tuite and Walter Sullivan worked hard until the rain drove the crew inside Reid Street Gallery for great snacks and munchies provided by Gentleman's Ridge.  Even with all the hard work, a great time was had by all and Rotarians are looking forward to a more extensive remodel and upgrade to the Chatham Rotary Park in the near future. (Pictured below: The Cleanup Crew, Chris Lund & Joe Rogers)

Chatham Rotary President Elect Alisa Davis presented Chatham Rotarian and Director of the Pittsylvania County Library, Lisa Tuite, a check for $200 in support of the Friends of the Library Program.  The donation from fellow Rotarians was in response to a presentation about summer reading programs at the library. The Friends of the Library support the library with advocacy and financial support for the many programs offered by the library, including summer reading programs, crafts and other events for children and adults. Thanks to the support from our Friends and the generosity of groups like the Chatham Rotary Club and its individual members, most programs at the library are free or very low cost, reducing or eliminating and barriers to participation by all citizens.
