Virginia International Raceway

Clayton Myers, Driving Club and Range Director from Virginia International Raceway presented a program the the Chatham Rotary Club on Tuesday, December 18, about the programs and amenities offered at the track. VIR is known for racing, but also offers many programs for the community in gun and automobile safety, including Navy SEAL training, law enforcement training, defensive driving, and more. Skeet shooting, a Go-Cart track, meeting facilities for both small and large groups and a wonderful restaurant are just a few of the offerings available to the public. They also offer rehabilitative programs for veterans and juveniles, and opportunities to involve the community.

Holiday Gathering Notes

We had a delightful time at this year’s holiday gathering. Phil Mauger presided, Debbie Sparks and Lisa Tuite were surprised with Paul Harris Fellow awards, and Robert Adams was honored as a Major Donor of the Rotary Foundation. Everyone enjoyed the lovely surroundings and delicious food from Reid Street Gallery. And for those who lingered, there was spirited Christmas carol karoke! Thank you, Walter Sullivan, for the photos.
