Greenville Rotary awards grant for summer programing


GREENVILLE — To help with summer programing the Greenville Rotary has donated $500 to the Gateway Youth Program as part of their ongoing efforts to build strong, safe and healthy communities. The grant will be used to help with costs for summer activities for the youth involved in field trips, nutrition/fitness classes, art classes and a spring recognition banquet.

“All of these summer activities help our local youth with getting involved in the community, field trips that expose kids to new activities, learning about nutrition, fitness. They will also work on attaining goals and have an opportunity to simply have some good, simple fun with positive role models,” said Ruth Barga, support specialist.
