Tahoe Douglas Rotary helps the local Boys & Girls Club
June 1, 2011
SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – More than 20 local Tahoe Douglas Rotarians donated time and hard work at the local Boys and Girls Club on April 30 as part of Rotarians At Work Day. The Rotarians were joined by six kids and parents to build a stage, paint walls and cabinets, and remove broken mirrors.
Rotarians At Work Day is the last Saturday in April each year where clubs around the world identify a hands-on project that all members can participate in to help their local community. Tahoe Douglas Rotary selected to work with the Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe to give back to the South Shore community and to use the project to model community service behavior for younger generations.
“Working with the Boys & Girls Club, we identified a need for a small stage in one room to be used by the kids to perform concerts,” said Craig Schorr, President of Tahoe Douglas Rotary. “We also asked our Rotarians to bring their kids to the work day to learn the value and joy of performing community service.”
