Habitat project July 15th with Habitat of Wake County building a home in the Crosstowne Village of South Raleigh. Raleigh Rotarians and six boys from the Lake Waccamaw Boys and Girls home assisted with interior framing and insulation work. Raleigh Rotary plans to conduct a similar event each quarter with the next Habitat workday in October 2017.
The Works is the City of Raleigh’s signature 4th of July celebration and Raleigh Rotary has partnered with the city to help make this an enjoyable event for the entire family by providing inexpensive refreshments and children’s games and volunteers to help staff various booths and activities across the downtown venue. Rotarians get a chance to make cotton candy, sell popcorn, cold water, and watermelon, offer free children’s games and prizes to youngsters and operate a dunking tank for entertainment for all.
