BUCKHANNON, W.Va. -The Rotary Club of Buckhannon-Upshur recently celebrated its second anniversary as a newly formed club.
The club has been very active since its inception. Members have volunteered their time to host valuable blood screenings and blood donation drives in conjunction with St. Joseph’s Hospital; have assisted with the COVID vaccination clinics for the community; and recognized the county’s health care workers and first responders dealing with the pandemic. They stepped forward to assist the Upshur Cooperative Parish House in their clothes closet and with food drives and provided donations to community organizations and efforts including the Upshur County Backpack Program, the West Virginia Strawberry Festival, the Mountain CAP Child Development Center and the Upshur County Library.
“Our Rotary Club is dedicated to fulfilling our motto of ‘Service Above Self,’” said Kathy McMurray, President of the Rotary Club of Buckhannon-Upshur. “We work to support valuable programs and organizations throughout our community.”
The club continues to grow with a current roster of forty-one members. The club meets virtually the first and third Tuesdays of each month with informative programs at each meeting.
