Purcell Rotary Club
A 100% Paul Harris Club
Justin Blankenship, President | Rotary District 5770 |
We meet every Wednesday at noon at Trinity Methodist Church, 211 N 2nd Ave. Purcell, OK 73080
We are community.
Whether that is providing food for the high school food closet or raising money
for a health clinic in rural Uganda, Purcell Rotarians are active making community - here and around the world -
a better place. Come join us in making our community a better place.
Chili Lunch, February 21st. Trinity Methodist Church
Tickets will be available from any Rotarian. Chili, tea and a coookie for
a reasonable price and proceeds will be used for the Rotary Scholarship Fund.
Purcell Rotarians raised $3294 for the Dragon food pantries. This will go
a long way to providing food for junior high and high school students in our community
that would otherwise go hungry.
October was Polio Awareness Month
Purcell Rotarians raised almost $400 in the battle to eradicate polio.
This money will be doubled by the Gates foundation.
Every year Purcell Rotary recognizes some of the outstanding teachers
we have here in Purcell. They joined us for lunch and each
received a check in appreciation of their service.
Items donated from our members ranging from football tickets to trees to
an evening of "wine and dine." $2025 was raised that will be used for scholarships
to high school students.
Our annual bowling fundraiser is always a good time and this year it did not disappoint.
Good or bad didn't matter as six lanes were active with Rotarians. Everyone had
a good time and were amused at team Yrator's tacky bowling shirts.
Rotary Gives Scholarships to area High School Students
Every year Purcell Rotary gives away $500 scholarships high school seniors in
Purcell and Lexington. This year's winners are Raigan Thompkins and Cheyenne Fulks
from Purcell High School and Kaitlin Humbarger and Rachel Beason from Lexington
Rotarians Volunteer at Junior High Track Meet
It's spring and that means it's time for the junior high track meet. And just
as sure as the trees turn green, Rotarians can be found at the track meet
running stopwatches and dispensing concessions. It takes almost 30 volunteers
to staff the whole meet. We consider it a privilege to serve our community.
Chili Lunch Raises $1000
The benafactor of our annual chili lunch was again the BARDA Medical in rural Uganda.
The money will be used for supplies in this maternity/children clinic.
