Two Check Presentations Made at Rotary Meeting

White Energy check to Food PantryTwo check presentations were made Tuesday at this week's meeting of the Russell Rotary Club.

The first of which was the last installment of a $3,000 donation to the Russell County Food Pantry from White Energy. On Saturday, October 13, White Energy hosted its annual golf tournament to benefit the local food pantry. $3,000 in cash as well as food donations from the participating players were collected from that tournament. White Energy Plant Controller Dave Harry said participants made out checks and donations straight to the food pantry this year so installments of part of the money could get there at an earlier date.

Also Tuesday, the Russell Rotary Club presented the Russell Recreation Center with a check for $500. This donation is aimed at helping the Rec Center make payments on exercise equipment and supplies.
