Portsmouth Rotary Club and the Virginia Beach Courthouse Rotary Club
We’d like to recognize both Bill Oast and Letha McDowell for their community involvement with the Portsmouth Rotary Club and the Virginia Beach Courthouse Rotary Club.
Bill distributed dictionaries to third grade children in public and private schools in Portsmouth as part of the Portsmouth Rotary Club’s Dictionary Project, a nationwide effort to enhance literacy. To learn more about the project, click here.
Each year the Virginia Beach Rotary Club donates thousands of dollars to international humanitarian aid projects as well as local nonprofit organizations. As a Partner in Education with VBCPS, they recently awarded a $1,000 grant to support the division’s Beach Bags Program. This is the second grant awarded this year to help to provide weekend food items to struggling families.
