-A +A
Lincoln Rotary Club President Harvey Ulijohn recently presented a $3,000 check to Karen and Juan Hernandez for the Lincoln Youth Center. The funds are being used to keep the center open for the full summer. The center serves up to 50 children daily during the summer and more during the school year. In addition, a $1,000 check was given to Darla Wegener for the library. Each week Rotary presents a book to the library in the name of the speaker for the meeting. This is a program that Lincoln’s club has sponsored for many years. Lincoln Rotary has a membership of more than 50 members and meets weekly at noon Thursdays at the Women’s Club.
