We want to thank the Bentonville Rotary Club for their generous financial contributions and take a moment to let everyone know a bit more about their organization.
What is Rotary?
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together through 35,000 local clubs to make positive, lasting changes in communities at home and abroad. For more than 110 years, Rotary members have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, they are always working to better our world. Rotary International is on the verge of finally eliminating Polio worldwide – an effort that has taken 30 years. Learn more about Rotary International by visiting their website.
About Rotary Club of Bentonville
The Bentonville Rotary Club was chartered in 1924. For each of the past 50 years, the club has been providing scholarships for Bentonville High School graduates. In recent years they have sponsored several major projects including the renovation of Old High Auditorium, the Rotary Conference Room at the Bentonville Library, and Lawrence Plaza just off the downtown square. In addition to supporting Rotary International programs, they are involved in many community projects: supporting Snack Packs for Kids, hosting Rotary Youth Exchange students, and assisting with International Women’s Day events, tree plantings, street clean-ups, parades, races, and more. Recently their club raised funds for the National Child Protection Training Center at NWACC and established an endowed Scholarship Fund for continuing students at NWACC.
