I attended my first Rutland Community Club meeting Tuesday but I am ashamed that it took me so long to get to one. I was one of five people there along with several members of the Envirothon Team. The Team will progress to the national competition in late July and was at the meeting to request community support to help defray their expenses. It was a good feeling to be there to help the Club spend $500 on such a worthy group. The Envirothon Team will be doing some quick fundraising – such as a car wash — to help defray the teams’ travel costs to Arizona. I know my van regularly needs a good wash and it would be another way to support the group. Watch for information on their fundraising efforts!
Other things that the Community Club discussed included the improvements to the Rutland website, the painting of the hamburger sign which should begin this month and, of course, UffDa Day in October.
