John Lasher from the Community Foundation of Warren County came to speak to us about the Foundation and it’s focus.
In 1949, a small group of men and women thought that Warren County should have a foundation that would be able to provide support for education and various other projects for the citizens of Warren County. From its initial modest beginnings, this foundation has grown into a multi-million dollar organization.
In the last 5 years, the Community Foundation of Warren County has made distributions totaling over $10 million to local non-profit organizations and to scholarships for students attending colleges or trade schools.
Warren Rotarians were happy to help out Saturday morning to help pack up food for children on our community.

12 Warren Rotarian showed up early this past Saturday morning to pack food for the backpack program. We packed about 530 in 2 hours!
Each backpack contains enough food for at least two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners and two snacks. Depending on the type and amount of food items within the backpack, children may be provided more meals than that. The contents of a recent backpack include: a box of Tasty-oh’s cereal, beefaroni, chicken ravioli, macaroni and cheese, and a four pack of mandarin oranges.
