A direct link to the Gift and Give Auction  (Still time to Sponsor or Donate)

Opening Opportunity – WE ARE ROTARY: Thanks to the generosity of our Auction sponsors, donors and buyers, we were able to construct a meaningful 20121 Budget. Our budget is oriented around community needs. After a tough year, we look forward to a new year of service.

 

The Rotary Club of Lexington Park is planning an online auction in late 2020. Soon, we will be seeking donated items to sell or auction. Might you consider donating a tax deductible item to our forthcoming Auction. Donation details will follow in mid October.

 

Opening Opportunity – WE ARE ROTARY: The Rotary Club of Lexington Park was one of two Rotary District 7620 Clubs to sweep three Gold Awards in the recent 2019-2020 Virtual District Conference. The Club was also recognized for excellence in giving to the Rotary International Foundation and being among the 9 clubs to agree to sponsor Youth Conference.

Connecting the World – I AM ROTARY: Congratulations to Trish Powell, who became the 2020-2021 President of the Rotary Club of Lexington Park on July 1, 2019.
