Group efforts

May 01, 2012

The Laurel Rotary will offer music, art and wine tasting at its annual fundraising Spring Potpourri, Friday, May 4 at 7 p.m. at the club house at Patuxent Greens, 14415 Greenview Drive.

Artists will have their works on display and for sale, and local musician Bobby Walters and Laurel pianist Mack Statham will both perform. Wine and cheese will be served.

Admission is $25, which can be paid at the door.

The Spring Potpourri is one way the Laurel Rotary raises funds for projects such as the Outstanding Student scholarships, awarded each quarter to a student from Laurel High and a student from St. Vincent Pallotti High.

The Laurel Rotary is currently focusing on support for Disaster Aid USA, a nonprofit that sends relief boxes with tents, clean water and supplies to areas that are in critical need because of natural or man-made disasters. The tents can be joined in groups to form larger dwellings such as schools or housing for large families.

Joy Kline, a member and past president of Laurel Rotary, said Disaster Aid USA sends a worker in advance to help provide a welcome from those receiving the boxes and to make sure the aid is delivered where it was intended. She said the Laurel Rotary welcomes donations from the community to help the club support Disaster Aid USA.

To make a donation or for information on the Spring Potpourri, contact Kline at 301-498-4950.
