Rotary to host breakfast at QU

The Quincy Rotary Club will host a pancake breakfast from 7 to 11 a.m. Saturday, March 2, in the Quincy University main dining room at 18th and Lind Streets.

There is no charge to attend, but a free-will offering will be taken. All money raised will go toward projects supported by the Rotary, including Sportsmen Against Hunger, an annual program where local hunters donate their tagged deer to be processed for local food pantries; the Christmas turkey distribution to Salvation Army Christmas food baskets; the Washington School reading program where Rotarians read weekly to third-graders; and a Christmas party for Washington School special education students.

Other programs supported by Rotary include Blessings in a Backpack, an association with Adams School where Rotarians sponsor a program to ensure kids in need have food for the weekend, and Rotary Teen Career Day, a day in which high school students are paired with Rotarians in various professions in their workplaces.

The Quincy Rotary Club was chartered in 1915 and currently has 100 members. The group meets at noon Tuesdays at the Quincy Holiday Inn.
