Clintonville Rotary Responds to Student Mask Needs
Clintonville – The children attending Clintonville Public Schools will not have to go without masks during the pandemic, thanks to the Clintonville Rotary Club. Superintendent David Dyb, who is a Rotarian, worked with fellow Rotarian, Connie Mitchell, who applied for a $2,500 grants from Rotary District 6220, as part of their Covid-19 Rotary Responds disaster grant program. “When we were informed that additional Rotary District Response to COVID-19 grant funds were available, we quickly recognized that this would be a way for the Clintonville Rotary Club to use our limited budget, in combination with grant funds, to make a more meaningful impact to the health and safety of our community,” said Mitchell. The Clintonville Rotary Club donated an additional $250 to bring the total to $2,750 which was used to purchase over 900 masks for the Clintonville public and parochial schools.
