thumb_fc86a09f3757c18The Branson-Hollister Rotary Club’s Annual ‘Read with Rotary’ event was held at the Boys & Girls Club of the Ozarks this past week.

Branson-Hollister Rotarians partnered with Dixie Stampede, Western Taney County Ambulance District, and the Branson Police Department to provide horse races, reading with the students, ambulance tours, just to name a few of the after school activities.

“I’m proud to be a Rotarian,” stated Halley Fleming, Board Member for Branson-Hollister Rotary Club. “It is always a pleasure to see children interact with community leaders while learning how important it is to read and continue reading throughout life.”

Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 34,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.

The Object of Rotary is to “encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise.” Rotary is a service organization. Since 1910, the Rotary Motto has been “Service Above Self.”

The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of the Ozarks is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
