First Year to Volunteer: The Rotary Club of Highlands

For over 70 years, members of the Highlands Rotary Club have volunteered in their local mountain community. Service projects have included providing free dental screenings at Highlands School, chartering a Rotaract Service Club for young adults and promoting education through college scholarships, to name a few. We are proud to be part of the good work the Highland Rotarians do to improve the quality of life for everyone where they live. Robert Shipp introduced The Dictionary Project to his club this year after visiting several Rotary meetings in Savannah, Ga, where got a firsthand account of the importance of a paperback dictionary. The Rotary Club of Highlands decided to sponsor Highlands Elementary school in Macon County, NC. Teachers and students were thrilled to receive the  gift and expressed their gratitude in colorful thank-you letters.
