Rotary raises $2,000 for local food pantry

-A A +A


On behalf of every member of the Carrollton Rotary Club I express my sincere thanks for the community support and generosity shown at our first pancake breakfast benefit for the Carroll County food pantry.

When Dennis Goff brought to our attention recently the dire need for food items at the pantry, there was no doubt that we would respond with a plan to serve our almost famous pancakes. 

Many thanks to our partner Rhonda Welch and Chef Jamey and their staff at Down On Main Restaurant; UK Cooperative Extension Office; Mark Bates; Cornerstone Floral; Ramada Inn Sparta; Carroll County Memorial Hospital; Save-A-Lot; KFC; McDonald’s; NAS; Jill Sachleben who won split-the-pot and donated her winnings back; Carroll County Chamber of Commerce; The News-Democrat; and celebrity chefs Ruth Baxter and Greg Goff. And a very special thanks to all of you who came out to have breakfast.

We will soon be presenting a check to the food pantry for close to $2,000.
