Garden club ready to meet
The Derry Garden Club will hold its first meeting since March with a tour, business meeting and lunch at Bedford Gardens in Lee. Members must have registered in advance for this event as we are limited to the number of people attending. Our next meeting will be in Aug. 7 at a member's home. Visit derrygardenclub.org or information and times. New members are always welcome.
The Derry Rotary Club and Derry Village Rotary Club reached out to support the Derry Chapter of 68 Hours of Hunger with a joint $2,000 donation.
68 Hours of Hunger provides meals to children that typically do not have food on the weekends while schools are in session.
Derry is home to the two Rotary clubs. Each group operates independently but join together on various community and charitable projects.
Derry Village Rotary Club President Matt Johnson and Derry Rotary Club President Adam Mead issued a joint statement on the donation, saying "With social distancing a best practice during this outbreak, most of us are limited in what we can do physically to help our friends and neighbors. That means we must do what we can to empower others on our behalf. This donation represents contributions from each and every member of our two clubs who stepped up to address the immediate need in our community. The fabric of our community remains strong and will see us through this difficult situation."
