Freeport-Merrick Rotary does its part during the pandemic

For more than 75 years, the Freeport-Merrick Rotary has lived by one motto: “Service above self.” And although the pandemic has hindered the club’s usual fundraising efforts, members have continued to extend a helping hand to those who need it most.

“It’s a small club . . . but we do what we can with what we have,” said Vice President Marc Rigueur.

Freeport-Merrick Rotary steps up to help

For 75 years, the Freeport-Merrick Rotary Club has lived by its motto, “Service above self.”
