LAKEVILLE ROTARY CLUB BENEFICIARIES

The Lakeville Rotary provides financial support to address the needs of our community. It is the belief of the Lakeville Rotary Club that we can best serve our community by focusing our efforts on scholarships and community projects.

It is our vision that the funds we award meet one of the following criteria:

  • To reach out in helping our family units stay strong
  • To give back to seniors so that they can live a full life in their golden years
  • To help take care of those in a critical time of need.
  • To enhance the educational experience.

Proceeds from this event build the Lakeville Rotary Foundation, which in turn awards funds to many deserving applicants, including but not limited to:

  • Land of Amazement Playground 2.0
