Today’s sponsor:

Rotary District 7690. Rotary is a huge organization, with 1.2 million members in thousands of clubs around the world. Rotary District 7690 is located in the central Piedmont region of North Carolina and is comprised of 49 clubs, all of which are active in supporting their communities. One significant effort across the District is the RUSH (Rotarians United to Stop Hunger) program which encourages clubs to raise money and collect food to help feed the hungry. Started just two years ago this program has already raised enough to provide tens of thousands of meals for our communities.
