Rotarians Sponsor Lord’s Place Dinner

The Rotary Club of Wellington Florida recently completed a community outreach project with the Lord’s Place.

Members of the club had dinner and an evening of camaraderie on Thursday, May 14 with the men of the Lord’s Place shelter in Boynton Beach, a homeless shelter for men who are reaching out for help. The Lord’s Place not only gives these men shelter, but teaches them job skills and helps them get back on their feet and back into society.

The members of the Rotary Club “broke bread” with the men and learned about many of their circumstances. The members of the club were also given a tour of the grounds, including the vegetable garden, as well as the living quarters for the residents. For all of members of the club who attended, it was an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

The program was coordinated by Maggie Zeller, community outreach director of the Rotary Club of Wellington.

The club plans to hold the event next year and in years to come. For more information about the club, contact Bob Salerno, public relations director, at (561) 512-8247.
