Fiddlin' 5K Walk/Run for the Arts

 

Thanks to all of our runners, walkers, volunteers and Mars Hill University for making the 2019 Fiddlin'5K the most successful one ever.  We also appreciate all those who contributed food and drinks for the end of the event. The food tent was a big hit.


We hope to see everyone back next year.

Charity Golf Tournament

I just want to thank everyone that attended and supported our  Madison County Rotary Club Charity Golf Tournament last Saturday. The  weather was beautiful and the course was in amazing shape. Thanks to  Bojangle's for breakfast and Chick-Fil-A for lunch.  Such a nice gesture for them to do this for our club and our guests. 


We raised money for the "underserved youth" in Madison County and had fun doing it!


We will tee it up again next year in May of 2020. (exact date to be determined)

So.... Come and join us!!


Thanks again!!

This photo shows the packed crowd for the latest community talk sponsored by Madison County Libraries and the Rotary Club of Madison County. 


Willa Wyatt gave an update on the progress toward rehabilitation of the historic Mars Hill Anderson Rosenwald School.

Built in 1928, this school is the last one standing in Western North Carolina of the over 5000 Rosenwald schools built throughout the southeast to serve segregated African American students. 


When completed, the building will serve as a community cultural center and an interpretative museum to enhance education and understanding of black history.

On Saturday, October 27th the club celebrated the dedication of the Bird Garden at the Marshall Public Library, recognizing the Rotary Club of Madison County as a partner in establishing the native plants on the library grounds. Also included were a tour of all the library's grounds followed by a morning of maintenance. Thanks to all that helped and  especially to Ed McNally for organizing the event.
