Two events commemorate, support Rollins Club
ROLLINS — To commemorate their over-75 years as a community service organization, the Women of Rollins Club is hosting a reunion honoring past members, honorary members, current and prospective members on Tuesday, June 11, at noon, at the Rollins School house on Methodist Camp Road. A luncheon will be served, there will be a door prize and you can expect great fellowship.
The Rollins School house was built in 1912 and used as a school until 1979. Today the Women of Rollins Club uses it for meetings, quilting, community sewing projects, and for the sewing of an annual quilt, which is raffled for scholarships and maintenance of the historic school house.
An annual fundraising garage sale/bake sale will be held on Saturday, July 27, as the Women of Rollins Club is now the sole financial supporter of this historic building.
For more information call 406-844-2062.
