Rotary Club makes donation
The Western Henrico Rotary Club recently was awarded a district simplified grant to be used for the Peter Paul Development group, an afterschool program that educates 55 children in Richmond's East End, drawing from four of the city's largest public housing projects. The grant provides a reading and comprehension development curriculum used by the program. Recently, Jim Bynum (Rotary district governor), Bill Liepis (district grants) and Michael Binns (Rotary Foundation chair) visited the school and helped put WHRC stickers on workbooks provided by the grants.
