    The Haleyville Rotary Club thank you for purchasing one of the 650 BBQ dinners served up last Friday night before the Haleyville/Cordova football game. This is an annual fundraiser for all three of the Haleyville schools. The money will be used by the schools for the formerly called Renaissance program. This is a motivational program which is outside the normal school curriculum used to encourage students to attend school (because if they are not there they can’t learn) and improve academically.

    The next project for the Haleyville Rotary Club will be Breakfast with Santa the first Saturday in December. The pancake breakfast is a fundraiser for the Rotary Christmas Toys for Kids Program. The Haleyville Rotary Club meets each Thursday at noon in the conference room at the Lakeshore Hospital.
