The Post Rotary Club held it's annual broom (and other household cleaning necessities) sale on Tuesday, April 10, at West Main Street and Broadway in front of the "Welcome to Post sign." The event was held to raise money for the club's academic scholarships awarded to Post High School graduates each year.
According to Sales Chairman Charles Hardin, who has been involved for more than 25 years, the Post Rotary Club received almost $400 from the total sales of $1400. He added that "it was up from last year's collections."
The Rotarians are the local group who sponsor the broom sale which also benefits the Caravan Sale for the Blind. That organization sells only merchandise that is produced by individuals who are blind. Caravan's motto is "helping the blind to help themselves."
On May 1, the local club will host about 12 PHS students at a Senior Banquet. The keynote speaker at the event will be 106th Judicial District Judge Carter T. Schildknecht. Soon after the festivities, Rotarians will vote to see which two students will receive the 2012 scholarships at the PISD graduation ceremony on June 1.
