Rotary Club President Henna Budhrani recently presented a check for US $6,000 to Tamara Leonard of the Education for Us All Foundation. Budhrani said, “We are proud to continue our sponsorship of this wonderful initiative to help students, who might not have the opportunity to continue their tertiary education. Our students are our future, and we as Rotarians must do everything we can to strengthen the future of our community.”
