For most people, cutting the grass and planting shrubbery on a warm, muggy, summer day is not something they look forward to. But members from the Georgetown Lunch Rotary Club jumped at the opportunity to engage in a service project helping Habitat For Humanity finish up a home in the Georgetown community. The Georgetown Rotarians arrived early Saturday morning and tackled an overgrown lawn, while planting shrubbery around the exterior of the home. Georgetown Lunch Rotary President Kim Kaminski said “it was a lot of work on a hot day. But we had fun doing it, and it greatly improved the appearance of the home. It served as a good example of the Rotary motto ‘Service Above Self.’”
Habitat for Humanity Georgetown County is an ecumenical, Christian-based organization that gives low-income working families a chance by building and providing simple, decent homes in decent communities. A low-income family is scheduled to occupy the Georgetown house in the near future.
