  • High School Scholarships were previously awarded to one senior at Franklin County High School and one senior at Staunton River High School.
  • Two high school students were sponsored to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) conference at Virginia Tech.
  • Emergency 911 dock signs were made and installed on SML docks.     
  • Parking support was provided to the  Chamber of Commerce Business Expo.
