Rotarians help with B&G summer meals program

Local Rotarians recently helped boost the Boys & Girls Club’s “Grab ‘n’ Go” program to help feed youths in Sequim and Port Angeles.

Long-time Rotarians Lang and Mary Hadley approached their Rotary Noon Club of Sequim club with an offer to match donations from members and the club, and recently presented a check to Mary Budke, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club, with $4,800 to help fund the program.

The Club’s Harry Hughes Memorial Fund contributed funds, as the Rotary Noon Club of Sequim does each year for youth programs.

“Grab ‘n’ Go” provides free summer meals to children 18 years old and younger, with meals distributed at various convenient locations in Sequim and Port Angeles. The program was kicked into high gear March 15, about three months early, when local schools closed due to the 2019 novel coronavirus outbreak.

It now provides more than 300 meals each day.

Club officials said they are thankful for the generosity of the Hadleys, club members, honorary members and Barbara Hughes, widow of Harry Hughes, for donating to this meal program.
