LAYTON–The Layton Rotary Club is commemorating 60 years of service to the community this month. At the annual fundraising auction set for April 19 at 6:30 p.m., the Layton Rotary Club will be recognizing past members, many of which have provided excellent service to our community.
One of the founding members, Haven J, Barlow, has been active in the Layton Rotary Club since the inception of club (which was 60 years ago), and he is still an active member to this day. Members of the Layton Rotary Club also live in various communities throughout Davis County including Kaysville, Ogden, West Point, Clearfield and Syracuse.
More than two million people are members of Rotary International. Many of these members have joined together world-wide (along with other organizations such as the Gates Foundation and the World Health Organization) to eradicate polio. Presently, there are only three countries in the entire world that reported cases of polio this past year.
The Layton Rotary Club also raises money to service the community by holding an auction each year. Some of these service projects sponsored by the Layton Rotary Club include: providing scholarships to high school seniors and furnishing coats and other clothing to underprivileged families. The Layton Rotary club also has the opportunity to participate with the Winter Foundation and the Ghost Foundation. In addition, there is a wonderful association with the Design Build Bluff Project of the University of Utah Architecture Department.
Thurday’s auction is at the Weber State Davis Campus Ballroom. Anyone interested in joining the Layton Rotary Club is encouraged to attend. More information can be obtained by calling 801.593.2374
