Columbia Rotary raises over $35,000 for The Salvation Army of the Midlands

imagesThe 2014 Christmas Kettle Campaign was a great success for Columbia Rotary and The Salvation Army.  Major Roger Coulson is proud to report that Columbia Rotary raised $35,962 during the 2014 holiday season.  This total includes the kettles worked by Columbia Rotarians at Green’s, Piggly Wiggly and Bi-Lo in addition to fundraising efforts led by Past President JT within his automotive business and a personal donation from JT and his wife, Mary.  Special thanks to all the Team Captains and the Bell Ringers who made this holiday season a great success.  The Salvation Army raised a total of $351,887 throughout the Midlands!!

Bells are Ringin’

Thanks to everyone who sent in their pictures of family, friends and colleagues ringing the bell for Columbia Rotary and the 2014 Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign.  Look for a recap of the program after the first of the year.  A million thanks to everyone who served our community “Doing The Most Good”!!

Feel free to send your bell ringing photos to kpowers@free-times.com so they can be posted to this gallery!
