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!!
