Rotary Helps Restock Library

Rushville, IL – The Rushville Rotary Club will help restock the library of an elementary school that was destroyed by Hurricane Rita. Club Vice President Walt Stephenson says half of the 14 schools in Vermillion Parish west of New Orleans were destroyed. Stephenson says the state will replace buildings and textbooks, but library collections are far down on the priority list of goods to be purchased. He says the club contacted Rotarians in the region who put him in touch with the Seventh Ward school in Abbeville.
