International Dinner set for Saturday at Center

Somerset — The Rotary Club of Somerset-Pulaski County is hosting the 14th annual International Dinner Saturday, March 1, 6 p.m., at The Center for Rural Development.

A limited number of tickets will be available at the door for $60 each. To reserve tickets in advance, please call Christie Adams at 416-0595.

The International Dinner began as an international project to share and cultivate the cultural diversity Somerset offers. What began as a potluck supper with approximately six countries represented is now an evening of cuisine and culture that showcases 30 countries and locations around the world.

Without the efforts of local residents, this event would not be possible.

The Rotary Club would like to thank all of the families who cook the food and share their cultures with others over the course of the evening.

Some of the 30 countries represented will be Afghanistan, Argentina, China, Cuba, Egypt, Finland, France, India, Iran, Ireland, Philippines, Russia, Scotland, and Thailand. This will truly have something for everyone!

Funds raised in past years have supported Rotary’s efforts to eradicate polio, disaster relief in the Philippines through Shelterbox, construction of wells to provide fresh water and literacy projects.

Closer to home, funds have supported local projects such as Habitat for Humanity, Imagination Library, the Young Entrepreneur Program sponsored by the Chamber, and ramp building.

Rotary is an international service organization of 1.1 million professionals dedicated to working to serve their communities and the world. The Rotary Club of Somerset-Pulaski County meets every Thursday morning at 7 a.m. at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, Conference Room A. Please join us for a meeting to learn more about Rotary and the Somerset-Pulaski club. And, please “like” our Facebook page, Somerset-Pulaski Morning Rotary Club or visit the webpage,
