The Fairfield Rotary Club announced the winners of their 2016 grants application process. 22 local organizations were awarded grants from all of the club’s fund-raising efforts of the past year. A full-house gathering at the Gaelic American Club, 74 Beach Road, Fairfield, was on hand for the presentations made at the club’s weekly meeting.
The club awarded over $22,000 dollars in grants to a group of individuals and organizations, based on grant applications submitted earlier this Fall. Every year the Fairfield Rotary is pleased to utilize their hard-earned funds to support worthwhile initiatives, both here in our local community – and around the world.
The Awards luncheon is held once a year, on the Monday after Thanksgiving. Deadline for applications each year is Sept 30th.
