    The Shepherdstown Rotary Club has awarded a $250 "Rotary Reads" grant to the Shepherdstown Elementary School.
    The funds will be used to help support the school's "Rise and Shine" Summer Camp. The camp, which has served the community for more than two decades, enrolls 30-40 elementary-school-age children each summer. Reading is an important part of the Camp's curriculum.
    The Rotary Club presented the grant at its March 24 weekly breakfast meeting at the Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown
    Present to receive it were Shepherdstown Elementary School Principal Suzanne Offutt and teachers Michelle Webb and Nancy Cline.

    The Shepherdstown Rotary Club's "Rotary Reads" grant program is one of several Club activities aimed at enhancing literacy among local children. It consists of cash grants, awarded each year during March, to worthy institutions for projects or programs that promote reading.
    Enhancing literacy has been a major priority of Rotarians since their organization's founding in 1905, and the month of March is recognized as "Literacy Month" on the Rotary calendar.
