Since March 2020, everyone has experienced the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Mechanicsville Rotary Club is not an exception and has been impacted the ways we provide service to improve the quality of life for people in our community.  A cornerstone our club is to have our annual casino night and auction which has benefitted Hanover Safe Place to promote freedom from sexual and domestic violence within the community.  The club conducted it’s twenty first (21st) annual event in early March 2020 but unfortunately had to cancel the event for 2021. This was a disappointment since the donation to Hanover Safe Place provides tremendous benefit to the community.

The objective of rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service. The Mechanicsville Rotary Club realized the impact of cancelling the 2021 casino night and auction and determined we would conduct a fund raising event to benefit Hanover Safe Place. With the generosity of community sponsors and club members, The Mechanicsville Rotary Club provided Hanover Safe Place a donation of $40,000.00 to support their mission and vision in June 2021. This substantial donation allows Hanover Safe Place to apply for a grant that is 4 times larger than our donation.   

The club is extremely pleased with the overwhelming generosity of the companies and club members that supported the 2021 fund raising initiative. Without your support, we would not have been able to continue supporting the mission and vision of Hanover Safe Place.  

We are already working on a fund raising event for 2022, please follow us on our Facebook and here to learn more about our upcoming event.
