PRESTONSBURG—The Floyd County chapter of Rotary International has found a new home: The new headquarters of the Floyd County Emergency and Rescue Squad.
In their first meeting at the new location on Thursday, Squad Captain Tim Cooley gave the club members a tour of the new $1.2 million facility, before the FCERS crew served lunch.
Club members said they appreciated Reno’s Roadhouse for serving as their host in the past, and hope to form a strong relationship with the Rescue Squad to promote membership and publicity for both causes. Capt. Cooley recalls the incident when Southern Water had lost service to customers, and the Rotary Club and Food City teamed up to provide free drinking water for his squad to bring to those in need.
Floyd County’s Rotary Club is always looking for new members and guest speakers. They will meet on Thursday, April 24, at 1 p.m. at the Highlands Center for Autism, and from then on, the Rescue Squad facility on Cliff Road will be their regular meeting place every Thursday at noon.
Anyone interested in joining the Rotary Club, contributing to the work they do in the community, or interested in being a speaker at an upcoming meeting is encouraged to contact current president Paula Howard at (606) 793-3944 or upcoming president Earlene Nelson at (606) 886-7203.
