TRUSSVILLE — Better Basics and Trussville Daybreak Rotary Club recently partnered to dedicate a Book Nook at Restoration Academy (RA) in Fairfield.
Trussville Daybreak Rotary Club constructed the cedar Book Nook and donated to Better Basics, a local nonprofit advancing children’s literacy in the Central Alabama area. A signature project of Better Basics, Book Nooks, makes books accessible to children in various economically-challenged communities around the metro-Birmingham area.
The Rotary International is a global network of 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders whose motto is ‘Service above Self.’ This club lives out this motto by serving the community in many ways. Proceeds from fundraising events, including the golf tournament coordination, go toward the club’s many projects.
Those projects include leadership opportunities for local high school students, Dr. Seuss books for local elementary students, ribbons at City Hall in recognition of Veterans’ Day, lunch for campers and staff at Smile-a-Mile, trees planted at Civitan Park, and more. The Club has recently funded the new clock in downtown Trussville, benches at the walking track at Cahaba Elementary, and playground equipment at The Mall in historic Trussville. #rotary6860 #ServiceAboveSelf
