Karen Glenn, Madisonville Rotary Club president said, “The Rotary Club of Madisonville is proud to support the youth of Hopkins County.

We look forward to a successful 2013 auction and ask for everyone to come out and support such a worthwhile cause.”
 
The club’s goal is to raise $50,000 with the 2013 Auction which will run from April 29th to May 3rd.
