Another one time goal is to help the YMCA by providing starter blocks for the swimming pool. The cost will be $13,000.

Karen Glenn, Madisonville Rotary Club president said, “The Rotary Club of Madisonville is proud to support the youth of Hopkins County. This announcement of rotary contributions is an example of the commitment of its members to make a difference in our community. 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.
