July 17, 2021 - PTC Rotary joined with our RCC and helped install insulation at the new housing facility of Two Sparrows Village at Christian City.

We can’t wait to see the #RotaryKitchen that is being built with a grant from The Rotary Foundation / District 6900 as well for the facility!  Visit TwoSparrowsVillage.org to learn more about this project!
