All year around, the Murray Rotary club is busy designing and implementing various projects that benefit the Murray Community. They take various forms that involve members in various capacities. Members have gone to schools to distribute dictionaries, they have participated in fun activities - Bass fishing, Golf, Polar plunges etc - to raise funds for the Rotary Foundation for families and children as well as numerous not-for-profit groups involved in the community. Members have also joined together to help victims of natural disasters all across the US and even small countries nearby.
