The Hopkinsville Rotary Club announced its 70th annual auction theme during their weekly meeting Tuesday afternoon.
The club, which will celebrate 100 years of community service in 2020, hosts a week-long auction during April.
Auction Chairman Scott Cowan presented the theme ‘A Tradition of Service Above Self’ that reassures their motto to helping others.
Cowan adds after he joined rotary in 2009, the importance of the bell and gavel became more notable.
He notes ‘Service Above Self’ has been evident in every rotary auction.
The auction will take place April 20-25, 2020, with the goal of raising $300,000. Cowan says the Hour Club will remain the same this year at $174.
Funds raised during the auction support children furthering their education, including the Hopkinsville Community College Rotary Scholars program which pays the full tuition for a two-year degree for those who qualify.
