The Longwood Rotary Club Foundation (LRCF) has been helping our local community for over 20 years. Last  year the LRCF awarded over $86,000 to worthy projects and initiatives. This year, the first three grants were  presented to Stephanie D’Amico of the Kennett Senior Center, Robert Curran of the Fuller Disaster Relief  Program, and Patty Hillkirk of Camp Dreamcatcher by the LRCF’s Treasurer, Dave McKeon.
