Rotary Club of Plainville

The Bristol Rotary Club will be holding a can and bottle drive on Saturday, May 4 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Harry C. Barnes Memorial Nature Center on Shrub Road in Bristol.

Proceeds from the drive will provide scholarships for two students in the Interact Club at Bristol Central High School.

These scholarships are available to Interact Club members and officers who are graduating seniors of Bristol Central in this current academic year. Each year’s scholarship recipients are determined by the officers, membership, and faculty advisors of the Interact Club, and subsequently reviewed and fulfilled by the Bristol Rotary Scholarship Fund Board of Directors.
