Despite the downpour today, the Columbia Rotary Club had a good turnout at the annual Bean Lunch today at the Columbia United Methodist Church, 202 Burkesville ST, Columbia, KY. George Kolbenschlag said that he believed that, even with a slightly smaller crowd, profits would be about the same as last year.

The Rotary will split the proceeds - several hundred dollars - between local service projects and the Rotary's PolioPlus effort to eradicate that disease. The Columbia Woman's Club sold desserts, with the proceeds from their efforts going to the Green River Animal Shelter.
