Pinellas County club news

The St. Petersburg College Foundation received a gift of $20,000 at the December luncheon meeting of the Palm Harbor Rotary Club, held at Carrabba's restaurant in Palm Harbor.

New club member Mary Lewis, 90, gave $10,000 to the SPC Foundation and the amount was matched by the Palm Harbor Rotary Club.

Palm Harbor Rotary is the first Rotary club to achieve an endowed lifetime scholarship fund with St. Petersburg College. The fund was created to award students who exhibit strong community leadership and who have a heart for volunteer service.

Lewis and her husband, Gene, became active members of Rotary in Sandusky, Ohio, during the 1950s where they learned about the club's goals of community and worldwide charity.
