The Veterans Guest House recently opened a second complete facility with six additional bedrooms, a kitchen, living room and laundry.
“The Rotary Club of Reno Centennial Sunset has had an ongoing relationship with the Veterans Guest House and this contribution continues that tradition,” said club President Rick Lierman.
The club chartered in October 2004 and has taken on projects to benefit the Mariposa Academy, Bailey Charter School, The Ridge House and the Food Bank of Northern Nevada. Club members also volunteer as facilitators in the Choices program at Damonte Ranch High School. International projects have been taken on by the club in Mexico and Chile.
The Rotary Club of Reno Centennial Sunset meets at 6 p.m. Tuesdays at the Tamarack Junction on South Virginia in Reno. For more information, visit www.rcsrotary.org.
