GRANT —







The Rotary Club of Whitesburg has received a grant through Rotary International to start a Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Whitesburg. The library is open to children ages 0-5 with a mailing and 911 address of 41858. Each child will receive a free book every month from the Dollywood Foundation until they are 5 years old.

Children will be able to register for the program in January. Rotary District Governor John B.
