Rotary Club of Blacksburg
Continuing an American tradition that dates back more than 100 years, the Rotary Club of Blacksburg supports its local community through charitable giving and special events. The group's annual chocolate festival gathers chocolatiers from across the region for tasting and contributes to local non-profits such as Be the Match, the Women’s Resource Center, and Hale YMCA Community Gardens. When they’re not planning events, the club’s 100 members meet weekly to plan new ways to support their neighbors.
