Minutarian Week 24: December 13, 2021

Quad-4 December 2021 Tornado  Adversely Affecting The Family of Rotary Western & Central Kentucky Rotary District 6710

D6970 York Foundation (501c-3) / December 2021

Kentucky Tornado Disaster Relief & Recovery
In the darkness on Saturday the 11th December 2021, a “monster” group of tornadoes travelled well over 200 miles across Western and Central Kentucky, adversely impacting several counties whereby the infrastructure & homes of the Family of Rotary were significantly destroyed or disrupted.

Our district is in electronic contact with Rotarian leadership in parts of the Kentucky District 6710 and have been advised that the needs assessments will be completed in the near future.

Needs So Far
Due to the level of massive devastation and the geographical distance, if some of our D6970 Rotarians have unique construction or disaster-relief equipment that could be readily sent, such equipment could possibly be staged at either of: (a) Mayfield-Graves County Fairgrounds at 1004 KY Route 121 Mayfield, KY 42066; or, at (b) ACE Compressor, 245 Kentex Drive, Mayfield KY 42066.

Consumable supplies can be readily sourced through the Kentucky local supply chains, so don’t send.

At this early stage, our D6970 Emergency & Disaster Relief Committee has determined that our Family of Rotary throughout Western & Central Kentucky will be performing both their short & long-term recovery assessments during the very near future. To assist them financially, our District has set up a donation program;
