The Kirksville-Thousand Hills Rotary Club dedicates one meeting each month to completing a service project. These projects are designed to benefit individuals and organizations in the local community. The project for July was assembling dishwashing kits for distribution to patrons of the Pantry for Adair County. The kits included dish soap, a dish towel, sponges, and hand-knitted dishcloths.
