The Malakoff Rotary Club is preparing to “walk the talk” by committing to serve at the Faith in Action food pantry Tuesday March 12.

Rotarians discussed their roles serving with the Malakoff-based food and clothes ministry during their regular meeting March 5.

“We are going to be working in the back, boxing food,” Julie Armstrong, Malakoff Rotary president said.

The relationship between the ministry and Malakoff Rotary is going so well, Faith in Action Director Teri Caswel is in the preliminary stages of becoming a member. Rotarians unanimously accepted her application. Now she just needs to come to the next meeting and be officially inducted.

Rotarians will be splitting duties among morning and afternoon shifts at Faith in Action. They will not have a meeting March 12.

Armstrong said they may not have a Rotary shirt for new member Scotty Thomas while they serve at the ministry next week.

“What a great problem!” Armstrong said. “More members than shirts is a good problem to have.”

The Malakoff Rotary club’s next business meeting will be at noon March 19 at the Flagg House.
