Some of the projects the Custer Rotary Club had this last year.


Custer Food Pantry/Community Exchange

Time  to assist in the handling of food, and in the move to the new facilities. In addition, funds were donated toward the facility also. The Community Exchange was created by local volunteers to provide a place for people to donate household furnishings and clothes. It is then distributed to people in need at no cost.

Custer Boy Scouts

We assisted an Eagle Scout candidate, with a project to construct a picnic shelter at Gates Park.  In addition an annual contribution to the local troop is made.
