At Tuesday's lunch meeting, the Putnam Rotary Club received a certificate of recognition from the Putnam PRIDE Organization for our contribution to PRIDE.  PRIDE Chairman, Romeo Blackmar made the presentation.  Two Rotarians, Jeff Rawson and Stephen Adams, received individual certificates of recognition for their individual support of PRIDE.

PRIDE is the Partnership to Reduce the Influence of Drugs for Everyone.  Their goal is "to unite the citizens of Putnam in a partnership to create and foster a safe, drug free environment for the entire community".  The group has run awareness campaigns, helped organize proper prescription drug disposal programs and targeted the sales of drug paraphernalia at local convenience stores.
