RCS Beta Club gives back

By Hannah Lunsford and Maggie Harper

On Friday, March 20, the Roxboro Community School (RCS) Beta Club sponsored Freedom Friday for its monthly service project.

From 7 to 8 a.m., Tricia’s Espresso gave a portion of the proceeds made within the hour to Beta Club, which then donated it to Disabled American Veterans here in Person County.

“After talking to owner Will Davis, we are hopeful that this will be the first annual Freedom Friday so that we can raise money for veterans and other military needs,” Beta Club advisor Nancy Clayton said.

Beta Club President Adam Ramsey said, “We wanted to draw attention to the fact that many men and women have served our country with courage – we wanted to give back in whatever small way we could. Tricia’s seemed like a good opportunity.”

He continued, “We’re grateful for the opportunity to work with Tricia’s and Will, who is allowing Beta Club members to make contributions through small actions.”

“Even though it wasn’t a huge project, it shows that if you have an idea, you can follow through with it,” said Ramsey. “I hope this instills in the minds of Beta Club members that nothing is impossible.”

“Beta Club is open to working with any other business that would be willing to help out such great causes,” concluded Ramsey. “One of the great things about Roxboro is that there are so many businesses that are willing to help clubs and we’re so grateful for that.”
