Tunica civic club still vital in life of community
Can a Tunica civic club that’s been around 83 years still be relevant today?
Since purchasing its own building in 2005 and undertaking a large, much-needed renovation there, the Tunica Rotary Club has indeed been on the move.
From starting an annual golf tournament as a fundraiser, to recruiting new members, and to bringing a variety of interesting speakers to its Thursday lunch meetings, the club has seen a recent resurgence.
This year’s Fair offered a full day of fun at the Battle Arena on Saturday, June 9. Kids lined up for face painting and time on the bouncy slide as well as a look at the various equipment used by the road department.
