The Sixth Annual Rotary's Reindeer 8K Romp, sponsored by the Taylorsville Rotary Club. The race proceeds provide financial support for the many community service projects of Taylorsville Rotary. During the holiday season, when the race takes place, we will be gearing up for the Bill Shell Memorial Shopping Spree for under privileged children in the schools of Alexander County. Club members, volunteers and Navy ROTC members partner to take elementary children Christmas shopping for "needs and wants", while we also provide gift cards for kids in need at both middle schools and the high school. Other projects include Food Backpacks during the school year, Groceries for Alexander People delivering quarterly to shut-ins, Scholarships, and more.
