SERVING THE COMMUNITY AND BEYOND
Ascentra donates $25,000 to Iowa Quad Cities Rotary to help establish a scholarship in late CEO Paul Lensmeyer’s name. He was a long time member of the service organization and was very involved in a number of Rotary service projects, including those focused on disadvantaged youth and disadvantaged families. Rotary’s primary fundraiser is Ribs for Kids and takes place on August 16th. Proceeds from that help children of military families whose parents are serving people overseas attend a kid’s camp. The group hopes this will be an ongoing scholarship as part of the mission to help the advancement of people in need and youth and for people committed to academic achievement.
