Come out for potato drop

By Staff | Apr 23, 2010

This Saturday, April 24, the Rotary Club of Shepherdstown and the Shepherd University Rotaract Club are sponsoring a Society of St. Andrew Potato Drop in front of Knutti Hall to provide food for the area’s hungry families. The Society is donating a tractor-trailer load of 40,000 pounds of potatoes.

The load will be dumped onto North King Street in front of Knutti Hall. North King Street will be closed to traffic for this event. This effort will require approximately 100 volunteers from the community to swarm over the piles of spuds, bagging them into 10-lb. mesh bags, and loading them into vehicles. Please be on campus at 7 a.m. to volunteer. The event may last until noon. Park at the lot near White Hall. Breakfast will be served!
