Rotary is an international organization that also supports local organizations. Rides Board Chair David Smith, in accepting the grant added that, \u201cRotary helped get us off the ground six years ago and has been a strong and steady supporter ever since. Thank you very much for helping us provide rides to seniors who no longer drive.\u201d Rides for Ridgefield handled almost 1,000 call and 1,300 trips in 2018. Its volunteers have driven residents over 12,800 miles to medical appointments, religious services, Founders Hall, entertainment, social and other engagements.
