Warsaw Rotary presents RCC and RAM of Virginia $2,500 to support upcoming free medical event

Hutt Williams and Carrie Lewis

Hutt Williams, RCC employee and Warsaw Rotary Club member, presents a check to Carrie Lewis, who is coordinating the upcoming free medical event with RAM of Virginia. Lewis is a member of the nursing faculty at RCC.

On November 4 and 5, Rappahannock Community College will be hosting RAM of Virginia for a free medical event, at Richmond County Elementary School.

Medical, dental, and vision care will be available on a “first-come, first served” basis, for people who often cannot afford to pay for these services. Care will be provided regardless of their insurance, financial, or residency qualifications.

On Wednesday, October 18, the Warsaw Rotary Club presented Carrie Lewis with a check for $2,500 to support this event. Lewis, an RCC nursing faculty member, is working with the RAM of Virginia organization to put on the event.

Hutt Williams, a member of the Warsaw Rotary and an employee of RCC as well, presented Lewis with the check, which was a result of a grant application from the Warsaw Rotary to the Rotary International organization.

The funds will help cover expenses related to the event like food for both the volunteers and patients, as well as other facilities-related fees.
