2020’s International initiative will be to conduct a fundraiser for the purchase of 200 Solar Powered Portable Device Chargers and other needed supplies for people in need on the storm and earthquake-ravaged island of Puerto Rico. Smoketown Rotarian Kim Grizzle (Shillelaghs Travel) will be spearheading a future bus excursion to Luray Caverns as a fundraiser to pay for the chargers and the cost of shipping and delivery.
During the Covid Pandemic, the club altered service project activities to make sure we were outside, with plenty of social distancing. On August 22nd, several members hiked to Weverton Cliffs to support the Puerto Rico Relief effort. 
Last year, we made a hike to Maryland Heights, got folks to sponsor us on an online pay page and donated the money to KIVA, an international small business support fund.
