Special Education Fishing Rodeo
Annually participants of the fishing rodeo include students, faculty and family members. Rotarians grill and serve hamburgers and hotdogs with all of the trimmings, along with, a full day of cane pole fishing. Thank you to Mr. & Mrs. Paternostro for allowing the Rotary Club to host this function on your beautiful property.  

Christmas Food Basket Drive
Annually Picayune Rotarians prepare and distribute over one hundred food baskets.  Each Rotary member looks forward to this event all year as they are motivated by the gracious contributions of food and the appreciation expressed by the recipients. Any excess food not distributed is donated to a local charity organization which distributes food as needed during the rest of the year.
