The Clayton Mid Day Rotary recently threw a shindig and hosted a cornhole toss for Clayton residents. The club also raised almost $3,000 for the U. S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots toy drive, according to club president Dave Brown.

Brown said the shindig featured the Hackensaw Boys and Old Habits for a “dance-around, kick-your-heels-up, sing-along, laugh-with-your-friends mini-music festival.” Brown said more than 40 teams came to the Flip Side Parking Lot for the Corn Hole Toss.

Club members plans to use the money to buy lots of toys when they go on their “shopping spree,” according Brown.

Brown notes that his club got lots of support from the community especially one local company, Carolina Comfort Air. The company was the title sponsors for the shindig and very generous, according to Brown.

“Without their help it would have not succeeded,” he said. After the event club members presented Carolina Comfort Air with a plaque as a token of the club’s gratitude.

The U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program collects and gives toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community.
