At last week’s Rotary Club meeting, Tennessee Soapworks owner Matthew Starner regaled the club with the intricacies of the soap making process. Starner mixed, poured and cut a (pre-made) block of soap during his presentation to the club, while giving a brief overview of the history of his business. Tennessee Soapworks is located on the square in Lafayette. In other business, MCHS graduate Jackson Sircy received a $1000 scholarship from the club.
The Rotary club is a service organization devoted to various projects supporting the community-at-large, including Makin’ Macon Fit, the Macon County 3rd Graders Dictionary Initiative, Boy Scouts, the Macon County High School Interact Club and the Junior High Interact Club, as well as scholarships.
