Rinker's project benefits Bethesda Free Clinic
Caroline Rinker, a sophomore at St. Patrick Catholic High School, completed a service project that benefitted the Bethesda Free Clinic.
With the help from St. Alphonsus CYO leaders Suzanne and Scott Hawkins and friends, Grace Hudson and Claire and Hannah Gautier, Rinker held a spaghetti supper at the KC Hall at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church. She and her mother cooked the spaghetti and more than 60 supper were served, raising $300 for the clinic.
She is the daughter of Jeannie and Ron Rinker of Ocean Springs.
