On April 26, Long Meadows Rotary presented a "symbolic check" to Brook Lane Health Services personnel for $24,200.

The proceeds are to be used as start-up funds for the first autism clinic in Washington County.

The main function of the clinic will be to diagnose autism in the early stages to enable more effective treatment of the disorder.

Long Meadows Rotary has pledged $12,100 from club funds and a grant for matching funds has been approved from District 7350.

The grant money will be disbursed to Long Meadows Rotary Club at the annual District Foundation Dinner Oct. 16 at the Ramada Inn in State College, Pa.
