Thank you, Donna, for your 23 years of faithful service.

Now that Donna Friswell and Les Becca are “happy homeowners” in Melbourne, Florida, Donna has submitted her letter of resignation from our club and will be joining the Cocoa Rotary Club as of July 1. She was a charter member, stepping up to assume presidency only six months into our club’s formation. She was an assistant governor, spent years on the district’s grant committee, headed work weekends at Camp Fairlee, and worked on many of our service projects over the years.  Anyone venturing to Cocoa or Orlando area is encouraged to get in touch with Donna and get a private tour of the area with our favorite “travel agent.”

Did we accomplish anything? You bet!

Our club goals and activities are recorded each year in Rotary Club Central, a site on rotary.org. This enables us to keep track of our progress in membership, giving to The Rotary Foundation, service activities, and communication with the public. So far this year we have met or exceeded all of our goals and accomplished 37 service activities. It was a banner year in spite of the pandemic.

What did we do? wrote cards to shut-ins, gave to Disaster USA, filled about 150 birthday boxes, supported our friends at the Courtyard, paid for meals for hospital workers, gave gift cards for needy neighbors, supported Newark PAL, held World’s Greatest Meal to raise money for polio, picked up trash for Adopt a Highway, packed food at the Food Bank, raised funds through flags For heroes, yard clean up with Lori’s Hands volunteers, supported the Food Bank, supported educational programs at Iron Hill, gave to Newark Area Welfare Fund, supported the Rotary Rose parade, gave to Troop 603, assisted in Salvation Army kettle drive, gave gift cards to Downes School families, gave dictionaries to third graders, held first entrepreneur training class through FACT committee, supported Easter Seals with camperships, completed the 22nd Report to the Community, collected non-perishables for the Food Bank, supported DFRC in program guide, books to students at Gateway Lab School, supported literacy program in Dominican Republic, donated clothes to McVey School nurse for emergency closet, filled Welcome Bags for Camp Fairlee counselors, supported financial education through Junior Achievement, donated to Shoes That Fit for clothes for needy school children, supported cancer research through Relay For Life, acknowledged a community service volunteer as well as public service and Spirit in Business, purchased a Shelter Box tent and kit, and supported our military overseas with phone call cards. We put in approximately 474 volunteer hours (if not more!) and gave from our own pockets more than $10,000 to The Rotary Foundation (exact amount still to be determined).

Do you have a Strategic Plan?

Under Joyce Henderson’s guidance, we have a strategic plan for moving forward into the next three years. It started two years ago, under Evelyn’s presidency with a lengthy survey administered by Clinton. Results were tabulated, a committee formed, and we now have a plan to strengthen our administrative, membership, service projects, and fundraising activities. The plan will be emailed to everyone for review at this week’s club assembly. Thank you to everyone involved.
