Since June of 2021, our club began participating quarterly in the Adopt-a-Road program. Our club sponsors Tuskawilla Road between Red Bug Road and Dyke Road. We are helping by keeping our roadway free of litter and debris. Along with this, we are educating the public through storm drain markers which reminds citizens that rain run off can wash soil, yard waste and other pollutants into our waterways.
Here is one of our recipients excited about planting his Loquat tree. We also provided them with Florida friendly landscaping guidelines and planting information.
It’s important to us to be as clear about what we do as the service we provide to communities in need. Here are a couple of our recent initiatives. Find out how you can get involved.
Our club created positive note cards for students to take home over the weekend for the "Blessings in a Backpack" program
Jim Boswell: "My memorable Rotary Moment was when the club conducted outdoor a cultural performance called the 'Rotary International Folk Festival'. We managed a 'Beer Garden' around a large truck provided by the beer distributor. Unfortunately midway through the performance a torrential storm struck with high winds, lightning, and a flood of rain. Despite the ill weather, club members like me took our stand against the storm at the beer wagon. Sure, the storm demolished our tents but we kept the beer cold and it was delicious."
Mike Schaffer: Rotary is a dedicated part of my life. I set aside time for me to be involved in activities and events that I enjoy. Most importantly, I see direct results to what I and my club participates. It's a great feeling to be part of something so large and at the same time a close part of my community.
