Judy Boryk: "I really loved hosting an exchange student through the Rotary Group Study Exchange. That student became a part of my family."
Walt Lee: "I was so impressed by the inaugural campaign for Polio eradication. Our club held a community style rummage sale consisting of used clothing & furniture. In just a single day we raised $35,000, and all of it went to Rotary's Polio Relief campaign."
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."
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.

Casselberry Latin Jazz Fest
We’re fortunate enough to just turn on a faucet to have access to life’s most essential ingredient: clean water. For many people, though, getting access to something so basic is incredibly difficult.
We reach out to communities, both locally and abroad, to develop sustainable solutions. Learn about the global impact that this club and Rotary International can make.
Joe Pfaff: "When Hurricane Charley struck central Florida, the City of Casselberry asked our Rotary club to help. Club members helped to distribute ice from a huge tractor trailer parked in the Howell Branch shopping center parking lot. Sure it was a lot of work, but very satisfying to help those in shock after the storm."
Lynne Breckon: "I loved digging in to help rekindle the publication of the Community Arts Calendar. This year, we were able to make $2700 which will go toward our service projects. I have fun with all the activities that I've been involved and look forward to many more."
Sharon Hunt: "When my artwork was selected in 2014 calendar, this was the first time that I received acknowledgment for my art, which felt very satisfying. I also had a lot of fun making meals at the Feeding Children Everywhere organization, and handing out the Dictionaries with Judy to school children at Lake Forest Prep ."
