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.

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.

  • Creating & distributing a Community Arts Calendar
  • Installing water filtration systems in Dominican Republic
  • Annual Carlos Giraldo Student Essay Contest
  • Building ramps with the Center for Independent Living

Gary Teramae: "“Rotary has been a part of my life for about 35 years, with 18 of those years with the Casselberry Club.  Rotary is an opportunity for me to give back to the community in which I live and work.  There have been many wonderful projects that we have done such as Meals on Wheels, Paint Your Heart Out, Youth Essay and Art Contests with the local schools, helping to feed and shelter the homeless and assist the elderly in our community.  The many wonderful fundraisers that have allowed us to give back like the International Folk Festival where we raised funds and brought international culture in the form of music and art to Casselberry, the Art Calendar project that allows us to display local artists talents and distribute the calendars to local merchants and residents.”  I have developed many wonderful relationships that I never would have experienced if not for Rotary.  I would encourage anyone that feels that they are appreciative for what they have and wants to give back to visit us and be a part of something special”.

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"




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."
