When the Center for Independent Living put out a call for help building a ramp, 11 Rotarians were more than happy to lend a hand. The group spent a beautiful Saturday building building a ramp to give a resident easy access to their home. Thanks so much to David, Curley, Gregory, Sarah, George, Paul, Dylan, John, Jon, David, & Frank for their service!
The Rotary Club of College Park was honored to receive the Presidential Citation Award (for meeting several criteria established by the district governor including: 10 percent gain in membership, achieving the goals that the club set for the year, strong retention rate, education programs, completing a polio eradication fundraising effort, and maintaining an active web and social media presence), the District Media Award, and the highest membership award for its category. Way to go, Rotarians!
This week, Orlando Mayor, Buddy Dyer, was the guest speaker at the morning meeting. Mayor Dyer joined club members for breakfast, then provided a State of the City Report and insight in to new city incentives.
Members of the College Park Rotary and Edgewater High School Interact Club braved the chilly temps on Saturday, 2/21, to spend the morning cleaning up Edgewater Drive. Several volunteers showed up to pick up trash along the busy roadway and share a smile or two with drivers. “We got a lot done and had a great time doing it.”, said Gregory Jackson, President Elect. The event was well attended and coordinated by Rotarian Robert Dodrill.
The Rotary Club of College park is asking for community support to pack 20,000 meals for distribution to Orange County School children and their families, through the Love Pantry Project, a project of the Christian Service Center. Anyone can sign up to help.
Volunteers will be hand-packaging 20,000 healthy meals that will be distributed to Orange County School children and their families through the Love Pantry Project, a project of the Christian Service Center. There will be great music, good fun and the chance to make a tangible difference in the life of a hungry child.
Because these meals will be staying locally, they are part of our US Hunger program. Click here to learn more about US Hunger.

UPDATE: Rotary Club of College Park donated $3,000 to sponsor the Luminaria Tent at the 2013 Relay For Life of College Park, and helped raise an additional $1,000 in Luminaria donations.
The Rotary Club of College Park is proud to support the 2013 Relay For Life College Park as a sponsor and Luminaria chair. Relay For Life College Park takes place on April 27-28, 2013 at Edgewater High School Football Stadium.
The Luminaria ceremony is the most inspiring and powerful moment of the event; an opportunity to share and reflect as we line the track with glowing Luminaria bags after sundown. Each bright Luminaria represents a special relationship, a person who has touched our lives. Please don’t forget their struggle with cancer- remember them with a Luminaria – either in honor of how they survived or in memory of how they lived.
