ROTARY CLUB OF DELAND’S 2017 ROTARY ACHIEVERS
 
The Rotary Club of DeLand honored the sixty-one winners of its 2017 Rotary Achiever Awards at the May 18th  luncheon at Wayne G. Sanborn Activity Center.  Rotary Achiever Project Chair Morgan Gilreath praised the winners for their significant accomplishments as well as their leadership potential.
Rotary Achiever Awards are given annually to West Volusia elementary school students in the fourth and fifth grades who have exhibited the greatest increase in academic achievement during the school year, based on standardized reading tests.   The main goal of the Rotary Achiever Program is to instill the concept of rewards received for effort expended.
 
 
Since 1997, the Rotary Club of DeLand has given out 987 Rotary Achiever Awards and invested over $127,000 in this program.
The Rotary Club of DeLand, through its Ellwood Titcomb Fund,  presented a check for $10,000 to the DeLand Naval Air Station Museum on April 22, 2017.   
 
 
This gift was awarded in memory of longtime Rotary member Ellwood A. Titcomb, who had bequeathed $10,000 to the Rotary Club of DeLand when he passed away.  Ellwood was the first President of the DeLand Naval Air Station Museum, a WWII Veteran, President of the Rotary Club of DeLand 1988-89, a Paul Harris Fellow, and a member of Rotary International Foundation’s Bequest Society.
 
Seeking a way to re-invest this money in the community, the Rotary Club of DeLand’s Board of Directors wanted to use the funds to promote community values, help preserve our community’s history, encourage education about our country and community, honor veterans, and ensure that Ellwood and his family would appreciate and approve of the selection.  After several years of research and deliberation, it was decided that the DeLand Naval Air Station Museum fit all the criteria perfectly.
 
 Participating in the presentation ceremony were Ellwood’s wife Sandy and son Kent,  Rotary Club of DeLand President Steve Burk, President Elect Eric Nompleggi, Treasurer Elyse Philips and Executive Secretary Ed Denston as well as several other Rotarians.  Gloria Denston reminisced about Ellwood, citing his dedication, enduring legacy and adherence to Rotary’s motto:  Service Above Self.

Rotary Club of DeLand Celebrates 90th Anniversary
 
 
The Rotary Club of DeLand was admitted to Rotary International December 28, 1926 with installation ceremonies taking place January 3, 1927. To celebrate our Club's 90th anniversary, a special tribute was held at our March 9th meeting. Several members made presentations highlighting Past Presidents. Al Wehrle gave a brief history of the founding of our Club by Stetson University's President Dr. Lincoln Hulley who served as our President 1927-28. Larry Drumb spoke about his grandfather, Edward Drumb (President 1948-49), Cindy Fox about her father G. Robert Fox (President 1974-75), and Mayor Bob Apgar about his father Harry Apgar (President 1965-66).
 
 
 
 
 
 
ROTARY RUMMAGE ROUNDUP YEEHAW!!
 
To raise money for an international Rotary project, the Rotary Club of DeLand held its first rummage sale.  The “Rotary Rummage Roundup Yeehaw!!” was held early in December.
 The Rotary Club of DeLand is collaborating on a Clean Water Project with Rotary Clubs in Canada, North Carolina and Roatan (an island off the coast of Honduras).  This multi-country effort will build a well on Roatan to provide a consistent source of fresh water for the remote fishing village of St. Elena.
 
 
 
 
 
GLAMOUR & GORE (TEST UNDER CONSTRUCTION)
Rotary Club of DeLand’s Biggest Annual Fundraising Event
 
For those that are new to the Club, we are pleased to introduce you to Glamour & Gore, our Club’s #1 fundraising event of the year!  This one event raises much of the money we use to benefit our communities and local charities.  Last year, our 3rd Annual Glamour & Gore raised over $56,000 of much needed funds, positively impacting the quality of life for our citizens in DeLand.
 
Luckily, Glamour and Gore is also a scary good time.  If you’ve never helped before, please get involved in some way.  The day of set-up is a group effort and it is important that one and all find a way to help with this major event.
 
Due to the exceptional needs of community organizations this year, your help is more important than ever!
Besides volunteering to help set up on the big day there are a variety of sponsorship opportunities and you are helping by attending and selling extra tickets to your friends.  Please make sure you participate in this awesome event in one or more ways.
