Meet Jamey Peacock

Minutarian update, Week 35
Rotarians of 6970,

February 23rd, is an anniversary. On that day, 108 years ago, Paul Harris, Gustavus Loehr, Silvester Schiele and Hiram E. Shorey gathered in Loehr’s office for what became known as the first Rotary meeting. Celebrate Rotary!

Our clubs have been doing great with their polio commitments. The US Government has joined the fight again this year providing $205 million to the Centers for Disease Control, in January.

Last week I mentioned it was the fundraising time of year in Rotary. Gingie and I were blessed to be invited, and witness what I suspect will total well over $100 thousand in funds for great things in our communities. The events included: Daytona Beach West Stock Car Hall of Fame, Palatka Sunrise Wild Game Feast, Jacksonville Riverside first ever Riverside Craft Beer Festival, and an all Marion County Club effort with their Ocala Discovery Fest. WOW!

Just a reminder, keep those awards applications coming in!
Have a Great Week, and thanks for all you do!
