Club News

I will always remember September 2017 was an amazing month of community service.  That feeling was reinforced on Monday 10/30 when I got a call from Dr. James Spinnati to tell me that I earned the “Sunshine Award” for outstanding community service and efforts with Portsmouth Rotary.  The award presentation will be at the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts on Monday 11/27 at intermission during a large concert (in front of 900 people). The recognition I have been given this year as President of our club has made me feel great about all that we have done, but more importantly all of the service we have given our community over the years.  Portsmouth Rotary is a lot like a tree, always growing and adding new branches of service each year.  The roots of that tree are represented by our eldest members that have given so much of their lives over the last 30-50 years for the service of our club.  The leaves of that tree are represented by the newest members that are eager to learn about our club and help with service.  The trunk is represented by our members of all ages that connect the new members to the elder members.  Members like Tess Midkiff and Dave Stone, have helped forge that connection between the past and the future of our club. Why are we talking about Trees?

 
Where's Club President Reece Michael Brown?  He's presenting a check from our Club to support Portsmouth Area Arts Council and Children's Theatre at one of their rehearsals for their upcoming production of James and the Giant Peach (Hint- He's wearing the royal blue "Rotarians at Work" tshirt.)
