Spring 2017

The Scottsville Rotary Club lives by the motto “Service Above Self.”  We are a group of individuals that are community minded locally, nationally and internationally.  We keep busy during the year with projects and fundraisers to benefit our community as defined above:
  • Providing meals at the summer Farmers’ Market
  • Supporting Camp Haccamo, the Rotary camp for disabled children and adults, financially, volunteering, and attending their fundraising events
  • Providing dictionaries to 3rd grade students at TJ Connor and School #34 in the city
  • Providing financial support for the TJ Connor Reads initiative
  • Holiday caroling at Monroe Community Hospital.  We ask the WCHS Interact Club and Choirs to join us
  • Joined the Greater Wheatland Area Chamber of Commerce to support and volunteer at the Parade of Lights in December.
  • Highway Clean-Up – Scottsvillle-Mumford Road from the Village line to Wheatland Center Road – three times each year.  Honk and as you go by 😊
Fellowship and friendship events are a special time of fun. 
  • In September, our club hosted a Rotary Friendship Exchange group from Oregon.  Special connections are made and are lasting. 
  • In January, we hosted a District Governor Elect and his wife from Australia as they were traveling to the International Assembly training event in San Diego. 
These are special ways to promote peace and good will while learning and bonding with others across the nation and the world.
Our bi-annual “Spring Fling,” co-hosted with the Greater Wheatland Area CofC, will be held April 29th.  This evening is one of our fundraising events to support the projects we take on.  It is an evening of food, fellowship, wine tasting, silent auction, and music.  This has been a great evening in the past, and we look forward to another stellar evening.  Please join us as we support our youth and other charitable projects. Advance reservations are a must.
A special event each year is our Groundhog Dinner, co-hosted with the Scottsville Lions Club.  This is a nice evening out in the bleak mid-winter, a great ham dinner, and an opportunity again to support our youth: the WCHS Interact Club, and the Leadership Assets initiative.  Plan to join us next February.
We are now looking forward to the annual Scottsville Family Fun Fest.  We enjoy providing support to the 5K race and manning the Information Table at the festival.  We will again be selling wine raffle tickets.  Your chance to win a case of several different wines hand selected by our favorite “wine guy,” Dave Principino.  We will begin selling the raffle tickets at the Spring Fling and continue selling through the day at the summer festival.  Don’t miss out.
