Holiday Toy Project – A District Grant Project:

Under difficult Covid circumstances we were still able to have our Holiday Toy Project for the J Colin English Head Start Students.  We were able to provide each of 84 students with two toys, a pair of shoes, and an outfit, all were placed in bags for each family.  Since we couldn’t have Santa and Mrs. Claus come to the school, Zoom sessions were held with the students talking with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

New Member:
Always a great day when we can welcome a new member to our club.  Lenny Cannova was inducted on December 10th.  Lenny (center) with Dwight (inductor) and John standing in for Lenny’s sponsor Wendy.







District Governor Official Club Visit:
District Governor Darryl Keys and Area Governor Suzanne Vasbinder made their official club visit on October 15th.  President David presented DG Darryl with a certificate showing our club had donated a “Wheelchair” from the Wheelchair Foundation in his name in recognition of his service to Rotary.

Officer Changeover:
With the virus effect, we were finally able to officially have the changeover of our officers on July 9th.  Incoming President David Rice presented outgoing President Bill Thomas with his Past-President Gavel plaque, pin, and name badge.  Even with the virus, we had a rewarding Rotary year and look forward to the new year.

Rotarian of the Year – 2020
John Mina was recognized as our Rotarian of the Year.  President Bill presented John with a plaque and a Paul Harris Fellow award on June 18th.

Golf Tournament Charity Recipient:
This year, Valerie’s House was the charity selected to receive our golf tournament charity donation.  Valeries’s House provides children who have lost a loved one a place where they can connect with others their own age, grieve together, and learn that their loss doesn’t have to limit their dreams.  On June 5th, 2020, our check was presented.

Dictionary Day:

Our club participated in the District wide project to provide dictionaries to all public school third graders.  Our Rotarians along with students from the North Fort Myers Interact Club participated in providing dictionaries to four schools in our area.



Rotary’s Polio Plus, started in 1979, has raised over $1.7 billion, performed countless hours of volunteer time, and has inoculated over 2.5 billion children around the world.  Polio cases have been reduced by 99+ % since 1988 (350,000 cases worldwide) to 22 cases reported in 2017.  This January 2019, our own David Rice volunteered to volunteer to go to India as part of a Rotary Polio Plus Inoculation Team and administer the vaccine.
