Rotary celebrates open house

CROSSVILLE — In celebration of Rotary International’s January theme Rotary Awareness, Fairfield  Glade Rotary Club hosted an Open House at Scarlett’s Catering on Peavine Rd.

The Tuesday event was an evening of dinner, fellowship, and presentations  in Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self.”

Among the programs were an overview by Paul Wennermark of Rotary’s International programs in Polio Eradication, most recently in India, where local Rotarian Deanna Magdich and Phil Magdich joined other Rotarians in providing immunizations to at-risk children; Clean Water in Haiti and Mexico; Youth Exchange; and Rotary Foundation.

Local Charitable and Community Partnership programs were presented by Wilson Jackson. These included Avalon, Bread of Life, Kids On The Rise, Honor Air, Cumberland County Playhouse, Art Guild, Fairfield Glade Resident Services, Lonely Instruments for Needy Kids (LINKS), Fire Department, Scholarships, and more.

The Cumberland County High School Cheerleaders were presented with a check by Rotary President Chris Celik, with assistance from Assistant District Governor Geoff Fine, and President Elect Bruce Horn, to help defray the costs for them to compete at the National Championships at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL, on Feb. 8–9. Receiving the check was Melissa Kerley, coach of the Cheerleading  team. A presentation was also made to Dwight Wages, Southern Stars Symphonic Brass, who received a check for the Lonely Instruments for Needy Kids (LINKS) program.

The program delivers band instruments to our local schools to further the musical and academic education for the youth of our community. Also on hand to receive the Rotary donation was Dr. Rebecca Wood, Assistant Director of Curriculum Instruction and Accountability for Cumberland County Schools, and Mr. Josh Geary, Stone Memorial High School Band Director.

The evening was very well received and Members and Guests enjoyed good food, good fellowship, and we trust, a heightened awareness of what  Rotary can achieve through “Service Above Self” in both our local community and internationally.
