Official Visit #35 – Derby-Shelton Rotary – Inducts 3 new members today

I had the pleasure of inducting 3 fabulous new members into the Derby-Shelton Rotary Club today as being the big speaker at Ernie Luise’s home club wasn’t enough fun!!

Inducted into our Rotary family today was:

  • Porter McKinnon (Director of Sales & Marketing at Allegra) and sponsored by Mary Ellen Samatulski
  • Kelly Morrisey (Personal Fitness Manager & Author at The Edge Fitness Club) and sponsored by Linda Holmes
  • Shaye Roscoe (Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club) and sponsored by Bill Nimmons

The Derby-Shelton Rotary Club is a very active (and fun) mid-sized club that has been around since 1927.

Some of the things that this club does especially well:

  • Generously give out scholarships
  • Team up with the Valley United Way to support unique gardening projects
  • Recognize outstanding Students of the Month
  • Actively participate in Amber Alert
  • Sponsor a community based Interact Club
  • Host Inbound Youth Exchange Students
  • Run Shelton Day
  • Run Hoptoberfest event
  • Generously support The Rotary Foundation

The Derby-Shelton Club recently (last year) dedicated a new 3,000 sq/ft pavilion at the Shelton Riverwalk. This was a massive multi-year six figure+ project by the club which yielded a beautiful community pavilion.

This is a club with an interesting mix of membership that is clearly on the move under President Bill Miller’s expert leadership. They get big things done and have big plans.

The Derby-Shelton Rotary Club meets on Thursdays for lunch at the Brownson Country Club in Shelton. It’s a nice place to make-up with a great group of Rotarians that also features fabulous views of the golf course.
