The Madison Rotary Club is an active force in their community and the world that does an incredible amount of things for a Club in their mid 40’s (membership size, not age). Some of the many things that this Club does includes:
- The Warm the Children Program (run in conjunction with Guilford Rotary)
- Amber Alert
- The Dictionary Project
- Scholarships for High School Students
- Generous supporting the Rotary Foundation
Besides being excellent stewards of their community, many Madison Rotarians are also very active at the district level including:
- Dale Moore being heavily involved with Public Image and is Co-Publisher of the D7980 Beacon
- Jim Satterwhite as the District Chair for the Paul Harris Society
- Robert Friend as Assistant Governor
- Jean Ferris being integral part in the District Foundation team
- Brian Bishop is the District Community Service Chair and also an integral part in the District Foundation team
- Art Criddle part of the district Interact Team under Youth Services
The Madison Rotary Club just celebrated their 85th anniversary on May 1st at the Clinton Country Club. It was a grand affair which recognized the seemingly countless accomplishments by the scores and scores of Madison Rotarians over the years.
According to President Craig Bernard and his Board; The Club isn’t resting on their laurels as they are in the process of reinventing themselves by growing their membership by 10, changing up their fundraisers, expanding their public image and strengthening their Club Foundation to do even more good in the community and in the world.
I was greeted at the Madison Rotary Club yesterday with a very delicious yellow cake made by Madison Rotarian Ruth DeSarbo, which I sincerely appreciate. I am looking forward to visiting my good friends in Madison again soon. It’s appropriate that the Madison Rotary Club meets at a place called Friends & Company on Thursdays for lunch.
Want Ruth DeSarbo to make you a tasty cake? Then become District Governor, we are scouting for 2016-17 candidates.
Stop in and visit the nice Rotarians at the Madison Rotary Club and you definitely enjoy the jokes during Happy Bucks as well as their hospitality.
