What a great time we had preparing the 552 dictionaries that we purchased to distribute to the Coconut Creek Elementary School 3rd Graders. Our last drop off was today, Nov. 25th and we really enjoyed presenting the dictionaries to the classes. The children were so appreciative and had many engaging questions. We appreciate all of the kind notes of thanks we have been receiving.
What a wonderful time we had visiting Abi’s Place (a center for children with autism and complex disabilities) to deliver the specialty communication devices we purchased to help support their programs. Not only did they take us on a tour of the facility but they also allowed a few of the children to demo how these devices work. It was very impactful to see the positive effects these special products have on the children.

The members of our Club were honored to install 17 Bald Cypress Trees around the lake at the City Hall complex in Coconut Creek. Originally this project was conceived back in 2017 to be a ‘one tree per club member’ installation. After the MSD shooting our club chose to plant these trees in honor of those 17 lives that were cut short on that fateful Valentines Day. Our hope is that some measure of solace and beauty may be restored to the community as these trees grow and blossom. We had a great turn out and even though not all of our club members could attend this was truly a ‘all hands on deck’ project as there was much planning and some fund raising that went on to see this project to its completion. The members of ‘The Creek’ as we affectionately call ourselves are a fun-loving group of local business and community leaders (or leaders-to-be) that seek out Service projects that are in line with Rotary Internationals motto of ‘Service Above Self’.
