17 Trees planted at Coconut Creek City Hall

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’.

20 Reasons to Join Rotary Club of Coconut Creek

I joined Rotary to make some contacts and meet business leaders in my community. I quickly discovered that while relationships are formed and business does transpire within a Rotary Club, the Service and Fellowship aspects are what keep me coming back and drive me to do better.

If you are looking for a spark in your life, and to connect with other good and like minded people locally, then give us a try. We meet every other week and our speakers always have great topics to share. Plus you’ll learn about what it means to be a Rotarian and how our club takes action locally to serve the community and make North Broward a better place to raise our families and earn our business. I hope to see you there.

 

Governor’s Visit, Interact and Youth Exchange

For those of you who did not attend the RCC meeting last night, you are going to wish that you had. The evening started with a visit from District 6990 Governor Larry Herman and Assistant Governor John Deihl. Larry spoke about the Rotarians for Hope initiative and the importance of Club activity.

The Interact Club from North Broward Prep was given a Certificate recognizing the Interact Club. Both Interact President Yash Moondhra, and Vice President Jake Renko were on hand to receive this from the Club.

Making her first for many appearances was Aya, our Youth Exchange Student from Brazil. She introduced herself to the Club and expressed how happy she was to be here and looks forward to sharing time with each of us.

We also had in attendance some good friends from other Rotary clubs in the district and a possible new member. The evening ended with Fellowship with Wings and Beer where everyone just relaxed and enjoyed each others company.

Want to be a part of this? We are easy to follow, just check us out here and on Facebook and Twitter. We have a very exciting year planned with Service Projects and Fund Raisers so book mark us so you do not miss a single event. Be a part of the “Best Kept Secret” in Coconut Creek.

We hope to see you soon.
