In its first year of existence since the change from the former RC of Miami Lakes, RC of Coconut Creek was recognized by President Ron Burton with a Presidential Citation and the added bonus of with Distinction for going so far above and beyond the requirements!! It has been an emotional year of many successes and growth!! The RC of Coconut Creek grew from 5 starting members to now 16 members 98% of them from the outside that wanted to give back to our community! The RC of Coconut Creek follows a different format with only two formal meetings per month, one social and one service project. New members find this appealing to today’s work schedule and the desire to have sweat equity in hands on service! Come see what we are all about! Check out the Meeting Schedule link and come by to say hello!! “The Creek” on the move!!!
In our first year the Rotary Club of Coconut Creek made a fantastic showing in our brand new club shirts and with 98% attendance from the club! We brought home two awards for district attendance percentages and for our Facebook page!! Everyone in attendance knew we were in the house as the awards were announced and “the Creek” was a roar with 13 members cheering on President Drew Monaghan when he collected our winnings!! Congrats to the entire club and thank you for all your efforts in our first year!!
