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!!!
What do you do when a great holiday falls on our meeting day??? We have a party of course!! RCCC got all the members, families and even a couple visitors together for a St. Patrick’s Day social filled with green beads, flashing lights, great food and a couple cold Irish adult beverages!! Fellowship is part of everything we do and involving our Rotary families is critical to this part of our club!! We want to involve our spouses, children and friends in what we do not have them see us go out the door to “Rotary” every week!! We want everyone to know each other and celebrate the “ Family of Rotary”. Have you been looking for a a service opportunity that can involve your family and be more of an extension rather than something that takes you away? Looking for a way to get your children involved in the world of service to the community no matter the age? You found it…..“The Creek” on the move!!!!
We continue to have our monthly service projects and making changes in our community! Projects in the past couple months include clean up projects, child development projects and supporting our own Rotary Foundation! We have committed to 8 service projects for the Rotary year and we are already done with that looking at exceeding our goal!! A special part of our club is the desire to give back and part of our foundation success pieces. We are looking for people with the same mindset of service and fellowship…are you one of those professionals looking for a way to fill that void in your life? Come join us!!
We knew that things would take off for our little club when our model was in full swing!! We have had so many service projects, new members and this all on top of our official banner ceremony it is a challenge to keep up!! We have had service projects at the Blood Center, one at a farm for recovering children and siblings with cancer. We have inducted some awesome members with many more in the process!! There comes a time as a club establishes its own culture that you are evaluating what is important and what we hold precious to our future. Our founding principles of fellowship and service have continue to expand and attracting a great deal of attention both
in the district and around the world. Come see the new model of a Rotary club and why this is NOT what you expected!
