Pensacola Seville Rotary Club Celebrates One Year

Pensacola, FL ., July 19, 2010 --- Over fifty members, along with their families, friends, and visiting Rotarians gathered at Heritage Hall to celebrate the One Year Anniversary of the Pensacola Seville Rotary Club.

The Pensacola Seville Rotary club has fifty-six active members, with the majority of those being charter members.

“Our rotary club is unique because it appeals to a young professional demographic and is the only club in the Pensacola area, and one of only two clubs in the District, which meets in the evenings. We have found that our club is a favorite for make-ups because after work we unwind, network with fellow Rotarians, and then enjoy a presentation by a guest speaker who is usually from our community,” said Aeiko Mitchell, club member.

In its first year, the club has done a number of noteworthy things, including hosting a Group Study Exchange student from India, hosting Rotarian John Capps, raising funds for the Backpacks for Costa Rica International Project, adopting Oakcrest Elementary School, donating two latrines for the Etta Project, participating in Literacy Week and the Brown Barge Career Fair, and welcoming over two hundred visiting Rotarians and Guests.

If the first year is any indication of what is to come this club has a bright future, having received both The District 6940 Governor’s Citation Award and The Presidential Citation Award for the 2009-2010 Rotary year.

Visiting Rotarians and Guests are welcomed to attend the club’s weekly meetings which are held Tuesdays at 5:30pm in Rosie O’Grady’s at Seville Quarter.
