TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club inducted a new member at its June 9 meeting. Brad Wideman joined at the invitation of club Rotarian Jef Freeman.
Brad has a family history with the club. His late father, David, was president of the club in 1992-93. David was also one of the Rotarians, along with Martin Woosley, who invited Jef to join Rotary in 1995.
The Rotary International motto is ‘Service above Self,’ and this club lives out this motto by serving the community in many ways. Proceeds from fundraising events, including the coordination of a golf tournament for more than 25 years, go toward the club’s many projects.
Those projects include leadership opportunities for local high school students, Dr. Seuss books for local elementary students, ribbons at City Hall in recognition of Veterans’ Day, lunch for campers and staff at Smile-a-Mile, trees planted at Civitan Park, and more. The Club has recently funded the new clock tower in downtown Trussville, benches at the walking track at Cahaba Elementary, and playground equipment at the Mall in historic Trussville.
The Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club meets at First Baptist Church Trussville on Wednesday mornings at 7 a.m. For more information on the Club, or to help with one of our projects, please ‘like’ us on Facebook (Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club) or email Diane Poole at firstname.lastname@example.org.
