TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club inducted a new president during a special meeting at First Baptist Church Trussville, on June 30.
Greg Carroll, a pharmacist and the owner of Carroll Pharmacy, will replace Ty Williams.
Carroll said there are four reasons people should join Rotary. Those reasons are leadership development, service opportunities, friendships, and social opportunities.
His goals are represented by five S’s:
– Seek global grants. An international partner will need to be identified.
– Service projects. Identify more and do a better job of tracking volunteer hours.
– Strategic planning. Members will be named to serve on this important committee to determine the future of the club.
– Satellite club in Springville. The club will continue its efforts toward starting a satellite club in this neighboring community.
– Shine the club. Tell the club’s story – not just through the media but also one-on-one to recruit new members. The club may even consider doing a monthly membership drive one day a month where every member invites someone to attend.
Carroll asked for suggestions and prayers and said his faith will guide him in this leadership role.
As for Williams, the club thanked him for his positive attitude and accomplishments during a pandemic year.
During his yearlong term, the club was able to distribute refurbished computers to students who needed them for online education, provided books and book nooks for students in underserved areas, thanks to a partnership with Better Basics, and much more. The club also donated the Rotary clock in downtown Trussville.
The Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club meets at 7 a.m. on the first through fourth Wednesday mornings of each month at First Baptist Church Trussville. For more information on the Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club, or to help with one of our projects, please email Diane Poole at email@example.com.
