TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville Daybreak Rotary Club had a “Traveling Rotary” event on Wednesday, May 25, traveling to a couple of their recent projects for photos.
With the help of Rotary grants and the City of Trussville, the Trussville Daybreak Rotary Club has placed two solar-powered benches that can be used for phone charging in local parks. They have also installed a Rotary clock downtown, becoming a beautiful focal point for the city. Finally, they ended at the new Cahaba Building for pastries, coffee, juice, and social time.
Rotary International is a global network of 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders and whose motto is, ‘Service above Self.’ This club lives out this motto by serving the community in many ways. Proceeds from fundraising events, including coordinating a golf tournament for almost 30 years, go toward the club’s many projects.
Those projects include leadership opportunities for local high school 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. In addition, the Club recently funded the new clock in downtown Trussville, benches at the walking track at Cahaba Elementary, and playground equipment at The Mall in historic Trussville.
The Club meets at First Baptist Church Trussville at 7 a.m. on Wednesday mornings. For more information on the Trussville Rotary Club Daybreak, or to help with one of our projects, find them on Facebook (Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club) or email Diane Poole at firstname.lastname@example.org.
