TRUSSVILLE — The Trussville Noon Rotary Club announces the induction of its officers and directors for 2022-23. The ceremony was presided over by Assistant Governor for Rotary District 6860 Sharon Hogg of Jasper.
Officers are President Sharon Stauffer, Past President Glenn Slye, Secretary Ron Layne, and Treasurer Bob Hicks. In addition, Carole Brindley, Glynn Slye, Bob Hicks, and Teresa Fuller serve as club directors.
“We look forward to another year of working together as we continue to seek out needs in our community and address them to the best of our ability,” Stauffer said. “We’re a small group, but our commitment to Rotary’s culture of service is strong.”
Over the past year, Trussville Noon Rotary has contributed to Serving You Ministries and The Lovelady Center with district grants totaling $7,200 and made club donations to Big Oak Ranch, Camp ASCCA, Boy Scouts of America, Positive Choices, and Rotary’s high school organization, Interact. The club also provides scholarships to qualifying local high school graduates.
Members voluntarily contribute to the Rotary Foundation, which funds worldwide endeavors, and to the Polio Plus program, which, since 1988, has been instrumental in reducing new polio cases from 350,000 by 99.9 percent.
In cooperation with Estandon Rotario Club of Victorio, Mexico, and Rotary International, Trussville Noon Rotary helped build and equip a hospital in Victorio, as well as provide a mobile dental clinic and two ambulances. Each year, club member Dr. Hugh Brindley leads a medical mission team to the area.
“This club is proof that only a handful of people with giving hearts can help accomplish mighty things,” Stauffer said. “We invite anyone who’s interested in serving others, whether close to home or around the world, to join us.”
Chartered as Birmingham East Rotary in 1972 and renamed Trussville Noon Rotary in 2011, the club meets for lunch each Wednesday at the Hampton Inn-Trussville.
