TRUSSVILLE – The Trussville Rotary Daybreak Club recently inducted another new member.
On October 25, new member Jay Ghelani was inducted. Ghelani is vice president for operations at fire extinguisher giant Amerex Corporation based in Trussville.
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 over 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. The Club funded the 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 email@example.com.
