As we begin the new year, the Rotary Club of Charlottesville is pleased to celebrate this year’s Rotary theme, Be a Gift to the World.  Our club is proud of the many community service and outreach projects that we conduct each year.  These will include the introduction of a youth literacy community service effort, Imagination Library, in partnership with the local non-profit, City of Promise; a vocational program for high school students presented by subject matter experts in over ten professional fields, and conducted at the Lake Anna Nuclear Power facility in partnership with Dominion Power;  contribution of foods to local families in the week prior to Thanksgiving; community service support of the Salvation Army during the month of December; a Rotary Speech Contest for local high schools students in January/February as part of the District 7610 Speech Contest finals; and support of local area high school students to attend the Rotary Youth Leadership Award Program in October and the Chesapeake Bay Conference in June.  The Rotary Club of Charlottesville is proud to continue its monthly recognition of outstanding local high school students by inviting them, their family members and high school principals to speak at club meetings where they are presented with the Rotary International Certificate of Merit for their leadership and service to the community; as well as club mentoring of the Interact Club at Western Albemarle High School.   Additionally, our club is proud of its active Grants Committee which annually invites proposals from non-profits for numerous grants (this past year, our club made over ten grants) in addition to our annual club fundraising event, which this year benefitted the City of Promise and its mentoring objectives supporting local area youth to complete their education and enter college.
These service activities of the Rotary Club of Charlottesville support our community and our world.  We are pleased to have a great team of club members committed to the Rotary principals and values which our Rotary District 7610 Governor Janet Brown describes as our individual and collective gifts to the world.
