Of the things we think, say and do...
Although new, our Club already has an active history in the community and beyond. Here is a partial list of projects of which we have been involved.
Service Above Self AwardServing others without regard to personal gain or recognition is a key principle of Rotary. It is for this reason why we have instituted a "Service Above Self" award. To be eligible for this award, the candidate must be under the age of 18 and reside within the East Lake / Oldsmar community. This will be awarded monthly to the candidate who best epitomizes the spirit of volunteering and giving to the community.
