Rotary Club of Tucker County (West Virginia, US, RI District 6900) now has a satellite club in Parsons, designed as a way to welcome new members and make it easier for more people to attend the organisation’s meetings.
The first meeting of the Parsons Rotary Club took place on Thursday at the Tucker Community Foundation’s Parsons office, with District Governor David Raese, of Morgantown, serving as the speaker.
Raese shared how much of an impact Rotary has made in his life, and how excited he is to be able to travel to clubs throughout the state.
“There are so many good things about Rotary — doing good for others, the fellowship, and it’s also a chance to network,” he said, noting every Rotary club hosts a variety of fundraisers and projects to help communities here and abroad.
“Anywhere you go, anywhere in the world, you can find a Rotary club and you will be welcomed. It’s remarkable,” he said. “I can’t recommend it highly enough.”
Tucker County Rotary Secretary Lois Nelson said the local group has supported the community in many ways, such as providing smoke detectors and dictionaries to local students, in addition to supporting the fight to eradicate polio, which is a major goal of Rotary clubs worldwide.
“Making the world a better place — that’s truly what Rotary does,” Nelson said.
New members of the Parson Club were welcomed at Thursday’s meeting, including Robert Burns, Patrick Darlington, Jonathan Hicks, Dr Cindy Kolsun, April Miller and Jason Myers.
Nelson said the Parsons Club will meet the second and fourth Thursday of each month at noon at the Tucker Community Foundation’s Parsons office.
She added that the Tucker County Rotary Club meets at 12.15 pm on the the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at the Sawmill Restaurant on William Avenue in Davis.
Rotary members are welcome to attend other club’s meetings. More information is available by emailing tuckercountyrotary@gmail.com.
