Winter weather forced the Wakefield Rotary Club of Wake Forest to reschedule its Get to Know Rotary lunch for Thursday, April 9, 2015, 11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the TPC Wakefield Plantation, 2201 Wakefield Plantation Drive.
The lunch meeting is open to anyone who wants to learn more about Rotary and the service projects it engages in locally as well as internationally.
Wakefield Rotary club is a community service organization made up of local individuals who value Service Above Self. Chartered in 2009, the club is a voluntary organization of diverse individuals in business, government, non-profit and community groups united to provide humanitarian service in the community, state, country and world.
“Due to winter weather conditions in February, we moved our club’s Get to Know Rotary Day to April 9,” said Wakefield Rotary Club Co-President Laura Jazab. “We invite the community to join us for lunch and learn how our shared passion for service creates positive, lasting change in our community and around the world.”
Wakefield Rotarians host many service projects throughout the year. The club raises funds through its annual Lucky 13 Reverse Raffle and Dinner. In 2014, it raised more than $7,000 at this event.
The club members sponsor and volunteer at the Wake Forest High School Special Needs Prom and create awareness for polio with its Purple Pinkie Campaign during Wake Forest’s Meet in the Street. Anyone who donates $1 or more gets to stamp their purple pinkie on a sign, which is displayed at its events. Donations from the Purple Pinkie Campaign support immunization campaigns in countries where children remain at risk of getting polio.
The April 9 lunch will feature Magic Man Richard Reid, who will present an energetic and interactive magic show that includes cards, ropes and ordinary objects.
Those who want to attend the Get to Know Rotary lunch are asked to respond to Donna Bishop, Rotary membership chairwoman, 919-426-8035 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
