Dr. Michael Carlson and the associates of Carlson Funeral Home welcomed Medina Sunrise Rotary to an Anniversary Celebration and fellowship breakfast recognizing the club's 20 years of service to Medina.

"We received our club charter from Rotary International in 1994," stated founding club president Becky Shotwell.  "From the very beginning, we have been committed to making a difference in the lives of children in our community and beyond through our time, talents and treasures."

The event was marked by an historic video of the club produced by Carlson Funeral Homes as a special anniversary gift.  A formal flag raising ceremony with a military escort, VFW Post #5137 Honor Guard, 21 gun salute, Taps, the Pledge of Allegiance and a Celtic Eagle bagpiper playing Amazing Grace completed the memorable program.

Dr. Michael Davanzo of the Medina Sunrise Rotary Club, accompanied by First Lady Judith Davanzo, was inaugurated NE-Ohio Rotary District Governor 6630 in a formal banner exchange ceremony to mark the beginning of a his 2014-15 term of office. 

The upscale event was held at the Root Candles' Community Room which had been graciously provided by The A.I. Root Company.  Over 100 guests enjoyed the music, food and fellowship while extending their congratulations and well wishes to Dr. and Mrs. Davanzo as they assume leadership of the district's 56 Rotary Clubs, 5 College Rotaract Clubs, 16 High School Interact Clubs and 6 International Youth Exchange Students.

“'Light Up Rotary' is our International Theme," declared Dr. Davanzo, "but it is more than our theme. It is how we live in Rotary, how we think in Rotary, how we feel, and how we work. It is how we make a difference — every day, in every club, every community, every district, and every country where we serve.”

"How you Light Up Rotary is up to you,” Davanzo emphasized. “You know where you are strong, you know what your community needs, and you know how you can help."  When we come together as 1.22 million Rotarians to eradicate polio — and we will — we will have proved ourselves a global service organization capable of great things. And we’ll be even better equipped for the next challenge we choose to take on. We’ll have given the world a gift that will endure forever.”

The Medina Sunrise Rotary Club recently partnered with Judge Kevin Dunn on a Build-a-Bear Workshop.

“All our hard-working Rotarian and student volunteers were a big help,” said retired Judge Judy Cross, Rotary project chair. “The Build-A-Bear program, under Medina County Common Pleas Judge Kevin Dunn, was another big success this year as last. The lovable bears will be given to local foster children and distributed to some of the children who currently attend Medina County’s Windfall School.”

Rotary Club President John Ross added, “We are pleased to continue our partnership with Judge Kevin Dunn on such a worthy project. The Build-a-Bear program is a perfect extension of our Medina Sunrise Rotary mission of ‘Making a difference in the lives of children in our community and beyond through our time, talents and treasures.’”

Medina Sunrise Rotary was honored to have our Past Ohio District Governor Jack Young, accompanied by Marsha Pappalardo, visiting today to officiate the Passing of the Gavel Ceremony, to introduce our Rotary International 2013-14 Theme, '"Engage Rotary, Change Lives" and to induct Nate Bowman into the fellowship of Rotary.

"The Passing of the Gavel Ceremony is an honored Rotary tradition signifying the responsibility associated with the office of club president," stated Mr. Young.

In this ceremony, the outgoing club president, Vance Truman, hands the gavel to the District Officer representing Rotary, Jack Young, signifying the return of the responsibility of which he/she was entrusted upon assuming the presidency. The Rotary District Officer then passes the gavel to the incoming club president, John Ross, thus demonstrating confidence in the new president's ability to handle the responsibility of the office of president and maintain or better the club and fulfill the Rotary Motto of "Service Above Self."

Mr. Young concluded the Passing of the Gavel and New Member Induction Ceremonies by thanking the club for their commitment to service and invited all to join him in welcoming our newest Medina Sunrise Rotarian, Nate Bowman, CFO/MCA for Keller Williams in Medina.
