Food Drive 2012
by Charles, Ray

Lake Spivey Rotary Club Winter Food Drive a Huge Success!

Because of the overwhelming number of families in need of the most basic food and general household necessities throughout our community, RC of Lake Spivey decided to hold a food drive.  The club set a collection goal at 500 lbs for the 5-week project.  Not surprisingly, we exceeded our goal and collected a total of 602 lb.

All collections were donated to a local organization “Food for the Soul Food Pantry” who was having difficulties keeping their closets stocked.

White Elephant Exchange 2012

Lake Spivey Rotary Club

Fun  . . . Fellowship & Good Times

Lake Spivey held a “Grinch Exchange” party as part of a club meeting on December 12th. Traditionally known as “White Elephant Exchange,” this is a lighthearted way to have fun exchanging presents that are considered tacky, unusual, or unwanted trinkets to be re-gifted.  A great time was had by all. Needless to say, we have very creative Rotarian's with an enormous amount of humor!

The Rotary Club of Lake Spivey, a breakfast club with Debbie Walker as president, and the Rotary Club of Clayton County, a lunch club with D. J. Fulton as president, joined together Friday, October 19, to launch a first for the two clubs: a joint golf tournament. 

The joint venture developed from a tournament conducted by the Rotary Club of Lake Spivey, which meets at the Lake Spivey Golf Club at 8255 Club House Way in Jonesboro. A successful event in previous years, the tournament more than doubled this year in all the important measurements as a joint venture. Furthermore, both clubs also got to enjoy in a very real way the "Family of Rotary." The joint committee which made the tournament work so well consisted from the Lake Spivey Club of: Jim Corbin, Co-chair, and members Joe Hamilton, Cephus Jackson, Song Keovongsak, Caroline Rosser, Ron Swofford, and Debbie Walker; and from the Clayton County Club: D. J. Fulton, Co-chair, and members Raymond Baggarly and Claudia Mertl.

Two interesting highlights were the opportunity to win a Jack Daniels Whiskey Barrel autographed by master distiller Jimmy Bedford provided by the Stockbridge Bottle Shop and the Hole in One opportunity to win a new Cadillac sponsored by Heritage Cadillac. The Jack Daniels Barrel served as a prize for a raffle conducted to supplement the tournament proceeds. Art Rosser won the Jack Daniels Barrel.  Player George Lawson with an extraordinary shot on hole number 15 performed one of the most rare actions in all of sport and got a hole in one. His reward was a new $37,000.00 Cadillac provided by Heritage Cadillac.

A desire to repeat the tournament is likely. The fellowship that all enjoyed and the fundraising that will support many Rotary projects in Clayton County proved to be more than just successful.

You come to the meetings most of the time. Isn’t that good? You pay your dues on time. Heck, because the club drafts you, you even give $100 per year to the Rotary Foundation. Isn’t that enough? Who cares about an International Convention in Atlanta that will celebrate 100 years of Rotary Foundation? Is it all about how you can get by or what you have to do? Can’t it be about how you can serve and contribute? Sometimes we get complacent and accept the status quo. How many clubs do we have in our District? How many clubs are in Georgia? Have any idea? What about clubs next to us around Georgia or Florida? OK, it is not important to know how many there are.  It is important to know that there are ethical and dedicate Rotarians all around. There are clubs doing great service right at our doorstep, but we don’t see them in action. RLI is a format that allows Rotarians, new members and longtime members, to see more of the world of potential that is Rotary.  Clubs are doing great things locally and internationally. They are raising money successfully, floating grants successfully, and having fun at the same time! It is inspiring to see how others contribute and make a difference in the name of Rotary!

An RLI attendee said, "I was a member of a Rotary Club for 21 years, but after completing RLI and learning the true essence of what Rotary is, I now consider myself a Rotarian.”

Is it time to open your Rotary eyes? There is so much to be excited about, to be a part of, to be proud of. How are you coming along on your journey to becoming a Rotarian?
