A Sunday Well Spent With Rotary Friends

The pride in community service isn’t volunteer hours. It’s the understanding of the impact

It was a busy weekend for the Rotaractors from the Rotaract Club of Armstrong State University. Much of the week was spent getting ready for a busy Saturday on February 25, 2017. Three projects, organized by several Rotary Clubs in Savannah and our own project – Pirate Preview took place on the same day almost at the same time range.

The Rotary Club of Savannah (In the Rotary District 6920) organized the high school speech competition. It took place in the Richmond Hill Community Center. 14 talented individuals from high schools around Savannah spoke about Rotary and the four-way test. Each speaker had 3-4 minutes of speaking time and the speeches were absolutely amazing. The winner of the competition won $1000 in scholarship which they can utilize for their college education. The event started at like 9:00 AM and went on till 1:00 pm. Rotaractor Nipuna Ambanpola attended the event representing the Rotaract Club as one of the judges.

Some of the other Rotaractors helped the Rotary Club of Skidaway Island at the America’s 2nd Harvest Food Bank. The event started at like 9:00 AM and everyone together was able to pack close to about 600 parcels. It was a great experience for our Rotaractors Nikki, Michael and Austin. Right after the food packing, they headed back to Armstrong for the Pirate Preview.

The Pirate Preview took place in front of the Student Union. The event was organized for the incoming Pirates to take a glimpse about different resources (including student organizations) that are offered on campus. The Rotaract club hosted an information booth to invite the pirates to join and to also expose the impact we make in the community through an International organization.
