It was a happy day at Eggleston Services business center when workers and staff cut the ribbon and dedicated two new benches provided by Rotary Club of Norfolk grants. The eight-foot blue benches are emblazoned with "Norfolk Rotary" on the seat backs. They provide a comfortable place for workers to relax and wait for rides from work. Eighteen club members attended the dedication and enjoyed a VIP tour of the Norfolk center that provides jobs for disabled adults. Among those attending was long-time Eggleston board member and Rotarian Ted Baker. Click here to see more photos and for a good look at one of the new Rotary benches.
Colin McKinnon put on quite a show for his fellow Rotarians recently as he led the daily noon demonstration at the Chrysler Museum of Art's glass studio. More than a dozen Rotarians came to watch Colin in action. Colin, who volunteers and trains at the glass studio, turned molten glass into a colorful, long-necked vase while a studio staff member gave step-by-step narration of the process. See more images of Colin at work in this photo album posted to the homepage of the club website: http://bit.ly/1I8cSrB.Thanks go to Rotarian Dyteya Lewis for the photos.
Rotarian and District Governor Nominee John Padgett (left) sponsored Anthony Walters, district vice president of the YMCA of South Hampton Roads, as a new Rotarian. He was inducted Nov. 17.
Chris Weber of Chesapeake, a senior at the Governor's School for the Arts in downtown Norfolk, treated Rotarians to an impromptu concert recently to showcase the new handmade marimba a club grant made possible. Before the marimba arrived Chris, a percussionist who plans to attend a conservatory to prepare for a career as a professional musician, had to travel to Old Dominion University to practice play marimba. His instructors describe the instrument as "the grand piano of the percussion section." Chris and other percussion students are excited about the marimba and proud of it. To hear Chris playing check out the short video on our club's Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/RotaryClubOfNorfolk/
Rotarians and Past Presidents Mark Shaw and John Lynn congratulated the club in generous giving globaly and locally: The Rotary Foundation and Norfolk Rotary Endowment. Keep up the EREY (Every Member Every Year) status.
