Anthony and Susan Mia were among Rotary Club of Norfolk members joining with our Norfolk Collegiate Interact students and nearly 100 other volunteers to help the Lafayette Wetlands Partnership plant along Knitting Mill Creek in Colonial Place on Saturday. The demonstration project is designed to create a buffer along a new walking path along an area that until now has been a mud flat. This volunteer effort supports a grant our club made to the Partnership to help rebuild wetlands in Norfolk.
Harbor's Edge rolled out the red carpet on April 21 for the spring Rotary Club social. Pictured are Dona Overstreet (left) and Pam Tubbs. They were among nearly 90 Rotarians and guests who gathered on an upstairs terrace overlooking the Elizabeth River for an after-work social sponsored by Harbor's Edge. Delectable food, delicious beverages and good camaraderie made for a special evening for all. Thanks to go Linwood Beckner for arranging for this event and to the entire Harbor's Edge staff for making us feel so welcome and like we could easily all move right into this retirement community.

Another Club volunteer opportunity! Tattoo dress rehearsal for Special Audience. Love the Higson tartan in honor of the VA Military Tattoo.
Virginia First Lady Dorothy McAuliffe got to see Rotary impact up close recently when she visited the Elizabeth River Project's Learning Barge with students from Tidewater Park Elementary School. Grants of $12,500 from the Rotary District and the Norfolk and Portsmouth clubs paid for environmental exhibits, including science buckets, on the barge as well as teacher materials and instructor kayaks at Paradise Creek Nature Park. Rotary's contribution was highlighted at a special luncheon. It also is acknowledged on a big banner on the floating classroom where thousands of students from Hampton Roads come on field trips each year.
Cynthia Carter-West invited TOP SECRET drummers to give the club an appetizer of what they will do in the Virginia Military Tattoo this week. David Uhlmann, the leader of the Swiss team, shared the history and requirements for being a member of this exceptional group.
