The Woodmen of the World recently presented the Sparta Rotary Club with their Community Partner Award for 2014.
Pictured above are Tim Bumbalough and Regina Wilhite from Woodmen of the World along with Sparta Rotary Club president John Downs.
White County High School Students Paul Gibson, Whitney Kirby, Lucas Sulluvan, Sarah Wilson and Jocelyn Davis joined approximately 160 other high school students at the Rotary Youth Leadership
Awards (RYLA) held on September 20th at Camp Nakanawa in Crossville, TN. Attendees were selected from across middle Tennessee based on proven leadership ability.
RYLA, a Rotary sponsored event, helps young adults discover their true potential and develop the skills needed to be leaders in their schools, communities, and in everyday life.
The Sparta Rotary Club would like to commend these students on the excellent job they did representing our community!
3rd Grade Dictionary Project
Every year for the past 8 years, the Sparta Rotary Club under the leadership of Rotarian Don Randolph who has headed the project, has provided dictionaries to all 3rd graders in the White County school district, to include interested home schooled children. Pictured below are some of Rotarians at the schools where they delivered the dictionaries.
Rotary Youth Exchange Students 2014
ThThis year the Rotary District 6780 youth exchange is hosting students (4 boys and 3 girls) from Germany, Brazil, Chile, France, Spain, Taiwan, and Italy. These students will enhance the lives of the people they meet and interact with, and will give us all an opportunity to understand the languages, and cultures of other countries, as will they. Truely broadening the world community.
In the early afternoon of April 23, 2014 a call came in on 911 that two
kayakers were in trouble on the Calf Killer River near the old Sparta water plant. Rescue workers from the Sparta-White County Rescue Squad, the Sparta Fire Department, the Tennessee Wildlife
Resource Agency and the Sparta Police department immediately responded to the call.
Two of these rescue workers ended up in the icy river that day in a valiant effort to save the lives of two men they did not know.
The Rotary Club of Sparta recently recognized Officer David Grissom and Rescue Squad Member Zachary Cunningham for exemplifying “Service above Self” in a way that few of us will ever be called upon to do.
On behalf of the Sparta Rotary Club and our community, thank you gentlemen for all that you do.
