William Wright was born in Lansing, Michigan, but grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida. He met his wife Debbie in study hall at Northeast High School. They have been happily married for thirty years and have four married children, Jarrod, Amy, Sarah, and Andrea. They have blessed him with seven grandchildren, or as he likes to say "seven excuses for his wife to leave him."
Beginning at his father's bench at age fifteen, Bill has been working in the field of prosthetics. He received his certification in 1971 from Delgado in New Orleans. After he officially retired two years ago Bill started a new business as a home inspector. This new endeavor allows him to be his own boss, helps him keep in touch with the happenings in Volusia County and gets him out of Debbie's hair a couple of days a week.
Since 2002 Bill has been a Rotarian. Not just a member, but an active member. His initiation began with the DeLand Luncheon Rotary where he was one of four Rotarians that started the Dictionary Project and Bowling for Literacy. Bill also started the DeLand High School Interact Club and hosted three Rotary Youth Exchange students!
Bill has since served in six other Rotary Clubs. He also started the Dictionary Project in the Rotary Club of Hoover, Alabama, and in the Rotary Club of Winter Park, Florida. While a member of Winter Park Rotary, Bill started  a relationship with Kilarney Elementary School and began the Weekend Backpack Program that supplied food for children that might not get a weekend meal. He carried that program to the Rotary Club of Cape Henry in Virginia Beach, Virginia. From the Rotary Club of Richland, Pennsylvania Bill brought us Adopt-a-Road.
In all Bill has served in eight Rotary Clubs. He has been the recipient of two Paul Harris Fellow Awards and three Rotarian of the Year Awards. Bill looks forward to serving the Rotary Club of DeBary-Deltona-Orange City as President, improving our communities, and growing with the Club.

Erika Benfield at VFW Auxiliary Post 8093. Erika said that with great honor we greeted honorably discharged veterans alongside our Governor Rick Scott, - Governor's Service Medal, thanking them for their service.
Our troop is only 5 years old so not much of a history. But what history we have is a lifetime for some scouts. We have a Facebook page.

As the tree is bent so does it grow.
How easier it is to bend a young sprout than a full grown oak.
Erika Benfield says on her Facebook page that her "aha" moment was when a young lady spoke about her experience with Rotary. This young lady was sponsored to attend RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards) in 1999 by our club. She is a Rotarian and Executive Director of RYLA today! Debra and Joe were also there.
Our Club is paying for four students and Florida Hospital is funding two more students. - Thank You Florida Hospital-Fish Memorial.
This is a great opportunity for a student to be selected to attend RYLA from June 24 - July at Stetson University. The students attend University High School, Deltona High School, Trinity Christian Academy, and Pine Ridge High School. Florida Hospital funded two more students who attend the Health Academy at Pine Ridge High School.
This is the friendliest Rotary Club in the area ....
and soon female Rotarians will out-number the men
so if you want to serve your community and have fun, join this Club.

Why consider membership in any Rotary Club?

With a global network of over 1.3 million community volunteers, Rotary members are business, professional, and community leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards, and help build goodwill and peace in the world.  Over 33,000 local Rotary clubs worldwide in more than 200 countries and geographical areas initiate service projects to address today’s challenges, including illiteracy, disease, hunger, poverty, lack of clean water, and environmental concerns. Rotary International’s major initiative is PolioPlus, an ambitious program to immunize the world’s children against polio in partnership with the Gates Foundation, World Health Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and UNICEF.  Rotary’s motto is “Service Above Self.”  

We invite you to become a member of The Rotary Club of DeBary-Deltona-Orange City if you live or work in these cities, or surroundings communities. Besides supporting Rotary International's service projects and District 6970's service projects we have our own projects which benefit the students and residents of the Cities of DeBary, Deltona, and Orange City. You will meet great members in our club and make new, long-lasting friendships - and have fun!
