When I was leaving the Mayo Clinic Jacksonville a few weeks ago I ran into Mark Van Fleet and Ruth Swanto. They both were active in Rotary for many years. Ruth was our Club President for the 1995-1996 Rotary Year. They say Hello to you all. (All Past Presidents can be viewed on the right side of our website.)

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!

YOUR Rotary Foundation

District 6970 is #1 in the WORLD for Polio Giving of DDF (District Designated Funds)

FEBRUARY 15, 2019 - Lunch with RI President Barry Rassin
Rotary International President Barry is coming to D6970 to celebrate your generosity. 

Paul Harris Fellow Challenge - Day of 1,000 Paul Harris Fellows.  To show our appreciation to President Barry and all the good that The Rotary Foundation does in the world, your District Foundation Team is challenging each of you to increase your Foundation giving so we can do even MORE GOOD IN THE WORLD!

If you are not already a Paul Harris Fellow, talk to your Club Foundation Chair, President or Assistant Governor about how to become one.  If you are already a PHF, let's move up to that next level of giving, and/or become a member of the Bequest Society.  Let's get creative and work together to make this happen!

How awesome would it be to recognize 1,000 Rotarians form around our great District during President Barry's visit in February?  We CAN do it! 

Please share your club's success story including strategy and results by Aug 20th
Diane was our second female Club President. I didn't realize she passed away a few months ago at a young age until I spoke to Past President Brad Tallman. She was a wonderful person. Diane was a  pioneer in Volusia County as the Clerk of the Circuit Court.
