Service Above Self!

Orlando Dragons Banner

The Early Years[edit]

The Rotary Club of Orlando Dragons is a member of Rotary International. District 6980 is composed of clubs in the Central Florida, USA in Zone 34. The goal is to leverage the service strength of Orlando's Mandarin Chinese speaking community in the philosophy of Rotary's Service Above Self.


The concept of the club formulated when Rotary International President Gary CK Huang visited the district on March 13, 2015. A preliminary organizational meeting was held March 31, 2015 with recruits, Governor Jo Weber, and Governor Nominee Dan Semenza. On April 22, the Doctor Phillips club's president, John Winemilller, presented the funds to sponsor the members of the chartering members, new member kits, the bell and gavel, club banner, and Four-Way Test Banner.

Provisional Charter Membership was declared by DG Jo Weber on 24 April 2015 including members: Rotarian Jim Beyer, Sue Brown, Kenny Chang, Hsien Mei Chen, Mary Chen, Lucy Fender, Jiashun Huang, PHF +1 former Rotarian Bo-Yu Lao, Jennie Lee, Hong Can Lin, Dr Meng Liu, Jimmy Liu, Bob Lynch, Lisa Lynch, Rotarian Dr Phyllis M Olmstead, Rotarian Rachel Siu, Yuqing Tang, Peter Wang, Tony Wang, Christina Wong, Rick Xi, Eddie Yeh, Philip Zhao, Chung Ying Zheng, Jessica Zhu, and Michael Zhu.
