Service Above Self!

The Early Years[edit]

The Rotary Club of Winter Springs is a member of Rotary International. District 6980 is composed of clubs in the five counties of Central Florida. The Winter Springs club was chartered on May 24, 1984.

Societal Contributions[edit]

Rotary has maintained it's strength over the years by concentrating efforts on issues that are relevant to communities around the world; such as, literacy, peace, education, and health.

Community Service[edit]

  • Pathways to Care--The Rotary Club of Winter Springs lead by Rotarian Harry Arthur feeds the residents of Pathways to Care on the first Sunday of every month.We start at 6:00 am to prepare breakfast for the 40 +- residents. After serving breakfast we clean up and start on preparing lunch. Once lunch is served and cleaned up we prepare dinner, which is usually a light meal, soup and sandwiches.
  • Keeth Rotary Run--The Rotary Club of Winter Springs lead by Rotarian Tim Seibert host the annual Keeth Rotary Run which is held at Keeth Elementary School in Winter Springs.

International Service[edit]

  • Ukraine Orphanage Project Chereshenskiy Internat--2009-2010 Rotary International project with the Rotary Club of Chernigov Ukraine. This International humanitarian project will not only improve children's health but also their future. The project has two components which both directly impact the children of Chereshenskiy Orphanage. The first part addresses health and environmental issues, the second focuses on education. Hazardous septic waste will no longer pollute the river and drinking water supply. The entire community and ultimately our world will benefit from a clean water supply.

The community is strengthened by providing higher education to its residents. The trade school program at the orphanage will be available at no charge to all children over 16 years of age living in the surrounding community. This is especially important because these local children are often taking care of their families and farms and do not have an opportunity or money to go to the city to attend a trade school.

  • Ukraine Orphanage Project Krasny Khutor Internat--The Rotary project at Krasny Khutor orphanage was completed February 2009. Building toilet and shower facilities.

Youth Services[edit]


  • Winter Springs High School Interact Club
  • Rollins College Rotaract Club
  • The University of Central Florida Rotaract Club
  • Seminole State College Rotaract Club

Rotary Fishing Tournament--The Rotary Club of Winter Springs lead by Rotarian Mark Sardo hosted a wonderful fishing event for the youth of our community. The small lake at Trotwood Park was stocked with hundreds of fish a week before the big day. Watch this video, to see how our tournament turned out.
