Wednesday’s Program Topic - William Sterbinsky, "SRQ Veterans, Fixing our backyard first."
In 2010, William met the founder of SRQ VETS, Eddie Cacciola.  Together, with a core of local veterans, they built this idea to use local resources to solve local veteran problems. Inspiring!

Feature Story
Volunteer Opportunities at Wilkinson Elementary
Our Club's "Signature Project" is our partnership with Wilkinson Elementary School.  (BTW, it is an Award Winning Signature Project, a runner up in FL District competition.) 
Chair Bill Irish and several Board members have been working with WES Principal Susan Nations, identifying ways to increase and improve our Club's support for the School.  Several things have been suggested but the one that has risen to the top is working directly with children.  The school year is now underway and rather than keeping it a secret, we thought it appropriate to publish those volunteer opportunities NOW!  
Here's your opportunity to be a superhero in the life of children at Wilkinson.  A small investment in your time produces a big impact in the education and self esteem of these kids.
Contact Kelly Watts, Volunteer Coordinator for more information (941-361-6477)
