News about Downtown Gainesville Rotary
The Rotary Club of Downtown Gainesville is supporting the Gainesville Opportunity Center during The Amazing Give.
Our objective is to secure funds that can be used in a District Grant. We want to help the GOC purchase a vehicle that can be used to help members access services and make meaningful progress in their lives.
Fifty cents of every dollar will be matched by our club, with our maximum club contribution at $1000.00.
Please participate, share the portal, and help make our community even stronger!
We are saddened by the passing of club member Jack Hauptman. He passed away on Saturday, February 3rd. He was admitted to hospice care last week after his situation deteriorated. Jack had been a member of the Rotary Club of Downtown Gainesville for just over 20 years, and an active Rotarian for more than 23. His wife, Marjorie will be in our thoughts and prayers.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, February 9 at 4pm at the United Church of Gainesville.
Happy New Year!
Our first Rotary Meeting of the new year comes on a cold and wet day, but we will still be there! Please be careful, warm, and safe, and we hope you can make it.
We hope that Irma's path will carry it safely into the Atlantic. If that is not the case, please keep the following in mind, from District Governor Brent Coates:

For those needing a make up meeting or to see another Rotary club: The Greater Gainesville Rotary Club now meets at Jason's Deli at the Oaks Mall Plaza on the first and third Mondays of the month.
