The return of Spring Obsession was certainly a triumphant one! Under bright and sunny skies, our club facilitated an event on March 13, 2021 where more than 70 vendors served a happy crowd of 4,000 or more guests in fulfilling all of their gardening dreams. Guests were also delighted to win raffle prizes donated by 34 different local businesses. When the final numbers are in, it is predicted the event will have raised $20,000 or more for purchasing AED equipment to be placed in City of Lakeland law enforcement vehicles.
Big thanks to the event sponsors: Hillcrest Partners, Pre-Con Construction, Publix Super Markets Charities, Allen & Company, Keiser University, Heath Funeral Chapel, Boring Systems, Auto Owners Insurance, Chase & Chase Investments, CPS Investment Advisors, Kimley-Horn, T. Mims Corp., Ginny Harris, CPA, and The Ruthvens.
Congratulations to Chair Matt Schichtel, co-chair Melody Rider, and the entire Spring Obsession committee!

Continuing to adapt as required by our community's response to the global pandemic, The Lakeland Rotary Club is moving forward with two of its signature efforts to raise funds in support of local law enforcement and parks.

Our annual Twilight 5K has been converted to a shirt sale. Click the link in the blue bar above to buy a shirt or have your name listed as a sponsor.

Our annual Spring Obsession event will take place at Lake Crago Park on March 13. The park will be filled with physically distanced vendors selling beautiful plants and garden art...all are welcome! Funds generated by the event will go to purchase AED equipment for the Lakeland Police Department.

The Lakeland Rotary Club was proud to present a check for $50,000 to Bonnet Springs Park, to be designated for two huge slides on the Great Lawn area. 
The gift was from proceeds from our annual event, Spring Obsession.  Our special thanks is extended to all the sponsors for Spring Obsession and to each Rotarian who generously supported this event. See the sponsor list here.
