Daybreak Rotarians collect retired beds from Hunt Regional Hospital and deliver them to local patients who may not be able to afford them.  This weekend 12 more beds were taken to storage, awaiting their new home.
 
    
Many hospital beds have been delivered to families in need.  We have more coming and will be able to deliver those to more people in need - VERY exciting!

OUR HISTORY

The Greenville DayBreak Provisional Rotary Club held its first meeting on February 7, 1992.  This Club was the vision of then District 5810 Governor Forrest W. Moore (1931-1996), Greenville Rotary Club President, Ken Hart and the First DayBreak Club President, Pete Smith.  The Club flourished and was chartered on October 30, 1992 as Club #29022.

The club boasts of six remaining charter  members out of the original twenty-eight.Of these six members (Randy Daw, Kelley Fincher, Holly Gotcher, Beverly Loss, John Reynolds, and Barry Robinson), one charter members (Beverly Loss) has maintained perfect attendance for all the years the club has been in existence.

At the District Level, the club consistently receives "The Presidential Citation".  District Awards have gone to the following Club Members:  Barry Paris, awarded Ethics Rotarian, Houston Baker Sr., awarded Rotary Foundation Rotarian and Barry Robinson, awarded International Service Rotarian.

COUNTLESS VOLUNTEER HOURS IN OUR COMMUNITY

Greenville Daybreak Rotary Club not only supports local nonprofit organizations, we volunteer our time and talents, too.  Through club community service projects, members have painted and repaired houses, worked on community clean-up events, delivered wheel chairs to crippled children in Mexico, taught career-building skills to high school students,  tutored elemenatary students, packed back-to-school backpacks for children, worked in the food distribution program for Hunt County Shared Ministries, and helped ring the bell for the Salvation Army.

Our members take the Rotary credo of “Service Above Self” as a model for life outside our club. They serve in leadership positions on many community nonprofit boards and give additional volunteer time on many projects.  Our community is better thanks to the efforts of Daybreak Rotary members.   

OUR FLAG PROGRAM

Six times a year, the streets around Greenville are decorated with a beautiful display of American flags, thanks to Daybreak Rotary’s Flag Project.  The principal fund-raiser for our club, local homeowners and businesses subscribe to the service and on flag-waving holidays between Presidents’ Day and Veterans Day, we set out over 700 flags.
Money raised from this project funds the many projects and community organizations we support.  Our flag program started in 2003 has supported a large number of local and international projects.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
