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 four remaining charter members out of the original twenty-eight.  Of these five members (Kelley Fincher, Holly Gotcher, Beverly Loss, and John Reynolds), two charter members have maintained perfect attendance for the 18 years the club has been in existence.  (Beverly J. Loss, and John Reynolds.).

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.
