Plant City Rotary Community Appreciation Day.
 
Our club held it's 2nd annual Community Appreciation Day on Saturday August 5th
at the Randy Larson Softball Complex on Park Road in Plant City.  This free family
event was well attended.  Participants enjoyed free food, drinks, bounce houses, rock
climbing walls and a dunk tank.  The first 500 kids were able to pick up bags of back
to school supplies.  There were demonstrations by the Plant City Police Department,
the Plant City Fire Department and the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department. 
Many other groups also participated.  Thanks to all the club members, community
members and organizations that made this event a big success.  For more photos

Dancing With The Locals 2016   
     This year's edition of the Plant City Rotary Club's Dancing With the Locals was held November 11th at the Trinkle Center on H.C.C.'s Plant City Campus.  The fundraiser, now in it's 9th year, raises money for the Plant City Rotary Foundation.  The P.C. Rotary Foundation is the non-profit arm of the Plant City Rotary Club.  Funds raised at this event and our other fundraisers go back into our community to support many worthwhile causes.  The event provides a fun evening for local residents.  They are able to enjoy good food and drink and an entertaining competition between couples from the local area, all while giving back to the community.
     Opening remarks were made by Club President Charles Harris.  Next, since this night was all about giving back to local charities, President Charles presented a check for $5000 to Mary Heysek. director of the United Food Bank of Plant City.
 
    The Hostess and Emcee for the event were Mark Cook and Casey Phillips.  Mark is a Hillsborough County native with experience in radio and print and is currently editor in chief of the Pewter Report where he covers the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a daily basis.  Casey, originally from Southlake Texas, has a history of experience in sports broadcasting and is currently the team insider for the Tampa  Bay Buccaneers.

  Judges for this year's event included Edwena Haney of Hopewell Funeral Home, Paul Davis of the Florida Strawberry Festival and  Kelly Davis, a hair and makeup stylist who is also a nationally registered talent and pageant judge.  The fourth judge was selected that night by auction.  Audience members were invited to bid on the right to be the fourth judge for the event.  The winning bid was offered by Darry Dykstra of Dykstra Construciton.  Darry and his wife Heather, were the winning couple in the 2015 Dancing With The Locals competition.     
 
S4TL is a leadership training program for high school students. It is organized annually by Rotarian senior staff from Districts 6890, 6950 and 6960 in mid-Florida. This award-winning program is capable of transforming the lives of these young leaders.  Each Rotary club in the three districts may sponsor a delegate to the sessions
One unique feature of S4TL is the "rap sessions" where the leaders of tomorrow are divided into groups of 16-18 delegates. They meet with Rotarians to discuss topics of interest to them. No holds are barred, and both groups learn from one another.
 
Our club is proud to sponsor a local high school to attend this program each year.  This year's participant was Shelby Baerwalde.  Shelby recently attended our club meeting to talk to us regarding her experience.
