During our Charter Night Celebration, Jeff Vierrether, Rotarian of the Year 2015, had the honor of presenting the award to this year's recipient, Dennis Price. Included here are Jeff's remarks presented to the club.
 
"I often get asked, what is Rotary? And my response is that Rotary means something a little different to each of us but all Rotarians work together to achieve one common goal, to make our  world a better place, one community at time, by putting others first. This year’s Rotarian certainly is an individual that puts others first, no questions asked and does so with a comforting pat on the back.
Some of the many things this individual has done are:
Served as club Secretary
Served on and chaired the Scholarship Committee
Served on Board of Directors 
Participated in Paint Your Heart Out, the Bowl-A-Thon, Bell ringing for Salvation Army, the Churchland Elementary School Playground Project and assisted with the Rotary Bar Be Que in many fashions.
Served on the Christmas Fund Committee
Has brought the club two successful candidates for Rotary Scholars - Trey Childress and Christina DeTriquet
Retired from the Chesapeake School System after teaching for some 35 years
Has served as Director of Music at Churchland Baptist Church for 50 + years
Member of the Portsmouth Music Club
Served on the Board of Directors of Portsmouth Community Concerts
Has directed the Churchland Baptist Choir in the Annual Love Feast on Christmas Eve at Churchland Baptist Church since its inception
He is the owner of Fare Price Tours, the name matches up pretty well with our Four Way Test
And since he has so much  “free” time, he is currently teaching at Old Dominion University
This Rotarian holds a B.S, M.S. and EdD as a result of attending East Carolina University and university of Illinois.
This Rotarian is a Paul Harris Fellow Plus 2, been married for many years (celebrated more anniversaries than some of us in the room have celebrated birthdays), has two children and 5 or so grandchildren.
This Rotarian has been a member of our club since February 1, 1986 where he has so kindly and patiently been playing the piano since, drowning out our sad attempts of singing. He is also assigned and challenged with keeping Ben Wiggins in line.
He is a gentleman, Christian, good friend and a TRUE Rotarian. It is with GREAT PLEASURE  I announce Dennis Price as our Rotarian of the Year!"
 
Congratulations Dennis!

There were guests from HER Shelter, Boys & Girls Cubs of Southeast Virginia, Starbase Victory, Maryview Foundation Healthcare Clinic, EDMARC Hospice for Children, Roc Solid Foundation, Western Branch Athletic Club, Western Branch High School Interact Club, and Tidewater Community College Rotaract Club. Each guest organization has been a partner with Churchland Rotary for the betterment of our community. (Please look on our website for the photos from Charter Night 2016)
 

 
  
 
  
 
  
 
Santa came to visit us on December 22nd at our annual Christmas Breakfast. We had children, family members, good food, singing of Christmas carols, and Don Comer reading the Polar Express. Good times and great fellowship was enjoyed by all.
 

 
 
 
 
Churchland Rotary took part this holiday season in remenbering our veterans and their sacrifices for our country by contributing to the Albert G. Horton, Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery Wreath Society. Every year, the Horton Wreath Society pays tribute to fallen veterans during the holiday season by organizing wreathes and volunteers at the Albert G Horton, Jr. cemetery in Suffolk. This year they placed seven-thousand wreaths.
