Club Stories
 
 
President-Elect Bob Brewer, President Nominee Marshall Bolton and Treasurer-Elect David Stephenson attended the District 7600 Training Assembly on Saturday, April 23rd at the Peninsula Workforce Development Center at Thomas Nelson College in Hampton. Club leadership for 2017 - 2017 from across the district met to receive training on their upcoming duties and on the DAcdb website.  The keynote speaker was RI Director Elect Joe Mulkerrin speaking on "It's a greater time to be a great Rotarian". Information was shared by various  speakers on the Rotary 2016 - 2017 theme, Polio Plus baseball games, Rotary Foundation, membership, youth services, and the District conference.
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
Churchland Rotarians turned out on Saturday, March 12th to package meals to send to countries where the population is in dire need of nourishing food. These food packets are sent to schools in an effort  to accomplish two things. First, to provide nourishing meals to the school children, and second, to draw children to school to educate them. Without the provision of food for the children, many cannot attend school because they have to either work, or beg, or scavenge for food for themselves and their families to survive on. Obviously, the more education they are able to receive, the better their lives and the lives of their fellow countrymen will be.
 
In addition to providing volunteers to package meals, the Rotary Club of Churchland donated $2,500 toward this worthwhile project. In approximately two and one-half hours volunteers were able to package 29,000 meals and pack them in boxes ready for shipping. Our sincere thanks to Ebenezer United Methodist Church in Suffolk for hosting this event.  What a great way to perform a "Service Above Self".
Thanks to all who participated!

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!
