Club Assembly 2022 Community Committee Report
Supporting community events
On Saturday 6 August we will be supporting the Southwell Bash with our marshalling skills. Volunteers needed please.
B-Side Festival: B-side is an annual event on the island which showcases local and national artists. We look forward to working with B-Side to plan the 2022 event.
We shall be awarding our Community Award at Handover om 31 July 2022.
Nominations will be sought from the Portland community in recognition of those who have ‘gone the extra mile’ to support others.
Tabletop Sales Each month our club hold a Table Top Sale at the Community 2000 centre in Easton. Tables are available to local organisations for a small fee so that they may raise their own funds. Portland Rotary donate a portion of the proceeds to a nominated local organisation or group.
Community Forum: Island Community Action (ICA) have developed a Community
Forum to bring together island community groups working in partnership. We are keen to support this initiative and look forward to being involved: https://firstname.lastname@example.org
Friends of Rotary: We are fortunate enough to have 12 Friends of Rotary who support us in all manner of ways throughout the year. They are a vital part of our Rotary Club, enabling us to support our community.
We are planning a Quiz fundraising evening late February/early March to raise
funds for our Community Pot. We are lucky enough to have our very own quiz
master, Dave Beharry, and we are currently looking at potential venues.
Christmastime is always a busy time of year for our Rotary Club, starting
with the lighting up of the trees around the island. Santa and his team of
elves take part in a number of fundraising events such as the Easton
Sparkle on their sleigh, touring the island on the sleigh over a number of
evenings, and Christmas Day deliveries, raising funds for Rotary which will
go back into the community.
