UNF Rotaract once again participated in Relay4Life, where we had at least one member from our team walking around the track at UNF Coxwell Amphitheater for 12 hours!!! This year’s theme was Disney, so of course we had a blast decorating and choosing our theme! For Rotaract, we chose “Tangled” as our Disney movie theme and for our product to sell and raise funds for cancer funding and research, we decided to make some delicious pancakes with chocolate milk. It was an absolute blast and we can’t wait for next year!!
We welcomed all our Rotaractors back in the New Year at our first general meeting for the Spring 2015 semester! We had a lot of great announcements, including our announcing our new President Elect, Silvia Posse, who has been involved with UNF Rotaract since her enrollment at UNF. We also announced that Abbie Bernet, a dedicated Rotaract member who has a strong and dedicated relationship with Rotary, will be taking Silvia’s place as Vice President for the Spring 2o15 semester. Congratulations Abbie and Silvia!
We also discussed some of our community events that we are working on including another trip to Habijax, Angels for Allison, Fall Bake Sale, Tutoring, and Stop Hunger Now. More information will be posted as these event dates are set.
Our biggest international event is coming up and that is the Students Art Market (SAM), where this year all the money we raise from the event will go to Alenah’s Home, an orphanage in China dedicated to taking care of the numerous kids housed there struggling with disabilities. The event will be in March, and more information can be found under the S.A.M tab above.
We can’t wait to see what the New Year and new semester has in store for us! Happy New Year everyone!
Here’s a look at some of our upcoming events to look forward to!
