East    Welcome to our Website!

The Rotary International Theme for the 2014-2015 year is “Light Up Rotary.”  We are excited about the new Rotary Year. Our Directors, Officers, Committee Chairs and Members, and membership have committed our club to another year of “Service Above Self.”  Our program of work will consist of starting a Student Dictionary Project for all third grade students in the Dublin-Laurens County school systems along with Trinity Christian School.  Our club would like to begin reaching out to young school children to raise awareness of the importance of Rotary, and how it benefits people all over the world.  Also, our club will continue to support the Polio Plus Project along with our partners around the world in Malawi, Africa where we will be building and repairing water wells to improve the quality of life for those who live there.

A few select service projects for the year include GED and literacy efforts such as “Mrs. Claus Reads,” and support of our Rotaract and Interact Clubs and Laurens Youth Leadership Program.  We will recognize outstanding local high school students with our Student of the Quarter awards and through the awarding of our annual Davis-Hilburn Scholarship.  We are again sponsoring a student in the Georgia Rotary Student Program (GRSP) and are in cooperation with the Milledgeville Rotary Club in a joint sponsorship of Thomas Mogelberg from Denmark, who will be our student.  

The Rotary District 6920 Governor for this year is Ted Thompson of the Sandersville Rotary Club.  Our Assistant Governor is Past President of Dublin Rotary Club, Helen Harper.  Our District Trainer is Past President Frank Seaton of the Dublin Rotary Club.

We invite all Rotarians and those who are interested in joining Rotary to visit one of our weekly meetings on Fridays at the Dublin Country Club.  We begin with a meal at Noon followed by the program at 12:30.

Thank you for visiting our website!


Yours in Rotary,

Robert (Bubba) L. East, Jr.

2014-2015 Club president
