The Rotary International Theme for the 2013-2014 year is “Engage Rotary, Change Lives.”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 ranges from celebrating our 75 years as a Rotary Club to developing a Rotary Wheel Plaza in our beautiful downtown area for our citizens to enjoy to working with our partners around the world in Malawi, Africa where we will be improving the quality of life for those who live there.
A few select service projects for the year include the continuation of building efforts in Malawi with a matching grant, GED and literacy efforts such as “Mrs. Claus Reads,” and support of our local Rotaract and Interact Clubs and the 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 Jason Cleland from Scotland, who will be our student. This will mark the second consecutive year that a student from Scotland will be with us.

Our District Director is Frank Seaton of the Dublin Rotary Club and also a Past President of our club.

Russ Falk, Rotary Member, gave a presentation on his mission trip to Cuba with Alan Bar- foot. Russ shared with us their enthusiasm for mission work and the desire to share their faith with individuals that live under a socialist government. Spiritual needs are great in a country that has a mixture of poverty, church suppression, and limited religious freedoms. Their prayer is to bring Gospelink, an organization that raises funds monthly to support pastors and churches in the poorest nations of the world, to Cuba. They are looking forward to going back and hope to have a program for youth, family ministry and pastor training when they return.
Dublin Rotary member Alan Barfoot, along with Russ Falk visited the Dublin Rotary Club sponsored projects in Malawi. Our club has been a sponsor every year since 2009. Projects included work with orphanages, installing widows and new wells, repairing wells, goats to the needy, maize mill, orphan homes and installing kitchens. Russ and Alan also go to Malawi to share the gospel, teach, carry Bibles, etc.
