TITUSVILLE - The Titusville Sunrise Rotary Club recently hosted Scavenger Hunt 2 to help raise funds for local community service projects such as Josh the Baby Otter. Hunters were greeted by Josh the Otter, a costumed Rotarian that spreads the word about water safety. The Titusville Sunrise Rotary Club, along with Josh, will soon be visiting kindergarten students in North Brevard to educate them about "being safe around water." Club members will read the Josh the Baby Otter book to the class and present each child with their own copy. The program "...has and will continue to save countless children's lives."

Scavenger Hunt Teams were given a list of over 30 clues that directed them to locations in and around Titusville. Upon arriving at a Hunt location, the teams took a photo of their entire team in front of a specific item at the site. The teams had 2 hours to solve as many clues as possible and were awarded points for each correct and complete photograph. Upon returning, team photographs were reviewed and points were awarded for correct/complete photos. The team with the most points was declared the winner and received $200 in cash. In addition, each team member received a large magnifying glass to help them in future Hunts!

Many thanks to the local businesses and individuals that supported SH2 through their generous sponsorships. Special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Dixie Crossroads, for serving as the start/end point of the Hunt as well as providing refreshments for the hunters. "Chief Detective Sponsors" included Lisa Mosier of Coldwell Banker Coast Realty and Randall Coleman from Merrill Lynch/Bank of America Corporation. Detective Sponsors were: Aja Salon & Day Spa, Aqua-Mart, Fraser & Connelly Accounting Services, Fidelity National Title of Florida, Inc., La Cita Country Club, North Brevard Funeral Home, North Brevard Tires, Shamrock & Thistle Pub and Sunrise Animal Hospital.

Titusville - The Titusville Sunrise Rotary Club recently installed their 2012-13 club officers during a dinner meeting at Pumpernickel's Fest Haus.

Els van Engelenburg was sworn in as President, Kate Chiodini as President-Elect, John King, Secretary, Anne Fraser, Treasurer, Jack Griesbaum, Sergeant-at-Arms and Jo Lynn Nelson as Rotary Foundation Chair.

In addition to recognizing outgoing officers, the evening included a review of the year's accomplishments and a look ahead to the coming year. The dinner also provided an opportunity to honor the club-selected Rotarian of the Year. Club member Matt Barringer was honored for his service efforts during the past year.

President van Engelenburg thanked the club members for their efforts and introduced the Rotary International theme for 2012-13, "Peace Through Service," as designated by Rotary International President Sakuji Tanaka. The 1.2 million Rotarians in over 34,000 clubs worldwide will be guided by this theme for the coming year.

Titusville ?After hearing about the continued need for school supplies at local schools, the members of the Titusville Sunrise Rotary Club contacted the Brevard County School Board to see how they could help. The club members were directed to Mims and Pinewood Elementary Schools and received "wish lists" from each of the schools.

Club President Father Richard Pobjecky happily announced that "we were fortunate to be able to fulfill most every request made by the schools." Club members Dawn Kling, Denny Meneghelli, Lisa Mosier, Bob Socks and Dan Wolfe were on hand to deliver the supplies to the schools this past Tuesday. First stop, Pinewood Elementary School; Principal Donna Neill was delighted with the delivery, "Pinewood is absolutely thrilled to receive the generous donation of school supplies from the Sunrise Rotary Club!

These materials will allow our teachers to do their job more effectively as well as ensure our students have the supplies they need to perform well at school. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." The next stop was at Mims Elementary School, where Principal Debra Crannell stated "Mims Elementary staff, students and parents are so appreciative of the school supplies! Thanks to our many local clubs and businesses we are able to provide necessary supplies for students to have a successful year."
