North Pinellas Club News for July 31

Every year, Sertoma clubs throughout America, Mexico, Canada and the Caribbean recognize an outstanding club member with the Sertoman of the Year Award for exceptional contributions to the club and in the spirit of service to mankind. They also honor a non-Sertoman with the Service to Mankind Award based on the amount of volunteer service provided to the community.

The Clearwater All American Sertoma Club presented its Sertoman of the Year Award to Debbie Huffer, the club's secretary and treasurer. In addition to fulfilling the duties for which she was elected, Huffer also volunteered as a Salvation Army bell ringer, processed school-age children at the club's annual health fair and served as chairman for the club's annual gathering and for many other events in which the club was involved.

This year the club presented its Service to Mankind Award to former Clearwater Mayor Brian Aungst for his leadership, dedication and involvement in local affairs as well as his sacrifice of private time for the sake of his community. Huffer and Aungst received plaques presented by Don Olson, the club's director of awards.

Dunedin's Rotary clubs joined forces this year to provide $5,500 in scholarship funds for Dunedin Fine Art Center's Summer Art Academy.

Because Dunedin Rotary, Dunedin Rotary North and Dunedin Rotary Waterside combined their contributions, they were eligible for a matching grant from the Rotary District.

"This was just a no-brainer," said Chuck Dean, president of Dunedin Rotary. "We were all able to contribute to this incredible program in our community and leverage some funds on the district level as well."

Rotary's donation allowed 28 children to attend a total of 44 weeks of fun, educational and enriching art experiences at DFAC this summer.
