A huge THANK YOU to everyone in the community that donated to our Purse Project. We have over 250 purses to donate to women in need! WWAY-TV was there to report on the event: https://www.wwaytv3.com/wilmington-non-profit-work-to-bring-smile-to-unsheltered-women/


Flamingos for a Cause.
Honor a friend, remember a loved one, create a tribute.

Wilmington Central Rotary created a sea of Flamingos on display at the front lawn of Strickland’s during the months of February/March.

Flamingos are “In Memory or In Honor” of someone special. 100% of the proceeds went to support two projects of Surfers Healing, non-profits doing great work in our community.

The mission of Surfers Healing is to enrich the lives of people living with autism by exposing them to the unique experience of surfing. Surfers Healing is the original surf camp for children with autism and offer all camps free of charge.

Wilmington Central Rotary plans to purchase:

  1. 9-foot feather flags. These are used to mark our safety zone camp. The safety zone is where are surfers can safely take our children with autism surfing. Areas outside of the two safety flags are safe swim zones as families wait for their surf time. We will purchase 4 flags for the surf zone.
  2. 10×10 EZ Up Encore tents. Their tents have come to the end of their life and could also be considered a safety hazard.

Miracles of Rotary 2021

On December 17th Rotarians and community leaders will be locked up at Strickland’s on Oleander drive. The jailbirds have to raise money to get the keys to freedom. Money raised will go to Josie Godwin who needs help purchasing a prosthetic leg and will help fund the building of the supply store at Eden Village – a home for homeless folks.
