This year the Woodbridge Rotary Club celebrates their 50th Anniversary of their charter. To honor their years of service the Prince William County area the Board of County Supervisors presented a Certificate of Commendation to Rotary’s President, Darcy Tilman. The Commendation was coincidentally presented on the exact date of the Club’s anniversary.
To celebrate the anniversary, Rotarians gathered for a casual picnic which was hosted at the American Legion Post 364. They were joined by Janet Brown, District Governor, Rotary District 7610. Three Firefighters and A Pig provided their amazing chili and their famous jalapeno cornbread.

Rotary International President Gary C.K. Huang chose Light Up Rotary as his theme for 2014-15. Huang is urging club members to Light Up Rotary by hosting a Rotary Day in their community, continuing our fight against polio, and increasing club membership. “Light Up Rotary is more than our theme. It is how we make a difference — every day, in every club, and every country we serve.”
