Welcome to the Georgetown-Millsboro Rotary Club's website. We are located in the center of Sussex County, Delaware in the heart of the DelMarVa Peninsula. This area is known as Lower, Slower Delaware and we are happy to live and work here.
Please join us any Tuesday at noon. We meet in Tunnell Hall of the Georgetown Presbyterian Church, 203 North Bedford Street, just two blocks north of "The Circle."
Please click on the Speakers page for a list of recent and upcoming speakers and topics. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Dan Tabler, President
We do our best to avoid scheduling conflicts but sometimes it's unavoidable. There are three activities scheduled on Sept. 17th. Please try to participate in at least one of them.
There is a lot happening with our club this fall. All members are urged to help whenever possible.
We will again have a Flags for Heroes booth at the Boro Bash on September 17th. Lin Faucett is coordinating our volunteers. We need two people for a two-hour shift between 11am and 7pm. Please volunteer for a shift.
Ross Mansion Grant
We are partnering with the Nanticoke-Seaford Rotary Club on a District grant that will provide an educational exhibit related to textiles in the Slave Quarters. A work day is planned for Saturday, September 17th. For members who have volunteered at Camp Fairlee, this will be a similar activity. Work to be done and other details to follow. Shannon Wright is coordinating this project.
Our Fun Committee, led by Alice Erdly, is planning a September family picnic. It will be on Saturday, September 17th/6pm at Ross Mansion to coincide with the work day there. Members are encouraged to participate in both activities but are welcome to do one or the other. Details coming soon.
Wings and Wheels
We will again have a Flags for Heroes booth at Wings and Wheels at the Sussex County Airport on Saturday, October 1st. We need someone to coordinate this activity and volunteers to staff the booth for a two-hour shift throughout the day.
This is a project we have done in the past but not in recent years. Our section of road to clean at least three times a year is Rt. 113 from Kruger Road to Governor Stockely Road, approximately two miles. Chis Wolfe is coordinating this project. The first clean-up is scheduled for Saturday, October 22nd.

DG Clif made his official visit on August 9th. This meeting was held at the Brick Hotel where the club first met in 1926. DG Clif shared his goals for the year that included engaging every member in club activities, working more closely with community groups and other Rotary clubs and making Rotary FUN! Area 41 AG Jack Riddle introduced DG Clif.

Thanks to the many businesses, organizations and indivudals who sponsored 425 flags. A special thanks to our top five sponsorship sellers Charlene Hubert, Helen Kruger, Randy Cash, Harriet Windsor and Stephen Kasperski.
Nearly 700 flags were displayed on The Circle, at DTCC and two Millsboro locations and were as spectacular as ever. Thanks to Bill Purnell for chairing our Flags for Heroes 2016 project. Thanks to Lin Faucett and his crew for installing the flags at the DTCC and Millsboro locations and to the Georgetown employees for installing the flags on The Circle.
The proceeds from this project are returned to the community in the form of scholarships, grants and numerous other club projects.
