January 18 – Club News
Posted By Brad Walker
The Rotary Club of Wake Forest met on Monday, Jan.18, to celebrate Martin Luther King’s birthday virtually as well as in person at The Forks Cafeteria in downtown Wake Forest. President Karlene Turrentine opened the 7 p.m. meeting with the pledge, followed by a prayer from Rev. Enoch Holloway. She noted that observing Dr. King’s legacy of peace is even more meaningful this year alongside Rotary’s Peace Initiative.
Prior to the meeting’s opening, members and guests enjoyed a cappella singing of Civil Rights era songs, such as “We Shall Overcome” and “We Shall Not Be Moved” by Friendship Chapel Baptist Church singers Rev. Holloway, his brother Edwin Holloway, and Leon Harris. Other guests recognized included Leona, Juda and Andre Turrentine, Ann and Bob Lee, Rachel Morris (president of the Rotary Club of Rolesville), Christy Colbank, and Selene Santiago, Wake Forest Rotary’s 2018 Scholarship Recipient now attending UNC-G.
- Bob McCamy thanked the Friendship Chapel Baptist Church singers for their musical program before the meeting.
- Karlene likewise expressed appreciation for the music and the many guests, along with Rev. Ken Steigler for giving the night’s program, Bob for his birthday, and Rachel Morris for serving as the Rolesville Club president.
- Brad Walker expressed his thanks for Hope House with a donation, as did several other members.
- Dee Skinner welcomed all guests and thanked the musical trio for their inspiring sounds.
Rotarians Rev. Enoch Holloway and Dr. Marion Holloway were both honored with the Paul Harris Fellow Awards presented by the Rotary Club of Wake Forest for their long-standing commitment of service to the Wake Forest community. Rev. Enoch pastors Friendship Chapel Baptist Church which sponsors Hope House, Inc., an outreach mission in Northeast Wake Forest, and Dr. Marion works with it all!
