The Rotary Club of East Nassau recorded another milestone today as we hosted the first meeting with our new Early Act Club of Genesis Academy. Excitement was in the air as Faculty Advisor Cally Allen announced the new Board. Rotarian Hope Sealy quizzed more than 25 students on what they thought should be their first projects and Rotarian Llewellyn Burrows gave them a brief talk about Rotary and their role in the club. New Rotarian Advisor Kristy Kemp is scheduled to take over the lead next week as we put them on the road to success.
EarlyAct is a service club for elementary students from ages 5 to 13. A club is sponsored by one of the local Rotary clubs in the area in which the school is located. The mission and operation of EarlyAct are closely linked to the ideals of Rotary and provide the foundation and natural succession into Interact.

EarlyAct provides young students the opportunity for gaining an increased awareness and knowledge of their community and the world. At a young age, all students can easily be encouraged to be caring and helpful. Their minds are open to recognize the dignity and worth of each individual which builds respect for others.

EarlyAct also engages students in character-building activities and prepares them for leadership roles to identify and carry out projects which benefit their school, local and global communities.
