The LaGrange Sunrise Rotary Club recently honored three Seniors; Julia Dunn, Nina Gomez and Helena Lent with scholarships to help them pursue their college dreams.   They are all 2020 graduates of Arlington High School.  Julia is planning to attend Mt Saint Mary beginning this fall, majoring in Nursing, Nina plans to pursue her education at the University of Buffalo where she plans to major in Engineering and Helena plans to attend Carnegie Mellon University where she plans to major in Music performance.  All three students exemplify our Rotary moto; "Service Above Self", focusing on how to to make this world a better place by supporting the communities in which they live.  Even during this last several months with the COVID-19 issue front and center, they have all spent time supporting their community.  It is truly refreshing to see young people passionate about Community Service and just hoping to make a difference in the lives of others. 

Our congratulations go out to Julia, Nina and Helena for their accomplishments and best wishes for a successful year!  

Happy Birthday:
Mike Harvey - July 11th

William "Bill" T. Reilly

On May 19th, 2020, William "Bill" T. Reilly, born on July 12, 1936, was welcomed home to Heaven. He was born in Poughkeepsie, NY to the late William T. Reilly, Sr. and Clara Everett. His brother, Bernard, is deceased, he is survived by his sister, Mary Miller, his wife of 60 years Ann Marie, his daughter Cynthia, his son William Patrick (Cathy), daughter Loretta, daughter Crystal (Greg). His eight grandchildren: Shannon, Courtney (Chris), Sean (Marissa), Reilly (Jourdain), McKenzie, Braedon, Grant and Jade and one great grandson, Islan.

Bill served in the Army and was very patriotic. He had his own home building business, Reilly Homes, for over 40 years. He was an outstanding athlete. He pitched softball, bowled, played racquetball, tennis, horseshoes, snowmobiling. He had a very competitive spirit. He was a member of the Rotary Club for over 30 years, and accomplished many community projects. He loved to hunt and fish and was a life member of the Mid-County Rod & Gun Club.

He was a Lector at Regina Coeli Church in Hyde Park until he moved to Weston, Florida in December 2018. His last words were "I want to go home"....and so he did. He is now one of God's most respected Angels as he lived his life to serve. He will be greatly missed by his family and all who loved him.

A celebration of life with be held a future date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Catholic Hospice, 14875 NW 77th Avenue, Miami Lakes, Florida 33014.
