Steve Colwell entertained the Club with the 29+ year history of Centre Street's iconic Fantastic Fudge.   Fernandina's sweet shop has roots reaching all the way to Petosky, Michigan - and Steve's teen years working for a fudge shop there.  He shared a number of great stories of how Fantastic Fudge began - the sweat, hard work, and fun - and how the business has grown over the years, now employing a few dozen local teenagers on any given summer day.  The most humorous moment - when Steve recognized Wally Messer and said..... "Hey.....! Rum Raisin!"    A gracious "Thank You!" for helping Fernandina Beach keep that small town feel!
Be sure to stop by for some Holiday treats!

October 24th is World Polio Day. We can be the ones who raise the dollar that ends this dread disease. The Rotary Club of Fernandina Beach will be observing World Polio Day by collecting and donating funds to the End Polio Now campaign administered by Rotary International. Every penny counts.


Rotary International is rated 4-4 stars on Charity Navigator, with a score of 97.78 / 100, meaning the vast majority of your donations to End Polio Now actually make it into the fight. Additionally, every dollar donated to the End Polio Now campaign is being matched 2-1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. One dose of the oral polio vaccine costs between $0.10 - $0.13, meaning your dollar, matched, could buy up to 300 doses of the lifesaving treatment out in the field.
