GoodSearch / dailygood WORKS!

Here's a great way to benefit the Rotary Club of Inverness while you're conducting normal internet business. Use dailygood (also known as Goodsearch) for your default search engine or for online buying. This site gives half its advertiser-earned revenue to charitable causes.


The Rotary Club of Inverness (our charitable foundation) is a registered charity on the site. Go to www.GoodSearch.com or www.dailygood.com and make our Rotary club your charity of choice! Then use GoodSearch's search engine [powered by Yahoo] for your web searches every day.


We get an estimated penny per search, which can really add up for our charitable funds. In addition, we can get a percentage of every purchase you make with participating retailers when you use goodshop or gooddining -- so many ways to help raise funds while you're going about your normal business. Get started today!


We had a beatutiful Saturday for the inaugural

Rotary Club of Inverness Highland Craft Brew Fest!

Thanks to all the brewers, sponsors, donors, vendors, volunteers and attendees. We really appreciate you! We were able to raise $16,158 for our charitable giving and to fund scholarships.


Thanks especially to our sponsors.

We had in-kind contributions from 

Blue Water Drafting, the Citrus County Chronicle,

Citrus 95.3, and 96.7 the Fox.


Our other sponsors include Apopka Marine; Lora L. Wilson, PL, Attorney at Law; Plantation on Crystal River; State Farm; and Nick Nicholas Ford Lincoln.




 Our 2016-17 grant project in Whispering Pines Park

This year's project won't be seen by most of the thousands of people who use Whispering Pines Park, but those who do see it will appreciate it greatly. This year we refurbished the decades-old Scout camping area facilities. The project included putting a new roof and skylights on the restroom building, having upgraded plumbing fixures installed [that meet code & ADA requirements], plus painting the restroom building and the nearby pavilion inside and out. The site has no electricity, so we're sure users will appreciate the solar-powered flood lights and on-demand lights inside the restroom building. We also installed wooden fencing at the parking area.


The Rotary Club of Inverness thanks City project manager Ron Hodges and other City staff for assistance, plus all the Rotarians, Interact students, RYE youth, Boy Scouts of Troop 457, friends and family who helped make this project a success. We are pleased to play an important part in beautifying and improving the functionality of Whispering Pines Park.
