About the Lewes-Rehoboth Rotary Club
The Lewes-Rehoboth Rotary Club was founded in 1929. For 92 years the Club has been making our community a better and safer place to live, work, go to school and raise a family. Through our Flags For Heroes, and other charitable programs and events, the Club has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to local charitable organizations such as these Veteran organizations and others:
- KSI (Kent & Sussex Industries)
- St. Peter's Heart & Soul Ministry
- Community Resource Center
- Swank Memory Care Center at Christiana Care
- Historic Lewes Farmers Market
- Greater Lewes Community Village

This year's commemorative medallion
This year we are happy to feature recent Cape Henlopen High School graduate, Darryl Sykes, on our commemorative 2021 medallion. During his time at Cape, Darryl served four years in the Army’s Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC), rising to the rank of Company Commander.
JROTC’s mission is to "motivate young people to be better citizens". That motivation was obvious as Darryl battled the elements to assist our Lewes-Rehoboth Rotary Club with its flag placements on a cold fall day last year. Darryl hopes to enlist as a Private First Class in the U.S. Army, where he plans to specialize in engineering. He will be the second generation in his family to serve his country.
Our Lewes-Rehoboth Rotary Club is truly thankful for the many contributions of our community members, young and old.
