Sycamore Rotaract welcomes new president

Trenton DeVito is the new president of the Rotaract Club of Sycamore.

DeVito is a licensed insurance broker for MyInsuranceGuy in Sycamore and a student at Northern Illinois University, majoring in business administration.

His involvement in Rotary started at a young age. In grade school, DeVito was elected as the secretary of the EarlyAct Rotary Club at North Grove Elementary. Later in high school, he was elected president of his graduating class. DeVito has served six years on the board of the Fizz Ehrler Memorial Turning Back Time Car Show. He also enjoys tending to his hobby of beekeeping.

Madeline DeVito, now serving as past president and founder, passed the gavel to Trenton DeVito, who has served the past year as president elect. Also elected to the board of directors is Cole Regnery as director and president elect, Katharine Kuhn as secretary and Michael DeVito as treasurer.

The Rotaract Club of Sycamore is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Sycamore and serves as an opportunity for young professionals in the area to give back to the community through service while also building fellowship with like-minded individuals. Rotaract Club of Sycamore was founded July 1, 2020, with five members and has quickly grown to nearly 20.

The club meets every other Tuesday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Novak Room at Fatty’s Pub and Grille in DeKalb. Members plan service projects in the area and fellowship events such as the Rotaract Trick-Or-Trivia Trivia Contest on Oct. 5 at Blumen Gardens. Tickets for that event are available for purchase via the Rotaract Facebook page or Rotaract website with all proceeds supporting local service projects.

The Rotaract Club of Sycamore was responsible for several fundraisers last year including the Support Local Coupon Book, Pumpkin Fest Pop-Up-Booth, as well as numerous service projects such as the Little Free Library, Born Learning Trail, Coats for Kids Project, Adopt-A-Highway and volunteering at the Turning Back Time Car Show.
