The Rotary Club of Marco Island Sunrise recently presented its Unsung Hero Award for Second Quarter 2018 to Anthony DeLucia (aka Steve Reynolds). Anthony is recognized for his service to the Marco Island community and placing “service above self” consistent with Rotary’s aspirations.

Anthony’s stage name of Steve Reynolds is known to almost all Marco Island residents and many visitors. He often volunteers his service as emcee and announcer and also provides music as a disc jockey for many events.

How many events has Anthony supported? Too many to list, but he has been an organizer, promoter, announcer or volunteered with the Tour de Marco, Mutts & Martinis, the Marco Island Car Show put on by the Kiwanis, the Marco Island Seafood and Music Festival, the Souper Bowl fundraiser, the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, and the Taste of Marco. This is merely a partial listing, omitting many appearances such as the City’s Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day observances, Marco Boxing Club Main Events, Island Rocks concert series and Christmas Island Style events.

As the Sunrise Rotary’s Unsung Hero, Anthony was awarded a plaque commemorating the recognition. The Club will also donate $100 to a charity chosen by Anthony and 20 polio vaccines will be contributed in his name as part of Rotary International’s effort to eradicate polio.

The Unsung Hero Award recognizes a member of the Marco Island community who unselfishly helps others and who has not generally been recognized for such service. The recipient is not a member of Rotary, but either works, lives or provides service on Marco Island. The Rotary Club is now accepting nominations for the third quarter 2018 Unsung Hero.

Rotary Club of Marco Island Sunrise awards its Unsung Hero on a quarterly basis. Nomination forms may be obtained from Sunrise Rotary at www.marcoislandsunriserotary.org or from William G. Morris, Chairman, 247 North Collier Blvd., Suite 202, Marco Island 34145 or wgm@wgmorrislaw.com.
