Happy New Year!
As we enter the second half of Rotary year 2018 – 2019 it’s exciting to look back to see what our club has accomplished in the first half of the year. Here are just a few our activities.
We have continued to work on a district wide media campaign to address the opiate epidemic in our area by raising awareness of the need to properly dispose of medications, supplying drug drop boxes throughout the district, providing high school students the training they need to be positive leaders in their schools and distributing informational flyers through local hospitals, primary care locations, businesses and Rotary Clubs.
We have also provided clothing the the SUNY Broome “Career Closet”, helped fund a women’s market project in Ghana, hosted political forums in November between local candidates for public office and treated some children from Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School to a holiday lunch with our club where we were all treated to a visit from the conductor of the Polar Express.
We welcomed our Exchange Student Moritz and saw Tavyia depart for India.
Also at the District conference Past District Governor Lana Rouff, a long time member of our club was honored with a “Rotary Service Above Self Award”. This award, given by the Rotary International Board of Directors recognizes volunteer service. Congratulations, Lana!
We welcomed new members and honored several Paul Harris recipients.
We are looking forward to an equally exciting second half of the year.
