Summer2016

 
Greetings from the Scottsville Rotary Club.  We are a group of individuals dedicated to serving our community, both local and worldwide.
 
As summer winds down, and we look toward cooler, crisp days, we pause and take a look at our accomplishments this past year. 
  • April 2016, our Casino Night fundraiser, co-sponsored by the Greater Wheatland area Chamber of Commerce, was a fun night for all while raising funds to support our community.
  • Route 383 Road Cleanup, we take on this project three times each year. Honk and wave as you go by.
  • Each December we go Christmas Caroling at Monroe Community Hospital.  We are grateful and fortunate to be joined by members of WCHS choir.  The residents really enjoy this activity.
  • Each year we provide dictionaries to all third grade students at TJ Connor and School 34 in the city.  The students are always excited to receive their very own dictionary and the staff at both schools are very appreciative of this project.
  • In February we co-hosted the annual Groundhog Dinner to support the WCHS Interact Club and Assets Initiative.  It’s a great meal and a great cause.  Don’t miss out next February.
  • We always enjoy marching in the annual Memorial Day Parade.
  • As in prior years, we support the Mid-Week Farmers Market by providing food for the shoppers and vendors.  This year we served BBQ hamburgers and Sloppy Joes on three separate Wednesday evenings.
  • Each year we award two $1,000 scholarships to WCHS graduating seniors. This year’s recipients were Abbie Berl and Elizabeth Russell.  It is always a difficult decision to select only two, and this year was no exception.  Congratulations Abbie & Elizabeth.
  • Every two years, we publish the Greater Wheatland Area Business Directory.  This is both a fundraiser and a community service.  If you have not received your 2016-17 directory this year, please contact us and we will see that you receive one.  It is a great resource for goods and services.
  • The Scottsville Family Fun Fest is always a great occasion.  Our club assists with the 5K race and staffs the Information Table while selling the “Raking in the Cash” and Wine Raffle tickets.
  • Camp Haccamo is a District 7120 Rotary sponsored camping opportunity for children and adults with disabilities.  Scottsville Rotary is a proud sponsor of Camp Haccamo.  We provide financial support as well as volunteering at camping activities.
 
Mark your calendars for April 29, 2017.  This will be our Spring Fling and is always a great evening.
 
Scottsville Rotary is hosting the Robert and Karen Chan Memorial Fund. This fund honors Bob and Karen and allows them to continue to support Rotary Exchange Students with a little extra help so students can enjoy adventures, learn, share and expand the global community well into the future. Your donation salutes Bob and Karen and continues their legacy through this memorial fund. To contribute, contact any Scottsville Rotarian or mail your donation to PO Box 85, Scottsville 14546 and mark your donation as the Chan Memorial Fund.  .
 
If you are interested in knowing more about our club and its activities, please join us at one of our regular meetings on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at the Genesee Country Inn B&B in Mumford.  Meetings begin at 6:00pm with dinner followed by a program of interest to all.  The second Tuesday of the month is set aside for project development or fellowship nights.  The fourth Tuesday of each month, we meet upstairs at Salvatore’s Saloon for business/planning.  Check our website www.scottsvillerotary.org or Like us on Facebook for more information.  You are welcome and encouraged to attend any of our meetings.
