Spring 2016 Newsletter

Scottsville Rotary is a group of individuals working together to improve our community and our world.  Rotary International is a worldwide service organization with the motto “Service Above Self.”  We as Scottsville Rotarians work toward serving our community first and then on to the community at large, largely focusing on our youth.  We live by The Four Way Test in all things we think, say or do:  Is it the Truth, Is it Fair to All Concerned, Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships, and Is it Beneficial to All Concerned.
We are finalizing a combined fundraiser with the Greater Wheatland area Chamber of Commerce:  the Casino Night, April 9th, at the Chili Country Club.  It is a great evening of food, fun and pretend gambling.  Tickets are $40 and must be purchased in advance.  Contact Diana Balch (889-1526) or stop by Scottsville Spirits for tickets and further information.
Scottsville Rotary will soon be printing the biennial Greater Wheatland Area Business Listing.  Copies of the Listing will be distributed to listed businesses and shared with the community. Contact John Kyle, 889-2481, for more information.

Scottsville Rotary Services Foundation is accepting donations to the Robert and Karen Chan Rotary International Student Exchange Program Fund.  Bob and Karen Chan were both members of the Scottsville Rotary Club for many years actively supporting the Student Exchange Program at the local and Rotary District level.  Bob was a charter member of our club. The Fund was established in March 2016 as a memorial to Robert Earl Chan, Sr. and his wife Karen.  Donations may be sent to Scottsville Rotary, PO Box 85, Scottsville, NY 14546.
We are also in the planning stages of our annual wine raffle.  We may change it up this year where you would receive three bottles of wine each month rather than three cases all at once.  Keep looking for more information or contact Glenn Balch (330-5576).
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.
