2017 is winding down and we have a lot to be thankful for. I'm thankful for family, friends, and my family of Rotary. We do so much for our world, it's hard (if not impossible) to list everything.

 
Two Special Rotarians
 
 
Endicott Rotary uses concession stands as our main fundraisers for the club.  For over eleven years Endicott Rotarians organized and volunteered at the Binghamton University basketball games’ concession stand of the Events Center.  It takes 10-12 persons at each of the 20 or more games of a winter season.  Two persons, Tom and Sandy Johnson (60+ years old) have taken the responsibility of organizing the stock items, counting the money and scheduling the other Rotarians to volunteer each week.   They work almost every game starting earlier and leaving last when the work is done.  It is a big responsibility for Tom and Sandy to serve Rotary unselfishly in this manner.  After this huge commitment of time and energy, the club celebrates them and everyone with a large party of gratitude for their work each season.
Learn how Rotarians in our district serve their local communities and the world. Watch the video prepared for the Foundation Dinner here.
A very special 'thank you' goes out to Jackie, Rick, and Michael Sands at RVSA Advertising for producing and to District Grants Chair Lana Rouff for writing the video.
 
TEEN INSTITUTE A SUCCESS
Rotary District 7170 sent 10 high school teams from across its district to the Heart of NY Teen Institute in Penn Yan, New York.  This was part of the Opioid Fighting Addiction Grant that was awarded last spring.   JoAnn Wickman and I (Lana Rouff) attended the Teen Institute on Saturday and was quite impressed with not only those young people attending but staff that was empowering these teens with the knowledge, skills and confidence to lead themselves and their peers to lead an drug free life. They were taught how to strengthen their leadership skills, advocate for positive change and promote healthy decision making.  It is the goal of grant that these young people return with an action plan that will benefit their communities with an Action Plan.

August is Rotary Membership Month. Did you know that one excellent way to recruit new Rotarians is to hold an Open House or Membership Mixer?

Here are some tips and a link to an invitation letter that you can customize for your club.
