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.
Also during the Dick’s Sporting Goods Open the club runs the largest food vendor of the tournament.  For five days and three shifts a day, Rotarians volunteer to serve food, drink, and fellowship at this event.  Again, Tom and Sandy work almost every day assisting with the leadership of these work shifts.
The Johnsons are not new to food service.  They organized numerous baseball food concessions as their boys grew up.  Each year they also organize the food tent at the Johnson City field days for their church.  It goes on and on with them.
Service above self.  Amazing Rotary examples of raising funds for the community and more!
