Upcoming Events
Serving The Greece Community
The Greece Rotary Club has taken up the initiative to recycle “Stars” for our troops and veterans.  To request stars please email your request to the link below. We are limiting the stars request to 5 stars. We will include a self-addressed stamped envelope for you to make a tax exempt contribution to the Greece Rotary Foundation, which we will then forward your contribution to The Stars for Our Troops. 
 
Thank You for Your Service
 
Due to Covid lockdowns, our traditional Christmas Party that is hosted by the club for BOCES2 on the West side of the county was replaced by providing Christmas bags to the students.  102 goodie backs are prepared for the 19 classrooms of students.  Each bag included the usual toys plus a craft to be done at their class room party. Their individual class parties will also include a video chosen by the teacher and snacks thanks to our  Wegmans gift card.  So, while we cannot party with the children this year, they will still be able to celebrate.
Retiring State Assemblymen, Peter Lawrence, was at our last meeting sharing his career as a NYS Trooper, US Marshall and his time in the NYS Legislature. An informative session for all! Thank you for your service Peter!
Last meeting we had the privilege of hosting our District Governor, Linda Kohl.   Linda shared with the club her vision for the current year.  Additionally, Linda got to help welcome the newest member of our club as we inducted Steve Nash.  Steve is a great addition to the club bringing a career's worth of experience in the Greece School District.  Welcome Steve!
Greece Rotarians could be found during the month of October cutting "Stars for our Troops", and program to recognize our veterans, as well as, supporting our own Rotary members, as Mike Garver held an open house for his new business, Minute Man Press on West Ridge Rd.
For over 35 years Rotary International has been working to eradicate Polio from the planet...and we are almost there! Saturday was World Polio Day. It is easy to make a donation to the eradication effort using the following link: https://my.rotary.org/en/donate
Seeing the success and benefit of this 35 year effort, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation also matches each donation, dollar for dollar.
Any donation is appreciated AND doubled! Thanks!
The month of July saw the addition and induction of two new members into the Club. Cameron Knaub and David Georgiev of The Guardians of Hope joined the club. Their organization connects resources in Africa, primarily Zambia, to assist with clean water projects and building of schools. Check them out at www.theguardiansofhope.org
 
The 2020-21 year kicked off with presenting awards for the 2019-2020 year.  Bill Sauers, President of the Greece Historical Society and Museum, was name Greece Rotary's Community Person of the Year.  Brenda Herman was presented the award for Rotarian of the Year.  Congratulations to both individuals, and thank you both for the great work that you do in our community.
