Rotary Central - This is Rotary!
Scientist, farmer, innovator, Rotarian

A plainsman with a PhD, Bob Quinn uses his 4,000-acre Montana spread as a laboratory to revive an ancient grain, rethink agricultural practices, and reinvigorate rural communities

Exodus

Since 2015, more than 4 million people have fled an economically devastated Venezuela. Tracking the stories of three who left puts faces on that staggering statistic.

More than a library

After the genocide of 1994, Rotarians led a successful campaign to build Rwanda’s first public library.

Goshen Rotarians Read to Scotchtown Students during Kindness Assembly

  The monthly Kindness and Friendship Assemblies at Scotchtown Avenue Elementary hosted two very special guests on Friday, Feb. 21, the 100th Day of School.
  Goshen Rotary representatives Amy VanAmburgh and Christopher Tippin offered their support to the school’s emphasis on kindness by reading Mem Fox’s “Whoever you are” to every Scotchtown student.
Illustrated by Leslie Staub, “Whoever you are” explores the differences between children that make them unique, as well as the common humanity that unites them.  “Their lives may be different from yours, and their words may be very different from yours. But inside, their hearts are just like yours,” the book concludes.

  Principal Henry Freedman took the opportunity to thank and praise students for their participation on recent kindness-themed activities throughout the school. He encouraged them to always care for their school and each other, and make the world a better place.
 
 
 
 

Annual Gift of Words to Our 3rd Graders by Goshen Rotary

February 18, 2020....All the Third grade students at The Goshen Intermediate School received their very own Webster's Dictionary for Students, donated by the members of the The Rotary Club of Goshen, NY. 
 
Allen Zick presented the students with information about how to use the dictionary to find out the definitions, spelling and pronunciation of words in the English language. The dictionaries will help students with vocabulary development, spelling, and increasing their word knowledge. Students also learned a bit of history about Noah Webster, who was a teacher in Goshen in the 1800s who created the Webster's Dictionary as a resource for his students.
 
The books were distributed by Rotarians Mark Gargiulo, Cliff Kelsey, Buzz Zingaro and Vince McCormack
 
 

Urbanski Park Playground Sign

During the last Family Fun Day, it was noted that the signs posted at the Urbanski Park Playground were in pretty bad shape. The Board voted to fix the existing signage. After many delays, the sign was finally erected by Rotarians Rolly Peacock and Pat Foley.

There's a new Scout in town!

Goshen has taken to heart the decision at the national level of the male-only Boy Scouts of America to include girls from 11 to 17 years old.

So far, five girls have joined Troop 62, a long-established Boy Scout troop, currently chartered by Goshen Rotary.

Why would girls want to join a troop of Boy Scouts?

 

Rotary and ShelterBox celebrate the power of partnership

Evanston Ill., Rotary International announced on 3 June a three-year partnership renewal with its disaster relief project partner, ShelterBox. For almost 20 years, this unique humanitarian alliance has supported families with a place to call home after disaster.

Rotary is a global network whose members take action to make a lasting difference in their communities – and worldwide. ShelterBox provides emergency shelters and other essential items to support families who have lost their homes in disaster.

Goshen Rotary builds a Raised Bed Garden for Braeside Camp...

Several members of the Rotary Club of Goshen, NY gathered Sunday, 6/23/19 to assemble Raised Garden Kits for the Breaside Campers. After several comments regarding "the importance of measuring twice" and "real men don't read instructions", the team was able to assemble the kits.
