Rotary WHY: Stacy Hannon - Stacy joined Rotary in 2002, at the request of her station manager, Dave, who wanted his account executives to become more involved in the community. Initially, Stacy was assigned to join Sertoma and her coworker was assigned to join Rotary. But after doing a bit of research and attending a meeting, she decided that this was exactly the club she wanted to join. With the guidance of Sharon Hamilton, Stacy become a full fledged Rotarian. And it CHANGED HER LIFE!! She gained confidence, friendships and knowledge of other countries. She hosted two visiting Rotarian students, one lists Stacy as her mother on her facebook page. When Stacy was thinking about starting a newspaper, the first people she talked with were her fellow Rotarians. She’s delighted to be a Rotarian these past 19 years, and looks forward to 19 more. She loves all of us!
Vocational committee plans to hold mock interviews at JHS in October, more details to follow.
Ruth Lundin - Jamestown Riverwalk Cleanup was a very successful event last Saturday. Sixteen Rotarians (7 from the AM Rotary Club) and six guests hauled away 38 kitchen garbage bags full of junk. We also pulled out four tires, one motor and two five-gallon buckets of glass from the walk. It was an AWESOME event.
Kathy Burch notified the club that Misty Johnson’s husband, Travis, is the artist that was featured in the Post Journal’s article about the smiling face that welcomes everyone to Frewsburg. So we all should smile back at the face and think of Misty.
David Troxell reminded the club that Jamestown has a baseball team! A couple of years ago, about 30 community members stepped forward to buy the franchise, Tarp Skunks, which plays ball in the Perfect League (college level players). Tickets are only $5 and we want to fill the stadium. David has lawn signs to promote the team - so if you would like to display a sign during the season (June & July), contact David via email ( GO SKUNKS!
Joni Blackman - Starting June 7, we will be meeting IN PERSON at the Doubletree. We will share a buffet lunch, and the meeting will be conducted both in person and on Zoom. President’s dinner will be on June 28th at the Doubletree. Melissa Myers has been elected to serve as new Director, Maria Kindberg has been elected to serve as new club Treasurer, and Kirk Young as Director and Ruth Lundin as President Elect.
The club has agreed to donate $500 through the Rotary Foundation to support oxygen converters to be sent to India - to assist in treating COVID19 patients.
Kevin Sixbey - Rotary Golf Tournament is scheduled for MONDAY, AUGUST 30th at Moon Brook Country Club. Get your teams together and send in your registration forms. This is an event not to be missed.
