As the flowers reach for the spring sunshine and soak up the rain drops, Rotarians start to buzz with work in the community and important fundraising efforts. We did an Earth Day clean-up along the Marble Street nature trail, will be participating in the village Memorial Day parade and many are very busy with planning Seneca River Days. 
Seneca River Days is our club's original, mega fundraiser, drawing in thousands of dollars for us to give back to the community through scholarships, beautification projects, services for the elderly and veterans, and so much more. Check out the newsletter for a current list of all we've donated this Rotary year! This year's event is returning to the two-day format with a Food Truck & Fireworks event on Paper Mill Island on Friday, June 8th. Admission is $5, which also gets you a duck ticket! Saturday, June 9th we will be at our usual spot in Mercer Park with FREE admission and lots of entertainment and fun throughout the day, including traditions like the Great Seneca River Duck Race, along with new favorites like the treasure hunt and character meet-and-greets. Please like our page on Facebook to get the latest news and updates on the event. We hope you will save the dates and join us for some good, old-fashioned community fun!
With all of these things going on in the next two months, now is a great time to get involved in Rotary. You can pitch in all kinds of ways to find something you are most passionate about doing. Working side-by-side with fellow Rotarians is the best way to get to know each other. We welcome you to join us at an upcoming meeting. Please note a couple of our meetings in May are moved to the library, so make sure you check the schedule along the right side of the page!
