Rye'sAbove

 

Rye’sAbove is a public art project and fundraiser led by The Rotary Club of Rye and The Rye Arts Center. The goal is to uplift the community through the arts while supporting educational programs in the region. Participating artists have transformed aluminum and steel sculptures into original works of art. The larger butterflies are currently displayed on the Village Green in Rye where they will remain throughout the summer. Smaller butterflies will be displayed in storefronts and businesses in Rye.

The butterflies are now available for purchase in an online auction. Click the button below to bid. Net proceeds from the auction and sponsorships will be utilized for educational programs and scholarships for students in our area.

The projects webpage is location here. Bidding is now open here.

The Rye Rotary Club installed their new President and board at the Wainwright House on Wednesday June 30th! Thank you to all who came out to celebrate this amazing evening!
 
 

Rye Rotary participated in the Million Mask Challenge! We thank the Rossi Foundation, who donated millions of masks and we were the recipient of 4,000 masks. We also thank DG Mary Shackleton and Libby Hollahan for making this a reality for us.

We have donated 1,000 to the Osborn, 1,000 masks to SPRYE and 1,000 masks to the Rye EMS.  We have another 1,000 masks left and will be donating some to OPEN DOOR in Port Chester.

Thank you to all who came to help. County Executive George Latimer was there and was happy to see us!

WHY JOIN ROTARY

Service Opportunities
Club members have many opportunities for humanitarian service, both locally and internationally. Service programs address such concerns as health care, hunger, poverty, illiteracy, and the environment. Rotarians experience the fulfilment that comes from giving back to the community.
 
Professional Networking
A founding principle of Rotary was to meet periodically to enjoy camaraderie and enlarge 
one’s circle of business and professional acquaintances. As the oldest service club in the world, Rotary club members represent a cross-section of the community’s owners, executives, managers, political leaders, and professionals - people who make decisions and influence policy.
 
International Awareness
With more than 32,000 clubs in over 200 countries & geographical areas, Rotarians gain an understanding of humanitarian issues through international service projects and exchange programs. One of Rotary’s highest objectives is to build goodwill and peace throughout the world.
 
Friendship
Rotary was founded on fellowship, an ideal that remains a major attraction of membership to- day. Club members enjoy the camaraderie with like-minded professionals, and club projects offer additional opportunities to develop enduring friendships. Rotary club members who travel have friendly contacts in almost every city in the world.
 
Good Citizenship
Weekly Rotary club programs keep members informed about what is taking place in the community, nation, and world and motivated to make a difference.
 
Family Foundations
Rotary sponsors some of the world’s largest youth exchange, educational exchange, and scholarship programs. Rotary clubs provide innovative training opportunities and mentoring for young leaders and involve family members in a wide range of social and service activities.
 
Entertainment
Social activities give Rotarians a chance to let loose and have fun. Every Rotary club and district hosts parties and activities that offer diversions from today’s demanding professional and personal schedules. Conferences, conventions, assemblies, and social events provide entertainment as well as Rotary information, education, and service.
 
Ethical Environment
Encouraging high ethical standards in one’s profession and respect for all worthy vocations has been a hallmark of Rotary from its earliest days. In their business and professional lives, Rotarians abide by The Four-Way Test:. Of the things we think, say or do:
1) Is it the TRUTH?
2) Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3) Will it BUILD GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
 
Leadership Development
Rotary is an organisation of successful professionals. Team building, fundraising, public 
speaking, planning, organisation, and communication are just a sampling of the leadership skills that club members can exercise and enhance. Being a Rotary leader provides further experience in learning how to motivate, inspire, and guide others.
 
Diversity in Membership
Rotary’s classification system ensures that a club’s membership represents a variety of the community’s professional men and women, including leaders in business, industry, the arts, government, sports, the military, and religion. Rotary clubs are non-political, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.
