Thank you for your support of the May 9, 2019 Rye Rotary Foundation Annual Dinner that took place on May 9, 2019 to Honor and Celebrate Dino Garr’s 300th game win and the life of Jim Yedowitz. 

Over 120 guests gathered at Whitby Castle, including Rye High Class of 65 alumni to future graduates, Rye City School District administrators, faculty and retirees, Rotarians from Rye and Rotary District 7230, and friends and neighbors. Dr, Eric Byrne, Superintendent of Schools, was the gracious emcee.

Dr. Eric Byrne officiated with presentations from the New York State Senate and Assembly, the Westchester County Executive, the Westchester County Board of Legislators, and the official Honor and Celebrate award ceremony. The ceremony began with a surprise when over 40 Rye High School students entered the dining room, led by track and football captains holding the Garnet “G” banner. The captains joined Dr. Byrne at the podium as the students gathered around.

 

The ceremony began with bouquets of flowers presented to Cathy Garr and Anne Yedowitz followed by Rye Rotary Foundation plaque presentations. The Dino Garr presentation was assisted by Declan LaVelle and Brendan LaVelle. The Jim Yedowitz presentation was assisted by Benjamin Johnson and Cian Galligan and accepted by Daniel Yedowitz (Jim’s son).  To further commemorate the occasion, the students presented a signed RHS football to Dino Garr and a signed RHS track jersey to Daniel Yedowitz.

Other event highlights included a live podcast by Westchester Talk Radio (https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/westchestertalkradio/episodes/2019-05-20T09_57_16-07_00), a roving reporter from the Rye Record interviewing guests, and a live auction fundraiser conducted by Rye Rotarian, Tom Mullooly.  Be sure to visit  www.ryerotary.org to see all of the event photos.

On behalf of the Rye Rotary Foundation, the Rotary Club of Rye, and the Honor and Celebrate Committee, thank you for your support. (See photos below)

 

Sincerely,

Angela Sculti

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.
