Rye Rotary was blessed to honor Declan Lavelle with our 2019 Sportsmanship Award. With family, coaches and school administrators on hand, we had a great lunch celebrating a great young man and the tradition of sportsmanship between the Rye and Harrison football teams.
 
Declan is going on to play baseball at Fordham in the fall. We wish him nothing but the best.
 
 

For our Friday, December 13th luncheon at Whitby Castle, we welcomed a great speaker and inducted a new member to our growing Rye Rotary Club!

Dr. Bruce McGibbon of Greenwich Hospital spoke on the new technologies and trial results that are reshaping how radiation therapy is being used to treat cancer. We thank him for taking time to share this interesting and important information with our members.

And speaking of members...we are delighted to welcome Paolo Bacchiarello, a wonderful new addition to our Club! Paolo’s international background and strong service and volunteer history greatly enhances the diversity and collective experience of our membership. Congratulations Paolo!

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.
