RYE ROTARIANSWhile most think of Rye Rotary as an organization that acts locally, it thinks globally. “We’ve always had a dual focus,” said President Hal Schwartz in a recent interview. The international organization matches what we raise.”

 

In 2013, they picked up two sister clubs in Italy and are working on important joint projects with both of them. They’ve adopted a hospital in Burkina Faso, the third poorest country in the world. “A pro bono surgeon in the Courmayeur Club handles critical cases. Once a month, members from the Portofino Club ride out to the bush to offer whatever help they can.”

 

Rotary International is making a big global push to eradicate polio in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nigera. Rye Rotary is doing their part, raising money with their Thanksgiving Pie Sale, and, next month, with their Citrus Sale. They gave out $12,000 in scholarships to graduating Rye High seniors this year. They plan to up their community grants next year.

 

President Schwartz said his goal is to increase membership of the club by 25 percent. “We have 36 members and are hoping to add nine more.”

 

With more members, Rye Rotary can do more good.
