HAMBURG — As the Warm The Children Program continues this year, under the sponsorship of the Rotary Club of Hamburg in partnership with the Town of , The Sun and Evans Bank, positive feedback on the many shopping experiences that have taken place over the past few weeks continues to pour in.
Now in its 19th year serving children in the Southtowns, donations from the community help ensure that many families will be able to have their children dressed appropriately to face winter’s colder temperatures, by receiving new warm clothing. Working with volunteer shoppers, each family is able to visit the Target Department Store in Orchard Park and personally select brand-new outerwear, including coats, jackets, snow pants, gloves, mittens and scarves.
Woo hoo! Another new member inducted to our Rotary Club of Hamburg. Welcome Kevin Neubeck!

Rotary Club of Hamburg celebrates 70 years of ‘Service Above Self’
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide, who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace in the world. This year, the Rotary Club of Hamburg marks its 70th year of service.
Rotary began in Chicago in 1905 when a businessman named Paul Harris formed a club with a unique blend of commerce and social consciousness. It grew to become Rotary International - the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs in 200 countries or geographical areas today.
Our Rotary Club was chartered on February 24, 1942 in Hamburg and continues to provide service to the community through projects such as Warm the Children, which provides warm winter clothing for children in need; and funding for not-for-profit organizations such as the Hamburg Counseling Service, the Hamburg Paleontological Society’s Penn Dixie Fossil Site and the Lounsbury Adaptive Ski Program. Rotary also funds a literacy program for children, provides college scholarships and mentors the next generation of community leaders through RYLA (Rotary’s leadership Program) for college-age young adults and SLAPSHOT for high school students.
