District 2710 Governor
As we gather tonight to celebrate the successes of District Governor Nick’s year, and reflect on his year’s theme, “Be A Gift To The World,” the gift of Rotary is evident in this room, with friends all around all because someone shared their gift of Rotary with us.

At lunch yesterday Nick said, “Rotary is magic,” and it truly is. We all come from different backgrounds, with different talents, occupations, finances, life experiences and political views. Some Rotarians in our District even come from different countries.

Yet through Rotary service we met, became friends and do amazing things that make differences throughout the Hudson Valley as well as around the world. We take our differences and use them for the good of others.

Let us be a source of hope to those in need and let us give thanks to all our past leaders and grant wisdom and vision to our leaders yet to come. Let our Rotarians continue to have stamina, patience and a sense of humor as we work together in “Rotary Serving Humanity” during incoming District Governor Louis’ year as we continue to “Do Good and Have Fun.”
Prayer given by PDG (2014-2015) Penny Bryron at District Conference

Dear Fellow District 7210 Rotarians,
By now, I’m sure that everyone has heard about the wildfires which have devastated our northern neighbors in Ft. McMurray, Alberta, Canada, and you're probably wondering if there is anything that you could do to help.  Thankfully, it has been reported to us that the current needs of those impacted by the fires are being appropriately and professionally met by the Canadian Government and the Red Cross.  As indicated on the attached letter from our counterparts in Rotary District 5370, the long term needs of our Canadian friends is yet to be determined, so we will remain alert for appropriate opportunities to assist in the future if and when any significant needs are identified.  In the interim, we will keep all those affected in our thoughts.
Yours in Rotary,
Larry Palant

Pawling Rotary’s 5th Annual Golf Outing a Resounding Success
By Susan Stone
After the game celebration.
Pawling Rotary’s 5th Annual Golf Outing took place at the exceptionally beautiful Quaker Hill Country Club on May 12th amid abundant sunshine and good cheer, as members of the Pawling and Rotary communities came together to raise funds for the Roger Smith-Pawling Rotary Scholarship.  All dollars raised at the event will provide funds for two college scholarships donated annually to graduating seniors at Pawling High School, as well as the Pawling Rotary International Youth Exchange Scholarship, which will provide funds needed to facilitate an international educational and cultural exchange for a Pawling High School student and an incoming international student beginning in the 2017-18 school year.
Forty golfers enjoyed perfect weather as they spent the day on the Country Club’s award winning course. This year’s event honored the memory of Roger Smith, a former Rotary Club president and extraordinary community volunteer, who embodied Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self.”  Several in attendance at the event dinner spoke glowingly about Roger, his life, and the far reaching influence of his volunteerism.  Speakers included John Ammaturo and Terry Stewart, event co-chairs, as well as Mrs. Betty Smith, who spoke briefly about her late husband’s love for the Pawling community.
Additional donations to the Roger Smith-Pawling Rotary Scholarship fund may be made directly to The Pawling Rotary Club at P.O. Box 443, Pawling, New York 12564.  For further information about the Pawling Rotary Club and their mission of supporting community youngsters, please log onto their web site at

You are invited to be a part of a brand new event that has the potential to shape the future of Rotary International. The first 5 & 5 Young Professionals Summit for Rotary Districts 7210, 7230, and 7255 will be taking place in August 2016 at Bear Mountain, NY. Out of 150 grant applications to the Rotary Foundation for 2016-17 for similar programs featuring young professionals and Rotary, only 19 grants were approved. Only ONE grant was received for Rotary Zones 24 and 32, and this is it! These zones encompass the North East of the United States and all of Canada, so this is truly a unique opportunity.
The goal of the Young Professionals Summit is to understand how Rotary International can be relevant to
