We would like to invite the Rotary International Clubs in Queens County to co-sponsor this celebration. The event will be held in the new Atrium at the Queens Museum in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. Rotary International was a cosponsor of the UN’s 60th Anniversary celebration at the museum.
All Rotarians, UN Colleagues and friends from around the world are welcome to enjoy a buffet dinner, music
and fantastic view of NYC skyline at night.  Reserve by October 20th for special $30 savings.

To most in the world of Rotary, there is a brief acknowledgement that exchange students are those foreign kids that come to our district for a short term or long term exchange, and/or those students from our district that are interested in going out on an exchange (short term or long term) that some people in a local club ‘sign off on’ in order for that process to come to fruition.
Membership is NOT a Program of Rotary International



August is Membership Month, which means it’s time to celebrate your Rotary club, your members, and the good you do in your community and around the world. Read more.... http://



Letter to the District

July has arrived and we look forward  to a new Rotary year. As your District Governor, I am honored to have the opportunity to serve you my fellow Rotarians.
This years Rotary theme is "Light Up Rotary". It's not just a theme for the year it is a call for each club to take action and make a Rotary stronger. The 2014-15 Presidential Citation will recognize Rotary clubs that take action to increase their membership, enhance their service impact, and expand their network. Clubs are asked to sponsor a Rotary Day to introduce a rotary to non-Rotarians.

My emphasis this year as always the five avenues of service. We must continue to support and get involved to continue not only the growth of RI, but our District.

It's important that the District understands what's at stake.

District Governor Tony

DG Tony has asked that we start a committee of Rotarians to promote the importance of health and health awareness for the Rotarians and our families in our District.
Healthy Rotarians can do more for their family, their business as well as their club.
It will be composed of of all the different doctors (both traditional and alternative), health professionals, health care providers and any Rotarian who is just plain interested in seeing that the level of health and health awareness in our District is raised.So all Rotarians are welcome to join.

On behalf of myself and the District Staff wishing you and your families a safe and happy 4th of July.!
