Disaster Relief
from Rotary International 
Rotary members and The Rotary Foundation play a unique role in disaster recovery and rebuilding efforts. Working closely with our partner ShelterBox and other organizations that specialize in disaster relief, Rotary members lead projects to support every phase of a community's recovery. 
Rotary supports three phases of relief:
  1. Immediate response: Our local clubs and partners immediately offer helping hands and supplies.

  2. Short-term assistance: Our clubs and districts help affected communities wherever we can through funds and materials to re-establish day-to-day operations.

  3. Long-term rebuilding: Our clubs plan and implement projects that rebuild affected communities.

Want to help communities recover from disaster? More information can be found here:

Rotary Movie Night
Our social last weekend was a lot of family-friendly fun! 
It was a nice evening outside as we watched Sing! The kids had a lot of fun eating popcorn and drinking lemonade while watching the family-friendly movie. The adults were able to engage in great conversation. 
Rotary Co-Sponsors Cradle2Career Event
The Rotary Clubs of Rochester, along with other business and civic organizations, are co-sponsoring a Cradle2Career event on October 15 featuring Art Rolnick, former Vice President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis.
Cradle to Career
Rolnick has done number studies on the economic benefits of early childhood education, which fits right in with Cradle2Career's focus. Cradle2Career is a community initiative born several years ago from a Rotary Clubs of Rochester effort to investigate how best to improve literacy in Rochester. Through a Rotary grant and participation from the clubs the efforts have lead to a clear mission and goals and, best of all, community ownership from the business, government, education and non-profit sectors. 
Learn more about Cradle2Career at their website:
The event will be held October 15, 2019, at the downtown Hilton. More information will be coming soon.
