It is with the deepest regret to announce that Charlie Baack has passed away. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time.

Charlie will always remain in our hearts.

The Sayville Rotary Club volunteers their time every year at the Sayville Chamber of Commerce Summerfest!
RYLA students thank the Rotary Club of Sayville for affording them the opportunity to be a part ot the Spring 2015 RYLA program.

 
Excerpt from a letter to the Club by one of the RYLA students:
 
(...)"I would like to express my gratitude for being able to attend such a wonderful program. My Entrepreneurship teacher told me about the program during class, and as soon as she described to me what the program was all about, I immediately applied. I am so thankful for being granted the chance to work with so many great and inspirational people. It was truly a special experience that taught me the fundamentals necessary to be an exceptional leader. The opportunity to work and bond with others of similar backgrounds and interests afforded me an unforgettable and influential experience. My weekend was filled with knowledgeable and inspiring speakers and activities. I was also given the opportunity to share my feelings and experiences with my peers. (...) We described our time and the key concepts about RYLA and all it does to help focused, motivated and hard working young adults such as myself become better leaders. Understanding what Rotary is was also an important lesson I learned towards the end of my weekend. What Rotary offers and accomplishes is truly remarkable, and I would like to sincerely thank Rotary for being such an altruistic and opportunity providing program. I am so grateful for the opportunity to attend the weekend with so many influential peers, staff, speakers etc. My RYLA experience has helped me become more conscientious and will indeed make me a better leader, friend and son. I commit, as RYLA inspired, to do whatever I can, when I can, to help my friends, family and society. Once again, I would like to thank everyone who made my experience at RYLA as informational, challenging, inspiring and wonderful as it was. I would also like to specifically extend my sincere gratitude to the Sayville Rotary Club for funding my experience and hope it is clear that I felt it was an experience of a lifetime. Once again, sincere apologies for not being able to attend the meeting. I hope this email truly expresses my deepest and most sincere thank you's to everyone who made my experience possible.
 
With regards and gratitude,

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
