Our Local Veterans
 
 
Club members served brunch to our local veterans after the Veterans Day service at the Southold American Legion.
 
Purple Pinky Day
Club members were happy to stop by Mattituck HS to help out the Interact Club on Purple Pinky Day. Interactors raised funds for their projects and helped to raise awareness of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative.
 
 
 
Community Supper

Some of the Rotarians who served at a recent Community Supper. Member John Anderson prepared and cooked an excellent meal to feed nearly 80 people!

 
Project Backpack

The Club presented welcome kits and backpacks to students who are new to the country.  School administrators were glad to accept these items to distribute to local students.

 
ELIH and the Laura Goodale Award
Southold and Greenport Rotary Clubs hosted the annual Laura Goodale Dinner at which a nurse from ELIH is honored for exhibiting similar characteristics and service as the woman for whom the award is named: a nurse who gave exemplary service to the hospital for 42 years beginning in 1918.
 
In addition, the two Club presidents presented the hospital with a large donation, the proceeds of the annual golf outing fundraiser.
 

 

 
 
Bellringing
Rotarians and Interactors helped the Salvation Army by ringing the bell for donations in Southold, Mattituck and Cutchogue on December 1.
 
 
 
Thanksgiving Baskets
Club members put together fifty boxes filled with all the fixings for Thanksgiving dinner. Thanks to CAST, who organized the distribution of the Thanksgiving meals!
 
 
Successful Food Drive
Rotarians, with the help of Interact and the Scouts, collected a van full of food and several hundred dollars during the annual "Stuff-a-Bus" drive outside of the King Kullen supermarket in Cutchogue.
 
 
 
 
 
Interact Officers
 
At the December 11 meeting, Barbara Ackermann formally installed the officers of the Southold and Mattituck HS Interact Clubs. Congratulations, Interactors!
 
Official District Governor Visit
 
We were glad to welcome District Governor Shawn Weis for his official visit to our club on Election Day. The DG listened, shared ideas and joined in our fellowship!
 
 
 
 
Rotary Pathfinder
In 1987 Barbara Ackermann became the first woman to be inducted into our club and our Rotary District. From then until now she has been a continuous actualization of the Rotary spirit. We all benefit from her involvement and counsel.
 

Pathfinder Barbara is shown with sponsor Bill Zitek beside her. Shaking her hand is then-President Garret Strong, and John Kramer beside him.
