Club members recently presented a donation to help support the expansion of the Mission High School/Trade School - St. Francis Assisi in El Cercado, Dominican Republic.

March Food Drive
On March 18, Rotarians, with the help of Scouts from Troop 6 and Interactors from Mattituck and Southold High Schools, collected 33 boxes full of food and almost $500 during a "Stuff-a-Bus" food drive outside Southold IGA. Everything was divided between three local food pantries. Thanks to all who donated or volunteered their time!
Laura Goodale Award
Each year, Southold and Greenport Rotary Clubs donate a combined $3000 to Stony Brook ELIH (Eastern Long Island Hospital) at the Laura Goodale Award Dinner. The award is given to honor the dedication and exemplary service of a very deserving healthcare employee who embodies the legacy of Laura Goodale, a former Eastern Long Island Hospital nurse who began working there in 1918. Laura Goodale's 42-year service record as an “unforgettable nurse and caregiver” was so extraordinary it won her recognition as the “Florence Nightingale” of the North Fork.
Congratulations to Deborah Boesch-O'Toole, RN, who was selected to receive the 38th Annual Laura Goodale Memorial Award, held at the Townsend Manor Inn on June 13, 2023.
Rotarians and Interactors helped the Salvation Army by ringing the bell for donations in Southold and Mattituck on December 17.
