    Incoming president Sal Gambino was presented with a special pair of Rotary socks by outgoing co-president Marjorie Keith during the dinner.

    Maria Quezada and Marjorie Nichols Keith were lauded for their efforts as co-presidents during the past year while Sal Gambino was wished well in the new leadership capacity when the Carmel Rotary conducted its installation dinner last Thursday evening at the Centennial Golf Club.

    Rotary’s motto of Service Above Self was evident when members presented a variety of service awards to community members including retired teacher Joan Newman who donates handmade quilts to the chapter which are used as fundraisers for chapter causes including student scholarships.

    Rotarians at Work. Planting at George's Place. - A little drizzle couldn’t stop our Rotary crew last Saturday from landscaping outside of George’s. Six Diamonds, owned by Rotarian Maria Quezada and her husband, Manny, donated the plantings, workers and their expertise. Rotarians Margie Keith, Kathy Valletta, Stefanie Hubert, Mike McDonough and Alex Santos helped in the planting. Karen and Gus Pourakis, owners of George’s, were thrilled with the beautiful result.

    The Carmel Rotary Club together with the Carmel High School Interact Club announces the 16th Annual Community Basketball Challenge.

    This popular community fundraising event will be held on Saturday, February 25th, 9am-1pm, at the Carmel High School Gym, 30 Fair St., Carmel. This event offers non-profit organizations and community project groups an opportunity to raise funds to support their programs and services.

    Organizations, clubs, adults and youth, and businesses are invited to sign-up and raise money for their favorite non-profit organization. It’s fun and easy. You don’t have to be a basketball player or know how to play the game to participate. Here’s how it works - participants ask for pledges per basket and/or flat donations from as many supporters (clientele, friends and neighbors) as they can. Then at the event, participants will attempt to complete as many baskets as possible during a two-minute period. Each successful basket will be tallied against per basket pledges and added to flat donations to equal the amount due from each of the participants’ supporters. Trophies will awarded in the youth division and prizes in the adult division to the persons successfully completing the most baskets in the various age groups. Businesses and community members are also invited to become event sponsors. The details on how to become part of the Community Basketball Challenge are on the Carmel Rotary Club website listed below as well as calling the phone number also listed below.

    “This year we have set a goal of $70,000.” event Co- Chairs Sal Gambino and Mary Shanley stated. They continued to note, “Our local not-for-profits and community projects provide invaluable services to our Putnam County communities. We continue to see increased demand for the basic needs of food, shelter, health services and education making the Community Basketball Challenge so important.” Although the goal is aggressive both, Mr. Gambino and Mrs. Shanley believe it is achievable with the support of our Putnam community.

    “This year we have set a goal of $65,000.” event Co- Chairs Sal Gambino and Mary Shanley stated. They continued to note “over these past two years these organizations have had to cancel many of their own fundraising efforts while the demand for their services has increased. That fact makes this event even more important in helping them maintain their level of service to the Putnam community.” Although the goal is aggressive both, Mr. Gambino and Mrs. Shanley , believe it is achievable with the support of the community members.

    Since 2008, the Community Basketball Challenge, has raised over $500,000. with 91 different organizations benefitting from the proceeds.
