"Rotary Responds" 5K Run/Walk

“Rotary Responds” 5k Walk/Run 

Saturday, June 5, 2021, 10:00 a.m.

     Greenville’s Rotary Responds 5K Run/Walk is planned to be a family fun event to bring the community together and provide healthful outdoor recreation after our long COVID winter.  The course will begin and end in the George Vanderbilt Town Park on Town Park Road in Greenville, NY (Greene County), and will wind along country roads with views of the Catskill Mountains and roadside pond.  Funds raised by race registration and sponsorships will support interpretive historical and trail map signage in the Vanderbilt Town Park.  The Rotary Club’s partner in the sign project is Community Partners of Greenville.  The race will be COVID19 compliant with masks required when not running.

    Greenville Rotary Club members are people from all walks of life in our community. We are committed to our five-way test and service to the world, the Greenville community, and especially our youth.  We try to live by the Rotary International motto “Service Above Self.”

    All participants will receive a Goodie Bag consisting of a medal, water, snack, and a certificate for a beverage at The Tasting Lab in Greenville or a certificate for a Stewart’s ice cream cone, depending on the age of the entrant.

In The News
Both the Greenville Rotary Club and the GCS Interact Club celebrated Rotary International's Water and Sanitation Month with service projects.  The Interact Club sponsored a World Water Day event and the Rotary Club did a roadside clean up up and down Routes 32 and 81 in the heart of Greenville.  Thanks to all who participated!

Since both the Tuesday and Thursday clubs are meeting remotely on Zoom, we have decided to combine our meetings.  Going forward we will meet on Thursdays at 6 p.m. on the first and third weeks of the month and on Tuesdays on the second and fourth weeks.  Log-on information is the same for both meetings.

• Water and sanitation
• Maternal and child health
• Basic education and literacy
• Economic and community development
