In The News
Each year, Greenville Rotarians donate a dictionary to each third-grade student at Scott M. Ellis Elementary.  This year, we donated 93 dictionaries.  The school makes Dictionary Day, which is held on Webster's birthday, a fun event with games and prizes for the students to learn to use their new books.  Thanks to the school for the photos of this year's event. 
Greenville Rotarian Bill Von Atzingen was honored for 60 years of Service Above Self on September 19.  He joined the Greenville Rotary in 1959, serving in a variety of positions over the years.  He is pictured here with his wife, Suzanne. Before his retirement, Von Atzingen was the owner of Von's Department Store (formerly on Main Street in Greenville) and a founding partner of STG , the firm which developed the Greenville Country Estates.
 

Greenville Rotary Club members are people from all walks of life in our community. We are committed to our 5-way test and service to the world, the Greenville community, and especially our youth.

Youth Exchange Student Host Families Needed for 2019-2020 School Year
 
The Greenville Rotary is looking for families who would be interested in hosting an exchange student during the 2019-2020 school year.  Greenville has a wonderful history of hosting an exchange student every year and an integral part of this is finding families to open their homes to youth from around the world.
 
The fascination and rewards of temporarily hosting a teen from another country is a unique opportunity provided by Rotary Clubs worldwide.  Students come to our community and enroll in GCS for a full year. During that time, they stay with three different families to give them a sense of the diversity of family life in the U.S. The average stay with each family is 3-4 months.
Some families may have children close to the age of the exchange student, some may have older or younger children, others may be childless or empty nesters. Some families may be more interested in sports, others in culture. The only requirements are a separate bed for the student, open minds and big hearts.
Students are treated as members of the family, not as guests. If your children are assigned chores, your Rotary student can also have family chores. It’s the student’s job to adapt to the family, not vice versa.  By hosting a Youth Exchange student in your home, you’ll make a young person’s dream come true, and you and your family will share an unforgettable and fulfilling experience.
If you are interested in becoming a host family please contact Greenville Rotary Youth Exchange Officer, Todd Hilgendorff.  518-966-5070 ext. 519. hilgendorfft@greenvillecsd.org
