In The News
On June 4, the Greenville Central School District presented the annual senior awards in a virtual format.  Our treasurer, Robin Frechette, presented our annual Rotary scholarships to four outstanding seniors. We are pleased to share them with you here.
Our club would also like to congratulate all those seniors who have participated in Interact Club this year.  We are offering each Interact graduate an honorary membership to Rotary International.  
It is the hope of our club that all these students will continue to feel a part of the Rotary family, and keep Rotary in mind when they want to become involved in their community and provide "Service Above Self."
Our exchange student, Eli, has safely arrived home in Milan, Italy. Her family sent these photos of her at the airport.  We will miss her!
 
Good luck, Eli! Eli, this year's Rotary Youth Exchange student, left for her home in Milan, Italy today. Despite the fact that her exchange year was cut short by COVID-19, she was grateful and loved her experience. We will miss her. If you are interested in hosting an international student for three months during the 20-21 school year, reach out to us at greenvillenyrotaryclub@gmail.com.
Greenville students, families, and Rotarians gave Eli, our Italian Youth Exchange Student, a socially-distanced send-off today.
