Suffern, NY, January 21, 2013: At the crossroads of Washington and Orange Avenues, visitors and residents alike have been enjoying up-to-date Village of Suffern announcements courtesy of the Suffern Rotary Club.  A new message board, donated and installed by the Suffern Rotary Club last January, was formally dedicated on Image Thursday, January 3rd.  The public ceremony took place at 11:30AM and included Rotarians, Village of Suffern officials, and community friends. 

 The installation was a joint venture between Suffern’s Department of Public Works (DPW) and fifteen Rotarians in 2012.  The $5,000 bulletin board, which is illuminated, had to be delivered by a DPW front loader before being placed on the posts.  Esthetic enhancements were also made at Point Park and electrical connections completed, so the sign is readable 24/7.   “We are pleased to bring this gift to the Village of Suffern and appreciate the level of cooperation we’ve experienced from them to satisfy installation,” says Grover Foster, Suffern Rotary Club president.  “This project has been three years in the making and we are proud to see the information sign dedicated.”

 Founded in 1927, the Suffern Rotary Club has a long history of supporting the community with good works and fundraising.  Their intention is “Service Above Self” with a focus on local small business, education and fellow nonprofits, while still giving generously of their time and finances to back international initiatives.  The club meets every Thursday at 12:15PM at Marcello’s.

 Here are some of the e-mails I have received from Donalee while she and John are in Vera Cruz, Mexico:

 It's been amazing here. District gov met us at the airport. We drove two hours to a school ribbon cutting. Then dinner with 30 rotarians. We are staying with a family of 4. They have a camera store. Also a maid driver and grounds keeper. Then we went to city hall for a ceremony thanking Rotarians especially 8 from us or columbia. We got a citation and picture   All the newspapers were there taking pictures. Then to a symphony concert. We left home 3am. Tired. Full day tomorrow. Project fair suppose to be 22 clubs showing their projects. They take rotary seriously. All wearing rotary shirt pins jackets. I forgot my rotary business cards. This will need to be a program when I get back

Donalee

That was day one. Today was their project fair. We met with 22 clubs who had 1-4 projects each. There is so much need here and rotary is trying to do so much. There are schools to rebuild,  water projects so much need for medical equipment school desks computers. Very overwhelming. The government gives nothing for all of this. Out again tonight. Forgot. I cut the ribbon for the opening ceremony. Got a welcome citation and signed a fellowship agreement with this district and our club.

  The Salvation Army's School of Officer Training opened its doors to fellowship with the Suffern Rotary Club on Thursday, December 15th. The annual luncheon included live brass music and a performance by youngsters who attend Salvation Army's childcare. The Salvationists shared their 2011 ministry milestones achieved in Rockland County, which included their daily hands-on presence during Suffern's August floods. Many Rotarians brought gifts in support of The Salvation Army's Angel Giving Tree, which provides holiday cheer to seniors and children in Rockland.
