Dear Rotarians, 
April is Maternal and Child Health month. This makes me think of our project in providing clean water to the village in Haiti. Clean water and sanitation are something many of us take for granted. In our ever-changing health climate, fresh water has provided clean drinking water as well as promoted a healthy environment. Here at home, I encourage all of the women in Rotary to invest in their personal health with yearly physicals, including a mammogram. 
I want to personally thank everyone who attended the 100th anniversary dinner celebration. The committee worked very hard to make March 31 a very special night, not only for our club, but the Endicott community. I hope the next 100 years will be as great as the last 100 years. 
March rounded out our season of volunteering at Binghamton University. Tom Johnson and his crew "slam dunked" another season with 31 games. We had some layups, some fouls and a lot of three pointers this past season, but we all came together and pulled through. Binghamton University/Sodexo concessions is our club's largest fundraiser. This year our foundation raised over $23K! Again, I cannot thank each and every volunteer enough for their time and service to our club.
Our club will once again be participating in the historic tree planting program. This program was started by our immediate past president Bill Campbell, with plans to continue for years to come. Three more trees will be planted at the remaining elementary schools within the Union Endicott School district. The trees, one George Washington Sycamore, one Franklin Roosevelt Oak and one Edgar Alan Poe Hackberry. 
We have also been asked to paint the interior walls of community meeting hall at the Visitor's Center. I will be looking for a project leader as well as volunteers for prep and painting. 
The district conference is being held near Rochester this year on April 29, 30 and May 1. The club is sending Darlene Leonard and Betty Casey to represent Endicott. We look forward to hearing what they learn. 
Please stay safe!

The Endicott Rotary Foundation has been busy the past month. We normally meet quarterly; however, it seems as though we are having a short meeting almost every week. We will be convening in the coming weeks to review and revise the Foundation's guidelines for grant-making. We plan to invite a cross-section of long-time Club members who have a good handle on the history of the Foundation's grantmaking activities over the years. 
Board members have approved two donations this month. The first is a $1,000 donation to Rotary International's Disaster Relief Fund for Ukraine in Stephan Wasylko's name. The second is a $1,000 donation to Nobel Laureate M. Stanley Wittingham's favorite charity, Sock Out Cancer.

The Dick's Sporting Goods Open will be played at Endicott's En-Joie Golf Course from August 15-21, 2022. Endicott Rotary will once again volunteer in the main concession tent under the direction of Tom Latini. The response from our club has truly been overwhelming. In record time every time slot has been filled, a true testament to our club's dedication and comradery. ~ Thank you! ~ 
There are opportunities to volunteer in other areas of the open, Dave Baker is looking for Marshalls.  ~ Service Above Self ~ 
Volunteers Needed
We have been asked to do some interior painting

Please let us know if you are willing to help paint! 
This project has been postponed until September/October as the center is fully booked for the spring and summer weekends.
BU Basketball
We made it! Tom Johnson and his crew pulled off another great season! BU is the Club's largest revenue producer. We will receive over $23K from Binghamton University/Sodexo this year for our hard work. 
We want to thank each and every one of you who have volunteered your time this year to make this fundraising endeavor a success. There are several people who work nearly every game, and we want to give them a special thank you! Tom and Sandy Johnson, Betty Casey, Lou Karedes, Bob Utter, Mike Sopchack, Dottie Kuehl, Jerry Motsavage and many others, we thank you!    
Great job everyone on great season!

Rotary International statement on Ukraine conflict
It is a tragic and sad time for the people of Ukraine and the world.
At Rotary, we are deeply concerned by the deteriorating situation in Ukraine and the escalating loss of life and humanitarian hardship there. Continued military action against Ukraine will not only devastate the region, but also risk spreading tragic consequences across Europe and the world.
As one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, we have made peace the cornerstone of our global mission. We join the international community in calling for an immediate cease fire, withdrawal of Russian forces, and a restoration of diplomatic efforts to resolve this conflict through dialogue.
In the past decade, Rotary clubs in Ukraine, Russia and nearby countries have transcended national differences and have actively engaged in peace-building projects to promote goodwill and to marshal assistance for the victims of war and violence. Today, our thoughts are with our fellow Rotary members and others in Ukraine coping with these tragic events. Rotary International will do everything in its power to bring aid, support and peace to the region.

Endicott Rotary helps local Boy Scout
John Larter collect retired American Flags
A note from John
I currently attend Owego Free Academy and I am seeking the rank of Eagle Scout. To achieve this distinguished rank, I must sponsor a project. The project I chose will be collecting old American flags for retirement. I will have different locations set up during the month of May to collect these flags, one being Endicott Rotary and one being the Owego VFW.  I will be conducting a retirement ceremony at Hickories Park in Owego which will take place around flag day, (June 14th.) I will also be offering 25-50 replacement flags to veterans at the ceremony.
In order to fund my project, I am having can and bottle drives on weekends at the Church of Christ in Endwell. This past Monday, I passed my Boy Scout Troop's board of review.  I am now awaiting to appear before the Boy Scout District Council for final approval.
