Thank you for the tremendous honor of serving as your President for the 2018-19 Rotary year. I’ve been a proud member of this club since 1988, among the first 10 women in the club. I had the distinction of becoming the first Rotarian in Rochester to have a baby.  Our son, Alex, was born in 1989.  During my soon-to-be 30 years in Rotary, I’ve valued the friendships and connections to the community that I’ve made in Rotary.  Outside of work and family responsibilities, Rotary provided the way to widen my circle of contacts and get involved in the community.

This is an open invitation to all Rotarians and friends of Rotary. Our program will be, "Secrets of the City," presented by Steve Lange, Oddchester Columnist and Rochester Magazine Editor.
Way back when, several years ago when the Kwik Trip Scrip program was rolled out by then-Rotarian Brian Welke, I’ll admit – I didn’t get it!  In fact, for probably close to two years, I didn’t get it.  I would buy a $100 card to keep as a “rainy day” card for when money was tight, and I needed gas.
 
It never occurred to me that this was a way to pre-pay for my gas each month while helping Rotary do good things at the same time.  With little or no effort on my part, frankly!
 
Then one day, Elizabeth Karsell and I were talking about the program, she said, “You know, every time you buy a card, Rotary gets 5% right off the top. And another 5% if you buy something in the store.” Or something along those lines.
 
And the light bulb clicked on! 
Would you consider opening your home and your heart to a Rotary Youth Exchange student?
 
Our incoming 2018-19 Rotary Youth Exchange Student:
  • Maria is from Brazil
  • Loves sports, traveling and making new friends
  • Wants to study chemistry in college
  • Is empathetic, sociable and driven
  • Will attend Lourdes High School
You will notice a slight increase in dues this year, which is the first dues increase since 2009. The impact on individual members is small – if you take advantage of the Early Bird Discount and pay dues by cash or check, the dues increase amounts to $20 annually for members age 31+ and even less for members 30 and younger.
