The Stories of Corning Rotary
The Rotary Club of Corning, NY was honored to welcome Mike Hankey, Deputy Consul General at the U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem as guest speaker at the Club’s August 30, 2018 meeting. Hankey has been in the U.S. Foreign Service since 2001, and has served as Deputy Consul General in Jerusalem since July 2017. Prior to his current role he served as Consul General at the U.S. Consulate General in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, where he led an interagency team promoting economic, commercial and security ties in the heart of the Saudi oil and petrochemical industry.
The Rotary Club of Corning, NY is proud to announce its newest Paul Harris Fellow, Pauline Emery. 

Rotarians designate a Paul Harris Fellow to recognize a person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives and mission of the Rotary Foundation, to build world understanding and peace. Ms. Emery is the Director of the Southeast Steuben County Library. As a Rotarian, she has served on the International Committee for several years and has led the planning and organizing of the Club’s annual International Dinner, raising $17,000-$20,000 each year for humanitarian projects around the world. She also leads the Club’s Literacy Committee and has spearheaded Rotary’s support of student reading programs at both Winfield Street and William E. Severn elementary schools in the Corning-Painted Post Area School District. Emery has also been involved in various theatrical productions at Winfield School and in the community and has helped organize the annual Scripps Regional Spelling Bee. Emery currently serves on the Corning Rotary Board of Directors as the International Committee Chair. 
Prior to the Board of Education meeting on September 19, 2018, representatives of the Rotary Club of Corning, The First Presbyterian Church of Corning, and First Heritage Federal Credit Union presented the Corning-
Painted Post Area School District with a ͞big check͟ symbolizing $39,000 in combined donations made to date in support of a kindergarten through second grade literacy initiative. 

Since the 2015-16 school year, Rotary has donated $24,000, First Presbyterian Church has donated $9,000, and First Heritage has donated $6,000 to the program, which has helped support reading at Winfield Street Elementary School and more recently, William E. Severn Elementary School. 
Inspired by research drawing a line between lifetime success and the ability to read by the third grade, the Corning Rotary Club began a literacy initiative with Winfield School in the 2015-2016 school year, making a three-year commitment to adopt a Kindergarten class and follow it through to the second grade, providing one book per child per month to read with parents, and volunteering to read with the students at the School. The results of that initiative are now in.
 
The percentage of students in the adopted cohort at Winfield School meeting the NWEA-established Norm Score and their NWEA-projected growth target from fall to winter 2017 far exceeded established reading standards.

Corning Rotarians joined local Boy Scout Troop 2 to plant six apple trees in the Kate Danforth Memorial Community Garden Saturday, May 5, 2018.
 
The project was Corning Rotary’s response to Rotary International President H.S. Riseley’s challenge for every Rotary Club to plant trees this Rotary year, which began July 1, 2017.
 Several Corning Rotarians and Horseheads High School Interact Students recently returned from an International Service Trip to the community of Talnique, El Salvador, a small village approximately 23 kilometers west of San Salvador. Sponsored by the Noroeste Rotary Club of San Salvador, El Salvador, the goal of this service trip was to build homes for five multigenerational families in what is known as the “100 House Rotary Village”.
 
Corning Rotary Club’s annual International Dinner raised the funds that allowed the club to donate $3,500 in 2017 and 2018 to pay for the supplies to build one of the needed homes. The Club also donated half the cost of one home in 2015, with the other half being covered by donations from individual Rotarians. 
The Corning Rotary Club would like to thank the community for supporting the 18th Annual International Dinner, on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at the Radisson Hotel Corning, 125 Denison Parkway East, Corning, NY. The International Dinner is Corning Rotary’s signature event and largest fundraiser of the year. This year the event raised nearly $27,000, with proceeds going to support international projects benefiting education, disaster relief, and world community needs.
The Corning Rotary Club is pleased to announce its newest Paul Harris Fellow, Sam Sanfratello.
 
Rotarians designate a Paul Harris Fellow to recognize a person whose life demonstrates a shared purpose with the objectives and mission of the Rotary Foundation, to build world understanding and peace. Mr. Sanfratello earned a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from RIT and a Master’s in Education and Educational Administration from SUNY Brockport.
