The Stories of Corning Rotary
The Corning Rotary Club invites the community to register for the second annual “0.0K Race for Literacy” to be held Friday, March 31, 2017 at the Southeastern Steuben County Library, Nasser Civic Center Plaza, Corning, NY.

Bib pickup and pre-race refreshments will be available beginning at 6:00 p.m. The race starts at 6:30 p.m., with the post-race party including food, beverages and a cash bar immediately following.

Please visit runreg.com/corningrotary to register for this fun event while at the same time supporting a worthy cause. Registration fee is $25 for adults 19 and over, or $10 for youth 13-18. Children under 13 are free, but must be accompanied by an adult. Strollers are welcome. The first 100 registrants will receive exclusive 0.0K-branded swag.

Proceeds will benefit the Corning Rotary Club’s Literacy Initiative. Beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, the Club “adopted” the incoming Kindergarten class at Corning’s Winfield Street Elementary School. Over the course of three years, each student is receiving one book a month to keep, helping to develop a love for reading along with skills in speech, communication, logical thinking, language, improved concentration, and focus.

You can be a part of building a strong future for these students by registering for this unique event. For more information, please email: rotary0k@gmail.com or call (607) 936-3713 X 205.

About Camp STAR

 

Camp STAR is a week-long camp for children, ages 6 through 12, with a physical or developmental disability that might keep them from enjoying a typical camping experience.

 

The camp was founded in 1963 and is sponsored by 11 Rotary Clubs from the Southern Tier of New York State including the Bath, Canisteo, Corning, Chemung Sunrise, Elmira, Elmira Heights, Hammondsport, Hornell, Horseheads, Prattsburgh and Watkins-Montour Rotary Clubs.

The camp is housed at the peaceful, rural setting that is Watson Homestead.

 

For more information, please visit the Camp STAR website at: http://www.campstar.org/.

     The Corning Rotary Club raised over $4,700 for local youth literacy programs at its inaugural “0.0K Race for Literacy”. The “race” was held on Friday, April 1, 2016 at the Southeast Steuben County Library, Nasser Civic Center Plaza, in Corning, NY. 

 

All proceeds will benefit the Corning Rotary Club’s Literacy Initiative. Beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, the Club “adopted” the incoming Kindergarten class at Corning’s Winfield Street Elementary School. Over the course of three years, each student will receive one book a month to keep, helping them develop a love for reading along with skills in speech, communication, logical thinking, language, improved concentration, and focus.

 

The event began with a short jog around the Plaza, followed by a complimentary buffet dinner and beverages. Jen Batzing, principal of the Winfield Street Elementary School, was the keynote speaker. Children enjoyed several special activities at the Library, including an obstacle course and movie. All participants received “swag bags” including a limited-edition “0.0K”-themed pint glass or water bottle.

 

Given the success of the event, Corning Rotary plans to host the 0.0K race as an annual fundraiser.

The Corning Rotary Club of Corning announced that it is once again awarding financial scholarships to outstanding high school seniors in the greater Corning area.

 

“We are delighted to be able to offer these valuable scholarships again this year,” says Dr. Geraldine Wolfe, Corning Rotary board member and member of the Scholarship Committee. “It is important to recognize and reward our local high school and Corning Community College students with scholarships in honor of their commitment and dedication to community service right here in the Corning area.”

 

To be eligible, seniors must graduate in June 2016 and must enter a continuing education school program of two or more years by the fall of 2016. The scholarships are also available to second-year students at Corning Community College who are continuing their education at a four-year institution. Although scholarship amounts vary from year to year, in the past awards of up to $1,000 have been granted to scholarship winners.

 

The primary criteria for selection are a student’s demonstrated commitment to community service during his/her high school or college years, together with acceptance into a continuing education program of the student’s choice.

  

Applications are available at Corning Rotary website.  Just click HERE.  Applications are also available in the guidance offices of all local Corning-area high schools, and at Corning Community College. APPLICATIONS MUST BE POSTMARKED BY APRIL 29, 2016.

 

All applications will be reviewed and selections made entirely at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee of the Rotary Club of Corning. Application finalists may be interviewed by the Committee.  Scholarship awards will be announced by early June 2016. 

 

Questions may be directed to an applicant’s high school guidance office.
