The delivery of dictionaries in the North Rockland Central School District is an event to attend!  The excitement and gratitude from the students is a day of fulfillment and joy for the members of the Rotary Club of North Rockland.  Of course, Boulder Bird having signed each and every one of the children's books leaves the children with a great day to remember their "great" book!
 

 
 
 
 
                 PRESS RELEASE
                                                                
       NORTH  ROCKLAND  ROTARY  90th  INSTALLATION  DINNER
 Hudson Water Club
 606 Beach Road, West Haverstraw, NY 10993
Wednesday, June 24, 2015
6:00p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
 
On Wednesday, June 24th, 2015, the North Rockland Rotary will say good-bye to President Altea Gonnella and install a new President, Doreen Makara, and her new Rotary Board.
These Rotarians will lead the organization with the Rotary International theme of “BE A Gift To The World”.   Rotarians around the world foster peace in many ways and work both internationally and in their local community to bring health, safety and human dignity to the communities they serve. The Rotarian motto is Service Above Self and, through service, people become more tolerant of their differences.     
As to the history concerning women in Rotary, it was only in 1990 that Rotary voted to appoint its first female President of Rotary International.  The struggle to permit women into Rotary ended on May 4, 1987 when the United States Supreme Court held that they could not exclude women from membership based upon gender. 
In 1994, the North Rockland Rotary had its first women President, Pat Gordon and several women have since served as President.
Rotary is a global network of community volunteers and it is the largest and most influential international humanitarian service organizations worldwide. Founded in Chicago on February 23, 1905, today over 1.2 million members belong to 33,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas. 
It is “ Be a Gift to The World” that will lead the way this year for all Rotarians around the world.
For more information about ROTARY contact Doreen Makara, President of the North Rockland Rotary at P.O. Box 10, Garnerville, NY 10923, or at Dmakara@mtb.com or (845) 354-6009.

Wonderful memories were captured during our 34th Annual Fundraising Spaghetti Dinner held on Friday, October 24, 2014, at the Central Presbyterian Church in Haverstraw, New York.  The community sponsors and the community at large came out to support our fundraising event.  The success of the dinner allows our club to establish Rotary Scholarships to graduates of the North Rockland High School.  All of our members worked very hard to bring this dinner with all its trimmings to North Rockland.  We thank our entire community and sponsors for all their help.
