District Oratorical Contest

We are proud to announce our Penfield Rotary sponsored student, Chloe Chen placed first in the competition. Our other Penfield Rotary sponsored student Callyn Sanderson also is eligible for a college scholarship.
Don Collins, the oratorical competition chair said the judging of the students was extremely difficult. All of the students who presented were professional and spoke very. Each student had a current and relevant message that showed how the Rotary Four Way Test was applicable to current society. 
Many thanks to the oratorical committee including Tara DuMont, Peggi Koch and Steve Brotzman for mentoring the students. It showed in their final performances..

August Service Project - Fill The Backpacks!

100 Bags Filled For Children at No. 54 School

Our August service project was collecting supplies for 100 children at No. 54 School in Rochester. Penfield Rotarians and friends scoured the area for enough notebooks, paper, pens, pencils, scissors, markers, folders, glue sticks,  erasers, rulers and water bottles to fill the bags. Members met at Harris Whalen Park for a socially distance sorting an filling meeting. The 'backpacks" were actually fabric bags with string pulls that can be carried as bags or used as back packs.  We have been donating school supplies for about 8 years. We started out with just about two boxes of supplies in 2012. Boy! Have we grown!!!  Thank-you for everyone's support!
