IN THE NEWS - MILLION MASK CHALLENGE 
It's Here! The Official "Million Mask Challenge Tour" Rotary Multi-District Documentary
We are so proud and happy to deliver to each of you the completed "Million Mask Challenge Tour" Rotary Multi-District Project Documentary. To say that this was a project of care, commitment, and compassion is an understatement. Each and every one of you played an outstanding role in delivering an unprecedented project. A project that was personal to our Rotary community in support of organizations, families, and children in need. Our hat is off to each and every one of you who led your Rotary District, Clubs, and your communities. You were responsible for marshaling Rotary resources and delivering over 5.5 million masks throughout the six-month distribution effort to those in critical need from Manhattan to Maine.
Over 500 Rotary Clubs in 11 Districts united more than 10,000 Rotarians across 7 states during the heart of the pandemic to deliver PPE face masks to save lives. Because that's what we do.
We began planning this project on August 2, 2020. And now, more than 24 months later, the work we have accomplished seems so relevant and impactful today.
Thank you for all of your hard work, and all you do for Rotary

We are beyond saddened to share the tremendous loss of a wonderful father, husband, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend, and Rotarian. 
The passing of Bill Bohn, President of the Huntington Club.
Bill Bohn 
December 12, 1953 - September 3, 2022
 
The wake will be held at 
M.A. Connell Funeral Home on Wednesday, September 7th from 2:00-4:00 and 6:00-9:00
 
Mass will be held at Saint Patrick’s Church in Huntington Village on Thursday, September 8th.
 
Bill truly found happiness in each day, and he will be missed by so many.
 
As James Wylie reminds us,
 
Life is short, and we do not have much time
to gladden the hearts of those who make the journey with us.
So, be swift to love, and make haste to be kind.
And the blessing of God, who made us, 
who loves us, and who travels with us,
be with you now and forever.
Amen
 
  
Sonia Saleh
