Rotary District 7255 is an amazing District. Filled with members who are intriguing, enthusiastic, and honestly want to “Make a Difference” in our world at large.
     I have learned so much. I have visited the Hauppauge RC who does amazing projects with literacy, the Smithtown RC who plan on planting the most tree’s in our District for R.I. President Ian Risely. Our Patchogue RC will bring Camp Pa Qua Tuck’s playground project closer to fruition.  The Moriches RC, exemplifies the meaning of “Service above Self” with their tireless efforts in building the new handicap playground. WE will get this done! The Middle Island RC, has a park dedicated to Veterans, they are the little club that does. Huntington RC is moving and shaking with their water project in Haiti. The Farmingdale Breakfast Club does a “doggy parade” that brings awareness to our 4 footed friends, with donations to shelters, and rescued animals. Southampton RC along with Hampton Bays RC have installed life rings in the Shinnecock Canal, known to take lives of those who fall in, now have life saving devises to ensure safety. Great Neck RC does a Veterans Concert of classical music with fellow Rotarians, and musicians who must “make the cut” to play.  Oyster Bay RC has the largest Oyster Festival on Long Island; Hicksville South puts over 650 back packs together for distribution all over Long Island. Mineola/Garden City RC serves Veterans, and the needy with ROTACARE, a project that is non-profit, for people who cannot afford medical care. Farmingdale lunch RC services the local food pantries, and Mercy First. Melville RC brings dignity to children who are run a way’s and orphaned.
     Besides the installations, board meetings, and fundraisers, the month has been packed with inspiring, creative, energizing members who are heartfelt and encouraging to our plight to “Making a Difference.”
