|Helping out for Thanksgiving||Posted by Carrie Hernandez||on Nov 21, 2016||
This morning was the meeting most of our members look forward too all year. We packed 35 boxes full with everything a family would need for a Thanksgiving dinner. We include gift cards so they can buy a turkey, boxes of stuffing, rolls, canned vegetables, cranberry sauce, potatoes, pies, cookies, and so much more.
We were able to pack 9 boxes for families in need at Matthew Patterson Elementary school and 26 to Putnam Community Action Program.
ALso, this past weekend, we participated in Putnam CAP's THanksgiving Weekend county wide food drive. Members from our club and our Interact club volunteered at Putnam Lake Market in Patterson and Kobackers in Brewster. We were pleased to find out when we dropped off the boxes this morning to Putnam CAP, that the food drive had gone so well, they were able to add fresh carrots and celery to our boxes as well!
So thank you for supporting us, whether it's coming to a fundraiser or donating at the food drive this weekend. We are proud to work with our community to help those in need.
|Our Interact Club is now official!||Posted by Carrie Hernandez||on Nov 17, 2016||
The Patterson Rotary Club celebrated the chartering of their new Patterson Interact Club. Interact is a branch of Rotary that teens from the ages of 12-18 can join. They do service projects in their community and around the world and learn how to live our motto, Service Above Self. We are so proud of these kids. We currently have students from 4 different schools, Brewster, Carmel, Pawling and The Wooster School in Danbury, CT. In just a few sort weeks, these kids and learned about each other and how to be a team. We asked them to bring one service project idea to a meeting and these amazing kids came up with over 20!
We have also be lucky enough to have a couple of kids who aren't quite old enough to join Interact, but want to do good, so we are also in the process of starting an EarlyAct club.
If you have a child that wants to get involved, send our advisers an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

One record previously held by Oprah Winfrey audience members was broken when 340 Rotarians climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge at one time. The Rotarians simultaneously broke another record by flying the most country flags from the bridge.
