Why join Rotary? What good can I do? What does Patterson Rotary do with the money they raise?
There are a lot of reasons why you shouldn’t show up at our 7:30AM meetings on Tuesdays. You could sleep in after all! Perhaps you are just to busy.
But when you give that hour a week you become part of a infectious group that strives to be People of Action. If that sounds like something of interest - take a look at what we did for our community during our Fall Giveaway.
Our small club is all about making our community stronger. To do that, we vet qualified groups that help our community and neighbors. These are all staffed by special people that want to help and feed the homeless in our community, provide resources for battered women, offer camp scholarships for those that can’t afford it, help our environment, stock a food pantry and so much more. Our giveaway may indeed touch thousands of lives in our community. Because of the funds we raise through our events, The Patterson Rotary was able to provide funds to the following groups:
Carmel FBLA
George Fisher Middle School "Camp Herrlich" Scholarships
Hospice Care of Putnam/Visiting Nurses
Love Holds Life
Matthew's Hearts of Hope
Matthew Patterson Elementary School "Camp Herrlich" *5 students*
Patterson Community Center Church Food Pantry
Putnam County Sheriff's Cadets
Putnam Dental Associates - Putnam Dental Missions
Putnam Ridge Christmas Gifts
Xeroderma Pigmentosum - Camp Sundown
We are proud to provide support to these many great causes and the people they help. Just as important to us is to keep our community involved. Come join us for breakfast on Tuesday’s! If you can’t - contact us at pattersonrotaryny@gmail.com to see what you can do to help. It takes a lot of effort to organize, staff and make our great events happen to raise money for these very worthy causes.
We are an all volunteer organization that wants to do good things and are always looking for new members to help!
Congratulations to all recipients of our Fall Giveaway. We thank you for all that you do for our community.
