Chappaqua NY Rotary Club Pancake Breakfast Saturday May 14

Chappaqua NY Rotary Club Pancake Breakfast Saturday May 14

Most of us have a passing familiarity with Rotary International…we see the signs, telling us where they meet, we hear stories of events they hold, or projects they do, we may even recognize their motto-Service Above Self….but it all seems rather distant…until you actually meet and talk with some of them.

Through my association with Furniture Sharehouse, I have gotten to know several of the local groups, today I would like to give a shout out to the very fine folks of the Chappaqu Rotary, and ask for your support for their upcoming event. 

As an institution, Rotary International was the world’s first service club organization. Currently there are 1.2 millon members world-wide, in 33,ooo groups. 

They work at all levels-locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally-to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, and promote peace.

Eradicating polio is their #1 project, their united vision for the future.

To that end, all the different groups run various fund-raising projects to support these ventures, and this Saturday, you can help.

Believe it or not, all you have to do is show up and eat. 


 This Saturday, May 14, from 8am to 1pm, in the Parish Hall of  St. Mary the Virgin on Greeley Avenue, the Chappaqua Rotary will be hosting their annual Pancake Breakfast.  Tickets will be sold at the door, $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for kids and seniors.

Funds raised will be used to support  projects both near and far; among those in the former category are Westchester’s Interfaith Food Pantry, Food Bank for Westchester, the  Northern Westchester Shelter, and Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital.

To support YET ANOTHER very basic, very local  need, they will also be sponsoring a Blood Drive from 8:00 til 1:3o. Interested donors should contact John Erlich 914.602.3410. 

Here from last years’ event are at left Joe Sabalia, and current Club President Penny Paderewski, and at right, John Ehrlich.

Friendly faces, right??

 Go!! And bring friends!!  Please support these people who are so committed to supporting the rest of us.
