Port Jeff Rotary Club is meeting online regularly and just started to meet in person in accordance with NYS guidelines. Please email us to join!
We hope that everyone remains vigilant and safe during this time.

Rob hosted today's meeting, which was a hybrid:  6 of our members attended in person at a bit after noon inside Cafe Spiga, while 10 attended via Zoom.  We also welcomed several guests via Zoom: Michael Mosca, Principal of Comsewogue HS; Panika Garg, Comsewogue's Most Motivated Student of the Month; and Kim Zettwoch, head of PJ Library's Children's Services, who is thinking of joining our club as a new member.
 
Judi thanked and praised our fellow-Rotarians who helped out at her 2 recent BSA events.  She announced that $120,000 was raised during the McMorris Walk at the BSA camp most recently.
 
Jen announced that this Saturday, 12/5, the Port Jeff Sta./Terryville Chamber of Commerce will host a Drive -Thru Santa Event, including holiday lights, photo taking, and a toy and food drive at The Train Car (corner of Rtes. 112 & Nesconset Hwy).  C'mon down!
 
Rebecca noted that the Greater PJ Chamber will host "No Touch Santa Events" in Chandler Square on these 3 Saturdays: 12/5, 12/12, and 12/19.
 
Deb reported that Comsewogue Public Library is asking for the donation of old (under 5 years old) Windows laptaps that will be cleaned and then used by students who need them.
 
Alyssa Pecorino, the Executive Director of Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck, has announced that a generous donor has stepped forward and awarded the Camp a $50,000 matching grant which covers donations received between now and December 31st.  If you haven't already given, you may do so via the camp's website: https://camppaquatuck.com/donate/.

Mike Mosca introduced 9th grade student Panika Garg, our Most Motivated Student of the Month honoree.  While an 8th grader, precocious Panika took Algebra II, typically an 11th grade course.  She is currently enrolled in AP Chemistry and other upper level math courses.  This year's course load includes Honors Global History, AP Statistics, French 2, and English 10 Honors.  She also finds time to play in the school's band.  And what does Panika want to do "when she grows up"?  She would like to have a major in the medical field, maybe surgery.
