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

At Cafe Spiga today, President Rob welcomed 13 members and 3 guests, Will Dzvonar, Ronkonkoma Rotarian Michael Barba, and speaker for the day, Gary Gudzik, from the Port Jeff Masonic Lodge.
 
By now, you should have received Mike Burghardt's email regarding this year's holiday gift program.  The program, which is coordinated through the Open Cupboard and benefits local children in need, involves our members purchasing gifts for specific children (and being reimbursed for their purchases, if they wish), and then attending the Annual Gift Wrapping Party at Port Jeff High School on December 1st.  If you plan to participate, contact Mike at mburghardt@northwell.edu to obtain the names and relevant information about the youngsters who will be receiving your gifts.  We are reminded that each wrapped gift must include the recipient's name, assigned number, and also a description of what the gift is.
 
Jen proclaimed this past Sunday's Annual Fall Clean Up at Camp Pa-qua-tuck to have been a phenomenal success.  Over 50 volunteers - Rotarians, Interactors, Boy Scouts, and others- worked effectively together with the camp staff and had a great time moving leaves and then enjoying the luncheon meal together. (Kudos to the Mather Crew who donated and cooked the food: Nancy, Wayne, & Mike B.!)  So successful was this venture that Jen will be working on setting up a Winter Clean Up at the camp with a date TBA.
 
Sharon noted that Vicki, who presides over The Open Cupboard, plans to give out $50 Kohl's gift certificates  to her clientele so that they can choose and purchase their own clothing items for Christmas, which is why we will be purchasing mostly toys requested by the youth who will receive our wrapped gifts.  Sharon also brought samples of Christmas-themed face masks and scarves hand made by community members Bente and Flemming Videback. They created 1,000 pieces since the early part of Covid-19 and are donating them to the Open Cupboard.
 
Bob announced that our club has so far donated $13,600 to The Open Cupboard (I believe that this is in addition to the monthly food & goods contributions collected every 2nd Tuesday of the month.)  Wow!
