UPDATE ON COVID-19
The impact of COVID-19 continues to be felt broadly across all of our communities.  The Rotary Club of LeRoy is committed to finding ways to help our neighbors through this pandemic.  If you have ideas on how we can support the community please see a Rotarian or email us at executives@leroyrotary.org.  Together, we can make a difference.
 
 

Welcome to the Rotary Club of LeRoy

 
The Rotary Club of LeRoy's mission is to provide members and community stakeholders the opportunity to serve others, benefitting the local and international community while promoting high ethical standards, fellowship and goodwill worldwide.

It is the Rotary International vision statement that perhaps says it best "Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change - across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
 
Rotarians are a collection of people of action, and we share a strong sense of purpose.  In troubled times such as these, Rotarians will rise and see the needs of their community and the world.  It is with that sense of purpose that the Rotary Club of LeRoy has begun the "Rotary Community Reinvestment Fund."
 
The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are being felt across the globe, but signs of the effects can be seen in our community.  In the interest of public safety, nonessential local businesses have been forced to close.
 
The impact of these closures may not be evident to the naked eye, but the ramifications are impacting our friends and neighbors who own these businesses.  As both state and national levels begin to restart the economy, those same businesses that have supported Le Royans in the past will need our support more than ever.
 
The Community Reinvestment Fund will take donations made by local individuals and families, and direct them to the LeRoy businesses most in need.  The Rotary Club of LeRoy, which has served the community for more than 75 years, will oversee the collection and distribution of funds.
 
There will be a short application for businesses to complete, and a committee of Rotarians will review applications and submit approved applications to the Board of Directors.  The form is available on our website.  Fellow Rotarians and their families are not eligible to receive funds through the process.
 
Individuals or businesses interested in supporting our community can made contributions by mailing a check to: Rotary Club of LeRoy, Attn: Community Reinvestment Fund, P.O. Box 141, LeRoy, NY 14482.
 
Any questions can be directed to Jim Ellison (717) 503-5749, or: jdellison@gmail.com
 
The application can be found in About Us - Downloads in the toolbar found on this site.
As COVID-19 has changed the way we interact, the Rotary Club of LeRoy is finding new ways to stay connected.  The March Board Meeting was held via Google Hangouts as well as the most recent weekly meeting.  We'll continue to meet virtually as we work through the pandemic.
Please note that the Meat Raffle scheduled for Saturday, April 25th has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 13th.  All tickets will be honored on the new date.  We'll continue to provide updates as available.  Thanks!
The Rotary Club of LeRoy is continuing to look for ways to directly or indirectly support our communities during this trying time.  We are pleased to support Sara Kent of See Sara Stitch as she makes masks for a variety of local medical personnel and facilities.
LeRoy Rotary Community Kitchen was proud to serve 220 take out dinners to our community on March 24th as well as deliver 25 meals to homebound seniors.  We can't thank our AMAZING volunteers enough for all their hard work.  The LeRoy Rotary Community Kitchen provides a vital service to our community which can be felt more now than ever!
