A BIG THANK YOU to all the incredible volunteers who helped make this 15th year's Dam Duck Race our most successful ever!
Glorious weather, crowds of people from near and far, great food, a beer garden, a bucking bronco, a money cube, great prizes, and of course, our special favorite lemonade stand, this takes our annual biggest fundraiser to a whole new level of success. It couldn't happen without you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
 
 
The much-needed storage shed on the grounds of the Shipman Youth Center, is now complete thanks to a few highly dedicated volunteers.
A BIG thank you to Randy Quayle, Bob Hanna, Gene Genegal, Mary Liz Alexander & Bill Barnes.
We will now have a permanent home for all our Rotary items that need storing throughout the year.
Ducks are warm and dry!

My Rotary journey started in 1987 when I joined the Schenectady-East Rotary club.

Over the past 30 years, I've visited over 100 different clubs on four continents. Some visits were organized to engage other clubs in a project my club was spearheading while other visits were associated with my various roles as Membership Chair and Area Governor. Or, they were just a simple visit when my wife, Suzanne, and I were on vacation. Read more...

The youngest member of the Lake Placid Rotary, Holly Erenstone, received her official member's badge from Gene Gengel, Martha Spear, and Bob Hanna.
 
Our November 2017 Trivia night was the biggest ever. Grossed over $, 4000 with 21 teams. It takes a lot of Participation by Rotary members (and some spouses) to put it on. A big Thank YOU TO ALL, with extra Congrats to MaryLiz & Sean.
