Our first summer casual, hosted by Peter and Debbie Brown was a success. Members and guests dined poolside all while enjoying the great fellowship of Rotary.

The date of July 28, 2022 is still available for anyone wishing to host a summer casual dinner. In the event we do not have a host we are looking into the possibility of returning to Moscatiello’s Restaurant for one night, or meeting out for a drink at a local brewery.
Next week’s summer casual event will be hosted by Jim Leyhane and Roberto Martinez. Once again we are asking for a fee of $15 and an additional $5 for each guest, with a maximum of $20 per family. Next Thursday’s menu will feature the following: Filet Steaks, baked potatoes, vegetables, garlic bread and dessert. We ask guests to provide an appetizer. If you have not already signed up to attend please call 518-428-1732 or email Leyhane@aol.com to notify Jim that you plan on attending.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again on the 21st.
