Our club has rescheduled the 383 Highway Cleanup between Foxy’s and Wheatland Center Road for next Tuesday, May 3rd at 5:00 PM. Again, weather permitting. But, hey, April will be over and May will be dryer and more like the Spring we all love. So, if you see us along the road, give a honk and say hello.
Well, due to the thunderstorms, we had to cancel our road cleanup. It will be rescheduled, so watch for us out on the road. We all love this community and enjoy keeping our little stretch of road “picked up” for all of you!
This evening (April 25th), weather permitting, we will be walking Highway 383 between Foxy’s and Wheatland Center Road picking up trash along the side of the road. This is one of our community service projects. Honk your horn to say hello as you drive by. 🙂

Last night (April 12th) was another great night at Scottsville Rotary. We always have a great time … the best food ever, fellowship beyond compare, and such interesting programs … not to mention the charitable work our club and Rotary International worldwide does to enhance the lives of others in our community and in our world, which adds to our commitment to world peace and understanding.
Our program last night was on the MicroBrewery at the Genesee Country Village and Museum. Our program speaker was Chuck LeCount from the Village Museum. He gave us a complete, albeit brief as it needed to be, of brewing and the Walter Grieves Brewery at the Village Museum. It was sooooooo interesting.
We have programs like this at every meeting in addition to the good food, fellowship, and good works. We’d love to have you join us. We meet at 6:15PM on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at the Genesee Country Inn in Caledonia. You’ll be glad you did!!!
The Scottsville Rotary Club is busy preparing for three important fundraisers. Fundraising is how we are able to support worthy, charitable projects in our schools, community, and beyond.
We are in the process of restoring a 1961 International Cub Cadet tractor. This model was the first year the Cub Cadet was produced. The pieces have all been located, sanded, and now at Caledonia Diesel being painted. By the end of this first week of March, the tractor will be restored and ready to show. Our club will be selling raffle tickets through the summer ending at the Alexander Gas & Steam show the first week in September. For more information or tickets, contact Dave McGaffick (889-3762 or 764-1805).
July 17th will be the Gordie Howe Memorial Golf Tournament to be held at the Wildwood Country Club in Rush. We’re looking for golfers. You can gather your own foursome or we’ll put you in with other that are signing up as individuals. For more information, contact Richard Nereau (346-7384 or 490-5789).
The Scottsville Summerfest will be August 20th. Nice to think about summer after the winter we’re experiencing. The Scottsville Rotary Club is taking over the organizational management of the Summerfest with assistance from the Village of Scottsville. We’re looking forward to a great Summerfest and hope to help it expand. For more information, contact Glenn Balch (889-1526 or 330-5576 or Sharlene Reeves 243-2009 or 748-1045). We’ll see you there!
We had a great program at our Rotary meeting this evening. Eileen Hansen joined us from St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Scottsville. She spoke to us about a comfort care home that will be housed on the second floor of the St. Mary’s rectory. Plans are underway but there is still much to do. Renovation of the second floor will take approximately $170,000 and then the comfort care home will need to be funded at approximately $120,000 per year. The facility will have two “comfort care” rooms and the plans are amazing.
There is much fundraising to be accomplished and many volunteers are and will be needed. This is a wonderful project. Keep it in your prayers and help where you can.
