The Rotary Club of Islip held an Autumn Rummage sale on the grounds of St. Mark's. Over the course of the sale, which ran from 9 till about 2:30, we had around twenty Rotarians help out setting up tables and all the sale items, pricing things, collecting money, helping customers, and then breaking down. It was a great event which earned the club just over $600! Though obviously it doesn't sound like a great deal of money, keep in mind that most items were priced under $5 or so, and at the end of the day, its $600 that the club did not have. Plus, many of us were able to get rid of stuff we've been wanting to get rid of for ages! The fellowship was fantastic, the weather was perfect, and we all had a great time. Thank you Liz for co-chairing this event, Father Rick for lending us the church grounds, and everyone else who particpated, whether it was for five minutes or for five hours!
 
 
 
District Governor visits us for multi-club meeting!
 
On Thursday September 10th, Islip Rotary joined with the Babylon, Sayville, Bay Shore, and Brentwood Rotary clubs to welcome District Governor Kamlesh Mehta at a special meeting held at the Irish Coffee Pub. With over 80 Rotarians in attendance, the DG spoke about the importance of being involved, the Foundation, and the upcoming district conference. It was a fantastic and informative meeting, and we thank the Pub for providing a great buffet lunch and the joint involvement of these other Rotary clubs!
 
 
 
As a change of pace, the Islip Rotary Club had a breakfast meeting down at Islip Beach! Overlooking the beautiful Great South Bay at an early hour, over 30 Rotarians and their guests enjoyed a delicious breakfast served by Sal and the staff of Bayside Cafe. Thank you Sue Zaccheo for organizing such a fantastic event! 
 
 
 

Breakfast meeting at Sunset Restaurant was a success!!

 
 
 

On Thursday August 6, Islip Rotary was visited by Matt DePace of GoHealth Urgent Care. Associated with North Shore LIJ, GoHealth are new, state of the art walk-in healthcare clinics that help alleviate the wait and frustration of a hospital emergency room experience. Matt then spoke about the social networking site LinkedIn. It was a great meeting attended by over 25 Rotarians- not bad for the middle of August!
