  • Community Service Honorees select their Charities.  The East Islip Soccer Club has selected the Islip Breast Cancer Coalition while Mr. Frazer selected a charity for Brain Aneurysm research.   Great job!!
  • The Gift of Life Dinner was May 7th – looks like a great time was had by all.  To see the pictures click…

  • Making a difference around the world – The Rotary Haiti Project is going strong.  People in a Haiti town now have clean water thanks to Rotary.  George Soloman who has been to Haiti will be coming to speak to our club soon to give us an update.
  • RYLA campout was in Riverhead- the Dorothy Flint 4H Club.  It was a great weekend!  Some of the RYLA students will be coming on May 21st to speak to us about their experience.  Please if you can come to our meeting and show your support, it would be greatly appreciated.  It is another great Rotary program.
  • Karen reported at the board meeting that the Interact Club has raised about $1000 in their Bowling event and they are also working to clean up our community, like the East Islip Beach.  Their next project is to collect character Band-Aids for pediatric care.  Please bring character Band-Aids to the May 21st meeting to show your support.    
  • Karen Moss also reported that the Rotary scholarships of $750 each are in process.  We have selected the four Interact students – two from Islip and two from East Islip – to receive this year’s Rotary scholarships.  Eric is kind enough to deliver the scholarships to the students at their school event.
  • Still buzzing with BeesWell Veteran Stoves help homeless Vets make food and keep warm.  Shannon Burbage and her fellow Ronkonkoma Rotarian, Ron paid us another visit. They gave us an update on the wonderful program they started.  Our club and our own Rotarians have pledge hundreds of dollars to buy more stoves to help our veterans- to date we have purchased 115 stoves for homeless Veterans. There is a local need for approximately 2000 stoves per month.  In the Summer months, the need will only increase.   If you would like to donate to buy a BeesWell stove for a veteran, please speak to Bob or Tony.  
  • Islip Arts Council – visit their home  to see the great programs they are working on.  See what Spring events are around the corner!
  • Thank you Dennis for helping with the happy golf balls – short for happy dollars and golf balls.


Special Guests:  We welcomed guest Spyros Krokidis who made his third meeting and will be inducted next week. Congrats Spyros!! If you can invite a business friend to Rotary maybe we can increase membership.  All are welcome.
