LeRotary Notes President Scott opened the meeting with announce- ments. This past weekend Car- ol Wolfe and Martha Bailey attended the Rotary District Conference held in Canada at a beautiful resort in Niaga- ra-on-Lake. The weekend was fun-filled with a Friday night cocktail hour, spa treatments, visiting the casino and a won- derful gala dinner where fellow Rotarians had a great time of fellowship and networking. Bob Bennett announced this Sat- urday, November 4th at 10:30 a.m. will be the set-up for Rota- ry’s appliance raffle being held on Sunday. President Scott an- nounced that the annual Salva- tion Army bell ringing at Tops is tentatively scheduled for Friday, December 8th, all day, with a backup date of December 15th. Anil Sawhney announced the Eastern Cities dinner will be held December 6th and Tracy Ford will be taking the names of those interested in attend- ing. David Grayson encouraged members to visit the website of Rotary International for in- formation about the Rotary Foundation and Every Rotarian Every Year giving. Randy Vink announced the annual Area 14 Rotary Christmas party will be held January 5th, more infor- mation to come. President Scott asked members to review the proposed changes to the Rotary constitution and that a vote on the changes will be held in the near future. We had several birth- day celebrations for the month of November. A wonderful ren- dition of Home on the Range was sung to Tony Gugino, Lynn Belluscio and Bob Boyce. Eric Fix and Merritt Holley missed a meeting but were excused by assisting Sam Vagg at the Interact meetings held at LeRoy High School. Tracy Ford missed a meeting but was excused having spent a significant amount of time organizing the raffle ticket sales. David Grayson missed a meeting but was excused by attending a Rotary Board meet- ing. Larry Boylan explained his missed meeting was due to visiting family in Arizona. As a side note, Larry was shocked to learn that fellow Rotarian Tom McGinnis’ reputation extends to the great state of Arizona; hav- ing met a former New Yorker at his granddaughter’s school function who spoke highly of Tom. Fines were at a min- imum but Bob Sullivan was called on to name the former players of our LeRoy Knights 2002 football team running in for a touchdown in a video clip shown by President Scott from a LeRoy Sectional game at Uni- versity of Rochester. By the way, the touchdown was none other than fellow Rotarian Jake Whiting. Bob Bennett was also called out and paid a fine for a member of the Business Coun- cil found in a picture wearing less than professional footwear. Thank you social media! For our program to- day, Bob Sullivan introduced Chris Hayward, LeRoy police department’s Chief of Police, as our presenter. Mr. Hayward ad- dressed the concerns regarding the high turnover rate of police officers in LeRoy. Mr. Hayward gave a brief history of his years of service, beginning in 2002 when he began as acting Chief of Police. He explained from a budget standpoint how difficult it was to maintain 12 fulltime police officers in LeRoy. Mr. Hayward also explained the constraints the department was under by being required to hir- ing using the Civil Service pro- cess. It wasn’t until 2012 when Governor Cuomo signed into law the change of hiring prac- tices, eliminated the need to hire though Civil Service. Mr. Hay- ward explained due to the part- time status of our officers, and the intense background investi- gations that the village under- takes; we are losing our officers to surrounding police depart- ments who can offer full-time positions. Since 2012, LeRoy has lost 17 officers, 15 of which secured full-time positions in other police departments. Mr. Hayward expressed his confi- dence in LeRoy’s current offi- cers and stated he enjoys work- ing with the men and women in the department.
