Shannon Karcher announced the success of the Election Night Spaghetti Dinner (November 3, 2020). “The Club served 154 meals.” She thanked the Rotarians who helped make the event a success. She also noted the generosity of community members who donated to help keep the event cost low. Shannon then announced we are live with the Holiday Decorating Contest.

The event will be streamed through Facebook Live on December 6, 2020. Jim Ellison reminded the club about Every Rotarian Every Year. Anyone who has questions can speak with Jim. Carol Wolfe announced there will be a box at the LeRoy Country Club starting next week to begin collecting items for the LeRoy Food Pantry. In addition, Christine Gephart spoke about the upcoming “Stuff the Cruiser”. Rotary Club of LeRoy will again partner with the LeRoy Police Department to make this event a success. The tentative date is November 21, 2020, from 10:00-2:00 pm. They are still waiting for confirmation on the location but are hoping to have Target Plaza in Batavia approved again. Missed meetings were recognized by President Mary Margaret included Nan Chiulli, Jeff Halladay, Jason Karcher, Greg Kellogg, Maria Valencia and Randy Vink. All had missed meetings but most were able to provide make-ups while others paid missed meeting fines. President Mary Margaret transitioned to the fining session where Martha Bailey was fined for participating in a pumpkin carving competition at work. Bob “Sully” Sullivan was fined for an article by President Mary Margaret located from 1978 when he won town justice with only a difference of about 60 votes from his competitor. Jason Karcher was fined for being an election poll worker and working early voting and election day. It was shared with the club that Greg Kellogg has been named as the new Chief of Police for the Village of LeRoy. He was fined accordingly. Today’s presentation was by Jamie Clark from LeRoy Central Schools. Mr. Clark shared how fall sports have been going in the midst of COVID-19. He discussed everything from face coverings to spectators. Mr. Clark spoke highly of how supportive the coaches, athletes, and families have been in making this season possible. Due to current stipulations the only sports being participated in currently are boy and girls soccer, cross-country, and a merged gymnastic team with Batavia City School District. Mr. Clark also stated they are still waiting to have guidance on the winter sports season which is slated to begin on November 30th. It should also be noted that the LeRoy Sports and Music Booster groups purchased the camera being used to stream the sporting events. Both of these groups rely heavily on concession sales and have not been able to sell concessions due to COVID-19. However, they purchased the camera to provide an opportunity for friends and family to continue to spectate the competitions. Thank you to Mr. Clark for a very informative program. President Mary Margaret adjourned the meeting at 1:00 pm with the ring of the bell.
