President Christine called the meeting to order with The Pledge and 4-Way test, along with introduction of guests, Karen Samis, guest speaker for Walk of Hope and Colton Halladay, son of members Jeff and Dasha Halladay. Announcements included Mary Young-Murray with an update on Team Rotary for the Walk of Hope which took placeAugust 13th from 7pm to 11pm at Hartwood Park. The team sold cookies which were donated by Mary Margaret Ripley and raised $168 from those sales on top of the team members being sponsored. Martha Bailey gave a great rundown of multiple events. First about the Club’s annual Backpack Club food collection event at Save-A-Lot parking lot on Tuesday August 23rd from 5pm to 7pm. Rotary will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Backpack Club and personal care items for Knights Closet which can be dropped off at the big blue Rotary tent in the parking lot that night. Next Martha announced the LeRoy Moose’s annual Chicken BBQ on August 27th. They will be selling tickets for the BBQ at the Farmers Market August 20th or any member can be contacted for tickets. Lastly, Martha gave a mention to the LeRoy Business Council’s Golf Tournament on September 13th. Anyone that would like to participate or donate to the golf tournament can contact Martha or any other LBC member for more details. President Christine asked if there was anyone that wanted to fess up for not being at the last meeting and surprisingly quite a few members actually fessed up! Dasha Halladay said they were away in Ocean City for their annual vacation, Jim Bonacquisti was in Myrtle Beach with his family but unfortunately it was a bit of a disaster because everyone was sick for most of it, Carol Wolfe said she just didn’t want to get out of bed that early, and Mike Tucci said he had no glamourous excuse like the others and just had a sales meeting. Dasha and Jim each got fined $5 for their vacations. The rest of the fining was quick. Mary Margaret Ripley was asked how the Farmers Market was going. She updated the Club on a few new vendors and was fined $5 for it and Ben Deragon was fined $5 for he and wife Erin’s recent baby showers. Mrs. Deragon is more than ready for baby to come and let’s just say all the women of the Club are ready to give advice and snippets of encouragement. Guest speaker for the day was Karen Samis, organizer of the Walk of Hope, which benefits Genesee Cancer Assistance. In 2005 Karen’s mother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Her mother’s struggle and eventual death from the disease spurred Karen on to participate in the Relay for Life in her mother’s home state of Connecticut. Eventually Karen got involved with Relay for Life locally in Rochester and in Batavia and now is the organizer for the event in LeRoy. The first year the event took place in LeRoy it raised $46,000 for the American Cancer Society. The event has since evolved into The Walk of Hope which now benefits Genesee Cancer Assistance. After two years LeRotary Notes of not having the event due to Covid, it was back this year as a mini-event. The event included activities for all ages. The first lap of the walk/run is for survivors, the second lap is for caregivers and the third lap is for everyone. There is also a luminary lap later in the evening that honors loved ones lost or currently battling the disease. They are always looking for volunteers and participants. The date is already set for next year, August 12, 2023. For more info about the Walk of Hope check out their Facebook page at Walk of Hope – LeRoy. President Christine thanked the guests and all in attendance. Without anything else for the good of Rotary the meeting was adjourned.
