More talk, more planning, more fun as Twin Bridges wants to make 2023 even better than 2022


Twin Bridges has revamped its meeting schedule for the new year and will now meet every Thursday at noon for lunch at Grecian Gardens in Halfmoon as well as the second Tuesday of the month at 6 pm at Delmonico's in Clifton Park.


Previously, the Club met twice a month at lunch time and once a month in the evening. This expansion of meetings will make it easier to schedule guest speakers, provide additional time for planning upcoming events and, hopefully, even greater enthusiasm and camaraderie.


The home page of this website always has an "Upcoming Events" box listing the next two or three meetings and events.


The new year is a great time to join Rotary and especially Twin Bridges. If you're about ready to apply for membership, the TBR Fact Sheet and Membership Application are here for you.


If you would like to talk to some members and learn more about Rotary, make plans to  attend a lunch or evening meeting as our guest! Give us a call at 518-328-8358 or email us at info@twinbridgesrotary.com. Rotary is a great way to have an impact on your community and have some fun at the same time!

Twin Bridges will be part of the new CNY Rotary


Three upstate Rotary districts (7150, 7170, and 7190), covering much of upstate New York, will become one district as of July 1, 2024. This is not being looked at as a as a "merger," but rather as an opportunity to create something new, called CNY Rotary. Below is a message to members from Melissa Ward-Rathbun, CNY Rotary Committee Chair.
 
"The three districts have put together a steering committee that consists of past, current and incoming leaders from each who are overseeing this transition. That committee then formed working groups that are tasked with developing new committees for key areas of support like Membership, Public Image, and Foundation. Each group is made up of representatives from each of the districts who have experience and knowledge about serving our clubs. The goal for all the groups, and ultimately the goal for the CNY Rotary steering committee, is to create a leadership team that can provide the support, resources, and training all clubs in this new region will need.
 
If you want to learn more about where we are so far in the creation of the new CNY Rotary, you are invited to attend our upcoming town hall meetings. There is still plenty of work to be done and all members are invited to get involved!
 
You will have the opportunity to learn more about the direction CNY Rotary is heading.  We also encourage you to visit the CNY Rotary Website and visit our FAQ, and our Facebook page.  We look forward to addressing any questions you may have.

"Selecting a Corporate Membership in Twin Bridges Rotary has been a great option for us at CAPTAIN Community Human Services. We share the membership among 3 of our senior staff and therefore find it easy to keep up with the commitment to attend meetings. At Twin Bridges our staff have had many opportunities to give back to the community through Rotary service activities. And, Rotary has been a wonderful supporter of CAPTAIN’s programs."

Rotary's disaster response


With more than 1.2 million members worldwide, Rotarians are on the ground and ready to take action to help communities recover when disasters strike.


Rotary members and The Rotary Foundation play a unique role in disaster recovery and rebuilding efforts. Working closely with our partner ShelterBox and other organizations that specialize in disaster relief, Rotary members lead projects to support every phase of a community's recovery.


Rotary supports three phases of relief:

  • Immediate response: Our local clubs and partners immediately offer helping hands and supplies.
  • Short-term assistance: Our clubs and districts help affected communities wherever we can through funds and materials to re-establish day-to-day operations.
  • Long-term rebuilding: Our clubs plan and implement projects that rebuild affected communities.

To donate go to:  https://my.rotary.org/en/donate and choose Disaster Response Fund.
Rotary efforts include aid to Ukrainian refugees.

Twin Bridges has made a connection with Amazon whereby anyone can help Twin Bridges by making their normal purchases. And it will not cost anything extra.
