Message from the District Governor

Here is an excerpt from the latest message to members from Rotary District 7190 Governor Whitney Pangburn:

  • The latest topic on the transition to CNY Rotary:  operations and budget. A first draft of the operating budget was given out at President Elect Training in Syracuse and all current Presidents, President-Elects and Secretaries have received a copy of this budget by email. 

  • Club leadership is encouraged  to discuss the budget with their clubs over the coming month.  Ultimately, each club will cast a single vote (no later than May 1) in favor of or opposed to the budget.  

Several things stand out about the 2024-25 CNY budget: 

  • The District dues are $35 per member for next year, down $5 per member. 

  • Discretionary expenses for the President, President Elect and President Nominee are modest

  • District training expenses, especially Emerging Leader expenses, are robust.

  • There is a pretty significant expense allowance for Accounting Review. 

TBR is fundraising for Build a Bed project 

Twin Bridges is raising funds for its Build a Bed project. Working with Sleep in Heavenly Peace (, a national organization whose area chapter ( is based in Mechanicville, Twin Bridges will help build beds for area kids who don't have one. Included with the beds are new mattresses, pillows and bedding. The bed build is set for Saturday, April 27.

The major fundraising effort was a "calendar raffle" which was quite successful but still left the Club short of its goal. Now TBR is continuing its effort to raise money and is asking for donations, These kids need a bed--won't you help? Please take a moment during this season of giving to make a donation--fully tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

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."
