Twin Bridges Rotary Club

Bringing in the new year!

Twin Bridges Rotary welcomed the new Rotary year with its annual Changeover Dinner at the end of June.

Held at the Edison Club in Rexford, the diner celebrated the achievements of the past year and looked forward to the new year under incoming President Dawn Vavala. The Board of Directors for the new year were inducted and the Rotarian of The Year Award was given to two outstanding members--Roni Basle and Debbie Spaner-Smith.

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."

Come join in a CNY Rotary Night at the ballpark

CNY Rotary Night at the ballpark will take place three times in July at three different ballparks. These are the first many outing the CYC leadership hopes to coordinate for those looking to get out and have some in-person fellowship.

A portion of the proceeds of each ticket sold will go to support CNY’s Youth Exchange Program. CNY President Lizzy Martin thanked Past District Governors Jeff Smith and Larry Jones who coordinated these special nights with the ball teams.

The three games are:

  • Friday, July 19 at the Syracuse Mets.
  • Saturday, July 20th at the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.
  • Thursday, July 25th at the Tri-City Valley Cats in Troy.

The cost to attend, both for the ticket and parking, is a bit different at each venue. Click here for details on each game and to get your tickets today. Martin will be at all three games, and looks forward to meeting and seeing as many members as possible. If you can attend, please wear something Rotary so it looks like a Rotary team.

Pete Bardunias, Vice President of the Capital Region Chamber of Commerce, spoke at a Twin Bridges meeting in July on how the Chamber and Twin Bridges can work together. Above, Pete is with Dawn Vavala, Twin Bridges President.
