Rotary Club of Grand Island, New York

Pleasant summer picnic meetings of GI Rotary are not just for enjoyment – active, service-minded students were honored and heard from at their most recent picnic meeting. Olivia Turck received Scholarship Check from Chairman Mike Lockett (over 55 years we have presented High School Scholarships); she aims for a Physician Assistant career, starting at Daemen College. Unfortunately our other Scholarship winner Jacob Masucci could not attend. Another excellent High School student and member of Interact (Rotary Service Club at H.S.): Grace Federico described the exciting / challenging / thought-provoking weekend she spent at ‘SLAPSHOT’ (Student Leadership Award Program for Students High On Training) an experience sponsored by US and Canadian District 7090 Rotary Clubs in Ancaster, Ontario. Her glowing words further our commitment to that great program. Grand Island Rotary is proud of its support, both currently and in years past, of youth excellence at Grand Island High School. OK, there is excellent socializing around the pool and under the trees, also!
