Rotary Club of Grand Island, New York

 
Rotary encourages New Members to bring new ideas, new challenges, and move the Club forward with new energy. New Member, Maria DelSignore, with a long interest in students and reading, plus roots in Niagara Falls, NY, thought Grand Island Rotary could help Niagara Falls public schools improve their library resources. She was told there were matching grants from Rotary International available to Improve Literacy - just submit a grant application! But how? We don't know - haven't done it - why don't you investigate! She did / she succeeded (yes, it took effort and some mis-steps), soon a Club commitment of $1500 was doubled with Rotary International funds; students at the Geraldine Mann School in the LaSalle District of Niagara Falls now have a large shelf of age-appropriate books.
