185 people enjoyed the Annual Rotary Club of Lockport Valentine Raffle at the Terry’s Corner’s Fire 
Hall last week despite the cold weather. Rotary uses this major fundraiser to fund scholarships for 
high school students and additional service programs. Photos: Chairman Mike Norris kicks things 
off; Rotary exchange students with Rotarian Janet Walker helped sell raffle tickets; MC Eric Connor 
charms the audience; District Governor Jack Amico shares a few words and Sheriff Voutour auctions 
off prizes ably assisted by Brian Sibiga.
 
The 185 attendance figure (203 tickets sold), dollars raised through the basket raffle, split club, and 
auction were all-time records for the Valentine Raffle - nearly $16,000!  Thanks for the hard work and leadership 
(even while stress inducing), Chairman, Norris.  And, thanks to the many others on the 
committee and assisting during the evening.
 

 
What an incredible time it is to be a member of the Rotary Club of Lockport!  It is hard to believe how quickly this Rotary year has flown by.  We, as a club have had many successes, and reasons to rejoice.  The last quarter, we witnessed the fruition of some major Rotary funded projects:  the ground breaking ceremony for the Salvation Army’s new additional facilities that included and Rotarians Jose SantiagoDan Wilson, Mayor Anne McCaffrey, and other dignitaries …. the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Culinary Training Center, that included Rotarians Dave Kinyon, of the Town of Lockport IDA, Mayor McCaffrey and myself, as both President of our Lockport Rotary, and as a board member of the YWCA, in addition to several dignitaries and politicians…... It was wonderful to see the glittering new Rotary funded kitchen equipment and to meet some of the participants in the culinary program…..Our club hosted the annual State of the City Address and listened to an excellent presentation from Rotarian Mayor McCaffrey…
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Rotary membership, worldwide, seems stuck at 1.2 million, losing members in the US and regaining to this level - where we were in 2003.  Let's not take ourselves for granted, Lockport! We need a self-conscious look at ourselves...even when we are thriving.
 
 
 
The ever-growing Rotary Club of Lockport took a field trip for its December 16th meeting. The new Cornerstone Ice Arena wowed members and guests with its two NHL-sized ice rinks, spectator seating for 620 and its Performance Training Center.
The YWCA Niagara Culinary Program, which Rotary assisted in its capital funding early this year, served an excellent Noon-time meal
 
The $2 million Capital Campaign underway will complete funding by the Grigg-Lewis Foundation and the State of New York.

The Rotary Club of Lockport has had a wonderful first quarter for the 2014-15 Rotary year.  In this past quarter, we inducted two new Rotary Club members as a Business Class membership, and had two new individuals apply for Rotary Club membership. Our Giving Committee arranged for us to purchase the dining room set for the new Homeless Veterans facilities, and we as Club participated in the popular “Ice Bucket Challenge” to raise funds for ALS.  Several of our club members sold special edition newspapers on streets throughout the city on “Make a Difference Day” to raise funds for the United Way.  We worked to revitalize our committees, and have nearly 100% of membership signed up for at least one committee.


 

 
 
 

Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 32,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.

Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.

The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is a not for profit corporation that promotes world understanding through international humanitarian service programs and educational and cultural exchanges. It is supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and others who share its vision of a better world. Since 1947, the Foundation has awarded more than US$1.1 billion in humanitarian and educational grants, which are initiated and administered by local Rotary clubs and districts.

The Rotary Club of Lockport was chartered on May 1, 1919 with Charles A. Upson elected as the first club president and George C. Lewis elected as secretary. The club started with 25 charter members and grew to over 70 members within two years. Currently the club has over 50 members.
