Past President, Jackie Walker (left) and President David Greenfield (right) introduce new member, # 69, Eric Lindquist, at today's Rotary luncheon. We also heard a very poignant autobiographic presentation by Darlene DeCarlo as our speaker. Contact any Rotarian if you'd like to know aout our speakers and about Rotary Club of Lockport's presence in our community.

Three levels of classes made up of Rotarians from District 7090 met at Niagara County Community College on Saturday, March 19th. Third year graduates received certificates from District Governor, Kevin Crosby (far left), including Lockport's Ellen Schratz (2nd from left) and David Greenfield (far right). Sorry I don't have the others' names.


April is the Kindest Month representatives Ellen Martin and Mollie Roland visited our Rotary Club of Lockport lunch today to encourage us all to do a kindness each day during April. Their target is at least 20,400 kindnesses during the month of April in Lockport.

Do something nice today. It could become a habit. See More Information at:


Speakers at Rotary Club of Lockport recent Noontime meetings: Arba Cooper updated us, today, on SCORE the organization of business leadership volunteers that assists small businesses getting started. We also had a brief plug for the April 2nd performance of the West Point Glee Club at the Palace Theater in Lockport.

Jackie Davis introduced new member, Joyce Miles, Managing Editor, Lockport Union Sun and Journal several weeks ago (We sort of like to spread these postings out when we have a lot of them). We have not presumed that Joyce will serve on the Public Image Committee...although she would be welcome!

Anna Adej-Barrett, PhD spoke to Lockport Rotary, today. A native of Ghana and a product of a humble beginning in the capital city, Accra, she teaches Spanish at Lockport High School. However, today she spoke on the topic "The 3 C's of Building Effective Relationships," her consulting firm: International Training and Consulting Services. Get in touch with Rotary by coming to one of our Noontime meetings and catch one of our exciting speakers. President Greenfield will be happy to speak to you at 716-471-2585.

Rotary Club of Lockport inducted two new members today(1/19/16): Carrie Wittenzellner (right) (Sponsor, Pat Barrows) and Paul McAfee (left) (transfer). They pose, here, with President David Greenfield (center). We hope to utilize their many talents in "being a gift to the world."

Vince Davis II, son of Jackie Davis, Rotary Club of Lockport Past President, spoke to our club in honor of Martin Luther King. An excellent public speaker, Vince drew some apt analogies to the process of cleaning a garage and the progress this country is making with race relations and our learning as a society. Vince is president of Buffalo Rotoract.

Nick Sinatra, a property developer who sees promise in Lockport, spoke to us at this week's Rotary meeting held at Noon at the Lockport Town and Country Club on Tuesday.

Rotarian, Cynthia Cotten and exchange student, Aude Kinet did a last minute bell-ringing stint on December 23rd at the Lockport location of Niagara Produce. Thanks, Jody Chesko-Sparks, President, Niagara Produce and Rotarian - for allowing our solicitation at your two locations!

"Can't wait to start a new beautiful journey in a different country and a different year. Feliz ano nova!" ...from Lesley Huntington, Rotary Club of Lockport's exchange student to Brazil 

Art Wing, St. Catherines, Ontario, Rotary District 7090 Rotary Foundation committee member spoke at the December 22nd meeting of Rotary Club of Lockport. One impressive factoid shared that makes one proud to contribute to the Foundation is that in the past 10 years or so, 1.5 billion children have been vaccinated for polio, worldwide through funding from Rotary and other important players!

Brandi Lyness,SSVF Case Manager (left) and Anita L. Harutjunian, Outreach & Engagement Specialist Niagara County (right) were guest speakers at today's Rotary meeting representing the Veterans One-stop Center of Western New York, Buffalo, NY.

Rotarian, Steve Sinclair and chair of the Lockport High School-hosted basketball tournament, December 4th and 5th, presents the first place trophy to Lavette Warren (Hey...the host school is allowed to win!). Thanks, Ryan Schoenfeld, for the photo.

(Left to right): Dan Wilson, Chair of the Salvation Army Support Committee for Rotary Club of Lockport, Rotarian Dick Maigret, Jean Lowry (Rotarian Maynard Lowry's wife) and Sue Lougen pose by the red kettle at Tops on Transit Road in Lockport during a shift change last night. Rotary raises between $50,000 and $60,000 for Salvation Army. If you ever get tired of the ubiquitous red kettle solicitation that starts before Thanksgiving, know that funds raised in this way (outside of mail-in response) stay locally. It is heart warming to see people of limited means (presumably) put a few coins in and to hear testimonies about how a member was helped by the Salvation Army. Photo by volunteer, Paul Lehman

Monday's volunteer effort by Rotary Club of Lockport to cook turkeys and serve a meal at the Salvation Army in Lockport helped 95 visitors.
