Anthony Hosmer, BOCES School Systems Library Coordinator, was our speaker today.

Like so many other institutions (and businesses), libraries have had to evolve to stay relevant - and they have.

Hosmer (second from the left) is shown here with our members (l-r) Alexandra, Eileen and Terry.

Our speaker today was Matt Shelley, CEO of Camp Venture.

Did you know that the "Just-A-Buck" store in Garnerville is theirs? Their clients work there, enjoying the benefits of a healthy work environment.

Our member, Cindy (shown here with Alexandra and Matt), who shops there regularly, didn't know - but said that it's the cleanest, friendliest store of it's kind!

Our good friend (and West Point-Highland Falls Rotarian) Bill Stone provided an insightful look into "policing the gates of West Point".

Bill, besides just being a really great guy and volunteer extraordinaire, is a retired Highland Falls Police Chief.

Bill (center) is with Alexandra and our member Barry.

Our program today was very special...

Our very own Eileen (far left) and Eloise (far right) shared with us the career of our late member, dear friend and their father, Adam Krainak.

Two Rotarians and retired Police Chiefs Frank Bailey (left - Ramapo Valley Rotary) and Bill Stone (West Point-Highland Falls Rotary) joined us to honor their fellow Rotarian and colleague.

Major Terry Shaffer, who provides us with our weekly invocation, had most of us fighting tears with his best "prayer" to date!
Today we learned about the 3-month young "Rockland County Business Journal" from Tina Traster, Editor and Publisher.

Check it out: www.rcbizjournal.com

Tina, center, is shown here with our Secretary, Ginny, and our Program Chair, Terry.

Our speaker today was Larry Singer, Immediate Past President of the Rockland Historical Society.

Thank you Larry for an informative talk!

After their presentation on our Colombia progrom, Alex and Nick (a/k/a Dr. Lindo) took a moment to pose with the best waiter ever!

Thank you Oscar for all your help!

Westchester Rotarian Aaron Soury (center), a Business Broker, gave us some great information this morning on selling your business in today's climate.

Aaron is also a frequent visitor at Rockland Rotary Means Business meetings.
"The Rotary Club of Clarkstown Sunrise was chartered in May, 1991 as an alternative to Rockland County’s luncheon meetings.   Still the only breakfast club in the county, Clarkstown Sunrise meets every Tuesday at 7:30am at the City Line Family Restaurant, New City.
 
Our current President, Alexandra Duenas, who was also President for the 2012-13 Rotary year, is serving the first of her two-year commitment to recreate the club and, in doing so, has created a renewed energy and enthusiasm.   Our twelve members have committed to the growth of our club and the good that we do – not only locally, but internationally.
 
We have collected “Suits for Soldiers”, provided funding to Rockland County’s Meals on Wheels, contributed to the Rotary Foundation and supported the End Polio Now campaign.   We are also continuing our commitment of sending students to RYLA – Rotary Youth Leadership Awards – a program designed to ensure that high school sophomores, who demonstrate leadership potential, will receive the training to ensure that they become leaders.   We also started “Rockland Rotary Means Business”.
 
We are very proud that we have created a new “signature project” – our “Suits for Soldiers Comedy Show” – which will debut on May 4, 2018 at the American Legion, New City.   In addition to continuing collecting business attire for our returning veterans looking to re-enter the workplace, proceeds of the show will go towards our international project – providing services to terminally ill children in Colombia (a program equivalent to “Make a Wish”).   A mere $9500.00 will support this program for an entire year!   Other Rotary clubs, and Rotarians individually, have committed to this project!
 
One of our newest members, Major Terry Schaeffer (Salvation Army), has committed to – and has done an amazing job – securing wonderful speakers for us every week.
 
Guests are always welcome to join us and to learn more about what being a Rotarian is all about.   Please call Nick Constantino, a former District Governor of Rotary International, (845-294-0123) for additional information.   You can also visit our website ~ www.ClarkstownSunriseRotary.com or our Facebook page ~ www.Facebook.com/ClarkstownSunriseRotary."
