SRC’s Year in Pictures

Here’s a small slice of what went on in 2011 with members of the Southern Rensselaer County Rotary, recipients of their financial grants, and a few of our numerous fundraisers.


1 Bowl Over Polio

The Annis clan participated in the “Bowl Over Polio” fundraiser at Spare Time Family Fun Center in East Greenbush, then took off for a few years living in Sweden. Gee, Ron, we didn’t think your bowling was that embarassing.


Our first CPR training workshop drew plenty of medical personnel, teachers and others to what we hope will become an annual event that will improve the community’s quality of life.

3 Rotary Run

Runners of all ages took part in the 32nd annual Rotary Run, competing in the 1K,  5K, 5-mile and One-Lap-Wonder divisions.

4 Little Brook

Our club provided a $2,500 grant to the Little Brook equine rescue and human therapy program at the Columbia County facility.

5 Dog Rescue

Wendy Guntert of the Peaceable Kingdom Animal Rescue program was the recipient of several carloads of animal food, blankets, toys and other materials from the club.

6 Xmas Party

The annual Holiday Party was an evening of fun and fellowship at the Forth residence once again.

7 Coat Drive

The SRC Club was at the forefront of raising money for winter coats for schoolchildren in Schoharie County who lost possessions in weather-related disasters. Here, cartons of coats are unloaded for distribution at Schoharie Central.

And, as the year played out, we completed an ambitious program to collect toys for children in Staten Island who lost homes, possession, schools and sometimes entire neighborhoods to Superstorm Sandy. Last Sunday, we delivered more than 750 toys to the Marine Corps League on Staten Island for distribution.


8 Biker

And, finally, the intrepid Charlie Foote was among an international group of Rotary motorcyclists who raised funds by riding to the Rotary International Convention in New Orleans.
