A big 'Thank you!' to Kinney Drugs in Dryden for hosting the collection and  to all who dropped off items.
 
On Tuesday, 24 November Dryden Rotary club members collected  6 large bags of warm outerwear to be sorted and distributed to needy folks in Tompkins and Tioga Counties. They also disassembled the donations bin, took the clothes to the drop off, and returned the collection bin to the barn where it will await next year's collection! Sorry, no photos, maybe next year!
The collection of warm winter clothing is underway, ending November 23
 
Kinney Drugs in Dryden is one of 20 collection sites around Tompkins County. Donations of clean new or gently used winter clothing will be gratefully collected, sorted, and distributed by volunteers from a number of organizations lead by the Ithaca Rotary Club along with the Dryden and Trumansburg Rotary Clubs; Cornell University; Finger Lakes ReUse; and Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga. 
 
The familiar “red box” collection bins can be found at locations around Tompkins County, including: Agway True Value Home Center (Cayuga Mall), BorgWarner Morse Systems (Warren Rd.), CFCU Community Credit Union (Main Branches), Island Health & Fitness (Taughannock Blvd. and Community Corners), Kendal at Ithaca, Mama Goose (609 W. Clinton St. starting Nov 1), P&C Fresh, Tops Friendly Market (2300 N. Triphammer Rd.), Wegmans, YMCA, and in Trumansburg, the Shur-Save and St. James Catholic Church. 
 
The donated clothing is distributed by Catholic Charities of Tompkins/Tioga free of charge to individuals who need such items for the winter months. Distribution will take place November 9 – 20 (Monday–Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM).
 
All winter clothing in good repair is accepted. There is a special need for children’s and larger-sized outerwear (2X and up) and large-sized boots (13 and up), as well as coats, snow pants and boots; blankets; and hats, scarves, and mittens for all. Each article of clothing donated should be new or gently used, and clean for future recipients.  Note that the emphasis is on outerwear!

Despite the forecast of fog the morning was the start of a glorious fall day!  Sunny and in the upper 40’s.
 
Lining up for the 9:00 AM start were 31 runners, mostly women. At the starting whistle 20 folks headed off for 10 k by turning immediately right onto the Schug trail. This took them ‘out and back’ to where they would continue around Dryden Lake chasing the 11 runners doing the 5k.
 
Dogs and kids were the order of the day with 7 and 8 years old completing the 10 k!
 
A great big thank you to all of the runners and our sponsors.   More information about the race (Map, Results, Sponsors, etc) can be found here.
Come to Clark's between 10:00 and 2:00 for some fine BBQ'd chicken!
 
Funds from these event support our Youth Exchange Program, provide dictionaries to all 3rd grade students in the Dryden School District, send 2 or 3 High School Rotary Youth Leadership Awardees' to a 4 day camp, supplement our annual donations to 3 food pantries, sand other good Rotary works.

Our club was honored this morning with the visit of Pvt Robert Nobles, 508th PIR Co C.(Part of the famed 82nd Airborne). Bob, who lives in Ithaca, was a POW after parachuting behind German lines and fighting on D-Day 75 years ago.

The service that men like Bob performed for the world should never be forgotten!

As part of the Ithaca Rotary Club’s "Share the Warmth" clothing drive, the Rotary Club of Dryden is sponsoring a drop off box at the Dryden Community Center Café, 1 West Main Street, Dryden.
 
The red wooden box will be there from Saturday 03, Nov thru Wednesday, 12 Dec
 
All winter clothing in good repair is accepted. There is a special need for larger-sized clothing (2X and up) and large-sized boots (13 and up), as well as coats, snow pants, boots, hats, scarves, gloves, and mittens for all—and blankets. Each article of clothing donated should be new or gently used, and clean for future recipients.
 
Finger Lakes ReUse collects the items for sorting and Catholic Charities, which serves all of Tompkins County, then distributes the items.
 
“Share the Warmth” began in Ithaca 25 years ago but has extended to Trumansburg and now to Dryden with the support of local business, colleges, and Rotary clubs.
Despite the rain and cool temperatures we has a field of 42 runners on Saturday.  In the 10k there were 18 runners with 24 taking on the 5k loop around the Dryden Lake.
 
Thanks to all our sponsors and runners. The funds will be used to support Dryden Rotary's local and international projects.

The first 'occasional' joint meeting of the Dryden and Groton Rotary clubs was held at the Dryden Community Center Cafe.  The Dryden club provided the location and logistical assistance while Groton acted as the 'host' providing a dinner of chicken casserole, tossed salad, rolls, soda, and great desserts!
 
From 6:00 to 7:00 folks were able to socialize and enjoy dinner.  At 7:00 each club took about 10 minutes to cover any business and tell the other club about what they are doing.  Dryden is pushing sign-ups for 2 days of Salvation Army bell ringing while Groton is working on their  Hurricane Heroes which involves their community and grade school students in fund raising for school libraries affected by recent hurricanes in Florida,Texas, and possibly Puerto Rico. All the dinner fees and both club's happy dollars for the evening were donated to the cause for a total of $172.
 
Foundation Area Director Evan Kurtz presented Ben Curtis, Groton President, with the Groton club's award from the recent  Foundation Dinner for $100 per capita giving to the Rotary Foundation in 16-17.
 
Sadly Dryden's speaker, Jon Helsiva, last years Dryden exchange student to Germany, was ill so the rest of the evening was spent socializing, not that Rotarians mind that!
 
There was talk of 'doing this again' as all enjoyed the evening so stay tuned for the next 'occasional' joint Dryden/Groton joint meeting!
 
 
 
 
 
So this year we stepped up to provide ALL the gifts & food to a Dryden community family in need...
