Wednesday,15 November
 
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!

This year's winner was Dryden Food Pantry. Cindy Almendinger ran on their behalf and carted off $333.90 in food including and a couple frozen turkeys to be handed out at future Food Pantry giveaways.
 
Ticket sales grossed $1,267 with the net to be equally divided between the three food pantries in the Town of Dryden plus the Methodist Church Wednesday Community Dinner.
 
Thanks to all Rotarians who sold tickets and to Clark's for supporting this annual event.

2017 Food Run is in the books! Evan Kurtz 2017-11-03 04:00:00Z 0
Last Saturday was a perfect day for a run! It was mostly sunny and in the low 60’s. Well, by the end of the race it was warmer; it was pretty cool at the start!  We had 17 hardy and happy runners on the two courses. Ten ran the 5 k around Dryden Lake and seven others ran 10k by doing 5k on the Schug Trail before heading off around the lake.
 
The 5K overall winner was Matt Banazek and the 10k overall winner was Dean Russo
 
Start of the race!
 
 
For complete results please go to:  www.webscorer.com/race?raceid=118380
 
Many folks stayed until the end to cheer the other runners, enjoy light snacks, and chat with the volunteers and other finishers.
 
Thanks to all the volunteers and runners. We all are looking forward to 20 Oct 2018 to do this again!

Maryann Sumner spoke to the club providing interesting facts and stories of the Historical Society.
 
A small, but hardy, highway cleanup crew worked  2/3 of North Road.  Our club  has a commitment to pick up trach on that stretch twice a year...let's do better in the spring!
 
Evan & Tracy spent the day Saturday in Verona as part of the Rotary Leadership Institute faculty.  They helped District 7150 Rotarians discover more about themselves and Rotary. Members of our club should look towards 10 March to attend RLI in Owego.  It is certainly time well spent.

Our own YEP student Luana volunteered to 'run for the food' this year.  Aiden Payne, from the Dryden Kitchen Cupboard, was on hand to coach Luana on what they needed and to accept the food.  3 minutes and 4 carts later the total was $366 dollar  worth of food for the hungry.  Several Rotarians were on hand to help and to cheer on the event.  Our thanks to the folks at Clarks for their strong support and all the club members who helped.

At our monthly dinner meeting we were honored to have as our guest District 7170 Governor Pat Kriebel, her husband PDG Mark Kriebel, and our Assistant District Governor Jim Nunciato of the Cortland club.
 
Before Governor Pat gave her talk about her upcoming Rotary year she had the privilege helping induct our two newest members, Cathy Wakeman and Teri Tarshus.  If you haven't had the chance please be sure to welcome them next time you see them.
 
Governor Pat told us the Rotary theme for 14-15 is "Light up Rotary" and she provided pins for club members.  Her goals for the year are increased membership, increased Foundation giving, and increased attendance at District events.  These are goals we can all help with.
