To start 2016 the Members were visited by the Rotary District 7090 District Governor Dr. Kevin Crosby.
We were able to discuss the vision for the District and the goals of the Club. Our Club is very grateful to DG Kevin for his continued support of our unique “Roundabout” concept allowing us to serve the Buffalo Niagara Region.
On January 30th the Club will visit Rotary Rink in Downtown Buffalo for our January Social. Check our Club calendar for more information.
This Halloween season the Roundabout Rotary Buffalo Niagara joined up with the Rotary Club of Amherst to volunteer at the Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village (formerly the Amherst Museum)’s annual Halloween Trick or Treat in their historic 1800’s village. The Club worked at the recently Christened “Rotary Pavilion” which was sponsored and re-roofed by the Rotary Clubs of Amherst and Williamsville. The pavilion was originally built in the 1980’s by the now defunct Rotary Club of Amherst North and was restored by area clubs to continue that Club’s legacy.
Members of our Club and friends worked Saturday night (with Amherst taking over Friday) to hand out candy to nearly 1000 children and families who joined this safe trick or treat event.
This is the second year the Amherst Rotary has worked this event and they are happy to have the Executive Director of the BNHV as a Member to continue to support the relationship that Club has had with “the Village”.
