Save the date! Saturday, July 25, 2015:
Rotary at the Renegades

Rev. Fred Cartier reports in from Cancun, Mexico:
"Had a wonderful breakfast with Burt. Our main discussion involved what's happening in Red Hook and about the weather down here, sunny, hot, few clouds for three weeks. Fred"

This just in!
The 2015 - 2016 Rotary theme is "Be a Gift to the World."

Snow cancelation policy - If the Red Hook Schools are closed, our meeting is canceled. If only delayed, then we will meet at 7:30 a.m. as usual. Call (845) 758- 2241 for school closing or delay information.


Save the date!

Our club could be twice as good if we had twice as many members. That can happen if each of us recruits a new member this year. Propose a new member today!
