January is Rotary Awareness Month

Despite the enormous good that Rotary does around the world, many folks (including in our own community) remain unaware of what Rotary is and what we do.

As Rotarians or Friends of Rotary, we should be spreading the word about our Service Above Self, to increase awareness and to encourage others to join us in these efforts.  Are YOU spreading the word?

Submitted by Rotary Readerboard Project Lead Jon Sole
After years of fundraising, discussing, convincing and now several weeks of actual construction, (see more background in the "ground breaking" piece below) the new Kingston Readerboard is up and running!  Led by KNK Rotary but a co-operative effort of many dedicated Kinstonians as well as our Port Commission,our Little City now has a great information-sharing bulletin board.  Groups wanting to run messages should contact the Port Office.  
Fellowship Chair Sondra Peters organized a great Holiday celebration last weekend at the Village Green Community Center. The party was well attended and as can be seen - Rotarians were in great spirits!  Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to you all.

Kingston Rotarians celebrated another successful project benefitting our community.
Monday afternoon, Oct 30, two benches were installed near the playground area at Kingston’s Village Green Park.  The project was spearheaded by Rotary’s Community Affairs Committee and it’s chair, Jim Dixon.  Dixon says the project could not have been done without the assistance of local contractor Matt House and Kiwanian Dave Wetter.  “Matt is, the hero on this thing,” Dixon said, speaking of House.  “He donated 65-bags of concrete to pour the pads and the bench supports.  He designed the supports and the bench architecture, and he delivered all the materials for the work party to install today.  This community owes a lot to Matt House, and Kiwanian Dave Wetter who engineered the new drinking fountain (below), and was a huge help with both projects.”  Every time you drive past the park and see mothers, dads, grandmas and grandpas watching their kids enjoy the playground from the comfort of the new benches, think of Rotary.  It is the mission of Rotary to bring together resources to improve our community, one project at a time.
