When the Rotary Club of Hamburg met for its first “live” meeting following many months of Zoom meetings due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was great to spend time together in person, but it was made even more special with the induction of a new member, Colleen Gibbons. Shown at the
meeting of May 4 at Pegasus Restaurant are from left, Rotary President John Nowak, Ms. Gibbons, who works for the New York State Supreme Court, and Tim Straube, membership chair. The Rotary Club of Hamburg was founded in 1942 and is one of many Rotary clubs nationwide and throughout the world. Rotary is a service organization that provides “Service Above Self” through many diverse local and global projects and charitable efforts. A notable recent project was the donation of three bicycle repair stations in the Village of Hamburg. The club also coordinates the Warm the Children winter clothing drive and is one of four service organizations that organizes the annual BurgerFest in the village.
