Tim Straube Induction                                 

The Rotary Club of Hamburg inducted Tim Straube July 30 into the service organization that is part of a worldwide body. Rotary President Lisa Avery, right, conducted the ceremonies welcoming Straube, an accountant with the Erie County Health Department and member of Cairde, a popular local band. Also on hand for the induction of the new member was Bob Artis, left, district governor of Rotary International District 7090, which includes parts of Western New York and Southern Ontario, Canada. Tim was sponsored by his wife, Rotarian Diana Straube, next to him. Artis met with the club’s Board of Trustees before the regular meeting and was pleased to meet Dale Stanley, the club’s Rotary Foundation Chair  who confirmed that the Hamburg Club will support the Rotary International Foundation with a donation of $1,500 for this year. Rotary supports projects on the local, national and international level. The Hamburg club was founded 77 years ago. The club coordinates Warm the Children, provides college scholarships to Hamburg and Frontier high school students and is one of the four service organizations that coordinates the Burger Fest each July. The Rotary Club of Hamburg meets Tuesday evenings at 6 p.m. at JP Fitzgerald’s Restaurant in the Village of Hamburg.
