HONORING ROTARY DISTRICT 7150 OF CENTRAL NEW YORK
HON. JOHN KATKO
of new york
in the house of representatives
Thursday, March 16, 2017
Mr. KATKO. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor of Rotary District 7150
of Central New York as it hosts Rotary International President-Elect
Ian Riseley of Australia.
This weekend, Rotary International President-Elect Riseley will
address incoming club presidents at the Multi-District President-Elect
Training Seminar and People of Action Dinner in my district in
Syracuse, New York. I am proud to see local members of Rotary District
7150 of Central New York honored during this, the centennial of the
Rotary International Foundation.
Rotary International is home to more than 35,000 clubs worldwide,
including 43 clubs in District 7150 of Central New York. The Rotary's
mission of “service above self” is exemplified in our local Rotary
Clubs' work assisting veterans in need, recognizing the hard work and
success of high school students, restoring our prized parks and
waterways, and partnering with local food pantries to reduce hunger
throughout the 24th District.
With over 1,200 Rotary members locally, Central New York is a better
place because of the work these individuals do for our community. I
applaud the members of Rotary District 7150 of Central New York for
their service, fellowship, and passion.
