History

For fifty-three years, the Nanuet Rotary has operated as a small club with a big heart! The Nanuet Rotary club is nestled within the suburban town of clarkstown in the county of Rockland, approximately thirty miles north of New York city. however, the club’s impact has reached far beyond the hamlet of Nanuet. Past and present club members represent many walks of life, including business owners, educators, practitioners of medicine, bankers, insurance agents, accountants, realtors, and representatives of non- profit organizations. Women were inducted into the club in the 1990s and have served in numerous leadership roles since that time.

Since 1956, the Nanuet Rotary club has embraced

its Service above Self motto through activities within the community, regionally, and internationally. Outreach to children has been a prior- ity, as evidenced by annual sponsorship of athletic pro- grams, the Nanuet School District’s Family Resource center, Rockland children’s Psychiatric center, children of Promise Stables equestri- an program for individuals with disabilities, People-to- People holiday wish-fulfill- ment projects, purchasing day planners for local high school students, and do- nating money to provide wigs for youth undergoing chemotherapy.

The Nanuet Rotary club is proud of its service to the community, as well. club members periodically deliver meals for Meals-on-Wheels, an organization founded by

the club’s first female presi- dent, Shelly Berger. Finan- cial support is provided annually for this organiza- tion, which now prepares and delivers hundreds of meals daily to homebound residents across Rockland county. The club also pro- vides financial support to our local ambulance corps and fire department. The club was instrumental in supporting the purchase of a fire training trailer which enables school children to practice responses to smoke and fire emergencies. at holiday time, gifts are dis- tributed to developmentally disabled residents of group homes within the commu- nity. club presence is vis- ible in the community via flag displays for federal hol- idays, holiday scenes to dec- orate the town, and adopt-

a-Road clean-up activities. in celebration of Rotary international’s centenni- al, a Landscape for Learning outdoor education nature trail was funded for Nanu- et School District students, in conjunction with a local eagle Scout project.

The Nanuet Rotary club proudly awards two scholar- ships annually to graduating high school seniors. Funds are distributed through the Nanuet Rotary Schol- arship Foundation, inc. in the amounts of $6,000 for a student who will go on to a four-year institution and $500 for a student who will study at a two-year in- stitution. although the Scholarship Foundation is a separate entity from the club itself, many members serve as officers or board members.
