Our Buffalo Rotary Foundation/Club partnered with two other Rotary Clubs, the Minneapolis City of Lakes Rotary Club, and St. Cloud Rotary Club, to send school supplies down to Guatemala for the Common Hope students.
There is a team in Guatemala right now, and they will deliver some of these supplies. They sent us a link below to follow their trip through their photo diary.

Wow!!! That is all I have to say... well almost all I have to say! Congratulations to the bounce back project for such a successful program, and such great publicity for our City, the Bounce Back Project, and the Buffalo Police!

Today Buffalo Rotary with Toys for Tots distributed toys to 270 families, providing toys for roughly 650 children in the Buffalo and Montrose area! It was a fun day, and a success! Thank you to all that helped with distribution, sorting, counting toys, shopping, delivering boxes, and every other task that was needed to make this wonderful event happen! A special thanks to Jean, our Toys for Tots Coordinator that has put countless hours into this event, we couldn't do it without you!
And Oh, What A Night it was!!! This year's annual Buffalo Rotary Car Raffle Fundraiser was filled with disco balls, platform shoes, and bell-bottom pants. Our members were able to sell all 400 tickets, making the evening a successful sold-out event.
The Car Raffle Fundraiser remains to be the biggest fundraising event for the Buffalo Rotary. 100% of all funds raised at the event are donated back to our local and international communities. Through this fundraiser, we are able to to help programs, such as: Toys For Tots, Buffalo Food Shelf, Beds For Kids, Local school scholarships, Adopt A Family, Concerts in the Park, Fishing Klinic for Kids, Wright County Safe Communities, Mentorship Programs, Instrument Trail in the Park, Timber Bay, Capable Partners, Let's Go Fishing, Student Exchange Program, and many more community projects.
We appreciate all of the volunteers who made this night so fantastic. Extra special thanks to Pat Michalicek, Shawn Corbin, and Scott Goodmanson for their work in planning and executing the evening.
Congratulations to the seven winners who all shared a piece of the $10,000 prize, taking home $1,428.57 each.
What a great day of service by Buffalo Rotarians and our families, this past Friday, July 17th!
A very special thank you to Mark Stevens, Yasmin Lee, Al Carroll-Pezzella, Tom Hanson, Jake Twaddle, Ann Dirks and Sally Stevens.
Mark and Yasmin drove the Beds for Kids trailer to Annandale where four children received new beds, set up by Al, Tom, Jake, Mark & Yasmin. After a quick lunch, Mark & Yasmin met up with Sally & Ann to load up the Buffalo Food Shelf truck with Roger & Tim, and head over to share hundreds of pounds of food with Park Lane Apartments residents and anyone else interested. Thank you to all for your service to our community and fellow residents!

Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...

Arch Klumph’s hometown raises over $2 million through centennial celebration
Rotary members in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, celebrated 100 years of The Rotary Foundation on 23 October with a banquet and a concert by The Cleveland Orchestra that have so far raised more than $2.1 million for the Foundation's next century of good work. Arch Klumph, a Cleveland Rotarian, planted the seed for The Rotary Foundation in 1917, with his idea of having an endowment fund dedicated to "doing good in the world." Today's District 6630 leaders thought that a concert was a fitting way to honor Klumph and mark the centennial because of Klumph's love of music. Klumph performed in several...
