Our annual Pancake Breakfast at American Legion Post 80 on Main Street in Binghamton, NY was a success in spite of the Big Snow Storm the day before.

The Pancake Breakfast included All-You-Can-Eat Pancakes, Scrambled Eggs, Sausages, Toast, Coffee, Tea, and Orange Juice for $6
 
We schedule our Breakfast on "Parade Day" in Binghamton to celebrate St. Patrick's Day (early) at the end location of the Parade.
We welcomed two new members to the Binghamton Breakfast Rotary Club.  Maxine Wright was sponsored by Jim Pudish.  Maxine has been a host to several Youth Exchange students over the years.  She works at Binghamton University.  We are very happy to have her join our club.  We also welcomed Dr. Mike Lischak sponsored by Toni Lehr.  Mike was a member of the Milwaukee Rotary Club and recently moved to the Binghamton Area to work at Lourdes Hospital.  We are happy Mike chose our club to transfer to.
 
As a celebration, the entire club participated in a sing-a-long with Jim Ford, including a song written by Jim Ford "Binghamton, NY"
 
 
Darlene had a wonderful weekend visit with Cara and her parents.  They visited the Cathedral in Cologne, and are pictured enjoying a beer and some hearty potato soup at a well known brewery.  
 
They spent time shopping in Dusseldorf, and sightseeing.  Cara is doing well in her studies, and just finished an 18 page term paper in English.  It counts for half her grade in English, and after proofreading it, I can assure the club it is college level work. 
The Binghamton Breakfast Club thanked Kate McHugh for her year as president and welcomed new President Darlene Croston.
 
The new officers for 2017-2018 are:
 
-President:  Darlene Croston
-President Elect: Dana Thurston
-Treasurer: Jim Pudish
-Secretary: Darrell Dennison
The Binghamton Breakfast Rotary Club took part in the Binghamton Rumble Ponies AA Baseball Game first ever Olympics event.  Our club took first place and money from the 50/50 raffle has been donated to our Foundation.  It was a great club event as we sold (100) tickets and the Binghamton Rumble Ponies donated $300 back to our club for our participation.
We had another successful Binghamton Parade Day Pancake Breakfast at the American Legion Post 80 on Main Street in Binghamton.  We had a lot of club support for this event on a cold day.  The warm food included: Pancakes, Sausages, Scrambled Eggs, Toast, Coffee, Tea, and Juice (All you can eat for $6!)  Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success!
The Binghamton Breakfast Club welcomed a new member to our club.  Jim Ford is a musician and is also playing piano at our Wednesday morning meetings.  We are very happy to have Jim join our club and share his music talent.
 
We were also very excited to receive an Emerald award from Rotary International Paul Harris Fellows for Bill Scheider.  Bill has been a very generous Rotarian and has been the club's treasurer for many years.  Bill also named Nick Seketa a Paul Harris Fellow this year.  Nick was involved with a Brooks BBQ Fundraiser for his church for years, and offered the Binghamton Breakfast Rotary Club this fundraiser.  This new fundraiser has made a large impact on our annual fundraising campaign.
We welcomed two new members to the Binghamton Breakfast Rotary Club on October 5, 2016.  We are happy to welcome Teri Chamberlin (Director of Rehabilitation) from A.V.R.E and Anthony Saccento (CFO) from A.V.R.E.
The Binghamton Breakfast Rotary Club welcomed a new member - Kathy Burns to our club.  Kathy is a Teacher at Chenango Valley School District.
 
We also recognized Paul Harris Fellow Bill Scheider with a Vintage Rotary Pin.
 
President Bill Phillips conducted the "Pass the Gavel" ceremony today to our new President:  Kate McHugh
The Binghamton Breakfast Rotary Club was treated to a nice breakfast and tour of the A.V.R.E. facility on Court Street in Binghamton.  The tour and program was very interesting for all to understand how A.V.R.E offers so many programs, services, and a work environment for people with vision loss.  Their mission is to create opportunities for success and independence with people who are blind or visually impaired.  A BIG thank you to Ken Fernald and his staff for a great breakfast and tour.
The Binghamton Breakfast Rotary members participated in a community project at the YMCA in Binghamton.  We helped paint the game room which is used by children during the after school program.  We painted two tones of blue in the room.
Our club members gathered to celebrate the holidays and to welcome our newest member Sean Pass.  We were also sad to see Barb Ligi leave our club as her career takes her out-of-town.  Her parents were part of the celebration.
The Binghamton Breakfast Rotary Club donated $200 in cash and over 60lbs of food to CHOW for the holiday food drive.  Thank you to everyone!

Our annual Pancake Breakfast will take place on Saturday, March 7th at 8:30am at the American Legion Post 80, on Main Street in Binghamton.  Everyone is welcome.
