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.
Members of the Binghamton Breakfast Rotary Club were invited by the Broome County Undersheriff Eric Janis to eat an "inmate breakfast" and tour the jail facility.
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!
We had our "pass the gavel" ceremony and our past president Gino passed the gavel to our new president Bill Phillips for the year 2015-2016

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
Centennial celebration honors 20 noteworthy global grant projects

We’ve also led the fight to eradicate polio worldwide. As part of our celebration of the Foundation’s centennial, we’re honoring 20 global grant projects with special recognition. Learn more about the projects using our interactive map.
Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
