Six Hommocks Middle School students were honored by the Rotary Club of Larchmont as winners of the 2024 Essay Contest during its May 17th luncheon at the Larchmont Yacht Club.  Club member Marian White has led the effort for the last 22 years, coordinating in September with the Hommocks English Department to determine a relevant topic and then selecting Rotarian essay judges to determine the winners.  Each May, families, teachers, Rotarians and special guests have gathered to celebrate the most talented of the young writers.
 
On May 18th, a small group of volunteers gathered at Larchmont’s Kane Park to kick off this year’s ecological restoration. The project, with the aid of the Larchmont Rotary Club’s sponsorship, will transform one section of the park’s sod grass lawn into a thriving ecosystem containing a diversity of native plants, grasses and shrubs which will support an abundance of bird and pollinator species and store carbon from the atmosphere. The restoration has involved several dozen volunteers from the community helping to re-introduce plant species that are known to have grown in the area for millennia.
 
Rachael Gazdick, New York Edge’s chief executive officer, was our guest speaker for the April 5th meeting at the Larchmont Yacht Club.  New York Edge is the metropolitan region’s largest provider of after-school enrichment programs.  It serves more than 30,000 students in 136 schools across all five boroughs and Long Island.  Over 85% of its students come from low-income households.  It began over 30 years ago under the “Schools Sports & Arts Foundation” from the efforts of tennis legend Arthur Ashe.
 
Club President Lester Nathan was formally recognized as a member of the Rotary Foundation’s Bequest Society at our March 1st meeting.  The Foundation recognizes couples or individuals who have made commitments in their estate plans totaling $10,000 or more.  Area Governor Sandy Wolstein attached a pin to Lester’s jacket and Regional Major Gifts Officer Celeste Herbert presented him with an engraved crystal.  He also received a pendant and print from the Foundation.
 
The Larchmont Rotary Club welcomed Ameil A. Sloley as our guest speaker on March 1st.  Using an informative slideshow, she gave our audience an introduction to Toastmasters International and how it improves its members' speaking skills.
 
 
Our club was pleased to have District 7230 Membership Chairman Hugh Maynard-Reid as guest speaker at our January 26th luncheon meeting at the yacht club.  It was a "motivational" presentation, one which was full of inspiration and high energy.

Special guests included District Governor Loren Russell, Governor Nominee Garrett Capobianco and Area Governor Sandy Wolstein.
