Make A Difference Day 2017

Each October, we participate in Make A Difference Day, a national event sponsored by USA WEEKEND and Points of Light. 

During the 24-hour event, our members will engage in a variety of volunteer activities that will culminate on Sunday, October 29 in a pasta dinner fundraiser to benefit Perinton Youth Hockey and local Fairport charities.

What: Pasta Dinner – eat in or take out
When: Sunday, Oct 29, 2017 from 4 to 7 p.m. 
Where: Perinton VFW Post 8495, 300 Macedon Center Rd. (Rt. 31F) in Fairport, NY
Tickets: Adults $9.00, Children (ages 4-12) $6.00, Family $30.00 — available at the door or from a Fairport Rotarian.
Take-out: is available.

This year’s proceeds will support Perinton Youth Hockey. Their purpose is is to promote the sport of ice hockey for individuals under the age of eighteen, residing in the vicinity of Monroe County, New York, and surrounding areas, in order to develop their playing skills, to teach and encourage good sportsmanship and to foster healthy competition as an alternative to delinquency..

On the morning of October 28th, Fairport Rotarians will assemble at High Acres Landfill and Recycling Center for a work-detail on the High Acres Nature Area Trail to beautify the area. We have been volunteering here for several years. We're looking forward to another opportunity to make a difference at High Acres in 2017. 

On Sunday, October 29th, we will hold our annual Pasta Dinner (information above). The pasta dinner is a great way for the community to come together to support a worthy cause.

Make A Difference Day: we can’t think of a better way to live Rotary’s motto: “Service Above Self.”
