This year our event has three great beneficiaries:
  • Adirondack Vets House, Inc. works with homeless and at-risk veterans in Northern Saratoga, Warren, Hamilton, and Washington Counties and provides a safe, stable, and supportive longer-term living environment that prepares them for an independent and productive life.
  • Tri-County Literacy improves lives by fostering literacy skills among members of Warren, Washington, and Saratoga counties through practical, learner-centered education that provides opportunities for independence and economic mobility.
  • The Charles R. Wood Theater is a venue that promotes cultural and artistic endeavors, thereby fostering the economic development and improving the quality of life within the greater Glens Falls area.  
Please come join us for a wonderful morning wellness event and support these deserving organizations.

Who are We?
The Rotary Club of Glens Falls, NY came into existence in 1922 when Rotarians from the Troy area recruited 25 of the top community leaders to form our organization.  Men like Frank Smalley, C.V. Peters, Elmer West, Fred Chapman, and J. Thacher Sears were among the most prominent members of the local manufacturing, educational, theological and publishing industries. Other Charter Members were from the top of the legal and medical professions, public accountants, contractors, bankers and insurance representatives. Today, almost 100 years later, the Glens Falls Rotary still attracts the cream of the community. We are a diverse mixture of men and women from all walks of life. The only criteria that measures us is our desire toward service and the aspiration to make ourselves, our community and our world a better place for all.
      The President of the Rotary Club of Glens Falls for 2004-2005 year was Ray Agnew.  He attended the Rotary International Convention in Osaka, Japan that year and came back to the club excited about different opportunities for service that he’d learned about.  Amongst these were water-related projects.    He asked club member, Kay Walter to form a committee to explore how the club could become involved and the wheels were put in motion.
     The Water Committee forged a link with a Rutland, Vermont-based organization called Pure Water for the World (PWW).  They had started life as a club project of a Brattleboro, Vermont Rotary Club and had outgrown one club’s resources.  The project involved supplying bio-sand water filters to villages in Central America and has morphed into an NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) that offers a suite of water, sanitation and hygiene solutions.  Those solutions supplied by PWW now include: installation of water filters, building latrines, hygiene education, field technician training, water testing and education amongst many others.
