Thank you for your support of the May 9, 2019 Rye Rotary Foundation Annual Dinner that took place on May 9, 2019 to Honor and Celebrate Dino Garr’s 300th game win and the life of Jim Yedowitz. 

Over 120 guests gathered at Whitby Castle, including Rye High Class of 65 alumni to future graduates, Rye City School District administrators, faculty and retirees, Rotarians from Rye and Rotary District 7230, and friends and neighbors. Dr, Eric Byrne, Superintendent of Schools, was the gracious emcee.

Dr. Eric Byrne officiated with presentations from the New York State Senate and Assembly, the Westchester County Executive, the Westchester County Board of Legislators, and the official Honor and Celebrate award ceremony. The ceremony began with a surprise when over 40 Rye High School students entered the dining room, led by track and football captains holding the Garnet “G” banner. The captains joined Dr. Byrne at the podium as the students gathered around.


The ceremony began with bouquets of flowers presented to Cathy Garr and Anne Yedowitz followed by Rye Rotary Foundation plaque presentations. The Dino Garr presentation was assisted by Declan LaVelle and Brendan LaVelle. The Jim Yedowitz presentation was assisted by Benjamin Johnson and Cian Galligan and accepted by Daniel Yedowitz (Jim’s son).  To further commemorate the occasion, the students presented a signed RHS football to Dino Garr and a signed RHS track jersey to Daniel Yedowitz.

Other event highlights included a live podcast by Westchester Talk Radio (, a roving reporter from the Rye Record interviewing guests, and a live auction fundraiser conducted by Rye Rotarian, Tom Mullooly.  Be sure to visit to see all of the event photos.

On behalf of the Rye Rotary Foundation, the Rotary Club of Rye, and the Honor and Celebrate Committee, thank you for your support. (See photos below)

The Rye Rotary Club presented a $1,500 grant to the Rye Police Department this evening at the Whitby Castle in Rye, NY.
The program is known as the “Adopt a School Program.” The program consists of school visitations during an officer’s tour of duty for the purpose of getting to know faculty, staff, students and parents.
Some of the goals and objectives of the program are:
• To provide a visible police presence on school property. To encourage the mutually beneficial exchange of information and concerns between the officer and his/her adopted school and build positive relationships with faculty, staff, students and parents.
• Reassure children about their safety and discuss methods they may use to avoid potentially hazardous situations.
• Provide insight on the role of police officers and encourage students to consider law enforcement as a career.
• Contribute to the positive development of the children.

Our fundraising dollars will be used to pay for the doctor training program in Aosta, Italy. The Rye Rotary Club teamed up with a resident African artist at Arts Westchester by the name of Joe "Kwaku" Cobbinah. Mr. Cobbinah is from Ghana and he featured art from different countries in Africa, all stunning and brilliant, ranging in price from several hundred dollars and up. The fundraiser was a big success and we thank Lora Hugelmeyer and Melanie Ciraco for their hard work in making this event worthwhile.

A small group of Rye Rotarians participated in the ceremony which was attended by their District Governor from Torino, Italy, the mayor of Courmayeur and many other dignitaries. President Scott Pickup, Past Pres. Lora Hugelmeyer and Coby Ellingwood represented Rye Rotary.

The Rye members were treated with incredible hospitality which included delicious dinners, historic and cultural visits and sightseeing in their beautiful snow covered Alps. Rye is looking forward to hosting the Courmayeur Rotarians in appreciation for all they did for our Club.
