Welcome to the Nyack Rotary Club
 
As we celebrate our 95th year of service to the Nyack Community,
we bring the phrase "service above self" to life every day. 
From our acclaimed education program, "Cover to Cover"
to our volunteer work with Meals on Wheels, to our help to needy families
with our Valentine Baskets, we try every day to bring the essence of Rotary to everything we do.
 
 
Club News
With the 2018-2019 school year in full swing, Nyack Rotary's successful Education Program, "Cover to Cover" is once again in full swing.  August featured "Back to School with Dignity" a fundraising program to provide school supplies to kids in need so that we ensure that every child enters school on an equal playing field.  In October, we  began our read-aloud, book give-away program and so far have read to first-graders in Valley Cottage Elementary and to preschoolers at Nyack Head Start.   Each child gets a free book to take home.  These read-aloud programs  continue throughout the year.  
 
The Nyack Rotary has also partnered with Junior Achievement of the Hudson Valley.  In that partnership, Nyack Rotarians find themselves in 7th Grade classrooms, in the Middle School's "Family and Consumer Science Class" to teach the students about workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy.  Nine Nyack Rotarians annually run the classes.  Based on Junior Achievement's 7th Grade Economic Curriculum, Junior Achievement's unique approach allows us to follow their curriculum while also adding real life work and financial experience.  The entire cost of the program is annually covered by a Grant from the Nyack School District. This year's program is well underway.
 
As students in the Nyack School District enter High School their interaction with the Nyack Rotary continues.  Nyack Rotary support the Interact Club whose activities include baking cookies for Baking 4 Memories and Adopting a family for the Holidays.  The Nyack Rotary also sends Nyack High School Sophomores to the RYLA, the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, sponsored by the Welles Remy Crowther Foundation.
 
The program culminates with Six College College Scholarships for Nyack High School students.  The criteria for the scholarships include academics as well as students who focus on community service.
