Terri Corrigan-Bastuk and Dave Shaheen represented Irondequoit Rotary on Saturday February 3rd meeting at the Ukrainian Federal Credit Union where they met the families our club helped resettle.  Funds from the District Simplified Grant and our general fund were used to provide basic necessities such as food, clothing, and school supplies.  Terri led the project to secure the matching grant from the District.  The families were very thankful and Dave and Terri made channel 13 news.  Click HERE to see the video.
December 13, 2023 was our annual Holiday Basket Project where we purchase and assemble 100 holiday dinners for the Irondequoit Community Cupboard (ICC). A great tradition for our local community!  For 28 years now, Irondequoit Rotary has been assisting our town residents and ICC even before they were the Irondequoit Community Cupboard…
Irondequoit Rotary’s latest project is to provide enhanced trail decking at locations in Durand Eastman Park surrounding Durand Lake.  The enhanced trail decking provides opportunity to more effectively hike around Durand Lake and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding environment.   It is the first phase of a multi-year project to enhance accessibility of the Park for residents of all ages to enjoy. Irondequoit Rotary partnered with Monroe County Parks Administration to identify areas of the park that had the most need.  Irondequoit Rotary members were joined by local Scout volunteers and the Irondequoit Rotary Interact Club to begin phase one of the project.

On Saturday November 11th there will be two Veterans Day dedications honoring Major General Norbert J Rappl. The first will be a bench dedication taking place during an 11am Veterans Day Memorial service at the front of Irondequoit Town Hall. The bench is donated to the town by the Irondequoit Rotary Club who wanted to honor Major General Rappl as one of their founding Rotary members and community leader. 

The second dedication will be at 1pm on the Tryon Park overpass over route 590.  At that time there will be a renaming of a portion of route 590 to “Major General Norbert J Rappl Highway”. The portion of 590 renaming will be from Ridge Road in Irondequoit south to Tyron Park overpass.

Major General Rappl was a founding member of Christ the King Church and served as Parish Council President and Trustee. A man of great faith he held almost every lay position in Christ the King and St. Kateri Parishes at one time or another and was a daily communicant for many years.  Major General Norbert J. Rappl, a lifelong resident of Irondequoit,  exemplified what it means to be a pillar of the community, a man of faith, and a man with love for his God, family, and country.

Major General, was the commanding officer for the Army 98th Division.
