Changing of the Guard

On June 26,   2014 at Traditions at the Links in East Syracuse, the gavel was passed from District Governor, Dennis Schonewetter to District Governor elect, Deborah Glisson.  Our Camillus Solvay Geddes club had a good representation and as our picture shows Steve Poli passing on the presidential challenge to Cynthia Drake. Our Camillus Solvay Geddes Club repeated the changing of the Guard ceremony at our Club Picnic held at the Erie Canal tow Path Park in Camillus on June 30th.

This past year was filled with changes and accomplishments.  We took on the combining of the Camillus Rotary club with the Solvay - Geddes Rotary Club, and the change to our meeting place to the Copper Top Restaurant on Milton Ave and day of meetings to Mondays. We set in motion the plans to establish an interact club and distributed seven scholarships to seniors from four High schools, West Genesee, Solvay Geddes, West Hill and Bishop Ludden. We thank Steve for his leadership and continued dedication to our Rotary principles,” Service Above Self”.

Cynthia will be challenged to carry out the new Rotary theme of “Light Up Rotary” and shine the light on Camillus, Solvay, Geddes Rotary’s service to their community. We pledge our support to assist Cynthia in making the New Year a success and continue the growth and good works of our club.

Camillus, Solvay, Geddes Rotary Interact


In 2013 The Camillus, Solvay, Geddes Rotary Club voted to help organize an Interact club serving High School Aged youth. We are currently in the discussion stage with four area High Schools; West Genesee, West Hill. Solvay, and Bishop Ludden. We are proposing to establish a community wide Interact club with chapters in each of the schools.

The focus of the club is to build leadership skills and a social consciousness that helps build community. Youth plan, develop, and implement their own projects. Rotary International provides an annual theme which may be used to guide the direction of the annual events. The Community club represented by representatives from each of the school chapters meet periodically to establish community wide goals. Each school chapter is left to establish their own annual agenda in coordination with the central clubs themes and goals. The periodic meetings could be done through telecommunications and or in person at a convenient location. The chapter will meet under the direction of a proctor who would be the liaison to the Camillus, Solvay, Geddes Rotary, and selected by the school. School classrooms will house the meetings and held after school hours. Meetings would last ½ hour, and function as a planning and organizational meeting to establish events, fund raisers, and projects. Students would be selected through a volunteer basis to chair individual events.

At the beginning of each school year. The Rotary Interact club would be presented as an option for students to participate in. Our Rotary club will provide the sponsorship of the event and assist in any way possible to assist the chapters and the Community club. Such assistance could include a small stipend for the instructors, transportation, and mentor ship.

We are planning for the School year of 2015.
