A note from Founder Nick:
The other week twenty or so Rotary Club members and guests were present for the weekly Breakfast Meeting held at Cancun's. It was so nice to be introduced to two of the three graduating Red Hook seniors who were awarded scholarships by the Rotary Club and honored at the meeting. The recipients present were Jacob Morrison, Liz Lowney, and the third recipient, unable to attend, was one of our own ambassadors, Tess Rothwell (RHHS ‘19)! My own remarks and presentation during the meeting focused briefly on the formation of our Foundation, our history over the last four and a half years, and our most recent giving. I also touched on our hopes for future local engagement and impact. When I asked the Rotarians to consider collaborating with us again this year on the No Cost Market, there was immediate support and a pledge of cooperation! Everyone was kind in complimenting us on our community involvement and I was grateful to speak on AFF's behalf in front of so many dedicated service-oriented community members. What a pleasant opportunity to chat about common interests! And breakfast at Cancun's was delicious!
