The East Aurora Rotary Foundation President presented a check in the amount of $500 to Pastor Tim Freed, a member of the Board of Directors for FISH of East Aurora.
 
Since 1974 FISH of East Aurora has served the Southtowns, providing food and clothing to families in need. Currently they service approximately 370 families in the area.
 
Donations of non-perishable food and clothing can be dropped off Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30-Noon at their location, 960 East Main Street.
 
For questions or to coordinate other donations, please call 716-652-7272.
Youth Exchange is a program offered in Rotary Clubs from over 100 countries. Serving as a way to learn new languages, discover new cultures, and provide peaceful relationships, Youth Exchange is an important part of young people becoming global citizens. 
 
Short term and long term exchanges are offered. Short term exchanges last from several days to 3 months and are often structured as camps, tours, home-stays and occur when school is not in session. Long term exchanges usually last one full academic year and students attend school and live with multiple host families. 
 
Various Rotary Clubs contribute by providing room and board as well as school fees. Students are usually responsible for round trip airfare, travel insurance, travel documents and spending money/additional travel/tours. 
 
Our Rotary Club recently sent local high school student, Grace Carey to Italy. We were also hosting French high school student, Julie Marie, during the 2018-19 school year. Julie Marie is pictured below with former East Aurora Rotary President, Bob Young.

The Rotary Club of East Aurora donated $13,000 to the East Aurora Middle School STEAM lab. The lab focuses on efforts to expand learning in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  

The East Aurora club is also applying for a grant from Rotary International to provide additional funds for the STEAM program in 2018. In addition, the club will be working hard on fund raising throughout 2018 with hopes of making a similar donation for this program in 2019.

The Rotary club has learned about the STEAM programs starting at Parkdale Elementary to the East Aurora high school from meetings with East Aurora school administrators and technology teachers. With hundreds of East Aurora students using the STEAM lab at the middle school annually, the donations from the Rotary Club can be used to help purchase computers and related equipment for our East Aurora students.
