Peace Pole Dedication

Members of the Rotary Club of Hampton Bays and the community gathered on May 4, 2024 to commemorate the installation of a global Peace Pole. The Pole was installed at Good Ground Park in Hampton Bays in honor of Club Member Tom Crowley's 2023-2024 service as District Governor of Rotary District 7255 which encompasses Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
The Club installed a total of 4 poles as part of the global Peace Pole Project. Three are at the 3 Hampton Bays Schools, and one at Good Ground Park, a green space located in the heart of the hamlet. See more photos by clicking on the album in the Photo Albums section.

John Mitchell our newest Paul Harris Fellow

Long time Southampton Rotarian John Mitchell joined our Hampton Bays Club in December of 2016. Now a retiree and Florida snow bird, we're thrilled to have his many years of Rotary experience on hand to help educate our newer members. John recently sold some stock subject to Capital Gains tax. To help offset that tax liability, he made a generous donation to Rotary Foundation. Shown at right is Immediate Past President Tom Crowley on the right awarding John his Paul Harris Fellow credentials. Keep Rotary Foundation in mind for your giving!

Life Ring Project on Shinnecock Canal

Posted by Tom Crowley on Jun 01, 2017

In the late 1800’s my great grandfather Christian Holzman moved to Hampton Bays with the company hired to dig the Shinnecock Canal.  This iconic Hamptons landmark connects Shinnecock Bay to Peconic Bay and provides easy access to the Ocean for those who live on the “North Fork”.    After completing the canal my great grandfather settled in Hampton Bays buying property on the canal and raising a large “Duck Farming” family with descendants still occupying the original house and lands today.

As President of the Hampton Bays Rotary Club for 2016-2017 I immediately was receptive when Tim Corwin of the Southampton Rotary Club reached out to me to see if we would enter into a joint project with Southampton to put life ring-life saving stations along both sides of the canal.  Beau Hulse (SH President), Tim and I met and got things underway. 

Community contributions including the materials being donated by one of our members (Mike DiGaudio from Riverhead Building Supply), and lots of volunteer labor saw the project come to fruition.  A ribbon cutting ceremony took place on Friday May 19th.  Hampton Bays and Southampton members, our contributors, the Coast Guard, local politicians and the media all took part in the ceremony.  Nothing but positive comments have come from the community since this work was completed and both clubs have a strong feeling of pride in accomplishing such a worthwhile project.  A picture of one of the 22 stations we installed is shown below.

A great Rotary community project that brought our clubs and community members together!

Helping people with disabilities make their own music

Music has been an important part of leading an ordinary life for students at the Music School for Children With Disabilities in Honor of Paul Harris in Lublin, Poland. Founded by Rotary members, the school serves 20 students with various disabilities, including Down syndrome, autism, and visual impairments. The Rotary Club of Lublin-Centrum-Maria Curie-Sklodowska has provided funding with help from Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, which houses the school.
After their son Mateusz was born with underdeveloped eyes, Mariusz and Joanna Kania looked for ways to help him be active. When he showed an aptitude for music, they looked for a teacher and were thrilled to find the Paul Harris music school.

Finding Safe Haven

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.

India celebrates three years without polio

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
