The Sunrise Rotary Club has also taken on a major role for the next few years in helping to fund the Universally-Accessible Max Moore Memorial Tree House along the Saranac River Trail. Last year, the club completed the Community Pavilion at Wilcox Dock and donated materials and labor to build the welcome sign at the Clinton County Airport and the gazebo at the Riverwalk in downtown Plattsburgh. The noon club recently finished construction of a pavilion at Rotary Centennial Park on the Old Base and has committed $50,000 toward the Strand Theatre Restoration project.

In addition to the many local organizations, the two clubs have provided funding to stamp out polio world-wide, establish an eye-care clinic in India, construct numerous latrines in poverty-stricken Nicaragua, and sponsor international water projects and the Shelter Box project.

To reach the $25,000 goal, Rotarians will be contacting businesses in the greater Plattsburgh area between now and April 24 seeking ads. Helfgott said that businesses, organizations and individuals who will not be contacted, but would like to support the Rotary Radio Day, can contact any of the Rotary co-chairs via email and someone will get in contact with them. They are:

Rotary Club of Plattsburgh; Jack Helfgott,, and Anne Cutaiar,

Sunrise Rotary Club of Plattsburgh; Kathy Duley,, and Tom LaBombard,
