  • 10K Dirty Sock Run Volunteers Needed - After a HUGE success last year, we are gearing up for 2023!  The committee for our largest fundraiser of the year will be meeting on Weds, Feb. 22nd at 11:30am at Long Island Yacht Club.  Please attend this meeting to learn how you can help out!
  • Literacy Project Committee- Next Committee meeting is Weds March 8th 11am, at Long Island Yacht Club. More than 775 Million people over the age of 15 are illiterate.  That's 17% of the world's adult population. The goal of the literacy project committee is to strengthen the capacity of our community to support basic education & literacy, reduce gender disparity in education & increase adult literacy.  The committee supports education for all children and literacy for all children & adults.    
  • Hygiene Drive Volunteers - The club will be running a hygiene drive to collect items to be distributing at local soup kitchens and food pantries.  We will need help collecting items, transporting items, assembling items into kits and delivering kits to soup kitchens.  Please respond to this newsletter or email our Community Service Chairwoman, Megan Noble if you would like to volunteer.  (
17th Annual 10K Dirty Sock Run 
WHAT A TERRIFIC DAY WE HAD ON RACE DAY!  Hopefully by now everyone has seen the amazing coverage we received in the Babylon Beacon about our fundraiser!  The morning was cool and sunny.  The trail was pristine.  The juicy watermelon, cold beer & hot dogs were greatly appreciated by runners at our after party.  Our new swag item, the Dirty Sock Run HAT was a HUGE hit. We already have a Bulk Food Buy in the works for our local soup kitchens. 
Thank you to SKIP, Babylon Village, volunteers & sponsors!  BIG THANK YOU to our PLATINUM LEVEL SPONSOR,  Rotarian GAIL SULLIVAN!
Congrats to Award Recipients!
