Correction - 
  • In the last edition of The Channel, we included a story about Ed Miller receiving a Paul Harris Award.  We erroneously stated that it was his 3rd Paul Harris Award but it was IN FACT his 4th Paul Harris Award.    Great work Ed!   
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!
Paul Harris Fellow,  Ed Miller

The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation.  This is Ed's 3rd Paul Harris Award

Rotary established the recognition in 1957 to encourage and show appreciation for substantial contributions to what was then the Foundation’s only program, Rotary Foundation Fellowships for Advanced Study, the precursor to Ambassadorial Scholarships.
