The Baldwinsville Rotary Club is blooming with new projects, new members and renewed spirit for serving our community. Want to be a part of that? Visit us at a meeting sometime and see what it’s all about! Here’s some more about what we are working on right now…

Pride of Workmanship
Are you a local business owner with great employees? Nominate one for our Pride of Workmanship award and let the whole community know how much their hard work is appreciated. Rotarians pride themselves on having the highest ethical standards in their business practices. Our club provides this award program so others can be honored for doing the same!

Click here to download the application form and get your nomination in by April 12th
Winners will be announced by April 30th

Then we will present the awards at a banquet dinner at the Red Mill Inn on Tuesday, May 10th.

Many thanks to Rotarians Norma and Marcia for leading the way to reinstate this special program for our community!

Our newest project, Honor Tree, is a fundraiser for Clear Path for Veterans, out of Chittenango. We are selling ribbons for one dollar each, on which you can write a message of appreciation, love or remembrance. We will then use the ribbons to decorate the trees in front of the Baldwinsville Public Library for a week in May, leading up to our town’s Memorial Day Parade.

If you own a local business and would be willing to help sell the ribbons, please contact us at
Follow us on Facebook for updates on when and where we will be out and about selling ribbons!

Even though this isn’t until June 11th, it’s a big project for our club and we’ve been working on it for months.
This is the last chance to get your sponsorships and prizes donated in order to get on the thousands of duck tickets that we print. We will, of course, accept support for the event through the end of May! If you wish to support this event that attracts hundreds of local families for a free festival, we will give you excellent promotion in return. Contact us at or download the sponsor flyer along the right side of the page for details!
Duck tickets are already available online, with a flock of six ducks just $25. First prize is $1,000 cash thanks to George Townsend of Honda City!
We are planning a lot of great activities, entertainment and contests for all ages, including, but not limited to:
Magic Show
Teddy Bear Picnic
Live Music
Karate Demonstrations
Medallion Hunt
Pony Rides 
Coast Guard Water Safety Demonstrations
Bounce Houses
Antique Car Show
Food & Craft Vendors
Home Depot Workshop Tent
Beautiful Fireworks Display – sponsored by Hudson & Mowins Auto Repair

Plus we will have our popular Anything That Floats Contest at 4pm. Click here for details so you can start building your boat today!

And, of course, The Great Seneca River Duck Race will take place at 7pm. Tickets are already available online, will be available from club members later this month and on sale all the way up until about 6pm on Seneca River Day! We are gathering excellent prizes thanks to the support of our local businesses and individuals, including that grand prize.

It is an honor for our club to put together a day that is fun for families and low cost for them to attend. We truly enjoy seeing the same families attending each year, watching their children grow and it is our goal to make this event bigger and better each year. Look forward to seeing you there!
