Today's invocation was lead by Harold McAuliffe with a special prayer for Angie and Bob Vukosic.  Angie passed away last Sunday, May 3.  Angie's funeral was set that morning.  We were joined by Dave Boyer, the outgoing acting President of Provisional Southeast Rochester Rotary Club, and Dick Wein of the Pittsford Food Cupboard.
Pete Crooker updated the Club on the Fellowship party at Amana Indian Cuisine and the Bike Drop on behalf of Steve Wilterdink.  Our guest speaker Anthony Danielle donated 7 bikes that morning bringing the total to 137.  This is the lowest collection we've had since we started the Bike Drop 6 years ago. However, that brings Pittsford Rotary’s total to 1445 and that our Club also takes pride in the fact that other Rochester Rotary Clubs have started doing bike drops too.
Today's guest speaker is Anthony Daniele who is the Monroe County Legislator representing the 10th Legislative District which includes most of the Town of Pittsford, part of the Village of East Rochester and a small portion of the Town of Brighton.  Anthony was first elected to the Legislature in November 2007 to a four-year term. He recently announced his candidacy for re-election to the 10th District. He has earned the respect of his colleagues who have chosen to elect him as the Chairman of the Ways & Means Committee in 2011 and holds a seat on both the Transportation and Human Services Committees.
Matt O'Connor announced that Saint's Place Executive Director, Isabel called him yesterday and said Saints Place really needs us on June 27 for their sale, not this weekend.  Therefore, last Saturday's scheduled community service date was canceled. Please put June 27 on your calendar. Matt's oldest child, Alyssa was a violin student at Sutherland and plays with attorneys in Chicago now where she is a law student.  Matt saluted Harold McAuliffe for his musical leadership in the School District over the decades during the "Happy Dollars."
