Upcoming Donut Events

Fishkill Rotary Club will be selling apple cider cinnamon mini-donuts and coffee at the Stormville Flea Market April 29 and 30 and on May 27 and 28. Please join us at the flea market and enjoy some delicious donuts and hot or iced coffee. The money raised through donut sales goes to support our many outreach programs, including Operation Warm Coats, Adopt-A-Family for the holidays and scholarship opportunities for deserving John Jay High School seniors. Hope to see you there! 

Fishkill Rotary Exchange Representatives

Fishkill Rotary is very proud to sponsor a Rotary Exchange student, Anna Zerrella (left), from Italy. Anna will be spending the next few months with Fishkill Rotary families as she learns more about America and attends John Jay High School in East Fishkill. On the right is Dilynn Kessler, Fishkill Rotary's Exchange representative, who will be in Italy during the same period of time attending an Italian school and learning about the culture and history of Italy. Good luck to both of these wonderful students as they truly expand their horizons as part of Rotary Exchange.
