by having your club plan and implement acts of kindness!
An act of kindness is a selfless act, planned or spontaneous, performed by kind people to either help or
cheer up a random stranger, for no reason other than to make people happier.
Congratulations to the top Acts of Kindness and thanks to all clubs that participated!
1st Place: Little Falls Rotary Club
Collaborated with the local cinema to provide family movie passes to local DPW workers as a thanks for their hard work on the roads in this long, cold winter!
2nd Place: Baldwinsville Rotary Club
Delivered snack trays to all 13 polling locations to thank poll volunteers on Election Day and paid for the first $200 worth of orders at the Dunkin Drive-Thru on a random day in December - both documented with videos
3rd Place: Mohawk Valley Rotary Club
This club won due to the sheer volume of kindness they spread in their communities, including, but not limited to, visiting with local seniors, serving meals at the Elks Club and helping at the local food pantry.
All clubs that submitted their AOK were also recognized at the Celebration in Lake Placid, including:
Fulton Sunrise
New Hartford
Skaneateles Sunrise
We hope clubs will consider continuing to do acts of kindness,
and to always be a source of civility and caring in their communities.
Documenting these activities with great photos and videos that you can share on social media and in the local news are great ways to attract new members. People are always attracted to kindness!
