We are a group of 55 or so people who support Rotary International's motto of Service Above Self. Rotary is an opportunity to build life-long friendships with Rotarians around the world and experience the personal fulfillment of helping others.
Our 2020-2021 club President is Mark Fuerbacher, pictured here. Our President-elect is John Hall. Our Treasurer is Terry O'Neil. Our Secretary is Dave Scheirer. Our Sargent at Arms is Pam Sivret.
Our annual March fundraiser, Savor the Flavor of Fairport, is morphing into a drive-thru dinner we call the Red Raider Picnic Plate on Sat., May 22, 2021 at the Perinton VFW Post 8495 in Fairport. Tickets are available from Fairport Rotarians, from juniors in the Class of 2022 at Fairport High School - and on our Red Raider Picnic Plate page.
Thank you to all who supported local charities through our Make a Difference Day 2020 drive-thru Pasta Dinner on Oct. 25th at Perinton VFW Post 8495. You are our heroes!
Proceeds from both events are distributed through our Charitable Giving Program.
We strive to apply Rotary's Four-Way Test in all we say and do:
1. Is it the TRUTH?
2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3. Will lit build GOOD WILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

Fairport Rotary Club provides funding assistance to organizations with special financial needs. We evaluate and select recipients twice a year, in the fall and again in the spring.
Pre-pandemic, we donated to 32 charities annually, including Advent House, Erie Canal bicycle repair stations (Village of Fairport), Fairport Challenger Baseball, Literacy Volunteers, and Perinton Food Shelf. We continue to fund charities that apply and meet our criteria for funding.
Currently the only data Fairport Rotary Club's website host shares with Fairport Rotary are 1) the number of times our Charitable Giving packet has been downloaded and 2) the number of page views in the past 7 days and the past 30 days.
Fairport Rotary Club's website's host tells us they collect data to optimize Fairport Rotary's page loading speed. The website host has never shared this data or the page loading speed with Fairport Rotary Club.
Fairport Rotary Club has the option to collect additional data and has chosen not to do so. Should this change, the Cookie banner will reappear noting a change and allow website visitors to opt out of some or all portions of the new data collection.
