The Rotary Club of Niagara County Central was chartered by Rotary International on June 23, 1987. Thirty-four years later, the club is still active and supportive in the community.
Members recently held their installation dinner at the Wurlitzer Events Center in North Tonawanda. The following officers were elected for 2021-22: President Daniel Ljiljanich, Secretary Amy Kauderer and Treasurer Pat Sullivan; and to the board of directors: Dave Evans, Tom Grimm, Gail Perona and Dave Seaman.
Rotarian Marsha Emmons submitted her resignation due to her relocation to Florida. Ljiljanich thanked Emmons for her years of service and extended well wishes. He acknowledged Emmons’ late husband, Joseph, began the dictionary project in 2006. Ljiljanich assured her the Rotary Club of Niagara County Central would continue to annually donate dictionaries to third-grade students in the Niagara Wheatfield and Wilson school districts.
