Chartered in 1948, the Sharon Springs Rotary has a reputation for being filled with skilled craftsmen and women. Each Year at the Founder’s Day parade, the Sharon Springs Rotary float is greeted with lots of ooooh’s and aaaah’s. From working water wheels, to Lady Liberty, the rotary club is sure to draw some attention.
The Sharon Springs Rotary club has partnered with many other organizations to do good in the world and in the local community. The community Nativity scene was build in the late 50’s in response to an ice storm the destroyed the original used by the church. From raising funds the Rotarians stepped up and built a weatherproof crèche to house the new figurines. The nativity was originally erected on the front lawn of the school, where Rotary also planted a blue spruce as a living Christmas tree. The Rotary Club has relocated it to the “main intersection” of Route 10 & 20 and a few years later again planted an evergreen to serve as the Community Christmas Tree.
The Sharon Springs Rotary supports the food pantry thorough food donations, gifted a new upright freezer, gifted and installed kitchen cabinets and built & installed shelving.
Today the Sharon Springs Rotary Club is focused on new growth and continuing to support the community in many ways.
