ÂOur club is growing quickly this year as we celebrate Rotary InternationalÂs 100th anniversary,Â said Paul McAfee, president of the Rotary Club of Amherst East. ÂMary Ellen is a great new addition to our membership. We can use help from Mary Ellen and our other new members to provide increased levels of service to the Amherst and Buffalo communities.Â
ÂThe objectives of Rotary align well with Excelsior Orthopedics' commitment and tradition of giving back to our neighbors and the neighborhoods where we live and work,Â said Ms. Ashe. ÂRotary offers the physicians and staff of Excelsior a great opportunity to support the needs of our community.Â
The Rotary Club of Amherst East provides support each year for international and local causes. The club recently launched a ÂBig Ticket RaffleÂ to raise money for the Boys & Girls Club and for BuffaloÂs Vive la Casa.
