At the Ballston Spa Holiday Parade, some of our Rotarians joined with our BSHS Interact students and advisors as well as members of the Ballston Spa Lions Club and Community Emergency Corps to collect Toys for Tots along the parade route. We were able to collect about 150 toys for the kids. A great community effort. Let’s do it again next year!
Our Christmas tree lot at Curtis Lumber on Rt. 67 in Ballston Spa is now open from 10am to 8pm daily (open early at 9am on Saturdays). We have a mixture of sheared Balsam Firs and Frasier Firs with more than 700 to choose from. Our trees are from 7-10 feet tall and sell for $45 and up. All profits are used to finance our projects for the next 12 months and go right back into the local community to help those in need.

We would like to introduce to everyone our Rotary Exchange Student for this year, Sophie Panthel. Sophie is visiting us from Kleinmachnow, Germany, a small town outside of Berlin. She lives there with her Mom & Dad (who is President of his Rotary Club this year) and their cat Emil. Her favorite classes are economics, information technology, and music. She has traveled quite a bit throughout Europe as well as Thailand, the US, and other areas. Her family has hosted Exchange Students before so this adventure is nothing new to her. She will be initially staying with the Armer Family and has lots to learn about our area. Please join us in welcoming her to Ballston Spa. Herzlich willkommen und eine gute Zeit haben, Sophie.
