We are saddened to announce that David C.Schildwachter, Sr, Past President of the Yonkers-East Yonkers Club 2012-2015, and Past Assistant Governor (2015-16) for D7230, passed away on Monday 16 March, after a short illness. 
 
Born in 1933, Dave joined the then East Yonkers Club in 2011 and was President of the Club during the time of the merger with the Yonkers Club.  He continued as President for a total of three terms from July 2012 to June 2015, when he was appointed Assistant Governor for the District for the Rotary Year 2015-16. 
 
We extend our deepest condolences to his wife Wendy and to his extended family.  May his soul rest in peace.
In view of the escalating situation with the COVID-19 virus, the safety and well-being of our members is of primary concern.  The Club is adhering to the recommendation of social distancing to stem the spread of the virus. 
 
To that end,  President Steve Simpson has announced some measures to continue the work of the Club.  In-person Club Meetings have been cancelled for the next six weeks and will be replaced by online meetings.  He has also announced that our clubs monthly food packing service project for homebound seniors and disabled persons will continue on Wednesday 18 March with a skeleton crew of members with the appropriate sanitary protection measures in place.  Those members who feel uncomfortable or have any underlying health conditions are advised to remain at home.  He said, "while we are taking any and all measures to ensure the safety of our members, we will not abandon our motto of Service Above Self.  These homebound seniors and disabled persons depend on our help in packing their food supplies and we simply cannot abandon them when they themselves are also in great need of our assistance."
 
The planned wine-tasting fundraiser scheduled for 19 March has been postponed.  The other upcoming events are being reviewed and appropriate decisions will be taken in due course.
 
District Governor Mahbub Ahmad in a message to all Rotarians in the District said "our primary goals are three-fold. to ensure the continued safety of our members and their families,contribute to all containment efforts, and ensure that we ourselves do not contribute towards spreading the disease."  He advised Clubs to use judgment and discretion, when it comes to club meetings and events.  Canceling or postponing meetings or Rotary-related travel, might be appropriate. Many Clubs are postponing or canceling regular in-person meetings, or holding them online, or by phone.   To help with these efforts, the District will offer it's Zoom Video Conference Facilities and its teleconference setup to all Clubs in the District at no cost.
During this festive holiday season, Club members, friends and guests gathered on Wednesday 18 December, at the Castle Royale in Yonkers for the traditional annual holiday gathering.  One of the highlights of this year's gathering was the presentation of the 2019 President's Spirit of Service Award.
 
The first recipient of this new service award was Community Leader Pedro Alvarez, who was recognized for his "Outstanding Devotion and Service to the Latin American Youth of Yonkers" and his dedication to the ideals of Rotary.
 
Another highlight of the gathering was the distribution of toys for young children.  Attendees were asked to bring in unwrapped toys that were then distributed to deserving Yonkers children.
