Thomas Morrissey,
Club President 2024-2025

From our President

Welcome to the Cairo-Durham Rotary Club. We are located in beautiful Greene County, New York.

Our club’s focus is on responding to needs in our community and supporting our local schools. We are very proud of the work we do here and would love for you to join us – either by becoming a member or supporting one of our fundraisers. Rotarians are always eager to form new friendships to make for a better Cairo-Durham community.

Some of the projects that we are proud of supporting are: donating funds to purchase food for elementary students to bring home each weekend, purchasing sneakers for students in each of the Cairo-Durham school campuses, as well as and providing Christmas presents for local families in need. Our club does several road cleanup projects a year on Route 23, as well as park beautification projects throughout the community. We donate funds to local food pantries and women’s leagues, and recently purchased fluid warmers for our local EMS. Our Rotary has even supported our global community by donating an emergency shelter box to the people of Haiti, donating funds to the people of the Ukraine, and assisting in building a women’s shelter in Costa Rica.

As president, I want to thank you for visiting our website and I strongly encourage you to please get involved and help support the wonderful work we do. 

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance to those who have much, it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.” FDR

Do you know? Early on, Paul Harris realized that Rotary needed a greater purpose. While Harris served as President of the Chicago Rotary Club in 1907, the club initiated its first public service project, the construction of public toilets in Chicago. This step transformed Rotary into the world’s first Service Club. The club calls a meeting of civic organizations to establish a committee for installing city comfort stations, or public toilets, to improve sanitation.

It was this same concept of promoting business which led to the first community service project of the original Chicago Rotary Club. In their effort to promote more business, the members decided to construct these toilets because of the great need.

Over a 100 years has passed since that initial installation and you can still see the faint outline on the side of the building of where the comfort station once stood. #RotaryHistory
