Welcome to the Hyannis Rotary Club Website!

3/13/20

 

We are all distressed by the horrific news of the growing COVID19 pandemic and share an abiding concern for the health and safety of our community, family, and friends. It is in that light we announce that the 2020 Hyannis Rotary Home Garden & Lifestyle Show has been postponed. Rotary thrives on the concept of bringing people together but we must hold to our responsibility to heed the call for social distancing.

 

The Barnstable School Department formed a Task Force which placed a minimum 4 week moratorium on events at school properties. They will provide weekly updates which we will monitor and make further changes if called for. If permitted, our event will take place on May 16-17th. We hope you can all join us then. If you are unable, we understand. Please let us know as soon as you can. We still have vendors calling looking for booths. This crisis is unprecedented for us at Rotary in the 62 year history of the event. 

 

Your booth package payments can be applied to the May show or our 2021 show. Perhaps you cannot participate in the future shows, and would rather receive a refund.  If so, we hope you will consider your registration fee, or a significant portion thereof, a charitable, fully tax deductible donation to our efforts during this emergency. 

You will have helped us help the most vulnerable here at home on Cape Cod. Rotary is historically committed to supporting the Red Cross, Housing Assistance, and Food Pantries. As a disease fighting organization, our efforts to eradicate polio worldwide are no secret. 

 

The Miles for Smiles Run will also be rescheduled to this week in May. See the SEMC website for more information. If the moratorium is extended through May, our 2020 event will be cancelled.

 

We hope this global crisis fades away as quickly as it sprang up. This postponement is out of our control. We will continue to follow local, state, and national guidelines during this State of Emergency, and pledge our support to the community, businesses, and people of Cape Cod.
