Saturday is the day for the Annual Ride for Rotary to benefit the Cortland Regional Training Center and its work to make sure our first responders are ready. “These folks put in numerous hours, up to 240 hours of training to be a first responder to come and help us,” said Don Richards, organizer of the event for the Cortland Breakfast Rotary Club. “Not to mention all their time when we call and we need them. So, this is huge to our community. If we had to pay for this kind of service in our community it would be astronomical.”
Richards says that’s the bottom line for the Annual Ride for Rotary fundraiser. “They come out in our time of need and it’s always a panic situation and to know that we helped train them and hopefully they go back to their loved ones and family safe and sound, and that’s really what this is all about.”
Signup for the first event is at 8 am at the community building behind the Homer Fire Station – a 5K walk. A bike ride follows at 9 am.

The public is invited to stop in and donate to help our volunteers remain ready. “The reason for the Ride for rotary is to help the Cortland Regional Training Center and the training of all of our first reponders,” said Richards.
