It’s time for another edition of Meet A Member of the Liberty NY Rotary Club. This week’s spotlight is truly involved in so much. You could call her our “Sunshine” as she started a committee that helps brighten the day of fellow Rotarians and community members going through a difficult time. Also, she probably holds the record for most concerts attended amongst club members. Without further ado, here’s Fay Cerullo’s Rotary story! 
“In 2015 when I was contemplating retirement from teaching, I felt I should get involved with Rotary so that I'd have something positive to be involved with and to make new friends. I posted on Facebook that I was interested, and Judy Siegel responded with the invitation to Liberty Rotary Club. I quickly joined, and within six months, I was Sergeant of Arms. I am currently Secretary.
“Having a family history of serious medical problems, I gravitated towards projects that were health related. I joined the Polio Plus committee, and eventually I became the chair of fundraising events. I helped organize the 3 Rotary Clubs in Sullivan County, Liberty, Livingston Manor, and Monticello, in an annual combined dinner fundraiser. I also help organize 
Liberty Rotary's participation in card sale donations for the Heartathon and St. Jude Country Cares.
“I joined Shelter Box as an ambassador. I was loaned a complete sample Shelter Box, and I set up a display in various places around New York. This included an exciting day at the United Nations.
“Besides health initiatives, I enjoy helping children, teens and young adults. I have served on the scholarship and RYLA committees, and I combined interests by participating in Shelterbox exercises at several RYLA conferences. Before the pandemic, I chartered the Sullivan County Rotaract Club and have worked with small numbers of motivated young adults. 
“I found that my biggest passion to date is helping my fellow Rotarians. While Liberty Rotarians are busy helping people locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, who is supporting them? I started a Sunshine Committee, and I try to recognize Liberty Rotarians' needs and hardships and celebrate life events and successes. 
“While I am not a great fundraiser, I utilize my skills to organize and support other Rotarians who are. I may not know what I'll be involved with in the future, but I know my focus will always be on helping people and being part of a group of close friends who have fun, support each other, and help make this world a better place.”
