Stuff About Me:

Walter Straub Still Going Strong!

There is an old saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, and try again”.

That’s just what I’m doing.  I have been taking part in the Carmel Rotary

Basketball Shootout  for seven years, raising funds for Putnam Community Cares,

a not-for-profit organization that provides help for families of school-aged

children who have a parent dealing with Cancer or other medical illnesses. 

I missed one year while I battled a lung cancer operation but since 2015 I’ve

been back on the court, with the aid of my oxygen tank, trying to make my

goal of 50 baskets in two minutes.  So far, it’s been close, but I haven’t reached

50 yet. Hopefully this is the year.  I am asking for your support in my endeavor. 

Join my team and participate, or, If you would just like to donate toward my

goal making 50 baskets and raising $1,000 for Community Cares, you can do so

by just clicking on (web site).  If you would rather donate by mail, please make

checks payable to Carmel Rotary Foundation and mail to:

Walter Straub, 15 Gen. MacArthur Drive, Carmel, NY 10512.

Thank you…..I’ll let you know how I make out.
