The District Governor of District 7090 of Rotary appeared at a recent meeting of the Jamestown Noon Rotary Club.
With a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting and a Master's of Business Administration in finance, Samuel "Jack" Amico started working as a cost accountant with Ford before moving to computer sales with IBM and Honeywell. Self-employed since 1977, he runs a staffing firm in the information technology area. A few years ago, he added a business enterprise providing regional commercial mortgage origination for a family company.
Through the years, Amico has served on the boards of the Association for Systems Management, the Institute of Management Accountants and the IT100, a technology leadership group. In Rotary, Amico has been his club's president, an assistant governor at the district level and a director of service projects. In addition, he and his wife Delores have volunteered for many years in the Mission Renewal Program in the Buffalo Catholic Diocese.
Pictured, from left, are Delores Amico; Sharon Hamilton, past Jamestown Noon Rotary president and assistant district governor; Jack Amico, Rotary district governor; and Todd Allen, current Jamestown Noon Rotary Club president.
A member of the West Seneca Rotary Club, Amico's goal as governor is to see District 7090 clubs spread the word about Rotary and what it does for their communities. The 2014-15 Rotary aim worldwide is "Lighting up Rotary."
The Jamestown Noon Rotary Club is a service club which meets over lunch at noon Mondays in the Robert H. Jackson Center banquet room. The club raises money for projects such as the National Comedy Hall of Fame, foreign exchange programs, youth leadership training, camperships and more. Members participate in highway clean-up, reading at schools, Salvation Army Red Kettle campaign work and numerous other activities.
