Please Donate to the Wallingford Rotary

Please consider donating to Wallingford Rotary to show your support for our local, regional and global efforts since we are not able to conduct in person fundraising events during the COVID19 pandemic. Our usual methods of fundraising, our annual Lobsterfest and Silent Auction, Coin Drop and our quarterly dinners at the Little Red Schoolhouse have all been put on hold during this pandemic, as we put the health and safety our community first and foremost in our hearts and minds. Therefore, we are embarking on a donation campaign to compensate for the lack of those funds so we can continue to serve our local, regional, state and global community and keep our Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” at the core of what we do here at the Little Red Schoolhouse.


From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your support.

In this time of pandemic, Wallingford Rotary is unable to conduct its usual in-person fundraisers, such the Lobsterfest, Coin Drop and our regular dinners at the Little Red Schoolhouse. We kindly ask that you continue to support the efforts of our small but mighty club with a donation. We appreciate your continued support of our efforts to make our town, our region, our state and our world a better place and continue to meet the goal of Rotary which is “Service above Self”.

Thank you for your support.

Changing of the Gavel 2020

This morning, the leadership of the Wallingford Memorial Rotary Club changed during its annual changing of the gavel induction ceremony.

The Wallingford Rotary extends its utmost congratulations and thanks to outgoing President Randell Barclay. During his year presidency, Randell has more than exemplified the motto of Rotary – “service above self” with his work within Rotary. Randell will next be preparing for his role as upcoming District Governor Elect.

We welcomed our new President, Dave Ballou. Dave is no stranger to Rotary, this will be his fourth term as president of our club. Along with Dave, Rotarian Sue Thayer was inducted as President Elect.

Wallingford Rotary extends its best wishes to Dave and Sue as they embark on this new Rotary year, we are sure that they will have wonderful things in store for our little club! Here are some pictures of Dave and Randell who were socially distancing and masked from the Little Red Schoolhouse for the induction ceremony which was held virtually for the rest of the club.

Interact Club Inductions

The Wallingford Memorial Rotary Club is very proud of its Mill River Union High School Interact Club. Last evening, dozens of new members were inducted into the MRUHS Interact Club at their annual induction potluck dinner and ceremony held at the Little Red Schoolhouse. The Interact Club was also presented with its Silver Citation Award! Congratulations to the newly elected Board and the new members! Welcome! We are very proud of all you do to serve our community!


The Little Red Schoolhouse was visited today by members of the Fitchburg Massachusetts Rotary Club. We are often asked to open our doors to our fellow Rotarians from all over the world to view the schoolhouse where Paul Harris attended school while he lived here in Wallingford. We have quite the little guestbook!

If you’d like to visit us sometime, please let us know. We’re always happy to have you join us for one of our sunrise breakfast meetings or we can plan a time for a Rotarian to open the doors and give you a tour. IMG_5560
