Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from the Wallingford Rotary!

If you are you making resolutions, and would like to make your community and your world a better place in 2017, consider joining Rotary this year.

If you are in the Wallingford, Vermont area, please come join our Wallingford Rotary, affectionately called the “Little Red Schoolhouse”. Give us a whirl by stopping by one of our meetings, 7 a.m. on Monday mornings except for the last Monday of the month, when we meet at 5:30 p.m.

Rotarians number over 1.2 million in over 200 countries and geographic areas. They work on world wide efforts, such as the eradication of polio, safe drinking water and disaster assistance and are the same folks who here in our own little community of Wallingford help sponsor Bike Safety Day and installed the beautiful fencing that graces the entrance at the Stone Meadow. The opportunities available are endless and the good you experience from helping to make our world, and our own community, a better place, are unmeasurable.

We would love to hear your ideas and have you become

a part of our community and help make 2017 a good year.

Happy and Healthy New Year!

Your Wallingford Rotarians

Stone Meadow Service Project

This morning a group of Rotarians, conservation commission members and members of the Mill River Union High School Key Club gathered together to install stacked rail fencing at the parking area and entrance to Stone Meadow in Wallingford. Our current Rotary president, Donald Glendenning adopted this as his project during his term. The Rotary provided the financial support for the fencing materials and then also helped with the installation. Here are the before and after photos.

True to the saying that “many hands make light work” we had a great group of volunteers, both Rotarians, Conservation Committee members, community members and high school students who volunteered to make quick work of the installation. Here are some of the pictures of the workers in action….

 

Finally, here is a picture of the “crew” alongside their completed project. Congratulations and a big thank you to all involved, especially Don whose leadership helped make this service project happen and go smoothly.
