It’s that time of the year again! Wallingford Rotary’s Annual Lobster Festival and Raffle. Please join us on Sunday August 27th for a delicious afternoon of community and seafood by the shore of Elfin Lake to end the summer.

Tickets are available now for $30 each. Each ticket entitles you to your choice (in advance) of lobster or steak, with all the trimmings, beverages and dessert. Feel free to BYOB. It’s a great way to enjoy a lazy summer Sunday afternoon.

This is our Club’s largest fundraiser of the year. The proceeds from this Lobster Festival and the accompanying raffle go to support our programs for the children of our community. These include:

  • Wallingford’s Annual Bike Safety Day where each child is fitted with a brand new, free bicycle helmet.
  • Project Dictionary where each 3rd grader in elementary school in Wallingford and surrounding towns is given a new dictionary of their own.
  • Fishing Derby and Clinic where each child who attends the free event gets to learn about fishing and catch fish and win prizes.
  • Scholarships – The Wallingford Rotary awards several scholarships each year to our local high school students.
  • Interact Club – Wallingford Rotary sponsors and supports the Mill River HS Interact Club in its community service pursuits.
  • Youth Exchange – Wallingford Rotary hosts incoming and outgoing youth exchange students.

Raffle Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $20. In addition to the cash prizes which are a first prize of 2/3 of the winning pool and second prize of 1/3 of the winning pool, this year’s prizes will include:

  • Two Okemo lift tickets
  • Four tickets to a UVM Men’s Basketball home game
  • Two tickets to the Montshire Museum
  • Plymouth Cheese Gift basket

Welcome to the Mill River Union High School Interact Club!

_dsc0734The Wallingford Rotary was a proud group of Rotarians tonight as we hosted the inaugural induction ceremony for the Mill River Union High School Interact Club. This evening the “little red schoolhouse” was full to the brim with Interact students, parents, grandparents and Rotarians.

Our newly formed Interact Club inducted 49 members this evening led by its president, John Graves under the guidance of their teacher advisors, Debra Gardner-Baasch and Cindy Roberts. _dsc0721

When I became president of the club, it was my hope for my presidency to solidify the relationship that our rotary club had with Mill River students who were always ready and willing to lend a hand to our “small but mighty” club when we needed extra hands and help to make our community functions successful. You have seen them at the Lobsterfest, Wallingford’s Bicycle Safety Day and at Stone Meadow, just to name a few events. This evening, I am very proud that we can call them our own Interact Club.

We enjoyed a wonderful evening of food and fellowship. We even had a gigantic “happy birthday” to our Hungarian exchange student and Interact member, Eszti.

Congratulations to the officers, members and faculty directors of the Mill River Interact Club ~ we know you will do great things and spread much fellowship and good will throughout our community and the world.
