Lobster Fest and Silent Auction!

It’s that time of the year! The Wallingford Rotary’s Annual Lobster Fest is upon us. This year we will also have a silent auction and live music! Tickets are now available from any Wallingford Rotarian or you can call Tammy at 802-259-3711. The price of $30 includes your choice of lobster or steak, all the trimmings, non-alcoholic beverages and dessert. Our community’s consistent support of this, our largest fundraiser of the year is wonderful and very much appreciated by our club and the children that we support! In addition to our support of our MRUHS scholarships, Bike Safety Day, Fishing Clinic and Derby, Project Dictionary and Youth Exchange, this year we are also supporting our new global work with Haddassah Girl Empowerment Project in Uganda, a wonderful organization that is working to help girls and women become self-supporting, learn a skill and be free from abusive relationships. Our new Rotary member Kevin Mullin is a key participant in the project and would be happy to fill you in on the wonderful work they are doing. Lobster Bake2018

Annual Fishing Derby and Clinic

Today was a beautiful day for our Rotary Club’s annual fishing derby and clinic. Rotarians were out to help make it a fun day for area children and their families. Lots of smiles, lots of fish and lots of fun! Thanks to all who came out to participate and all those Rotarians in our small but mighty club that always make it all work for our community!
