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

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.
