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.
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
Since the Wallingford Rotary Club is entrusted with the stewardship of the Paul Harris “little red schoolhouse”, our Rotary club often has the wonderful opportunity to have visiting Rotarians from all over the world stop in for a meeting or a visit. This past Saturday, we were able to open our doors for a little while for a Kansas Rotarian who was visiting the area for a wedding. Chuck Udell from Kansas and I had a great time while he got a quick tour of the little red schoolhouse.
If you are a Rotarian and will be in the “neighborhood” please reach out to us even if you can’t make one of our Monday meetings. If at all possible, one of us will do our best to try to arrange to meet you at a mutually convenient time and give you the tour. There’s lot of Rotary history to see at the little red schoolhouse and we love to meet our fellow Rotarians!
