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!

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
