Interact Club Inductions

The Wallingford Memorial Rotary Club is very proud of its Mill River Union High School Interact Club. Last evening, dozens of new members were inducted into the MRUHS Interact Club at their annual induction potluck dinner and ceremony held at the Little Red Schoolhouse. The Interact Club was also presented with its Silver Citation Award! Congratulations to the newly elected Board and the new members! Welcome! We are very proud of all you do to serve our community!

Visitors!

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. IMG_5560

Mentoring Luncheon

The Wallingford Rotary was very happy to host its Mill River Union High School Interact Club for a career day/mentoring luncheon on Monday, April 8th at the Little Red Schoolhouse in Wallingford.

About a dozen Interact students joined Wallingford Rotary members to hear about career paths the Rotarians have chosen. Over a delicious lunch, the two groups shared fellowship and career suggestions, advice and stories.

The Interact Club will use the luncheon toward its Interact Presidential Citation award, a requirement of the prestigious award. A good time was had by all.

Teach Napal Project Fundraising Dinner

Many thanks to the many hands that helped to make our “Teach Napal Project fundraising dinner last Saturday at the Wallingford Rotary a big success!

As usual, our small but mighty club roared into action to serve more than 60 German Pork dinners and homemade apple desserts to our friends and neighbors on Saturday, January 26th at the Little Red Schoolhouse.

Our MRUHS Interact Club members were at the ready – helping our diners with beverages, clearing and re-setting tables and probably most importantly and very much appreciated by our guests, helping guests get in and out safely — offering a steady hand to help navigate the somewhat slippery sidewalks outside!

With the help of the Rotarians, Interact members and Rotary friends, and thanks to our great community without whom these dinners would not be such a success, we will be able to donate $500 to the Teach Napal Project, to assist with Napalese teacher education programs, furthering the Rotary motto of “service above self”.

Here are some lovely pictures of the evening, with photo credit to our special visiting guest and helper, Guenevere Crum.

 

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
