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.

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.

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!

Our Hungarian exchange student was treated by one our Rotarians to a performance by the New York City Stand Up Shakespeare Company during their performance in Plymouth Notch. Ezsti was joined by two other students who will be one of her host families while she is here in the United States. Here are some pictures from the day.
Here are some photos from the District Conference in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Our exchange student, Amilcar, was present along with his fellow exchange students to make presentations to the group. A good time was had by all and the youth exchange was considered one of the highlights of the event.
