Annual Silent Auction and Lobster Fest Time!

It’s that time of the year again! Wallingford Rotary will be holding its annual silent auction and lobster fest. Tickets to the Lobster Fest are $30 for either lobster or steak dinner with all the trimmings, beverages and dessert. Please email tammy.heffernan@gmail.com or call Tammy at 259-3711 for tickets or you can ask any Wallingford Rotarian.

The Lobster Festival and Silent Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year and will be held this year, as always at the Wallingford Lodge at Elfin Lake in Wallingford, Vermont on September 8, 2019. The event attracts approximately 150 community members who enjoy a lobster dinner with all the trimmings on the shore of beautiful Elfin Lake. We have a silent auction during the event to raise additional funds for our community causes as listed below.

The proceeds from this event locally to support our community projects for children this year will be split will be used in our communities to support the Wallingford Rotary’s work with area children including high school scholarships, our annual Wallingford Bike Safety Day where each child who comes is given a free new bicycle helmet fitted just for them, Project Dictionary where each third grade student in our communities’ schools of Danby, Wallingford, Tinmouth, Shrewsbury and Clarendon is given a new dictionary/thesaurus to keep as their own, our annual Fishing Clinic and derby and Youth Exchange with international rotary clubs providing local students an opportunity to experience a year living abroad with a host family.

We hope that you will help support our small but mighty club by attending the dinner and/or bidding at our silent auction. Please check back here for auction items as we receive them from our generous donors.

Here are photos of some of our auction items!

New-ness at Wallingford Rotary

Wallingford Rotary’s most recent meeting this morning, contained a lot of “newness”. It was the first meeting presided over by our new President, Nan Dubin. It was also the first meeting attended by our new District Governor Venu Rao. It was rounded out with the induction of our newest member, Taffy Hyyppa.

We are pleased to welcome Taffy and our other new member, Kevin Mullin to the Wallingford Rotary. We are excited by their enthusiasm and support of our little club and look forward to having them as a part of our “small but mighty” club.

If you are interested in attending one of our Rotary meetings to find out what the Wallingford Rotary is all about and how our mission of “service above self” may correspond with your own volunteer aspirations, please feel free to come along to one of our meetings, Monday mornings at 7 a.m. or as otherwise posted on this site or our Facebook page!

We’d love to have you!
