The Rotary Club of Worcester has been quite busy with service above self in recent weeks, covering COVID-19, kids clothing, and Halloween candy.
On October 22, the Worcester club was extremely fortunate to have as its keynote speaker Dr. John Sullivan, MD (shown, third row, second from left), professor of molecular medicine at UMass Medical School in Worcester. He spoke about COVID-19, where it originated, its relationship to other viruses, as well as some epidemiology, virology, and immunology. The main takeaway was how lucky we are to have smart, dedicated people (many, right in Worcester) working to solve this problem.
Two member of the Worcester club, Todd Lamison (on left) and Tracy Gagnon (on right), recently assisted the Wachusett Area club's Coats for Kids distribution day. A total of 67 kids got winter coats.
Recently, the Worcester club also rounded up 8,000 pieces of Halloween candies for distribution on October 24. A big shout-out goes to club member Donna Burritt for rounding up the candy and coordinating a Rotary team (shown, right) to assemble 500 bags for distribution.
