Rotary Club of Fitchburg Invites You to Its 100th Birthday Party!

For the past 100 years, The Rotary Club of Fitchburg has served the community — both locally and worldwide .

“The Rotary motto is ‘Service Above Self’ and I think that the Fitchburg Rotary Club, for 100 years, has embodied that in our city,” said Fitchburg Mayor Stephen DiNatale

On Friday, June 15, 2018 the Fitchburg club will celebrate its 100th anniversary with a Celebration at Oak Hill Country Club in Fitchburg.  Presidents of the 12 Rotary clubs that were sponsored in Massachusetts by the Fitchburg Club have been invited to attend. The event will also will include the installation of the club officers for 2018-2019 by District Governor-elect Steven T. Sager. Special guest and the current year’s Honorary President, Gerry Martel will be congratulated as having served as President of the club 50 years ago, on the occasion of the club’s 50th anniversary.

On Saturday, June 23, 2018, the Rotary Club of Milford will put on its second annual Outdoor Day. 
The day will showcase two of Milford’s parks which are connected by a portion of Milford’s immensely popular bike path.  Local vendors in the health, wellness, and outdoor spheres will be putting their offerings on display.  There will be kayaks, fishing, a bike parade, and a climbing wall.  Milford’s first responders will be displaying emergency vehicles, there will be a remote-controlled airplane display, there will be yoga in the park, and a ceremonial tree will be planted along the bike path. 
The day will be enjoyable, fun and memorable for all ages. We look forward to seeing you there!
Acton-Boxborough "Goes Wild" and Launches an Endangered Species Awareness Project and Coloring Contest for 3rd Graders

In collaboration and inspired by the efforts of the Rotary Action Group of Endangered Species (RAGES) endangeredrag.org, the Rotary Club of Acton-Boxborough recently developed online materials and a coloring contest to create awareness in third graders about endangered species.

By going on the webpage pictured at the right actonboxboroughrotary.org/rages, these students learned that the endangered Borneo Pygmy Elephant, Borneo Orangutan and the African Rhinoceros are critically endangered species near extinction and what animal conservation groups and RAGES is doing to help. The students  also learned what all of us can do to help, including decreasing the deforestation of the natural habitats of these animals by actively reducing, reusing and recycling our paper products.

Some third graders even took part in our zentangles rhinoceros coloring contest. Congratulations to the students for participating in this project and to all the winners of the coloring contest.

Wow! Wow!! Wow!!! You guys rock!!!!  31 of our clubs applied for District Grants for the 2018-19 Rotary Year with total participation of 36 clubs.  The total budget for these 31 applications is greater than $170,000.
Now, the seven club Foundation Chairs who are on the Grants Review Panel need to do the hard work of helping the grant writers refine the applications and then allocate our limited resources.  The total requests for grants is more than double what we have available for District Grants.  We will make sure that the Grants Review Panel allocates the funds in an equitable and transparent manner with “best use of funds” being the guiding principle.  You may not get all you requested, but we will help you execute your project with Rotary Foundation funds!
The grants that were proposed are varied and interesting.  Here is a short review by Rotary Area of Focus.
Disease prevention and Treatment
Among the grants proposed under this area of focus four clubs wrote grants to address the opioid crisis, others proposed care kits for emergency room visitors in need, first aid course, emergency location devices for individuals with cognitive dysfunction, emotional support dogs, clothing for the needy.
Basic Education and Literacy
Clubs wrote grants for solar panels for electricity in a school in India, sending children to camp in summer, scholarships, dictionary programs, little libraries, summer reading programs.
Economic and Community Development
Clubs wrote grants to improve a gazebo, community gardens, a wheelchair swing, cupola repair, ramps for wheelchairs, benches, improve a walking trail, planting saplings.
Maternal and Child Health
Feeding the hungry is a prominent need identified by our clubs.  Entered were food packaging events, back packs for the weekends, community suppers, community gardens to support food pantries, and beds for children.
As you can see we are touching many people in many ways.  It makes us all proud to be a Rotarian. And we will continue DOING GOOD IN THE WORLD and BE AN INSPIRATION..
