 Congratulations to the winners of the 7th Annual Bocce Tournament.  Team Larry Rossi took home the bragging rights. Everyone had fun and Methuen Rotary raised money for the Methuen YMCA to help send Methuen kids to camp this summer. It was a "WIN WIN" for everyone involved.  Thanks so much for all the hard work of our bocce committee, our generous sponsors, and everyone that bought tickets, had a team or donated to the raffle.

On June 28, 2019  at Mi, Mexico Lindo Methuen Rotary installed the Officers for the 2019-2020 Year.  It was a time to  celebrate the many accomplishments that occurred during the past year and to look forward to what the new year will bring. President Julie Brady highlighted the many areas in the Methuen  Community where Rotary made an impact this past year.  A few of the things that Rotary was involved in were Holiday  food delivery and making 150 party bags for for Neighbor's In Need,  Island Clean Up, Methuen Special Olympics, Giving away $5750.00 in scholarships to Methuen Students,  Donating $4000.00 to local non-profit's during it's June Jubilee, supporting Methuen Girls Softball & Methuen MSPCA with the annual bocce tournament,  participating in Methuen Day and giving away  free hotdogs, reading to local students,  and partnering with the Methuen Library on the sponsorship of the Little Free Library Project.  This is not accomplished alone, it takes a team of dedicated people who care about their community and want to make a difference.  A few awards were given that night to very deserving members of the Club,  Connie Doto of Connie Doto Real Estate was presented with the Rotarian of  the Year Award.  Her commitment to Rotary and  her community exemplifies the Rotary Motto: Service Above Self. Frank Brucato of Prevue Inspections was presented with the Service Award for his commitment to the Club and for taking on leadership roles over the last few years.  Julie also had the pleasure of awarding  six (6) Paul Harris Fellows to members of the Methuen Club.   The Paul Harris Fellow recognition acknowledges individuals who contribute, or who have contributions made in their name, of $1,000 to Rotary Foundation. There are over 700,000 Paul Harris Fellows today, and they are regarded as “the backbone of the annual support to the Rotary Foundation, and those donations are the only reason that enables Rotarians to carry on a world-wide program of educational and humanitarian programs. Over all it was an exciting evening and  a great way to kick off the new year.

We give food to those in need without judgment, respecting the dignity of each individual.
