Little Free Libraries
PARK 'N' READ: Have you noticed the handmade Little Free Libraries popping up in our parks and other spots? They are a team effort between Nevins Library staffers, the Rotary Club of Methuen, Methuen High art students, real estate agent Dianne Debs, City Limits Woodworking & the Methuen DPW. The libraries (which each hold about 40 books for all ages) are in place at DeGaspe Park and Riverside Park, with at least 7 more spots designated to receive a box.   Read more about this awesome project in the August issue of Methuen Life

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.

Rotary Club of Methuen was proud to donate $500.00 on #Givingtuesday to our local food pantry Neighbor's In Need. Members  helped distribute Thanksging meals to the less fortunate.  Neighbors in Need has fed the poor and Hungry of Greater Lawrence for 35 years. We give food to those in need without judgment, respecting the dignity of each individual. All food, formula, diapers, and infant clothing are provided free of charge to those who request them. Neighbors in Need feeds over 850 families each week at our 13 Food Pantries strategically located in the neighborhoods, providing food to most Lawrence residents within walking distance of their homes. They have 2 pantries in Methuen and now, 1 in Andover. Methuen Rotary is proud to partner with them.  To learn more visit www.needfood.org.
