Club recognized for charitable giving
The Westborough Rotary Club was honored for the most cumulative donations to the Rotary Foundation, at the District 7910 Foundation Forum in November. President Jim O'Connor and Foundation Chair Evelyn Ware accepted the award on behalf of the club.
The Rotary Foundation, formed in the name of Paul Harris, the founder of Rotary, is the charitable arm of Rotary. Rotarians and friends of Rotary support the Foundation’s work through voluntary contributions. The Foundation's mission is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.
Recent Foundation grants received by our club supported projects in:
Nicaragua, El Tololar, – Sterile Medical Equipment
Guatemala – Rainwater Recovery Project
Honduras – Roatan Clinic, UMass Surgical Mission
Our club loves the holidays in Westborough!
Keep an eye out in the coming weeks for Rotarians and the WHS Interact Club, who are hard at work planning the November 29 Tree Lighting and Santa's arrival. Our Free Holiday Store Committee is also working with Westborough Youth and Family Services to get the store stocked and ready for the season. It's a fun time to be a Westborough Rotarian!
Two of our biggest events of the year, the Westborough Spring Festival and the Sprint Triathlon, have been scheduled! Mark your calendar for May 6, 7, and 8, 2016 for Spring Festival, and August 14, 2016 for Triathlon.
