CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF SERVICE IN WESTBOROUGH & BEYOND
 
 
As we celebrate the club's 50th anniversary, one member of our club has a unique perspective.....Nelson Ball. Paul McGrath spent some time with Nelson Ball in the Westborough TV studios reflecting on 50 years of Service.  Watch Paul's interview with Nelson, which includes Nelson's reminiscences of our first 50 presidents.  Thanks to Westborough TV who produced and owns the copyright for the video. 
 
 
 
 
 
Members of the Westborough Rotary Club and the community at large were saddened by the loss of Charlotte Spinney on July 24. Charlotte was an icon in our community and an inspiration to all who knew her. Charlotte served on various community boards including Habitat for Humanity, Westborough Rotary, United Way, Westborough Library Trustees, and the YWCA. For many years she was a Corporator, Trustee, and Director of Westborough Savings Bank later the Avidia Bank. She was a charter member of the Mewhinney Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame and was the co-founder of the Charlotte Spinney Vision Scholarship.
 
Contributions in her memory may be sent to the Charlotte Spinney Vision Scholarship, c/o Avidia Bank, 100 East Main St., Westborough, MA 01581 or Bristol First Responders, Bristol Fire Department, New Harbor, ME 04554
 
 
When I first joined Rotary ten years ago, I had no idea what Rotary was all about.  I didn’t know if Rotarians wore funny hats, practiced mysterious rituals or had secret handshakes.  I didn’t understand the mission of Rotary, its basic principles or the breadth and scope of the organization.  But what I discovered when I went to that first meeting was a group of men and women who genuinely wanted to do good in this world, and somehow, make a difference.
 
Rotarians are servant-leaders. There are many reasons why someone first joins a Rotary Club, but invariably, those members who stay, who make Rotary part of their life fabric, are here to serve. And we do so by empowering others – our members, our partners, and those whom we help. 
On May 11th, Westborough Rotarians joined with other Rotarians & friends from District 7910 to help build housing for pigs and chickens at Cultivate Care Farms in Bolton, MA.  We also rebuilt a fire pit, and, several lucky Rotarians had the pleasure of "mucking out" a barn. Cultivate Care Farms'  mission is to operate, maintain, and expand Care Farming for humans and animals to heal and grow therapeutically through mental health, wellness, and community outreach programming. See https://cultivatefarms.org to learn more about their program.
