Thus commences the weekly Hanover Rotary Club bulletin published by the club's new Program Director, David Allen. Please provide feedback to me at dallenminn@gmail, especially if you have suggestions for bulletin improvements or recommendations for speakers!
As always, the club meeting starts promptly at noon on Wednesday at Jesse's Steakhouse.
The Dismas House is an important Upper Valley resource facilitating the transition of inmates from our penal system to responsible members of the community. Jeff Backus, the Dismas House manager will be our speaker this week.
Also, Kevin Wenger's term as club president begins with this meeting. Let's have great attendance to welcome Kevin into his new position!
  • On the morning of July 9, we are helping with Prouty by staffing a sag station at the Dartmouth Skiway for bicyclists. Please let Jim Bonney know if you'd like to help.
  • The Hanover Rotary does many great things for our community, but it takes many people to get it all done. Some areas where we need your help:
     - All Rotarians: help Bruce Atwood with the Auction/Gala. We have a matching grant for $75,000, but we need to raise another $75,000 to earn it.
     - A leader for bell ringing in November and December.  We've been supporting Listen's fuel assistance program for about twenty years and the last two years we raised $25,000 or more -- but we need someone to step up and organize this year's effort.
     - A leader for our Youth Committee. Jed Williamson is willing to co-lead, but needs someone else to make sure important programs like the speech competition, RYLA and youth exchange happen.
     - Greeters for our weekly meetings. Sign up here:
