Happy New Year Everyone!

Here's to 2015
It’s 2015, it’s time to review
What we have done, now what will we do?
Last year we built fences and wheelchair ramps,
Scholarships were given and shelter meals prepared.
We sponsored a movie for the children and laughter was shared.
We met weekly for breakfast and enjoyed many talks
And sang out of tune when it reached 8:40 on the clock!
This year we have decided to sponsor a teen,
RYE gives students a new world to be seen.
In turn we will welcome a Youth Exchange girl or boy,
To share our lives, our country, our love and joy.
International projects to be worked into our agendas,
Appreciation dinner for those who support us.
So much to do, so much to look forward to.
In 2015 lets work on our numbers.
All that we have, all that we know,
New members are certain to help us grow.
Let’s remember those who have moved on and those who have passed,
Their gifts, the memories, are sure to last.
Let’s follow their desire to do great things.
It’s 2015,
Bellows Falls Rotary Club has a lot to bring!
Happy New Year Everyone!
A little silliness to bring to the new year!  
Happy New Year Everyone! Bonnie Clark 2015-01-02 00:00:00Z 0

Thursday July 24th Meeting

Rotarians:  Reminder!!
This Thursday, July 24th there will NOT be a morning meeting.  Do not show up at Kurn Hattin expecting breakfast because you will have to wait a very long time.  
We WILL be meeting at 3:30 p.m., on Thursday the 24th, for a day of FUN which will count as your meeting attendance!  We will be joining, Windham County Sheriff's Department Camp Leadership Challenge cadets, Kurn Hattin students and faculty of Kurn Hattin School, at the ball field, behind the horse barn, at Kurn Hattin.  We will play a fun game of softball followed by a cookout with the students and adults.  
Kurn Hattin will be supplying the meat for the cookout (hamburgers and hot dogs).  We ask all Rotarians attending to bring a salad to share with the group.  May be close to 100 people in attendance.
You do not have to play softball!  Afterall, not everyone will be on the ball field at one time so take the time to talk one on one with the teens and enjoy their company.  
We understand work gets in the way of fun, but this is a great time to bond with future leaders and possibly (hopefully) future Rotarians!  Please make every effort to join us.

Tour de Cure 2014

Posted on Jul 16, 2014
Today, after our regular meeting, many Rotarians stayed to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  The bicycle ride New England Tour de Cure comes through Bellows Falls, stopping at The Vermont Country Store for a rest and nutrition (and to shop)!  Tour de Cure is a 150 or a 550 mile bicycle ride for Diabetes Awareness.  There are riders from all over the country riding.  There are riders with some lovely British accents, etc.  Riders have a choice to do a two day versus a seven day ride to help raise awareness and make a difference in the fight to stop Diabetes.  There are riders who have family members or friends who are affected by the disease.  Then there are the Red Riders.  These are individuals who have Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes helping to support everyone with diabetes and do not let the disease take control of their lives.  They are true heroes. 
These amazing riders request PB & J sandwiches for their stop in Bellows Falls/Rockingham.  Bellows Falls Rotary Club has answered that request for the past five years.  Rotarians offered delicious homemade blueberry jam, homemade peach jam and homemade strawberry rhubarb jam.  Panera Bread in Keene, NH donated ALL of the bread!  Thank you Panera!  
Rotarians Ginger Cook and Bonnie Clark along with Rotarian Hugh Haggarty's lovely wife Betty spent time with the riders and staff/volunteers of the Tour de Cure up at The Vermont Country Store.  
Thank you to all of our sandwich makers ~ Maria, Ginger, Bonnie, Missy, Eric, Theresa,  and Ryan.  Thank you Doreen for picking up the bread at Panera!  Thank you Rotarians for the donations of peanut butter and jelly.

District Conference June 1-3, 2012 Portland, Maine

Posted by Bonnie Clark on Jan 15, 2012


Rotary District 7870

District Conference is scheduled for June 1-3, 2012 at Portland Mariott at Sable Oaks. 

For those of you have attended the conferences in the past, we would be very pleased to see you attend another.  For our new members and established members who have never attended a district conference, You do NOT know what you are missing.  We have the pleasure of meeting the other Rotary Exchange Students who are sponsored by other clubs in our district.  These students are amazing young men and women who have adapted so well to our culture and are coming to their final leg of their stay with us.  You will hear stories from our very own Exchange Student, Trisna Damayante and her friends tell of their experiences while staying with their host familes and what their new families and friends and their exchange experience have come to mean to them.  You visit with new and well established club members from all around our district.  We have an optional black tie evening, enjoying the beautiful attire of all members attending. There are wonderful presentations, speeches and displays.  There is some "free" time to go shopping or to play a game of golf.  Keith is eager to get a team together to beat Past District Governor Chris Parkinson's team.  They have won a number of years in a row!! 

 We would love to see a great contingent of members sign up to give our club a great representation of the wonderful members that we have.  The following link will get you to the registration for the District Conference.  Please do not hesitate.  You will have a blast!
