Boston Rotaract congratulates Anu Rayamajhi for receiving Paul Harris Fellow recognition. District Governor Sheryl Meehan and Robert Gravino visited our meeting to surprise Anu with the honor.
The Paul Harris Fellow recognition was established in 1957 to honor individuals who donate over $1000 to The Rotary Foundation. Anu earned this recognition by personally raising $1000 for Healthy Kids/Brighter Future, which became $2500 through matching grants. She was inspired to act after the nonprofit's founder Lonnie Hackett spoke to our club in December 2015. She collected the money through small donations from friends, coworkers, and Rotaractors.
Boston Rotaract is proud to have Anu as a member. She exemplifies Service Above Self. She worked hard to raise that money for a great cause. We aspire to be a club that empowers young people to change the world. Anu shows we are well on our way.

On Thursday, August 11th, four members volunteered at the Meals Program by Victory Programs' Boston Living Center's. The Boston Living Center describes itself as "a non-profit community and resource center whose mission is to foster the wellness of all HIV positive people and respond to the changing needs of the HIV/AIDS community." Our members had a great time serving meals to the community. Local Service Chair Daniel Kallen had this to say of the event:
We all had an awesome time helping out at the Boston Living Center. I was in the kitchen cleaning dishes, while everyone else was working the line serving food.
I think Boston Living Center is a great organization because the people I met there were all awesome, both staff and visitors. Also, I like the idea that it's targeted towards the HIV+ community, as low income HIV+ is a particularly vulnerable community. The people were great, the host was hilarious, and we all got to eat some awesome empanadas. The Boston Living Center is an awesome organization, and I look forward to scheduling more events with them in the future.
Thanks for sharing Daniel! Check out the some more photos from the event here. Most importantly, let us know if you are interested in volunteering at the Meal's Program in the future here.

Amy was joined by Mallory McCoy, the outgoing president of Boston Rotaract and the newly appointed District Rotaract Representative.
