Super Bingo  

Typically, 200+ bingo players participate in our Super Bingo held in Spring and Fall.  Through the generosity of those who play, we are able to raise funds that go to support many local causes.  We extend our thanks and gratitude to all who participate.  Our fall event took place on October 18, 2015 at the St. Johnsbury Academy Field House.  Watch for details about our spring event.  We hope to see you there!

These are the first cases detected in the country since July 2014, and while this news is disappointing for all Rotary members, we are confident that Nigeria can defeat polio. Rotary provided $500,000 to assist immediately with the outbreak response, and an emergency response plan has been put...
