What's Happening
Welcome to Peterborough, NH production.
The Peterborough Rotary Club kicked off the holiday season yesterday by decorating the Town House and the two downtown bridges. The Club has enjoyed putting up these festive decorations for decades.
Pictured are:  Norm Makechnie, Laura Gingras, Cole Royal, Bob MacDonald, Jeff Crocker, Kim Chandler, Ed Walker, Andy Peterson and John Kaufhold.
The Peterborough Rotary Club was honored to present a Paul Harris Fellow (+4) to our "visiting" Rotarian, Jim Rogers. Jim is a member of a Club in Georgia yet spends half of the year with us in Peterborough. District Governor Dennis McMann came to present this honor to Jim. Jim is a valued member of Rotary and we are fortunate to have him with us. The Club is grateful for your contributions and your service to Rotary. Congratulations, Jim!
The Peterborough Rotary Club is once again gearing up to meet the holiday needs of families in the greater Peterborough area. Your help is needed to direct our efforts in providing Christmas gifts for young children of the area’s most needy families. This is our 31st year!
By mid November, Operation Santa posters will be posted in many retail and business locations throughout the area. You can help by taking a gift card from the poster, purchase the gift, and return the gift to the poster location. It's easy!
For those who prefer to make a financial contribution to Operation Santa, checks can be made payable to the “Peterborough Rotary Club – OPERATION SANTA” and mailed to the Peterborough Rotary Club, PO Box 354, Peterborough, NH 03458-0354.

ConVal Superintendent Kimberly Rizzo Saunders was officially inducted into the Peterborough Rotary Club at the November 7th meeting. Saunders was welcomed by Club President Kim Chandler.

On November 30, 2016, the Waterhouse Restaurant will donate 10% of all proceeds to the Camp QUEST program. This is a wonderful opportunity for Rotarians to not only have a fabulous dinner but to raise funds for QUEST.
Please make your reservations ASAP by calling the Waterhouse at 924-4001.
Our Club is always welcoming new members!
Peterborough Rotary Club has supported our community for over 90 years. We are a leadership development and service organization right in our community. Our group is made up of thoughtful and caring individuals who happen to be community leaders, local business owners, and local professionals. Many of our members also participate in other local service organizations like the Boy Scouts, Daughters of the American Revolution, Windy Row Learning Center, Monadnock Art X, The River Center, Mariposa Museum, Monadnock Center, just to list a few.
Our focus is uplifting and supporting our youth. We accomplish youth support through Rotary Youth Exchange, Scholarships, Camp QUEST, Operation Santa, Four Way Test Speech Contest, and ConVal InterACT. We raise funds to support these endeavors through the annual Pancake Breakfast and the Cruz-In. Finally, we support and maintain Rotary-Wilder Park in Peterborough.

The Peterborough Rotary Club recently hosted Phyllis Gagnon, Daughters of the American Revolution Service for Veterans Committee Vice-Chair, Northeast Division. Gagnon is also the 2015 State Winner of the New Hampshire Daughters of the American Revolution Veteran Volunteer Award.
Gagnon challenged the Peterborough Rotary Club to partner with some of the well-established groups that support and honor veterans, and she distributed information about Veterans Count, a non-profit veterans outreach of Easter Seals. She also provided the Veterans Count “Thank You Veteran” windshield cards, which provide an anonymous way to acknowledge the military service of those whose parked vehicle displays a Veterans’ license plate.
