COMMUNITY SERVICE ACTIVITY FOR THE WEEK

The Needham Rotary volunteers gathered Saturday morning (April 11th) at the Needham Community Farm (NCF) to build new raised garden beds and to repair damaged beds just ahead of planting season!  Located at the site of the former Nike anti-aircraft missile battery next to the new Needham dog park, the NCF provides fresh produce for the Needham and area food banks.   Staffed entirely by volunteers, NCF is helping provide fresh food for the "food insecure" population of our town!

 
Led by Jim Brown, a team of a dozen Rotarians got busy cutting wood, laying out new beddings and screwing boards together.
 
 
Needham Rotarians showed up with drills, saws, an electric generator, shovels and wheelbarrows and with the skills and focus required to build out five new beddings for the Needham Community Farm!
 
 
Finally resting on their "laurels," the work crew celebrated three hours of time well-spent in helping feed those in need in Needham!  We could have built even more bedding boxes if we hadn't run out of lumber!  Great teamwork!
 
 
Even 88 year old Ron Sokol and his child bride, Lois, got involved in moving compost and soil into the new beddings!
 
 
 
 

Let the Music Flow in Needham!

The wonderful sounds of music in Needham surrounded us at our meeting of March 3rd as we welcomed the winners of the Rotary Music Competition held in January of 2015 at Powers Concert Hall in Needham!  The Needham High School male a capella group, The Subway Dwarfs, and twelve year old singer and keyboardist, Mackenzie Clement, serenaded us.  Our weekly singing of "America the Beautiful" and our "Welcome Song" for guests has NEVER sounded so melodious!

As winners of our Music Competition, The Subway Dwarfs and Mackenzie Clement, each received a cash prize presented by Rachel, Greg and Bill, and were treated to a great luncheon at the Sheraton.  We also got to hear a little about the future plans of the graduating senior singers from Needham High School.

Mackenzie was joined by her father, who is also her manager, photographer and sound technician!   As a bonus, Needham Rotarian Bob Dunning, who is a life-long friend of Mackenzie's family, enthusiastically joined in the music and celebration!  Thanks to Greg, Rachel and Bill for their leadership in the Music Competition Program!

Bill also presented a check to Ms. Kate Findlen of the Needham "Friends of Music" to help support music education and performance programs at Needham High School.
