The Award, the Paul Harris Fellowship, consists of presentation of a Medallion, a lapel pin, and a certificate of recognition. Additional contributions are recognized by presenting the donor with a lapel pin with sapphires representing the number of additional $1,000 amounts given. Bob has been sustaining contributor to the Rotary Foundation for years and recognizes the incredible bang-for-the-buck his donations make in expanding the worldwide projects of Rotary. Congratulations, Bob! Your generosity is so appreciated.
 
 

 
 
Littleton Rotarian, Bob Young, recently organized a Rotary volunteer day to help in the building of a new Habitat for Humanity home. Bob has long been involved in the building efforts of the organization and has spearheaded past Rotary volunteer days for this outstanding program. Much of the work on this particular home was on interior and exterior finish. A mild day provided work great working conditions both inside and out. Congratulation and thanks to all 10 Rotary Club volunteers who worked to help make the dream of home ownership become a reality for a very deserving family.

Each year, the Littleton Rotary Foundation sponsors “Breakfast with Santa”, the community event for families to enjoy a pancake breakfast coupled with a visit from St. Nick. Littleton Rotary Club members volunteer their time to wait tables, greet families, help in the kitchen, and generally ensure that everyone has a great time.
 
 
 
The 2015 Alferd Packer Bacon Party, the major Club fundraising event to benefit the Littleton Rotary Foundation, was held on Saturday, August 29th and was a complete success. While attendance was slightly less than last year, funds raised were on par with expectations.
 
Littleton Rotarian, Bobbi McCombs, persuaded her employer to contribute 145 lbs. of Boar’s Head Brand Bacon which Club members cooked up and offered as free samples to the patrons. Thank you, Bobbie, for helping ensure that critical element of our party was handled so perfectly.

A big Littleton Rotary welcome to Regitze Gade who comes to us from Denmark. Like so many of our international students, Regitze speaks perfect English and is happily settling in with club member, Drew Lang and his family.

Thanks to Evening Meeting Rotarian, Annika Merkel (pictured), the residents at Libby Bortz Assisted Living Center in downtown Littleton continue to enjoy an evening of singing and horse racing. Yes, horse racing. It’s a game of chance based on a throw of the dice – very large dice. The number thrown moves the stick horse that number of spaces toward the finish line. The smiles and laughter are the reward for a little bit of volunteer time Rotarians spend with these dear people. You’re encouraged to contact either Annika or B. Bianchi to learn more and volunteer at this once-a-month happy activity.
 

 
 
Littleton Rotary’s annual spring cleanup/fix-up project, Hands Across Littleton was once again a complete success.
 
 


I Can Read and Homework Club at Centennial Academy

It's a special time for students when Rotarians and community members volunteer to participate in the I Can Read Program at Centennial Academy of Fine Arts. This simple and effective program pares volunteers with teachers and select students to share time in supporting reading skills by simply listening to students read.
