Assistant Governor Don MacMeekin opened Rotary District 7850's area speech contest and had the four contestants pick their order of speaking by lot. The speakers were Rosa Turinetti and Kayla Ball, senior Randolph Union High School students who were sponsored by Randolph's two Rotary clubs; Mary Gile, freshman from Lebanon High School; and Carlos Melgarejo, senior from Kimball Union Academy. The four speakers elucidated our Four Way Test from very different and very effective perspectives. 


The winner of the area speech contest was Carlos Melgarejo, a student attending Kimball Union from Spain. The runner-up in the contest was Mary Gile, who brought with her a family cheering section that included a well-behaved (but enthusiastic) toddler.


  • Three members of the Rotary Club of Lebanon were recognized for their support of the Rotary Foundation. Individuals who have contributed more than $1000 to the Annual Program Fund, the Polio Plus Fund or the Humanitarian Grants Program of the Rotary Foundation are recognized as Paul Harris Fellows.  Today we recognized:
    • Kevin Gould — Received his Paul Harris +4
    • Will Koppenheffer  —  Received his Paul Harris +3
    • Dan Nash — Received his first Paul Harris recognition.


Three students from KUA prepared and delivered speeches emphasizing, "Make a Difference by applying Rotary’s 4-Way Test".

 Carlos was the winner of the contest.  He is from Spain,  He spoke about Global Warming and how we each have a role to play by using renewable energy resources.



Charles, the runner up spoke about a new way to look at masculinity based on compassion, respect and action. 

Elise shared her experience starting a dog walking service at the school.  The proceeds go to supporting animals at the Upper Valley Human

Whether over a short lunch or for two hours a week, the mentoring partnerships create rare opportunities for our Junior Partners to have new experiences and broaden their horizons. For Senior Partner volunteers, it provides a chance to tap into the enthusiasm of youth while offering insight to the challenges facing young people today.
