Mark M. Smith was awarded a Paul Harris Fellowship by his wife, St. Johnsbury Rotarian Rosie Smith, during St. Johnsbury Rotary Club's social gathering Feb. 23 at the St. Johnsbury Distillery. As a result of her donations to The Rotary Foundation over the last 25 years, Rosie, who is already a Paul Harris Fellow, chose to bestow this honor on her husband. Donors of $1,000 or more to the Annual Programs Fund, PolioPlus or the Humanitarian Grants Program through the Rotary Foundation, or people who have that amount contributed in their name, can be recognized as Paul Harris Fellows. “Rotarians have a tradition of supporting the Foundation by honoring others. At the International Assembly in 1979, incoming Rotary International President James Bomar challenged each Rotary club to make one non-Rotarian a Paul Harris Fellow. The Rotary Club of Pikesville, Maryland, USA, responded by making a donation in the name of Mother Teresa in 1980 … Many other notable figures have been named Paul Harris Fellows, including U.S. President Jimmy Carter, Russian President Boris Yeltsin, U.S. astronaut James Lovell, UN Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar, and polio vaccine developer Jonas Salk. Shown with the Smiths is Jamie Milne, at right, the St. J Club's Rotary Foundation chair.
Cornerstone School’s annual Holiday Boutique was especially successful this year due to the support of the St. Johnsbury Rotary Club and members of the surrounding community. The Rotary Club collected thousands of new and gently-used items to stock the boutique with jewelry, holiday decor, toys, household items, toiletries, books and musical instruments. Students used “kindness cash” to make thoughtful purchases for family and friends. Families were also offered the opportunity to shop during a holiday luncheon. Shown during a successful shopping day are: front row, Asher Lin and Jeanne Graham, program director at the school, as well as a Rotarian; middle row, Sebastian Seroni and Dominic Renaudette; and back row, St. Johnsbury Rotary President Jay Miller, Alex Lunnie, Dylan Boardman and Rotarian Emily Giddings.

The Rotary Club of St. Johnsbury thanks our 2021 - 2022 business sponsors for their support of our youth activities! 
The St. Johnsbury Rotary Club recently partnered with Boxcar & Caboose, located in downtown St. Johnsbury, to hold a book drive on Oct. 1 to benefit the library at Cornerstone School in St. Johnsbury. The school supplied a wish list of 38 books that they hope will be added to the library. For three hours, volunteers from the Rotary club manned the table that displayed a number of the books. Patrons could purchase the books, which will then be donated to the school. In first photo, Amelia Evans holds some of the “wished for” books. In second photo, Quinn Miller arranges the selections available.

Rotarians Help To Beautify Trailhead Pavilion

St. Johnsbury Rotary Club members banded together on July 16 to beautify the Three Rivers Path Trailhead Pavilion at 195 Bay St. in St. Johnsbury, thanks to a grant provided by Rotary District 7850 (representing 42 clubs in Vermont, New Hampshire and Canada) which made the project possible. Other funds for the project were raised through the club's St. Patrick’s Day dinner for 2 fundraiser with Salt Bistro in 2021.

The Town of St. Johnsbury worked with the club to make this project a reality and prepped the garden beds. Discover St. Johnsbury provided support for the plan and ideas and spread the word to local businesses. The mulch came from Kirby Mulch Company LLC.

The club's newest president for the 2022-2023 Rotary year, Jay Miller, of J Miller Landscape Architecture, put together the design, picked up the plants, and kept the volunteers on track during the project.

"After years of planning it was great to see this project become reality and help beautify a great place for people in the community to enjoy for years to come." said Miller. "There are so many people and organizations within the community that made this possible and we could not have done it without them. I hope everybody enjoys the new plantings."

The Trailhead Pavilion is situated at the eastern end of the 93-mile Lamoille Valley Rail Trail. The structure was built as a way to connect the Three Rivers Bike Path to the downtown.


St. Johnsbury Rotary Club Begins New Year With Changeover Recognitions

The St. Johnsbury Rotary Club held its Changeover meeting, in preparation for the 2022-2023 Rotary Year, on June 29, presided over by outgoing president, Brynn Evans.

Evans highlighted some of the Club’s accomplishments for the 2021-2022 Rotary Year:

Service and Fundraising Activities: donated thousands of masks to schools, the welcome center, and other non-profits; provided volunteers and outreach for six Red Cross Blood drives held at the Moose Lodge throughout the year; volunteers read stories at the Athenaeum, and worked during Get Downtown events, worked on Green Up Day; held the annual fruit fundraiser; held a drive at Job Lots in St. Johnsbury for wellness/fun kits for kids — the project of high school senior Emily Ely and in partnership with NEKCA; provided monetary support, assisted with planning and took part in a playground build at Cornerstone School; held a Speech Contest for high school students; provided Community Service Awards to three students and started a new partnership with NKHS to offer an additional award; sent a student from the club’s service area to RYLA, and made it possible for a student from another club in the district to attend; provided more than 6,000 meals to the community through the outreach program, distributed through the NEK Council on Aging; prepped the area around the Bay Street Trailhead Pavilion, thanks in part to funds received through the 2021 St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser and a district grant; held the second annual St. Patrick’s Day Dinner to-go fundraiser.

Donations made during the year included: supporting an international project with Natron Health Care to provide anemia test kits in Tanzania; scholarships for youth to attend athletic sports camps through RecFit; continued support of the youth library at the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum by providing book dedications for the club's speakers; Caledonia County Fair; Fairbanks Museum; First Night North; HELP (shared heat program); Kiwanis pool; District 7850 changeover service project, Rise Against Hunger; Santa Fund; St. Johnsbury Baseball and Softball associations; St. Johnsbury Senior Meal Program.

Because the annual Rotary Basketball Basketball Tournament, an annual fundraiser for the club, was once again called off this past year because of COVID, local businesses provided funding to the club in support of its many projects: Champion Sponsors — Community National Bank, Milne Financial Planning, NFP, NVRH and Passumpsic Savings Bank. Promoter Sponsors — Celtic Marketing, Edward Jones, Northern Counties Health Care, r.k. Miles, Union Bank and Wells River Chevrolet. Supporter Sponsors — Adler & McCabe PLC, Anthony’s Diner, Barrett Insurance Agency LLC, Community Restorative Justice Center, Dan Wyand PT & Associates and Weidmann.

The following awards and special recognition took place:

Honorary St. Johnsbury Rotary memberships were present to two former members. Honorary Rotarian status is used to recognize people who have distinguished themselves by meritorious service and who embody Rotary ideals, or those considered friends of Rotary for their support of Rotary’s causes. The Club’s Board voted to present honorary memberships to Rosie Smith and Archie Prevost. Evans highlighted their service:

“Rosie has been a member of Rotary for more than 20 years, serving as president of the Club for 2007-2008; as assistant governor for District 7850 from 2008-2011, and was in line to be District 7850 Governor (prior to her move to Texas). Rosie was named Rotarian of the Year for the club for the 2008-2009 Rotary year.

“As a member of the club, she kept The Caledonian-Record informed of all the club’s meetings, speakers, events and awards. She organized and recruited the basketball referees to officiate during one of the main fundraisers for the club (the Rotary Basketball Tournament) and served as a referee herself. She also secured auction items for the club’s silent auctions … I’m sure there is much more! Rosie was a joy to have at meetings and her positive attitude was greatly appreciated. In addition, Rosie continues to support our club. She writes articles about our activities for the Caledonian-Record, was willing to assist with referees for the basketball tournament … and was a judge for our community service award process.”

Evans also acknowledged Prevost’s contributions to the club: “Archie was a member of Rotary for more than 40 years. One of our members described him as ‘everybody’s favorite member’ and the ‘most active member — he would volunteer and help with everything.”

Archie was named Rotarian of the year for 2002-2003 and served as president during the Rotary year of 1984-1985. He was also named a Paul Harris Fellow. Archie was the Sargent-at-Arms and led in the singing for years. He stayed in touch with inactive Rotarians and wrote Rotary Foundation notes; he led service projects, and more. He was instrumental in putting together floats for the town parades.

“Thank you, Archie, for all you have done for our community and for our Rotary club. We all hope our club lives up to the example you set," said Evans.

Two Paul Harris Fellow pins were presented to Susan Cherry and Bruce Corrette. These pins are presented to individuals when they donate $1,000 to the Rotary Foundation Annual Fund, PolioPlus, or an approved Foundation grant. People may also be recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow when the amount is contributed in their name.

Evans also presented three special awards. The first one, the Change Maker Award, was given to incoming president, Jay Miller. Miller joined the club in the early days of the pandemic, and “brought enthusiasm, energy, and effort — helping to lead service projects, taking part in meetings, and was always willing to chat about ways our club could continue to have an impact on the community, despite the challenges we faced," according to Evans. He agreed to be the vice president before being a member for a full year. Miller helped the club to envision a new way of doing things and will lead the club in focusing on service to the community.

Evan presented the Inspirational Rotarian Award to Bruce Corrette. “Bruce has been a member of the club for the past 54 years! He was Rotarian of the Year in 1976-77 and President from 1977-1978. He has been a leader in our club, filling many roles, and always taking part as an active member.”

Corrette was one of the first Paul Harris Fellows for the club and this year he became a member of the Paul Harris Society. The Paul Harris Society recognizes Rotary members and friends of The Rotary Foundation who elect to contribute $1,000 or more each year to the Annual Fund, PolioPlus Fund, or approved global grants.

Evans added, “The club did not have anyone who had received the Paul Harris Fellow designation after more than 50 years as a club. So a group of members, including Bruce, all put money into a fund to raise the $1,000 amount … they chose someone out of the group to receive the designation. The first person was Dr. Edward Cramton. He ended up writing a check out for the full amount, and that left 5 others to be chosen, including Bruce. Bruce said he waited until the other 4 people (Wesley Calderwood, Frank Landry, Laine Vance and Sterry Waterman) were pinned before accepting his pin.”

The last award — Rotarian of the Year Award — was presented to Jim McFaul.

Evans said, “Jim’s belief in our youth programs, international projects, and more has kept some of our traditional projects going. Jim led our work as sponsors of the Red Cross Blood Drive at the Moose Lodge … He volunteered for every single blood drive — taking time out of his work day to volunteer 6 or more hours each time, as well as encouraging others to help and coordinating with those volunteers."

McFaul organized the club’s St. Johnsbury Rotary Speech Contest and Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA) scholarship program. He helped undertake an International Project, coordinating with Melanie Finn of Natron Healthcare to support anemia test kits for women in Tanzania. He was also instrumental in coordinating a donation to support youth athletic camps through the St. Johnsbury Recreation Department.

Evans congratulated McFaul, saying, “You are always willing to step up to help when needed, working behind the scenes to help our club work. This even includes picking up the Rotary mail on a regular basis … As a board member, your input, advice, and support helped us to move forward, and I appreciate how you helped us to look at things from various perspectives. Jim, your contributions this year have been phenomenal and we are so grateful for all you have done!”

In addition to the Rotarian of the Year plaque, McFaul was also given a Paul Harris Fellow recognition.

Under the 2022-2023 theme for Rotary, “Imagine Rotary,” the new leadership for the St. Johnsbury Rotary Club was welcomed: President Jay Miller; President Elect Barry Waldner; Treasurer Brynn Evans (Bob Hersey was acknowledged for having filled this role for a number of years); Assistant Treasurer Katheryn Laferriere; and Secretary Jamie Milne.

"Our Rotary Club is proud to support our area youth with this donation. We have a long-standing tradition of making donations to help kids attend summer camps," said Brynn Evans, President of St. Johnsbury Rotary. "Our members know that summer activities are an important part of keeping kids engaged and active. Thank you to St. Johnsbury Academy for making these camps possible." 
Thank you to our Champion Sponsors who make donations like this possible: Milne Financial Planning, NVRH, Community National Bank, Passumpsic Bank, and NFP

St. Johnsbury Rotary held the annual Club Speech Contest on Monday, March 14, 2022 via zoom. Three St. Johnsbury Academy Students from Tom Lovett's Speech Class competed. 
The topic was "How can your school partner with Rotary to change lives?"
Payton Molleur was the winner with his speech on ideas for St. Johnsbury Academy and St. Johnsbury Rotary to partner to help raise the voices of marginalized individuals, help foster connections between community leaders and individuals who are experiencing financial insecurity or homelessness, and to raise the alarm on these issues through seminars, conferences, and public outreach.
2nd place was Clara Andre with her speech about creating a Rotary Women's Mentorship Program to provide professional mentorship for female students who are interested in business. This could also include an Annual Women in Leadership Conference.
3rd place was Greer Kennedy with her speech on creating a leadership media platform for high school students that could provide peer tutoring, international connections, and service & youth leadership opportunities.
Payton will go on to compete in the Rotary District 7850 round of the speech contest to be held on May 7th. Thank you to all of the students for their inspiring ideas!

St. Johnsbury Rotary Club member, Bruce Corrette, recently achieved the Paul Harris plus-6 designation for his support of the Rotary Foundation. A member of the St. Johnsbury Rotary Club for 53 years, he has been an inspiration to other Rotarians, and a true believer in the mission of Rotary. He will also become a member of the Paul Harris Society — those who give a $1,000 a year to the Rotary Foundation.

Jamie Milne, chair of the Club’s Rotary Foundation, said, “Bruce has been a long time member of the St. Johnsbury Rotary Club. Not only has he supported our club’s service projects, he has supported the Rotary Foundation and is a multiple Paul Harris Award recipient. Members receive a Paul Harris Award for every $1,000 they donate to the Rotary Foundation. Bruce’s leadership in our community is a great example of Rotary’s motto, “service above self.” We are proud and lucky to have him as a member of our club.”

Of his award, Bruce said, “I give to the Rotary Foundation because I’d do anything to support Rotary’s programs and they need this money to fight Polio.”

Bruce is one of the first members of the St. Johnsbury club to become a Paul Harris fellow. Jamie Milne, at right, recently presented him with the award.

St. Johnsbury Rotary continues to have adult and children disposable masks available for donation to the local community. These donations are made possible by the Ted Rossi Foundation and the New England Rotary Million Mask Challenge through Rotary District 7850.

St. Johnsbury Rotary Club Welcomes New Leadership For 2021-2022
The St. Johnsbury Rotary Club held it's annual Club Changeover on June 21, conducted by outgoing president, Katheryn Laferriere, and welcoming 2021-2022 club president, Brynn Evans, along with the new president-elect, Jay Miller.
To begin the meeting, Katheryn spoke of the challenges presented to her during a year of a pandemic: "I want to take a minute to just recognize the strange and unprecedented set of circumstances that Covid-19 threw at us this year … and how our club rallied and turned those lemons into lemonade.
"For me, I’d never thought about meeting virtually before. Then, just as I was supposed to take over as President last summer, I also was offered a job out of town that would have prevented me from fulfilling my obligation as President. Any other year, I would have had to resign. But because of the strange circumstances of this past year, because of Zoom, and our club’s willingness to change, I was able to preside over all the meetings from my office in New Hampshire.
"What a blessing that was for me. It was such a comfort to stay connect to all of you and my community during that time. Thank you for being there for me and for being willing to be so flexible."
Katheryn then recognized the special efforts made by several Rotarians during the 2020-21 year.
The next Red Cross Blood Drive sponsored by St. Johnsbury Rotary will take place on Wednesday, August 4th from 12:00 -5:30 pm. 
To sign up to give blood, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit and enter: moose. 
We are also seeking club members to volunteer to assist at the event. Sign up online, or contact Jim McFaul to learn more.

St. Johnsbury Rotary President Katheryn Laferriere stated, “Our club is so grateful for all the work that Kamp IWannaHavFun does for the benefit of the children in our community. We’re thrilled for the outpouring of support for our 1st ever March for Kamp event and thank all those who participated.”
Participants donated $31 to walk 31 miles in the 31 days of March and their efforts raised just over $2,800 for the scholarships. The Rotary Club donated an additional $1,000 to the effort.

On February 22nd, Mary Parent was inducted as the newest member of our club. Mary was welcomed during our regular weekly zoom meeting. 
Mary is a corporate and commercial attorney with Downs Rachlin Martin PLLC, practicing primarily in Vermont and New Hampshire. She is a native Vermonter and has lived in the NEK with her family since 2005. Mary is committed to being a part of the community and adds Rotary to her long list of past and present involvement.
Mary currently serves as Vice-Chair for the NVRH board and is on the St. Johnsbury regional advisory board for Union Bank. She also chairs a professional responsibility panel for the Vermont Bar Association. 
Mary resides in St. Johnsbury with her husband and two sons. In her spare time she enjoys gardening and hiking with her dog. 
We are excited to sponsor this fundraiser for St. Johnsbury Recreation Department's popular Kamp IWannaHavFun.
