Today, the Bow Rotary Club fulfilled it's commitment of $20,000 to the Baker Free Library's Lower Level Renovation project by presenting a check for $20,000 to the Baker Free Library's Trustees, Foundation Directors and Renovation Committee members at our regular meeting.  The presentation was made by Club President Mike Griffin and accepted by Mark Levem, Baker Free Foundation Director and Chair of the Lower Level Renovation Committee.

The $600.000 renovation will include multiple large meeting spaces as well as storage space for historical documents and artifacts related to Bow’s history, which will be publicly accessible through the efforts of the Bow Heritage Commission.  
The Bow Rotary Club had previously pledged $20,000, specifically for completion of the informal meeting area to be known as the "Bow Rotary Community Room" — a space designed to help Bow residents connect. The pledge was contingent on the Town of Bow supporting the project with a $300,000 commitment raised through town warrants.  At the recent 2016 town meeting, a warrant article passed to provide the final payment by the town.  All of the other funds have been raised by private and corporate donations. To date, the library has raised all but approximately $60,000 of their $300,000 portion of the total project.
The Bow Rotary Club welcomes new members throughout the year.  If you are committed to community service and interested in learning more, please email our current Club President by clicking on his or her name under Club Executives & Directors in the left sidebar.
