Welcome
Welcome to the Rotary Club of East Providence, RI/Seekonk, MA.  
Our Club was founded in 1946 , and is one of 65 clubs in District 7950, which includes the entire State of Rhode Island, southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, and the islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.  We are a fellowship and service organization of men and women dedicated to the principal of "Service Above Self."  We are one of 33,000 clubs in 200 countries with 1.2 million members.   
 
Our community service projects include
 
  • Annual Back-Pack Fair,  providing back packs and school supplies to East Providence elementary school children
  • Boys and Girls Club Christmas Party, providing gifts and pictures with Santa, to many local children
  • $1,000 Scholarships to students of East Providence High School, Career and Technical School, St. Mary's Academy - Bay View, and Seekonk High Schools
  • RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) providing a 3 day Leadership Camp experience for local high school sophomores and juniors
  • Turner Reservoir Annual Clean-Up
We also donate funds for several local causes, including food banks, heating assistance, etc.
Our meetings feature speakers and the opportunity to network and socialize.
If you are interested in serving your community, we would be very interested in meeting you.  Please call Lori DiPersio, Membership Chair at 401-578-5317 or email at ldipersio24@gmail.com.
 
On December 21, 2019, we lost a very vibrant member - Ella Frances Donnelly.  Ella was an Honorary Member, but very rarely missed a meeting, and participated in many of the Club's events and activities.  Ella was the widow of our beloved Bill Donnelly, a 46 yr. member, who held perfect attendance for many years.  We all will miss Ella, but will never forget her!
 
 
On Monday, November 18th, we inducted two new members to our Club and we couldn't be happier.  Congratulations and welcome!

Our Rotary Club hosted a clean-up of the Turner Reservoir on Saturday, November 16th.  Members from our Club along with students from BridgePointe Church and folks from the community came together to clean off bridges and put down new wood chips so that those who use the trail can do so in a much safer environment.  Thank you to all those who came out to help!
 
Thank you to Mayor Bob DaSilva for hosting our Rotary Club at City Hall today.
 
The meeting of September 23, 2019 will be held at East Providence City Hall, 145 Taunton Avenue, East Providence, RI.  The meeting will be hosted by East Providence Mayor Bob DaSilva, and will begin at 12:00 p.m.
 
The Million Dollar Meal is held semi-annually at a local business, where members pay the normal meal price but bring a bag lunch.  The money collected is donated to the Rotary Foundation. 
Another Successful Comedy Night
 
For the second year in a row, the East Providence/Seekonk Rotary held a Comedy Night, put on by Funny For Funds.  Three comics were in the lineup for a night of fun and good laughs.  The proceeds will benefit the East Providence/Seekonk Rotary Scholarship Fund.
 
An added feature this year was a table decorating contest, with a Halloween theme.  Although some were quite decorative, the winner was unquestionably the table belonging to Betty Galligan, whose Halloween theme was apparent to all!!
 
Some of Betty's guests really got into the mood!
 
There were several raffle prizes, beautifully wrapped by a neighbor of Allan Gilmore, which made the prizes even more attractive.
 
Thanks to our sponsors for helping make this a great event:
