And the winner of the Milford Rotary Club's Annual Bushel of Fresh Maine Lobster Raffle is............................
Paul Zonghi of Medway.
The Lobsters were delivered to Paul in Medway early this morning by Rotarian Steve Ellis.
Congratulations Paul and a "Big Thank You' to everyone that bought tickets.
We will be running our 3rd annual Bushel of Lobsters Raffle again next year. Posted by FB editor Tom Sawyer.

During his final meeting of the year as President, Mike Kaplan named Rotarians Al Holman and Jane Schroeder as “Rotarians of the Year”. Kaplan noted that, although it is normal to present one award and in some cases no Rotarian of the Year award at all, he felt that Al and Jane had performed way beyond expectations during his year as President - and in past years as well. He thanked Al for all the help on the composition, production, and distribution of the annual Rotary Tab; for his relentless volunteer support at club projects; for the support the Town Criers give to the Club and for stepping up to serve a third term as President when he assumes the office on July 1, 2019. 
Kaplan thanked Jane for her outstanding service as the Club’s Program chair, her work as the editor of the Club’s Rotary Tab, and the amazing work that she does for Rotary’s Eastern States Student Exchange Program with both outbound and inbound students around the world. Kaplan noted, “ Without her passion, commitment, and follow-through, the Student Exchange Program would not happen”. Kaplan also thanked Jane for always being available to assist with any Club Project.
 Kaplan also noted that “both Rotarians are Multi- Paul Harris Fellows” and thanked them both for helping him throughout his year as President.
Big Thank You to all the staff involved in this years Milford Rotary Club's Annual Red Cross Swim Program that ended last Friday at the Fino Field Pool. Based on feedback from some of the parents, we can be very proud of this years team that worked with about 80 swimmers who signed up for the two week session. Popped down last Friday and grabbe a few photos to share.

Rotary would like to extend a special thanks to Peter Filosa and Ron Santacroce, without their help, Rotary could not offer the Summer Swim program. 
And a big thanks to the Town of Milford for allowing Rotary to use the Fino Field Pool.
And one last big thank you to all the parents and grandparents who sign up the swimmers.
Looks like newly elected Rotary President Steve Chaplin hit the road running by signing a $3000 check representing this year’s Rotary donation to the Milford Area Humanitarian Coalition (MAHC) Summer Meals Program. The ceremonial check was signed on June 27th at Bethany Christian Church (BCC) Downtown on Main Street in Milford when BCC hosted Rotary to celebrate the opening of its doors as a MAHC summer meals service center. 
During the luncheon visit, Rotarians were served the same meal served at all MAHC "summer meal" locations including BCC Downtown, the Milford Youth Center, and Memorial School. 
Rotarians were welcomed to BCC Downtown by Pastor Phil McCutchen who spoke about the congregation’s vision for BCC Downtown and the church’s overall commitment to serving the local communities through its many outreach programs. 
Following lunch, Pastor Phil and his wife Cheri shared a video featuring many of the churches outreach programs. Cheri, who serves as the director of BCC’s non-profit organization Compassion New England, noted that “CNE exists to spread hope & love throughout the community through endeavors such as the Blessing Barns in Milford and Mendon, The Happy Place program (which assists individuals with intellectual disabilities and families with children with special needs) as well as Celebrate Recovery and Food Pantry program. CNE also offers classes for GED Prep Studies and English as a Second Language. Cheri is also a Director of the Bethany Christian Academy located on the church’s Mendon Campus. 
Rotary and MAHC are proud to welcome BCC’s participation in the summer meals program. 
Rotary is especially excited about the $3000 donation to MAHC. The larger than normal donation was made possible through a $1500 Matching Grant from Rotary District 7910’s Rotary Foundation Grant Program. MAHC expects to serve over 8000 meals during its Summer Meals Program this year.
Milford Rotary Awards $6000 in College Scholarships.

Ellis commended recipients for their achievements and thanked their parents for their commitment and investment in their children’s futures. Ellis encourages all recipients to continue their dreams and to let opportunity lead them down whatever road of success and excellence that fulfills their life goals.
