Club News

 The Board approved the following donations at the recent board meeting:

•  $1,000 to Boy Scouts for the food at their 100th anniversary event Memorial Day weekend at the new fire station. Club members and town dignitaries will be invited to attend.

•  $1,000 to Gino Fratallone's St. Vincent De Paul Arizona food project.

•  $3,000 to Puerto Rico recovery efforts. Jim Fusco, Gary Hough and others at the Foundation were very appreciative for this donation as the fundraising goal is $25,000 and our Club’s donation increased the funds raised to $17,000.

•  Up to $1,200 to the Friends of the COA to sponsor the St. Patrick’s Day luncheon.

 Gary Hough is leading a District 7910 committee soliciting donations for Puerto Rico’s hurricane relief efforts. In particular the town of Moca located in

the northwest corner of Puerto Rico was hit hard and is still devastated. Donations will be used for flu and tetanus vaccinations, shelter restoration supplies and toys for children.

The Rotary Foundation dispersed a $25,000 grant that will be supplemented by another $25,000 collected by Rotary clubs such as ours, Rotaract and Interact.

The Moca Rotary Club will oversee 100% of the donations and they will purchase needed items in Puerto Rico to help stimulate the local economy.

Three District members plus nine Rotarians are going to Moca to assist in relief efforts from February 2-5.

 

                                                                                                 

 Board Members voted to increase the number of RYLAN’s from six to eight (plus two alternates) this year. LHS sophomore candidates will be interviewed March 15.

 Our own Club Member Gino Fratallone spoke about being named ActonTV’s Member of the Year . It all started three years ago when Gino was visiting in Arizona.

He talked with a Mexican woman, who thought Gino was a Colonel with all of his Rotary pins, and asked whether Rotary could provide financial assistance to feed 78 people in need. Reaching that goal to provide food for two years would require raising $6,500. Gino considered how to do this and used his voice to start fundraising. Literally. With the help of his friends at local TV programs in Acton, Westford and Littleton, Gino recorded 150 songs, which are now available on CD’s, and he’s been selling the CD’s, so far raising $2,600 toward the goal! ActonTV recognized Gino for his work raising funds for Arizona’s needy.  Congratulations Gino!

 

 

 Members provided the Monarch Café Chef a bonus to thank him for his weekly work. The club moved its weekly meetings there in the Fall.
