Doc Fontaine compared "It's a wonderful life" to Boswell Rotary.  What would have happened if there were no Rotary in town.

There would have been no Spring Fair, a big fundraiser.  There would have been no Boswell Ambulance base and modern ambulance.  No lights at the ball field.  There would have been no community center or for that matter Senior Citizens group if there were no community center.  There would have been no scholarships awarded.  There would have been no food donated at Christmas.  There would have thousands of polio vaccinations not given, potentially crippling many.  There would have been no town park.  No steam and power show.  No grants for small projects like eye glasses for the kids, or other medical and dental needs. These are like the mortar between the bricks.
