Pictured are students from the BCC STEM club that designed a 6-week hands-on Green Technology Educational program and taught it to youth at Greater Fall River Re-Creation.  These college students did an incredible job of developing the whole curriculum and engaging the young students in learning each week.  They combined hands on projects and power point presentations to teach about the impact of going green. 
It is great to see the enthusiasm of these young people.  How lucky we are as a club to have the opportunity to support this great partnership!

meet with members of the WalMart Team to accept a check to support the Happy Feet Program.
How can you help support Happy Feet?  Did you recently receive a rewards coupon from Bob's Store or Jockey or some other favorite retail location, but don't really need anything?  Don't let it expire, instead purchase some children's socks to help support our Happy Feet program.  Kids socks (generally sizes 9-3 and 3-9, although there may be some variation) will be collected on an ongoing basis and can be brought to any Thursday meeting.  White crew socks are preferred.

Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
