The Food Pantry lends a helping hand to those in Duxbury and the surrounding communities in need of food.
With that cause in mind, Duxbury Rotary presented the Lion's Club with a check for $500 to go towards the Food Pantry.

The following appeared in the June 18, 2014 of The Duxbury Clipper

 

As residents and visitors prepare for a summer full of activities and adventures, one organization is hoping to bring attention to the plight of those in town who are less fortunate.

After learning about several families in town who are struggling to make ends meet, the Duxbury Rotary Club decided to set up a fund that they would use in conjunction with the South Shore Community Action Committee (SSCAC) to help those in need. The fund, called the Good Neighbor Fund, has been opened at Eastern Bank, and is ready for donations.

Fred L’Ecuyer, Rotary member, said the club was inspired to set up the fund after working with the Duxbury Interfaith Council to raise money for their “camperships,” which help students in Duxbury attend summer camp. The campership program serves more than 90 students each summer.

“While the popular view is that Duxbury is a wealthy town, the fact is that some of our families do fall on hard times,” he said.

L’Ecuyer said the Rotary Club hopes to use funds from their four annual events — the Casino Night, Dance Night, Duck Race, and Holiday par- ty— for the Good Neighbor Fund. The fund is open for donations, which can be made through Eastern Bank, the SS- CAC or the Rotary Club.

When the SSCAC identifies a family in need, they will reach out to the Rotary Club and let them know what the family needs. The family’s name will remain anonymous to the Rotary Club, who will evaluate the level of need and approve the appropriate amount of funds to be given to that family. L’Ecuyer stressed the importance of families in need remaining anonymous throughout the entire process.

“[The Rotary Club] will never know who it is we are helping,” he said. “The point is just to know that someone is in need and provide them with assistance.”

Hi everyone -

Late last night, RYLA student leader Mike Manning of the Bridgewaters club posted the note below on Facebook.  He is reading this in English class today.  I believe it is addressed to you


A Thank You
 
I made my way into the dimly lit cafeteria, lights centered on the meeting between the people who have changed my life. To my back, the faint chirp of crickets, and as I enter, the buzz of the drink machine which fuels me during these late night excursions. Invited to sit and join, I felt the warm welcome of those I think so highly of. We continue the conversations concerning everything from logistics to why we're even there to begin with. Drifting further into the wee hours of the morning, the camp sound asleep, and the five of us running on fumes, our consciences slip from us as our minds are let loose.
Then it hits me.

At this point it's been just over a year since the beginning of what has easily been the greatest year of my life, and I come to the sudden realization of why I'm in that cafeteria, why Greg, Paul, Beth, and Nikki, are in that cafeteria, why Brooks and Charlie are in the art center, all while everyone else recuperates in bed.
Rotary goes further than “service above self,” and is much larger than a “service organization” of 1.2 million members. Rotary is incredibly abstract. There is no set mold for a Rotarian and it is literally impossible to define one. A Rotarian has a passion – one to help others, one to make a difference. These are people who sacrifice blood, sweat, tears, sleep, nutrition, time. They go to all ends of the Earth, giving absolutely everything they have, as a manifestation of their passions.
Rotarians have the uncanny ability to leave you both inspired and in awe. Their compassion, their unwavering commitment, their sheer strength of will. It is impossible to fathom the levels of these qualities which true Rotarians hold. They have a purity of character like none other, and are unique in almost every way. They do not rest until they feel their duty has been fulfilled, yet they are never fully satisfied, never fully finished. They sell themselves short, yet they give more than one could possibly imagine.

Rotarians have a passion for people – to do right by them. They give a helping hand in a time of need. They lend their heart and soul to something no one else would. They go out on a limb for a complete stranger, fully aware of any risk involved. They are both fearless and shameless, because the thought of failure has little to no effect on their aspirations.

1.2 million of these kinds of people belong to a club. There are millions, if not billions more that exist in the world. They are of both genders, all ages, all professions, and all walks of life. I would not even resemble the person I am today if not for Rotarians. Difficult to define, but easy to recognize, these are the people who have changed the lives of many. These are the people who have transformed my life completely, and continue to do so.

How about you?

We believe strongly in the Rotary philosophy of "Service Above Self." Our members give their time each week to raise funds for worthy projects, stay on top of  issues facing the community,  and do what we can to make life better for people here and around the world. We have fun doing it, too.  Our club meets each Tuesday morning at 7:00 am at the Duxbury Senior Center at the corner of Tremont (3A) and Mayflower Streets

We're a small club in a small town, but we accomplish a lot!  Last year we  gave scholarships to  graduating High School seniors, helped the Interfaith Council , hosted the town's Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony, and continued fundraising with our annual Duck Race, and Mother's Day Breakfast for other local worthy causes. 

We're particularly proud of our work in Afghanistan.  Led by Past President Razia Jan, an Afghan native, we hosted two events in 2008 featuring Khaled Hosseini, author of the best-selling novels The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. An amazing outpouring of support helped us raise over $150,000, enough to build The Zabuli Education Center, a free school for girls and women in the community of Deh'Subz.  Denied access to education by the Taliban, girls in a now free and democratic Afghanistan are hungry for education.  Because of our efforts, 300 girls now have a chance for an education, and with it, a better life. We continue to support The Zabuli School and have an integral role with Razia as a club member. To learn more about how you can help, visit www.thezabulischool.org.

We continue to grow our membership of excited professionals who want to turn their desires for a better world into realities through action. Bring your enthusiasm and your project for a better community and a better world to Rotary where you can truly implement change.Come learn more about Rotary, The Duxbury Rotary club welcomes you to attend a club meeting. Contact our club president Steve DuBuque at stevedubu@comcast.net

 

The Duxbury Rotary Club has been serving our community since 1950. Lynda MacDonald 2011-04-26 13:59:37Z 0

At this point it's been just over a year since the beginning of what has easily been the greatest year of my life, and I come to the sudden realization of why I'm in that cafeteria, why Greg, Paul, Beth, and Nikki, are in that cafeteria, why Brooks and Charlie are in the art center, all while everyone else recuperates in bed.
Rotary goes further than “service above self,” and is much larger than a “service organization” of 1.2 million members. Rotary is incredibly abstract. There is no set mold for a Rotarian and it is literally impossible to define one. A Rotarian has a passion – one to help others, one to make a difference. These are people who sacrifice blood, sweat, tears, sleep, nutrition, time. They go to all ends of the Earth, giving absolutely everything they have, as a manifestation of their passions.
Rotarians have the uncanny ability to leave you both inspired and in awe. Their compassion, their unwavering commitment, their sheer strength of will. It is impossible to fathom the levels of these qualities which true Rotarians hold. They have a purity of character like none other, and are unique in almost every way. They do not rest until they feel their duty has been fulfilled, yet they are never fully satisfied, never fully finished. They sell themselves short, yet they give more than one could possibly imagine.

Rotarians have a passion for people – to do right by them. They give a helping hand in a time of need. They lend their heart and soul to something no one else would. They go out on a limb for a complete stranger, fully aware of any risk involved. They are both fearless and shameless, because the thought of failure has little to no effect on their aspirations.

1.2 million of these kinds of people belong to a club. There are millions, if not billions more that exist in the world. They are of both genders, all ages, all professions, and all walks of life. I would not even resemble the person I am today if not for Rotarians. Difficult to define, but easy to recognize, these are the people who have changed the lives of many. These are the people who have transformed my life completely, and continue to do so.

How about you?
