The Rotary Club of Lynn's Scholarship Committee had a very difficult time, after reviewing some 29 applications from nine area high schools where Lynn seniors attend, before finally reaching consensus on four truly outstanding students to be recipients of the Richard Maloney and Robert Hastings Memorial Scholarships. Valerie Von and Olga Hernandez of Lynn English, Sara Melara of Lynn Vocational Technical Institute and Rebecca Smalley of Essex Technical High School were announced by Committee chairman Dr. Ray Bastarache as the “best of the best” at Thursday's luncheon meeting at the Porthole Restaurant.

 

Here are some photos from our April & May 8th grade student of the month program. Congratulations to all the students! We would also like to thank River Works Credit Union for being the sponsor of this great program and Rotarians Wendy Silva, Drew Russo & Ray Bastarache for all their hard work.
 

The Rotary Club of Lynn, MA would like to thank all those who attended our 100th Year Celebration Wednesday evening.

Donate Professional Attire to “Succeed in Style”

The Rotary Club of Lynn will be collecting professional attire for men and women, in support of the Lynn Shelter Association’s program called “Succeed in Style”.  This program provides clothing to Shelter clients who need professional attire as they apply for jobs or begin work.  The Club is going to support that program by collecting professional attire to donate to the Association at our meeting of June 22, 2017. 
 
Members and friends are urged to bring donated clothing to the June 22 meeting so that the clothing can be sorted by type and size.  Donated items should be clean, current fashion, and in good condition.   Please provide the clothing on hangers for ease of handling.  Professional clothing is accepted as well as close toed shoes in good condition.  Members are urged to pick up donations from friends and bring them to the meeting.

Lynn Rotary Awards Another Great Group of 8th Grade Students

Recently the Rotary Club of Lynn held its Eighth Grade Recognition Program at the Porthole Restaurant. The program has been a mainstay on the Lynn Club calendar for over a decade and is underwritten by Riverworks Credit Union.  The awards ceremony is held several times a year and presents awards to middle school students who have overcome something in their life, and who are doing well in school.  Students, teachers, and families are invited to a great luncheon where letters of recommendation from teachers are read aloud in honor of each student.  Each student is then given an award citation, a letter of commendation, a gift certificate, and a cash award toward a savings account.  These award ceremonies are very popular with students, families, teachers, and among Rotarians too.  The Lynn Rotary Club is greatly appreciative of Riverworks Credit Union in their support of the program.
