Claudine Hessmer-Husainy received her first Paul Harris Fellow at the April 23rd meeting. During the presentation, Past President Julie Whitcomb highlighted many of Claudine's contributions as a Rotarian including for her work in founding the first EarlyAct Club in our district and her active participation in many of our international endeavors. Claudine helped organize the Milford-Lahore Peace Express trip to Pakistan in 2012 and more recently spearheaded our club's participation in The World's Greatest Meal to Help End Polio. She also serves the Milford Rotary as our Assistant Treasurer. In addition to her volunteer work as a Rotarian, Claudine serves on the boards of Andy's Summer Playhouse and the Amherst PTA. To Claudine's surprise, her beloved hubby Mozammel dropped in from work in Rhode Island to participate in the PHF pinning. Bravo on a well deserved honor!

On Wed May 7th the club's weekly lunch meeting once again will be  transformed into a huge Chicken BBQ where the honored guests are our area senior citizens!

Image

For 36 years Rotarians have been inviting seniors living in the local area to join us for a free, no reservations needed barbecue. Click here for more history about this community service event. Rotarians, assisted by Lesli Rendall's Souhegan High students and other student groups, do all of the cooking, serving and clean-up. Rotarians are asked to pay $20 for their lunch that day with the "extra" dollars helping to offset the cost of this community service event. Bring your appetite and gift of gab! The famous Rotary Chicken is delish and our guests love to chat.

ADG and Milford Rotarian Doug Rupert and his lovely wife MaryAnn are on a tour of Australia. Along the way they took in a Rotary meeting at the Rotary Club of Melbourne. As Doug noted in a recent email this is the oldest Rotary Club in Australia. They meet in the Grand Ballroom of the majestic Windsor Hotel that is right next door to Parliament Maybe the location explains the $42  per person for lunch. Hope Doug will share some insights about their Footy Tipping fundraiser!

Pictured below are Doug, all spiffed out with his "Light Up Rotary" tie, Mary Ann Rupert. and Rotary Club of Melbourne President Keith McNeil. Click here to visit the RC of Melbourne website.
