Here is some press from the Foxboro Reporter:
Steve recently won a 4-contestant race to procure a seat on the Foxboro School Committee. Well done!
RYLA Weekend is almost here! We have five students selected for this special event.
An important part of this weekend involves helping package 100,000 meals on Sunday April 21 for food pantries across Southeastern MA, Cape Cod and the Islands, and Rhode Island. Logistics are all handled by the National Guard - they bring the component materials in bulk. After packaging, the National Guard will deliver the funded and packaged meals to the local food pantry(s) of each club's choice. In addition, our club donated money towards this very worthy effort.
The Foxboro Rotary Club is looking for local young people who are interested in living with a matched host family in their selected country from three to six weeks in the summer under the sponsorship of a local Rotary Club. Rotary's Short-Term Exchange Program presents opportunities for students to advance their knowledge and world understanding by allowing them to visit a different country for a limited period of time.
To qualify, a student must be between the ages of 15 and 18 this summer, be of good character and emotionally stable, and be in good physical condition. Most importantly, he or she must be able and willing to be a good ambassador.
The Rotary was recognized on the front page of the most recent Kennedy Donovan Center newsletter for our donation to the Center (see link on right). The mission of the Center is to bring services of the highest quality to people in need. For nearly forty years, the Kennedy Donovan Center has improved the quality of life for thousands of individuals with developmental disabilities and similar needs, including children, families and adults.
