Make a Difference on Your Lunch Break with Bristol Rotary
By lauRa BRusseau
Do you want to meet new peo- ple, learn more about the com- munity and give back? You can start Thursday during your lunch break or your children’s nap time!
Bristol Rotary Club is part of Rotary International and has the motto service above self. They pro- vide service to others, promote in- tegrity, and advance international understanding and goodwill!
The International Orga- nization was founded by Paul Harris in Chicago in 1905, and today thousands of clubs meet
weekly around the world with over 1 million members! The organization connects people, transforms communities, and
funds sustainable projects! They empower youth through service and international understand- ing with their Interact Clubs, Rotaract Clubs, and Student Exchange Programs. They also are involved with the State Wide Four Way Speech Contest, where local youth can win prizes based off of Rotary’s four-way test of: Is it the Truth? Is it Fair to all concerned? Will it build Good- will and Better Friendships, and Will it be Beneficial to ALL?
The Bristol Club is small but mighty with seventeen dedicated members. The members range from various ages, from recent graduates to the young at heart to the very seasoned.
They meet the first Thursday of the month from 12-1 PM at the Minot Sleeper Library lo- cated at 35 Pleasant Street in Bris- tol. The next two Thursdays, the club meets on Zoom, and the last Thursday of the month, the club meets at 6 PM at a local restau- rant (different each month to sup- port our local business owners) for
Piano Learning Fun
Lessons for ages 5 and up. Beginner to Intermediate • Revolutionary approach using “Music Moves for Piano”
• Music learning is like language learning -
listen, audiate, explore before reading. • Age appropriate for all learners
Also, check with your employer, as some companies will pay club fees and even encourage you to join civic organizations!
The club recently gave out over $10,000 in college scholar- ships to local teens, helped with a software update at the Library, and they are regular volunteers in the local 1st-grade classrooms reading books to the children! You can also spot them volun- teering at local events such as the NH Marathon and selling Christmas Trees in O’Reilly’s parking lot to raise funds to sup- port the community! The club encourages members to also sup- port Rotary International causes such as the Polio Foundation to eradicate Polio around the world!
The next big fundraiser for the club will be the annual Penny Sale on August 10th at New- found High School starting at 6:30 PM. This event is sure to sell
