Rotary Club Scholarships Have Extra Special Meaning This Year!

Merrimack Valley Rotary Club proudly made scholarship donations this year to high school students in 7 towns in its region.

This continues the tradition that started with the Club almost 10 years ago.

Lawrence Day Memorial Scholarships
What makes this year different than past years is the fact that the donations are now called the Lawrence Day Memorial Scholarships named after the scholarship's founder. Larry, a long time member of the Club, sadly died in August 2007 and will be missed forever by Club member.

Lessons In How To Be A Rotarian
Larry, along with others, started the Scholarship program as a way of giving back to the community that gave him a scholarship when he was in high school. This way of giving is truly in the spirit of Rotary's worldwide.....service above self. Larry has taught us all a lesson in how to be a Rotarian.
