Rotaries Honored At Heroes Evening
Merrimack Valley Rotary (shown in the photo) and seven other local rotaries were honored by Community Teamwork Inc at their 15 Annual Evening with Local Heroes. Rotary was cited as being an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide and whose main mission is to provide service in the community, the workplace and throughout the world. The organization went on to say that rotarians develop community service projects that address many of today's most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, literacy and violence. Rotarians also support programs for youth, education opportunities and international exchange for students, teachers, and other professionals, and vocational and career development.
