Back From Kenya...MV Rotarian Tells His Story

Late last year, Merrimack Valley Rotarian Carl Good went to Kenya on a trip with 70 Rotarians and non Rotarians to help people in that country impacted by AIDS and other illnesses. It was the largest such excursion in Rotary history. Carl recently made his presentation to the Club about this very special trip. If you want to learn more about Carl's trip (and his earlier trip to Bangladesh) simply type his name in the search widget at the top left of this page.

Rotary Announces This Year's Woodchuck Award Winner!

Dan LeBlanc won this year's Bob McDonald Woodchuck Award.

The Merrimack Valley Rotary honers one of its members with this award each year. The award goes to the member who had the tallest tale to tell during the year. The award is given out at the meeting closest to Ground Hog Day.

Dan won the award this year because of his stories of going into the woods every morning looking for a deer. But never coming back with any evidence to prove it! Congratulations to Dan! Shown is Dan (left) and Bob! Ask Bob how the award got started...he has a tale to tell.
