It’s a new Rotary year, which means new leadership in our clubs, our districts, and our international board. On Monday, June 27 PDG Julia Phelps inducted our club’s first co-presidents, Donna Collins and Eric Palen. We also gave 4 people Paul Harris recognitions. Ann Ferguson, Amy Farrell, Ann Boudreau, and Tom Farrell were named Paul Harris Fellows because they exemplify our motto, Service Above Self.

This past week, Jane Ansaldo Church shared information about the Step Up Thrift Shop. They accept “lightly” used/worn clothing/shoes and books to name a few things (not furniture) and they are open certain hours but you can donate 24 hours/day at the shed they have that’s between the library and the church. They reinvest almost all the proceeds back into the City of Amesbury.
