Successful Fundraiser Allows Rotary to Expand Much Needed Programs for 2018

By Joe Nunziata


Following a successful Fundraiser in October, The Rotary Club of the Pelhams has expanded its reach of helping those in need, and providing life saving programs “around the corner, and around the world”. Particularly to children. In 2018, the Rotary will continue its legacy of volunteerism with innovative programs, projects and events as seen in the box.


According to Rotary President Lyn Roth-Jacobs, “We are so very appreciative for the loyal support from our entire Pelham community.” Betty Bucher, Chair of the Rotary’s 2018 Fundraiser, Tastings XIV added “We are already planning our next annual fundraiser, so save the date: Sunday, October 14 from 4 to 7pm at the Pelham Country Club!”


President Roth-Jacobs wishes to acknowledge the Junior League of Pelham for hosting their first annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day Pelham Service Fair, and for providing the Rotary and other charitable volunteer organizations with opportunities to participate with presentation tables. Members of the Rotary greeted and met many potential volunteers, as the Club’s work was presented and discussed.
