  2. Lyman (with Nancy W. and Tim B.) were on hand for the erection of the flag pole in the Boscawen Rt. 4 rotary. The flag was funded in part by the Club.

TOPIC
Deb Galipeault
YMCA Youth in Government Program
Deb presented a nice overview of the Youth in Government program.  The Program is 73 years old and today involves 300 students around the state. It is focused on civic education; the process of government, leadership and responsibilities.  Participants will submit over 100 sample bills and visit Concord for 2 days (except this year) to see where it all happens.  Two students from the state attend a similar event in Washington DC.
Alumni include many local luminaries who are also strong supporters of the program.
 
 
Special recognition to the Club Member who didn’t mute himself and entertained us with periodic gastrointestinal pronouncements during the speaker’s time.
 
Extra special recognition for anyone who read this far into the notes.
President Tim accepts 20,000 masks from the Rotary Million Mask Challenge, made possible by a generous donation from the Rossi Family Foundation.  (Please note that Tim only doffed his mask while speaking!)
 
The masks, part of a 1,000,000 mask donation across New England, have been distributed to familiar local organizations with a need for more protective gear.
 
The story of this effort is one of service and leadership. It is a story about answering the call, working together, and saving lives. It is the story, in short, of Rotary.
 
Concord Rotary rolls out Flags Across Concord. If you're interested in a flag posted on your lawn, please click here to send us a message!
We have suspended our regular meetings on Tuesday, due to caution over COVID-19.  Until we can reconvene in person, we are holding regular weekly Club meetings on line, starting at noon on Tuesday's and running for 45 minutes.  If you'd like to join us please contact Lucy Morris for instructions on how to connect.  
 
This year's 4-Way Test Contest has also been cancelled.
 
We hope this suspension is short-lived, but that will depend of the status of the virus.  We wish everyone can cope with this unprecedented disruption to their lives and can stay healthy!
 
We will be accepting applications for the Arell Scholarships as we have in past years.  See information below.
 
Support your community and gain valuable exposure for your organization.  All proceeds benefit a wide range of organizations serving those in need and, otherwise, improving the fabric of civic and community life for all local citizens.  Depending on your Partnership Level you will be recognized at our major events and in our communication, including on our web site.  For more information on this program and a partial list of the beneficiaries of our support click here.
