Congratulations Josephine!
At our June evening Rotary meeting, outgoing President Bridget Murray recapped some of the year's accomplishments while members enjoyed an Italian dinner at the Ravenswood Nature Center. After a short walk and historical presentation by Ramona Latham, the Engagement Manager for Cape Ann properties of The Trustees and an expert environmental educator, Bridget walked the club through the past 12 months, scholarship awards, sponsorship of cultural, educational, and civic organizations, while building friendships and networking with the community. VP Josephine McCullough, incoming president, presented Bridget with the coveted "Past President" pin and plaque, as well as a memento of the club's appreciation of her hard work. Bridget showed her appreciation of club members with gifts of flower baskets. After a short hiatus, namely the Red, White, and Blue Pancake Breakfast, the Manchester-Essex Rotary Club will resume meeting July 6 at the American Legion Hall.

The 27th annual Fourth of July Pancake Breakfast will be held Saturday, July 2 at Tuck's Point.

Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door. Kids under 6 are free.
Meet your friends and neighbors, enjoy the view, and kick-off your July 4th weekend.
Diane Lindquist was inducted into the Manchester-Essex Rotary Club at their breakfast meeting, March 30. President Bridget Murray welcomed Diane in a brief ceremony describing Rotary's commitment to "service above self" and reciting Rotary's four-way test: Is it the TRUTH?  Is it FAIR to all concerned? Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? The members then welcomed Diane to the club.
Stephanie Clark of Amirah and Christina Bain of Babson College
Manchester-Essex Rotary Club hosted the MERHS Global Issues classes at its February 10 breakfast meeting.  Manchester resident Christina Bain, of Babson College, gave an informative talk on the topic of Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery. Ms Bain discussed the history of national and international legislation designed to stop the exploitation of adults and children worldwide, and as close to home as Peabody, MA.  Guests included faculty members Donna McKay and James Walliman, and Stephanie Clark, Executive Director of Amirah Boston.  Amirah is a non-profit organization located in the Boston area, offering a refuge and transformative whole-person care for survivors of commercial exploitation.
Josephine recently attended the Presidents' elect meeting. Next year's theme is "Rotary Serving Humanity."
