Exeter Rotarians help to feed the hungry
EXETER — The Exeter Rotary Club is proud to report that through the generosity of the Exeter and Stratham communities it collected 7,324.31 pounds of food for the food pantry at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Community Assistance Center during its third annual “Stuff the Bus” Food Drive which was held last month.
The Southern District YMCA Camp Lincoln and First Student Bus Company of Salem, donated two mini-buses and a full-size school bus that were placed in front of three area grocery stores for the day.
Customers of Market Basket and Shaw’s of Stratham and Hannaford of Exeter filled the buses with items specifically requested by the pantry. Each store put its own spin on the event from Dean Clevesy, Market Basket store manager, who kept his customers in the spirit by making fun and encouraging announcements on the store’s loudspeaker throughout the day; to Donna Smith of Hannaford placing colorful balloons throughout the store pointing out bags of donations; to the team at Shaw’s donating unsold bags of groceries from the event to the pantry.
This year’s event had a “green” side as well. Because the pantry will be transitioning away from paper and plastic bags on June 1, all store-packed donations were placed in reusable cloth bags which were also donated to the pantry after the event.
Over 50 volunteers including Rotary Club members and their families, Vincentians, Exeter High School Rotary Interact Club members, community members and the Youth Group from St. Michael’s Parish kept the St. Vincent de Paul van on the move all day, going from store to store shuttling donated items back to the Center.
“This is what being a Rotarian is all about. Exeter Rotarians that had yet to take part in this event made sure to volunteer this year,” said Leigh Willett, 2014-2015 Exeter Rotary president. “The generosity of our community is so uplifting.”
The Exeter Rotary Club has been a non-profit member of our Exeter Area Community since 1959. Rotary is one of the largest international humanitarian service organizations in the world, with more than 1.2 million Rotary members worldwide.
The Exeter Rotary Club conducts many community projects and supports local non-profits whose work benefits those that live and work in Exeter area.

Community invited to 'Stuff the Bus'
EXETER — The Exeter Rotary Club is ready for its third encore of the successful “Stuff the Bus” Food Drive to benefit the food pantry at The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Community Assistance Center on Saturday, April 11 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
The Southern District YMCA Camp Lincoln and First Student Bus Company of Salem have donated two mini-buses and a full-size school bus that will be placed in front of three area grocery stores for the day.
Customers of Market Basket and Shaw’s of Stratham and Hannaford of Exeter are asked to help fill the buses with canned tuna, peanut butter, orange juice, granola bars, pasta sauce, laundry detergent and personal care items. The three stores have also put together pre-packed bags of donations requested by the pantry to make donating extra easy for their customers. This year’s event will also have a “green” side. Because the pantry will be transitioning away from paper and plastic bags on June 1, all store packed donations will be placed in reusable cloth bags which will also be donated to the pantry after the event.
“Believe it or not, we are already thinking about summer.” said Molly Zirillo, Society of St. Vincent de Paul Executive Director. “Children that normally depend on school breakfasts and lunches will be at home for the summer months and our clients will need to come to the pantry more often to meet their family’s increased needs.”
Volunteers including Rotary Club members and their families, Vincentians, Rotary Interact Club members from both Exeter High School and Phillips Exeter Academy and the Youth Group from St. Michael’s Parish will keep the St. Vincent de Paul van on the move all day as it drives from store to store shuttling donated items back to the Center.
“Our last two events combined raised the equivalent of over $25,000 in food donations. The community response was inspiring and we’re hoping to recreate that same success. Our neighbors are in need and the Rotary Club is so excited to have another opportunity to help,” said Rachael MacDonnell, Rotary “Stuff the Bus” Coordinator.
“We are extremely happy to be partnering with Hannaford, Market Basket and Shaw’s,” added 2014-2015 Exeter Rotary President, Leigh Willett, “The management and staff from these stores bring so much energy and excitement to the day. They really get into the cause!” The generosity of the local grocery stores extends past just this single event when it comes to working with St. Vincent de Paul. Market Basket is helpful on price when the pantry needs to supplement its donations with more supplies. Hannaford donates meats, pastries, breads and fresh produce Monday through Friday, every week. Since 2007 Shaw’s has helped store the dozens of turkeys the pantry receives for the holidays for its clients.
For more information about The Exeter Rotary “Stuff the Bus” Food Drive, or to learn how you can get involved, contact Rachael MacDonnell, “Stuff the Bus” Coordinator at 603-828-8936 or rmacdonnell@optimabank.com.

Rotarians "Light Up" Exeter on New Year's Eve

Image
The twenty-some-odd year tradition of setting out luminaries for the community of Exeter to enjoy on Christmas Eve was washed out this December but the Exeter Rotarians were not going to let a year go by without lighting up the town. The 2014 event was moved to New Year's Eve, which was a brisk but clear winter night.

Rotarians "Light Up" Exeter on New Year's Eve Rachael MacDonnell 2014-12-31 00:00:00Z
Exeter Rotary Club Luminary Tradition Date Change

EXETER- For over 20 years the Exeter community has had a special glow on Christmas Eve when dozens of volunteers led by the Exeter Rotary Club take to the streets with hundreds of luminaries. Due to the weather this year the tradition will continue but will be shifted to New Year’s Eve but the community can count on the Rotarians and several collaborating neighborhood groups to be out with over 2,000 luminary bags.

The tradition began with a family on Front Street that worked with their neighbors to decorate the neighborhood on Christmas Eve. When the family moved out of town over 20 years ago Dottie Milbury led the rest of the Exeter Rotarians in taking over the project that brings so much joy to the streets of Exeter. The Rotary Club covers Gill St, Gale Park, Front St, Water St., Lincoln St. and the steps of old Town Hall and the Congregational Church and typically lights 1,500 luminary bags. Neighborhood groups on Pine and High streets also join in the fun adding over 800 luminaries to the event.

“This year’s Rotary theme is ‘Light Up Rotary’ and in Exeter it could not be more true. As Rotarians we light up our community by giving back and the luminary project is just one very literal example of that,” says 2014-2015 Exeter Rotary President Leigh Willett. The Rotarians not only put the luminaries out Christmas Eve but there is also a crew that typically comes through to cleanup on Christmas morning. The same will be true this year, just a week later; weather permitting.

At 3:00 p.m. on the afternoon of New Year’s Eve 25+ volunteers will begin putting out the luminaries; which have already been folded, filled with sand and a candle by other Rotarians and volunteers. Once lit, the candles typically burn to about midnight, which will provide the perfect welcome to 2015.

When asked why she’s been leading this project for over 20 years Milbury smiles and says; “It’s such a nice feeling to give this gift to the town. The thanks we get is priceless.”

The fundraiser is an apple sale that has been a staple of Exeter Rotary’s commitment to the community for decades. In the 20+ years the sale has taken place over $60,000 in scholarships have been awarded to students of Exeter High School, the Seacoast School of Technology and Exeter Adult Education. Over the years, the dollar amount of the scholarships has increased in consideration of the rising costs of education.

This year’s bill of fare will include fresh picked bagged apples, crisp apple cider by the bottle or cup, freshly baked apple crisp, apple strudel and an all-time seasonal favorite, cider donuts. All proceeds from the sales go directly to fund the scholarships. “We’re hoping for a beautiful fall day,” says President Leigh Willett. “Keeping with our 2014-2015 Rotary Year Theme of Light Up Rotary, this is another way we as Exeter Rotarians let our light shine in our local community by helping students of all ages further their education. We are excited to continue our partnership with local businesses; all apple products and cider donuts are brought to us by our local grower, Applecrest Orchards of Hampton Falls and other baked goods are being baked fresh by St Anthony’s Bakery of Exeter.”

Our Local Connection to Guatemala
StoryThumbnail

Image

Mary Morales is a 23 year old teacher from Guatemala here on exchange from the Salud Y Paz school, spending the summer in various host homes on the Seacoast and working as a camp counselor at the Southern District YMCA's Camp Lincoln. Exeter Rotarian and YMCA Executive Director, Rob McGregor arranged for Mary, Jeff Gleason of Camp Lincoln, Judy George a host from Stratham and Patti Marsden of Eliot Congregational Church, to come and speak about their experience this summer.

Mary lives with her husband, mother and siblings in Guatemala and teaches 1st grade. Her father has been living away from the family for the last ten years so that he can work at a better paying job in order to support the family and his children's educations. Her mother makes very intricate traditional Guatemalan clothing (Mary was wearing an example) which takes her a month at a time to complete and is paid about $40 for each completed garment. Mary spoke about the importance of the work that Salud Y Paz does in making education, health and dental care more accessible to the community. She is thankful for our support in those efforts and for Phil's participation in a recent trip down to the facility. Coming to work at Camp Lincoln for the summer has been a tremendous opportunity for Mary. She works with 7 and 8 year old campers and has been able to gather new teaching ideas, improve her English and build her savings towards she and her husband's goal of building their own home next year.

Judy, Patti and Jeff spoke about Mary's positivity, smile and willingness to dive right into her surroundings. It is very clear that everyone involved in this experience has been changed for the better. Thank you all for sharing your experience!

John Nyhan presents on the power of Rotarian ideals
StoryThumbnail

Image

Passion, dedication, tenacity, teamwork, collaboration and ROI (Return on Investment). John Nyhan, member and Past President of the Hampton Club spoke to our members on 7/14 and asked the group to focus on those five words and phrase as he told the story of the Hampton Beach Revitalization project. The project is a stunning example of what can be accomplished when a group of people truly believe in "Service Above Self" and make a commitment to their community and a project that will improve that community. The project was completed after winning $14.5 million in state funding, even after an initial denial- this is where tenacity, teamwork and ROI came into play in a big way. By convincing legislators from around the state that an investment in Hampton Beach would translate into a return for the overall wellbeing of the citizen's of New Hampshire, John and his team won support for the project. After seeing the investment made on behalf of the government, local businesses have been inspired to contribute to the improvements as well. In 2 1/2 years, over $100 million has been invested by the business community.

John's success in making major contributions to his community stems from many things, including a once in a lifetime encounter with Mother Teresa when she asked him how he could give back to his community.

As Rotarians we consistently make a difference in our community- how can we do more? John suggests to not only to get more engaged and involved in our own clubs but to also wear our pins. Drum up curiosity, start those conversations, find more Rotarians and get the word out about our good work. We can Inspire Others & Light Up Rotary! Thanks for a wonderful presentation John!

Exeter Rotary Club Celebrates new Board

EXETER — The Exeter Rotary Club recently welcomed Leigh W. Willett as the new club president for the 2014- 2015 Rotary year.

Willett has served on the board of directors for the Exeter Rotary Club since she joined in 2005. Willett has been employed by Unitil Service Corp for 25 years and is the manager of operations services for Maine and New Hampshire electric and gas operations.

She graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a bachelor's degree in child/family services and an associate's degree in retailing. She is a N.H. justice of the peace and enjoys officiating wedding ceremonies.

Willett lives in Newfields with her husband Scott. Her daughter, Angela and son-in-law, J.D. live in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Willett enjoys travelling, skiing, gardening, walking and sitting on the beach.

The board of directors for the new year were installed at President Willett's first meeting. Officers and directors include; Rachael MacDonnell, president-elect; Ken Bailey, treasurer; Darlene McAllister, secretary; Burt Dibble, immediate past president; Phil Chura, club service chair; Dorothy Milbury, vocational chair; Bob Mitchell, community service chair; Rob McGregor, international service chair; Joe Pearce, new generations chair; James Rolston, foundation chair; Fred Emanuel, membership chair; Robert Fellows, club protection officer and David Yanofsky, fund-raising chair.

The new president of Rotary International, Gary C.K. Huang chose the theme "Light Up Rotary" for the new year. He is asking all Rotary clubs in the coming year to "Share our service, strengthen our clubs and let our light shine in our community." Willett sees this theme as another year for Exeter Rotarians to do their good work in the community and to let their light shine locally.

"There are so many things to be done in this world, it is so fulfilling to be part of such a great organization such as Rotary. Exeter Rotary is a great group of compassionate people working together to help strengthen our community. I am honored to serve as president for the year with this group of people I consider friends," Willett said.

The first meeting of the year was held at the Exeter Inn, where the club is returning to after several years away.

"We are excited to be back at the Exeter Inn. The Rotary Club and the Inn are such institutions in the Exeter community, its a natural partnership that I think will be successful one," Willett said.

Meetings are held on Mondays from 12:15-1:30 p.m. at the Exeter Inn and are open to the public. If you are interested in attending, please contact Exeter Rotary Club president, Leigh Willett at waletts@gmail.com. Space is limited.
