Northborough Rotary Club holds “Meet and Greet”

Northborough – The Rotary Club of Northborough is holding a “Meet and Greet” gathering Tuesday, Jan. 31, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at Bistro Limoncello's 290 West Main St. Northborough.

Ken Golden, president of the Northborough Rotary Club, explained, “This is a great opportunity for the leaders, professionals and business owners to get together and learn more about Rotary Clubs.”

Founded on Nov. 1, 1971, by 23 businessmen, the Rotary Club of Northborough has continuously served the community of Northborough through its scholarship program, youth leadership weekend, and support for the town's food bank and fuel assistance programs. The club has raised funds for school defibrillators, provided car seats for needy families, and built the Cold Harbor Brook Trail. The club has also joined in support of educational assistance to Haiti, in medical assistance to Guyana, and has raised funds for the Polio*Plus program of Rotary International.

Rotary was founded in 1905 in Chicago by Paul Harris. As the luncheon meetings were rotated among the offices of the founding members, the name Rotary Club came to be. Rotary's motto, then and now, is to provide “Service above Self.” Not only do Rotarians serve their communities, they serve the world at large in the areas of illiteracy, world hunger, disease, children at risk and environmental degradation. Today, Rotary has over 1.2 million members and over 32,000 clubs in over 200 countries.

The Rotary Club of Northborough meets each Tuesday at noon at the Celtic Tavern, Route 9 West, Northborough.
