Twenty-seven founding members of the new Interact Club of Maynard High School were inducted during a ceremony on January 28, 2019 at the public school. John Erb, who sponsored the Interact club as a member of the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley, asked the members to "promise to do goodwill within your community and your country. In addition to service, you will have the benefits of strong bonds of friendship with fellow Interactors, locally and worldwide, as well as the chance to develop strong leadership and professional skills." John also led them in stating Rotary's Four Way Test. View the photo album, and learn more about this new club and its new officers: http://ht.ly/bnlW30nFVp6

At the Repair Café, everything centers on making repairs. Knowledgeable "fixer" volunteers help repair items such as clean mendable clothing, lamps, small appliances, computers and other electronics, bikes, and toys. They can also sharpen knives, scissors, and garden tools. We cannot work on outdoor power equipment in the winter. You pay only for needed parts. If you know which parts are needed, please get them ahead of time and bring them to the Repair Café, to save time.
Join us each month as we gather on the fourth Tuesday of the month from 6-8 PM at Slater's, Route 117 in Bolton, MA. These gatherings are social opportunities that also provide community service! Past months have featured donations for Bolton Thanksgiving baskets. the Stow Food Pantry, and the AIDS Project Worcester. February's event will collect donations of socks for Warm Hearts of Stow as well as continued toiletry donations for the AIDS Project Worcester. Check the calendar listing for more information.
 
 
Thanks to everyone who supported our bird seed wreath fundraiser this past holiday season! The hearty, handmade wreaths were the perfect gift for bird lovers and our wooded communities! If you are still interested in buying one before the winter snow hits, please send email to info@nashobarotary.org. At $20, it's a quality product. Even better, 100% of all sales will be donated to charitable causes!
 
Members of the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley taught bicycle and scooter safety skills for the Nashoba Regional School District's extended day class. The young students learned maneuverability techniques, hand signals, and safe riding distances... and burned off some energy before the start of school!
