The Rotary Club of Mystic was chartered in 1954. The club is part of an international association of Rotary Clubs. An honorary member of Rotary International is Bill Gates. Mr. Gates was sufficiently impressed with the Rotary International project to end polio throughout the world,He donated one hundred million dollars towards this charity. During 2012 Mr. Gates will donate 250 million dollars as long as Rotary International collects 200 million. We are getting close to this mark.
The RotaryClub of Mystic conducts three major fundraisers each year - Lobster Days at the Mystic Seaport during Memorial Day weekend and sells Del's Lemonade at both the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival and the Taste of Mystic.
All profits are returned to the Mystic/Stonington communities and to Rotary International projects, such as donate a water pump or improve the quality of water in different countries around the world.
Another contribution of the Rotary Club of Mystic is community service, such as cleaning a road, assisting the Mystic Noank Library, when needed, collect funds for the Turkey drive for Thanksgiving and collect funds for the Salvation Army at the beginning of December, ect.
The Rotary Club of Mystic is open to both women and men and hold weekly meetings at the Mystic Hilton each Monday at noon. For more information about membership contact Laureen Morley, Membership Chair, at 860-536-4140. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit http://www.mysticrotary.org/ .
