The Sturbridge Rotary Club will be hosting five people from Brazil, June 1 – 4. Known as a Rotary Group Study Exchange team, they will be shown Sturbridge and get to learn more about our community. They will also experience how we do things in the area, as each team member is matched with a local person having a similar vocation. Part of their time in Sturbridge will be spent visiting Old Sturbridge Village.
Planning for the annual change of Rotary leadership in all clubs is well under way. At the end of June, current President Jennifer Harwich Vaughan will complete her second time as president of the club and hand the gavel of the Sturbridge Rotary Club to Larry Mandell.
President Jenn has had an excellent year, as the club raised money for high school scholarships, sent sophomores for three days of leadership training, gave Thanksgiving baskets to needy families, and supported several other charitable causes.
Besides that, the club had many social and fun events.
