Hello Friends,

I thought that since the many area Rotary Clubs in the Upper Valley serve many of us in various ways you’d want to know that our neighboring Rotary Club of Hanover is holding its annual Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, April 6, from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at the Fire Station on Lyme Road (Route 10) just north of Hanover.

Enjoy pancakes, sausage, maple syrup, juice, coffee, friendship. Cost is $5.00 for adults, $3 for children 5 - 16, and under are free. Parking is across the street and is also free… AND the Fire Department will have equipment on display. Funds go to supporting the Club’s many community projects.

Rotary is both an international and local organization which has helped rid the world of polio and which continues to work on clean water projects, scholarships, and supporting many and various local community projects.  Locally, one Hanover High School student receives a $10,000 scholarship and many local non-profits have benefitted from grants provided by the Hanover Rotary Club. .

Hope to see you at the Breakfast.

For Rotary,
