A Week of Rotary

Rotary Club members from across two districts will join together to cover a week’s worth of meal shifts at the NECHV in honor of Memorial Day. Districts 7910 and 7930 have committed to covering 12 meals between May 21 and May 27, 2018, and are currently seeking clubs or club members from those districts to sign up for shifts. Each shift requires a team of 12 people: ten to serve meals and provide wait-staff support in the dining hall, and two people to socialize with Veterans by playing games or having conversations.

Clubs or individuals can reserve shifts by coordinating with the District Governor of 7910, Karin Gaffney (, or the District Governor of 7930, David Gardner ( Shifts will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, so refer to the list of shifts below and sign up for your spot quickly!
