Pictured from left to right are Past District Governors Sandy McGonagle, Alley Boucher, Pete Powers, Harry, Tony Gilmore and Chris Parkinson.

Harry Meinzer is Hopkinton Rotary’s newest Honorary member.  The honor was bestowed at the Club’s August 2, 2017 meeting in recognition of Harry’s exemplary service to the Club.  “Uncle Harry” was a Charter member of the Club and served in many leadership positions over the years, including that of President in 2000-2001.  Harry was also presented with a special presentation commemorating his years of service to the community, which included volunteering with Dial-a-Ride, the Slusser Center and VFW. Five past District Governors were in attendance, a measure of the high regard in which Harry is held by so many.

The Mount Kearsarge Hill Climb will be held on Saturday, August 26.  Registration and number pick up begins at 7:30 a.m. with the race starting promptly at 9:30 a.m.  Register here.  $60 per person includes a raffle ticket and lunch.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
When Dave Feller first heard Venu Rao of the Hollis Brookfield Club talk about his vision for clean water for the urban slums of Bangalore, India last year, Dave knew the members of Hopkinton Rotary would want to take part.  And he was right. Our $5,000 donation to the project, one of the first in District 7870, was instrumental to securing a District match, and then additional monies from the Rotary Foundation.  The $187,500 project is now well underway and will result in the construction of seven water health centers in Bangalore, bringing safe water to over 100,000 people living in the urban slums.

It took over a year to attain the 25 members required by Rotary International for a charter, but thanks to the enthusiasm and dedication of founder Russ Hilliard, The Rotary Club of Hopkinton, NH came into being on August 1, 1996. Helping Russ in this endeavor were Special Representatives PDG John Lyford of Bow Rotary and the late Phil La Rosa of Henniker Rotary. Early on, the club met at the former Horseshoe Tavern, but later moved to the Parish House of the First Congregational Church of Hopkinton. The club was able to hire Sandy Bartlett as our caterer and she has been serving the club delicious breakfasts ever since. Our membership grew steadily over the years and we currently average 40 Rotarians.
