The Newburyport Rotary Club annual Santa Parade was held on Sunday, November 26, 2017.  Santa and Mrs. Claus arrived via Coast Guard cutter and were escorted around downtown by the Rotary elves and helpers ending at Market Square to light the Newburyport Chamber's Christmas tree.  
On Tuesday, December 12, the Newburyport Rotary held their annual holiday charity luncheon at Andiamo Restuarant.  The Newburyport Rotary donated to the following charities:  Boys & Girls Club of Lower Merrimack Valley, Newburyport Community Service, Firehouse Center for the Arts, Opportunity Works, Pettengill House, Link House and the Salvation Army.

District  Governor, Dave Gardner, made a joint visit to Newburyport and Amesbury Rotary Clubs on Thursday, September 28. Dave's lovely wife, Joan, accompanied him.
 
We were also privileged to have Bob Wood, District Governor Elect, and Joan Arsenault, District Governor Nominee, attend. Shown in the picture are Joan Arsenault, Dianne Webster (Amesbury President), Marion Spark, Dave Gardner and Bob Wood (left to right).
Lunch was held at Vasa Restaurant, Bridge Road, Salisbury.
 
Dave showed slide shows of each club's activities and fundraisers which were fun to watch. Many members had Happy Dollars and they were given to Dave to donate to the Rotary Foundation. He also addressed Rotary's challenge of retaining and gaining members. He challenged each of us to invite three people to a meeting within the next quarter.
Do you remember last winter? How could we forget it? We were buried in snow time after time after time. And did we still receive our mail on a regular basis? You bet we did! In order to thank Newburyport postal workers for their dedication and work ethic, The Rotary Club of Newburyport provided breakfast for more than 40 letter carriers and post office workers at the Post Office Annex in the industrial park. Port City Sandwich catered the event with a fabulous hot breakfast. Paul Bolas, USPS Postmaster of the Newburyport Post Office, reported that his crew were excited for the breakfast and grateful to be appreciated for their work. Serving the breakfast were club President Deborah Andrews and club members Ann Ormond, Cindy Johnson, Louis Rubenfeld, Geri Dorr, Peter Doyle, Tom Howard, and Nikki Misenheimer. The mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. Motto: Doing Good in the World. For more information about the Rotary Club of Newburyport, please call Deborah Andrews at 978-270-2623. 
On July 28th we were visited by Jen LaCroix, chair for Yankee Homecoming 2015, Mayor Holaday and members of the Coast Guard!
