Our guest speaker for Tuesday, January 13th will be State Representative Denise Garlick (13th District)


Come and listen to our newly reelected state representative as she briefs us on the work of the state house of representatives and the challenges of funding a state deficit of about $500 million.  She'll also be working with the new Republican Governor, Charlie Baker!  That's an experience Democrats don't get to have very often.

News for All Rotarians

To celebrate the milestone of India being polio free, 40,000 people in Chennai, India were mobilized by Rotary in December and were formed into the world's largest flag.   They set a Guinness world record by breaking the previous record of 30,000 people in Lahore, Pakistan!


District 3230 Rotarians first formed a blue wheel for the inside center of the flag.   They were joined by RI President Gary C.K. Huang and his wife.


Another 50,000 people came to watch, and the whole group practiced on the day before.  The participants had to hold their colored placards over their heads for five minutes before the event became official.


Congratulations to Needham Rotarian Ted Shaunghnessy and Gift of Life New England!

The Dedham Rotary Club recently gave $500 to GOLNE!  Since last summer, Dedham Rotarian Carmen Nazario, has been volunteering her Spanish language skills to aid in translations for four families who traveled from Latin America to Boston to receive life-saving heart surgeries.
