On Saturday May 7,2022 a bunch of Rotarians and friends of Rotary set out to paint the entire shelter at Rotary Park, inside and out.
This included Cody Steed and his son and Josh Piascik from Sherwin-Williams Company. They also brought all the paint and materials.
A BIG "THANK YOU" TO THEM.
 
This is what it looked like before we attacked it!
And, so it begins!
 
 
 
 
President Tony Campos, President Elect Nicole Didomenico & daughter, Past President Tom Babic & Joe Shadroui did the deed this year picking a ton of trash!

Barre's New Clothing Closet

By Guest Blogger, Mary L Collins, DCF, Family Services Division

Exterior picture of Clothing ClosetWalk past this historic building in downtown Barre and you might never know that inside lies a bounty of clothing, supplies and toys for children and youth that has been gathered over the past year by Recruitment & Retention Specialist, Alona Tate, for the Barre District Family Services Division of DCF. 

The Barre Barre Rotary Club joined GenRotary members as well as friends of Rotary in hosting The World Santa Coat Drive for another successful and fun project on Saturday, December 11th, 2021 at The Vermont Granite Museum.  Approximately 120 new winter coats for children were wrapped with hand knit matching hats & mittens, and a book or toy was placed in the boxes as well.   I hope those boxes don't fall down before they get delivered to the Salvation Army!

Pictured above are , Barre Rotary Club President Tony Campos, Vermont State Governor, Phil Scott and BARRE ART SPLASH Chair, Karl A. Rinker.
 
On Wednesday, December 8, 2021 Governor Scott picked three raffle tickets for his three model race cars that were built and decorated for the BARRE ART SPLASH project and displayed on Main Street all summer.
 
The race cars were models of the actual race cars that Scott raced at Thunder Road and other race tracks over the years. As far as I know Scott is the only US governor that has ever won a stock car race.
 
District 7859 Governor Mike Carrier is all smiles after receiving a gift of two Barre Gray Granite book ends from the Barre VT Rotary Club after his visit to the club on September 15.
Governor Mike had some very nice words to share with us about the district and Rotary world wide.
He is visiting all the clubs in the district.

The Barre Rotary Club organized a great Saturday Octoberfest at the Vermont Granite Museum in Barre.
 
Oktoberfest - Vermont Style!
The Barre Rotary Club provided for a taste of some of Vermont's best craft beers, authentic Bavarian food, and the Inseldudler, German Band of Vermont!
In a year that a lot of folks thought the Barre Rotary Club did not hold the annual breakfast on the Aldrich Public Library because of COVID there actually was one.  The only problem was, that only one person showed up!
Picture below is Jeff Dunn at the breakfast on the lawn all by himself.
Jeff is deceased club member, Ron Parnigoni's son in-law. As you might know Ron ran the breakfast for a long time after his big brother, Dick Parnigoni stopped doing it. Jeff always helped before, during and after the breakfast!
Ron got the donations rolling this last year with a large check with the idea that the club could get other donations to make up for the big loss to the library.  Well with Bop Pope's help the club raised $13,180.00 with out the breakfast!
See large check below.
From Left to right, Lauren Polk, Executive Director of the library, out-going president John Steinman, and board chair Nancy Pope. 
Total donations over the years to the library are now $309,549.00. The 2019 breakfast was the 36th breakfast on the library lawn and the 46 breakfast overall.
