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!
 
 
 
 
On October 22, 2922 club members washed the entire Summer Street mural, yes, all the way to the top of the derrick.
The club does this each year and then The Paletteers come in and touch up any blemishes. Thank you so much for all their hard work over the years.
Pictured above are Arthur Zorn and Bob Pope.
 
Four Paletteers spent a collective 11 hours working on the mural October 20, 2022.  They worked primarily along the bottom panels which were within reach.  Concentration was on the white and blue sections which had discolored. They also touched up the bottom portion of the Fiddlehead which had become clouded which brought some back some vibrancy.

Over the weekend the District 7850 Changeover Event took place at Rotary Park in Barre on a cold and windy day in summer! Huddled in the newly painted shelter, Rotarians convened for the annual District Changeover Event which included a non-business meeting, reports, guest presentations, accolades, giving of gifts, a Polio Plus raffle, and remarks by outgoing District Governor Mike Carrier and incoming District Governor, our own Caroline Earle.
ARE DICTIONARIES & ATLASES STILL RELEVANT IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN THIS DAY & AGE?
 
5376 books later, yes, say the administrators in six local schools! The Barre club recently distributed almost 400 books to the schools.
 
The club has now given 5376 books to the schools!
President Tony Campos, President Elect Nicole Didomenico & daughter, Past President Tom Babic & Joe Shadroui did the deed this year picking a ton of trash!
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.
