During the Holiday season this year the Rotary Club of Barre members were out in force to ring the bell for the Salvation Army.
 On one day they brought in more then $800.00 to help the citizens of our community.

The coats will be distributed by the Salvation Army in Barre.

On the night of June 27, 2023 the Barre Club gathered at Pearl Street Pizza to celebrate the changing of club presidents. 
We started off with the pledge and some singing led by Arthur Zorn on the piano.
   Then we went straight to the meal of cesar salad, meat balls with polenta and pizza followed by a great cake. Great fellowship was had by all!
Under the direction of club president, Nicole DiDomenico the club held a "PIE FOR BRUNCH" event on April 8, 2023 at the American Legion in Barre, Vt.
This well attended event was meant to distribute funds to local charities or non profits.
Rotarians & guests brought a verity of pies for brunch which were all delicious!
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.
This is what it looked like before we attacked it!
And, so it begins!
