The Rotary Club of Andover’s Andover Cares Festival returns for a second year Saturday, September 17, 2016, 3:00pm to 9:00pm, at the Doherty Fields and Cormier Youth Center, Whittier Court, Andover.  Entertainment includes local musical talent Rust Never Sleeps (Neil Young cover band), Carissa Johnson, young musicians from the Real School of Music, and a variety of other acts.  The Festival will also feature talks and discussion forums by experts in the opiate addiction field. Plus there will be lots of entertainment for the kids and plenty of food and beverages to make the festival a day for the entire family. One way Andover Cares raises funds is through donations of $20 toward an Andover Cares button. Kids under the age of 18 can contribute $10 for a button. By purchasing a button and wearing it throughout the year, supporters will spread the word about Andover Cares. Buttons can be purchased in advance at AndoverCaresFestival.EventBrite.com.

The Andover Rotary's 2015 Andover Cares movement introduced the potential of Rotary to new people who want to make a difference in their community.  For many, the traditional service club model of required weekly meetings and just doesn't fit into the busy lives we all live today.
 
So Andover Rotary created a new flexible Service Membership with fewer meeting requirements, lower membership fees, and a newly added evening meeting option. Want to learn more about how you can make a difference through Rotary?
