Rotary District 7930 will hold its 6th annual Polar Plunge on Saturday, February 4th, at Long Beach in Gloucester. The event is part of Rotary International’s ongoing campaign to eradicate polio in our lifetime.
 
Registration is now available. Please remember that friends, families, and Interactors are welcome to join us! "Virtual plunging" is always an option as well for those who want to support fundraising efforts, but not go into the water. Each dollar will be again matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation!

Andover Rotarians visit West Elementary School classrooms once a month to read to and talk with students. In December 2016, the Club donated $500 to purchase books for the school library. West Elementary School Principal Liz Roos shows off the Club's Happy Bucks bucket.

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?
 
 
The Andover Cares Fund, part of the Rotary Club of Andover Charitable Foundation, is seeking grant applications.  Andover Cares and the Andover Cares Fund were established in fall 2015, inspired by several members of the Rotary Club of Andover who lives have been touched by the heroin epidemic plaguing our community, our state, and our nation.
