As we start 2024, we are celebrating our Club’s 100th anniversary throughout the year. Thank you to everyone that participates in the planning and preparations of various activities to celebrate the impact that our Club has had over its history. Not every club achieves this distinction of one hundred years. John Newton has provided the first Club’s meeting record. I have attached the copy of minutes for your review.
 
Rotary has continued to be about “Service Above Self” and our membership past and present can take immense pride on the impact that we have had in our community. As we look at the weeks and months ahead, we are participating in the district’s speech contest, we have established a “Service Above Self” scholarship, and we are starting our goal to reach one hundred Random Acts of Kindness. We are preparing for the 30th Rotary Home and Recreation Expo where all of you will be needed to make it a true success. We want to have a stronger presence of Rotary at this event. We are starting to plan for our participation in the Maple Festival parade in April.
 
I am extremely excited about the year, and I look forward to our time together. It is my hope that you expect remarkable things for our club and from ourselves. Membership Matters, Get Involved, Be Impactful and Have Fun will continue to be the focus of our efforts. Let us have fun as we set out with an ambitious year and continue to be “People of Action.” Please keep up the splendid work you are doing for our Club and Community.
 
If you have a passion for community, service, creating friendships, we invite you to learn more about our Rotary Club.  Please contact us by sending us a note to: Rotary Club of St. Albans, P.O. Box 1134, St. Albans, VT 05478, or visit our "Become a Member" page.

Chartered on October 8, 1924, the Rotary Club of St. Albans, Vermont is proud to be located in a very picturesque and rural part of the US.   Our Club has been a dominate force in the area meeting challenges with enthusiasm, creativity, fun and energy.   Our Rotary roots run deep with Paul Harris forging his connection with Vermont at age of three.  He grew up in the care of his paternal grandparents in Wallingford, VT.  He attended the University of Vermont before further pursuing his education at Princeton and the University of Iowa.

The Rotary Club of St. Albans held it first Speech Contest, open to area high school students on February 7th.  This was the first round of the annual Rotary District Speech Contest.  We had three participants in our contest that included Aydin Naylor and Kyrell Anderson from BFA Fairfax and Rachel Ledoux from BFA St. Albans. 
 
The Speech Contest Topic was "How can we increase hope for our schools?” Students were asked to prepare and deliver a five-minute speech which relates this topic to their life, school, and Rotary values.

Our Club welcomed DG Susan Cherry to our meeting on February 6, 2024. The District Governor has been visiting all the member clubs. She noted that our Rotary District is one of the few international Rotary Districts.  We comprise twenty-five clubs in Vermont, eleven in New Hampshire and four in Quebec and two that span the US and Canada Border. Every Club is unique as to when meetings are held, how they fund raise and activities they sponsor. She encouraged as many members as possible to attend the district conference in April to meet and have conversations with other Rotarians.
 
 
Your donations help us to fulfill our mission to support a wide variety of community initiatives. No amount is too small! Thank you!
