Sturbridge Rotary Club donates $5,000 to Council on Aging

Seniors buy “badly needed” air conditioner

📷 Former Sturbridge Rotary Club President Bob White recently presented a $5,000 check to the Sturbridge Council on Aging as a donation for the seniors.

STURBRIDGE — A check for $5,000 was recently presented by the Sturbridge Rotary Club to the Sturbridge Council on Aging.  Accepting the check is Heather Weston, Director of the Senior Center, to which it’s most commonly referred.  Included in the photo is one of the many exercise classes held on the second floor of the Center.

“We are very grateful for the generous support of Sturbridge Rotary,” said Heather. “The funds have been used toward the purchase of a badly needed air conditioner for the second floor. The new air conditioner by United PLumbing Heating Air & Electric has been wonderful for those attending meetings or movies and, as you can see in the photo, for those in the exercise classes.”

Bob White, Sturbridge Rotary Club Past-President, added: “Helping our local community is one of the projects we enjoy doing.  This project, using funds from our Educational Trust account, satisfies a need for the Senior Center that we are happy to fulfill.”

The Sturbridge Rotary Club has been providing humanitarian service to the local and international community for over 45 years.  Club members develop community service projects that address many of today’s most critical issues including hunger, as well as support programs for youth, seniors and educational opportunities and international exchanges for students and other professionals.  The Rotary motto is “Service Above Self.”
