Rotarians welcomed new members, Peggy and Bill Williams to the club on 12/23/15. Peggy and Bill have been  regularly attending our meetings over the last few months and are now officially part of the club as our newest members. Vice President, Barbara Blinn pins incoming members at Induction Ceremony.
 
The Tilton - Northfield Rotary Club belongs to district 7870 and supports the Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do. In being a member of the club, it is noted that the Four-Way Test has been called the shortest effective code of standards of correct practice so far devised. It is now being used by numerous trade associaiotns, service clubs, corporations, professional institutions, and by thousands of individuals as a simple measureing stick to assist in determining what is "right" in human relations. If the Four-Way Test helps you, why not recommend it to your friends and associates?
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
 

 
 

Meeting place.....

The new meeting location is now official. Rotarians Kamal Gosine and Alan Powell admire the new sign as it was constructed earlier this week. In June of 2015, Tilton-Northfield Rotary Club changed its meeting location to Onions Restaurant located at 225 Main St.,Tilton.
 
As we continue to miss our friends at Greenside Restaurant, especially Linda and her staff, we remain thankful for all they've done for us over the past years.
 
 
Stop in and see us, we meet every Wednesday at 12:15.
 

 
 

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 
 

 
 

Service above Self -  Joseph LaPlante....

With all that we, as a club, have accomplished over the years, there's one Rotarian that stands out amongst us all. Joe LaPlante has been with the Tilton-Northfield Rotary Club since 1995. Joe has held many positions to include, but not limited to, President (twice), Assistant District Governor, Treasurer, Secretary, and Board Member. Joe is truly the backbone of our club. His knowledge, passion, and leadership has guided us throughout the last twenty years. Joe and his wife Grace, will be starting a new chapter in Minnesota soon. We will miss them dearly and can't say thank you enough to both of them for all they have done for our club and in our community.
 

 
 

Kids Annual Fishing Derby

Congratulations to Matthew Hebert for taking first place in the kids annual fishing derby held on May 17th at the Tilton Prep School pond. This is the club's 38th year in holding the fishing derby. Over the last several years the derby has been in honor of long time Rotarians Harry Laughy and Frank Tibbetts. There were approximately 70 children ranging in ages 1 through 15 that participated in the event. Many thanks to the Rotarians who helped make this year another fun day for our community youths! Thanks also go out to our sponsors and businesses who donated raffle prizes. A special thank you to Tilton School for allowing us to use their private pond!
 
For more pictures of the fishing derby, please see the photo album section.

Rotary condemns deadly attack on polio security personnel in Pakistan
Rotary members and our partners in the fight to eradicate polio offer our heartfelt condolences and express a deep sadness in the wake of a horrific bomb attack in Quetta, Pakistan, that took the lives of at least 15 security personnel on 13 January. This tragic attack outside a polio immunization center is a stark reminder of the dangers faced by Rotary, our partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, and the brave women and men on the front lines of our effort to protect all children from the paralyzing effects of polio. While the bombing will be investigated, one thing is clear:...
