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.

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!
