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.

What millennials love about Rotary
From the May 2016 issue of The Rotarian If there is one absolute truth about millennials, it is this: Anyone who says there is an absolute truth about millennials risks being subjected to their collective eye roll. Millennials are individuals, and fiercely so. According to the Pew Research Center, most of them don’t even like being called “millennials,” let alone hearing generalizations about their shared attitudes and behaviors. Case in point: Christa Papavasiliou, 31, recoils at the notion that older folks see her generation as a bunch of selfie-snapping smartphone addicts. “I’m the...
Crisis at the doorstep
From the May 2016 issue of The Rotarian More than a million refugees from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan streamed into the European Union last year. Most entered via Greece after a harrowing raft trip across the Aegean Sea from Turkey. Once there, they made their way north, often on foot, traveling more than 1,000 miles through the rugged mountains of the Balkan countries toward Germany. That was the uncertain odyssey facing Muhammad Mallah Hamza, a 26-year-old ethnic Kurd, in late 2014 when he decided to leave his native Syria. The trip would lead the recent college graduate to a picturesque...
What's next for Rotary?
From the May 2016 issue of The Rotarian Demographic change is a drama in slow motion. It unfolds incrementally, tick by tock, but it transforms societies in fundamental ways – and the America of the early 21st century is undergoing two such dramas at the same time. Our population is en route to becoming majority nonwhite at the same time a record share of us (like me) is going gray. Either trend by itself would be the dominant demographic story of its era. The fact that they’re unfolding simultaneously has created giant generation gaps. The United States is at a moment in its history when...
Culture: Consuming passions
From the May 2016 issue of The Rotarian A friend recently said something to me that was shocking, maybe even a little subversive. She could afford to retire now, she said, because of this amazing reality: “I don’t need to buy anything more. I have everything I need.” Was this America, home of the free parking with purchase and the brave doorbuster shoppers? The land whose fruited plains are dotted with storage lockers and Container Stores for all our excess stuff? My friend maintained her love of country but held firm. She has enough clothes; her house is fully furnished. She is done. And, at...
Travel: Strange trips
From the May 2016 issue of The Rotarian Over the years, I have regurgitated my share of dodgy dishes eaten on the road. I have had my appendix removed in a Tanzanian hospital. I have watched helplessly, imagining the discovery of my shriveled corpse, as my blood pooled on the floor of a guesthouse room in Borneo after I pulled a leech off my ankle. I know that the last place you want to end up while traveling is in the hospital. Yet, apart from the usual bodily afflictions that come with travel, even stranger maladies prey on our minds when we are abroad. Less well understood than their...
