• East Haven Rotary Club

    The East Haven Rotary Club is celebrating its 78th year. The East Haven Chapter was organized on March 3, 1939. Since that time, the Rotarians have been involved in thousands of projects helping East Haven residents.
    The East Haven Rotary Club provides “Service Above Self” to local, state, national and international communities, with events, such as, Thanksgiving Dinner Deliveries and the Clothe the Children campaign.

    Founded in 1905, Rotary International is recognized as the world’s first volunteer service organization. Today there are more than 1.2 million Rotarians in 34,000 Rotary Clubs, located in 200 countries around the world. Rotary International’s motto “Service Above Self” is the guiding principle as we focus our efforts on providing service within our communities and throughout the world. Our participation in Rotary International’s Clean Water Initiative is one example.

    We welcome new members. If you are interested in joining our club, please visit us at Twin Pines or email us: easthavenrotary17@gmail.com

  • Thanksgiving Dinner Distribution

    For the twelfth year in a row The East Haven Rotary Club will be providing East Haven residents a FREE full course Thanksgiving Dinner available for pickup or delivery at the East Haven Senior Center on Thanksgiving Day from 10 am until 11:30 am. In addition to a turkey dinner, the Rotary will be providing all the traditional holiday “fixings” including a dessert.

    The Rotary will package the dinners for takeout and arrangements may be made to pick them up or even have them delivered, if transportation is not available.

    East Haven residents intending to partake in the holiday meal are being asked call Rotarian Ashley Lesco at (203) 903-6124 or by email to: ashant61805@yahoo.com by no later than Thursday November 15th. Residents must indicate the number of meals needed and if they are requesting a delivery rather than picking up the food at the Senior Center. All meal deliveries will begin at 10:30 am or must be picked up from the Senior Center, 91 Taylor Avenue no later than 11:30 am on Thanksgiving Day.

    With the continuing economic climate, many more families may find themselves in need of some type of assistance and the Rotary is encouraging residents to feel comfortable to participate in this program. Last year the Rotary provided more dinners than ever before.

    With the increasing needs of the community, monetary donations would be greatly appreciated. Anyone wishing to donate may also contact any East Haven Rotarian or mail checks payable to East Haven Rotary Club, Inc. “Thanksgiving Donation” c/o Carl Ruggiero, 12 Oak Hill Drive, East Haven, CT 06513.
