Club News & Events
On Saturday, August 1st  Ron Roberge, Ron Lewis, Todd Burgess, Dan Johnson, Kevin Endres and Bob Mohr and I (Sue Mohr) painted the front of the Colchester Food Shelf.  Kevin delivered the lift with Stacey and Patrick, The others painted like crazy on the lift and two ladders, while Bob and I offered support and “expert” ground advice.  It went quickly  and relatively easily (easy for me to say since I was on the ground).  
It really felt great to get out and do something to help our community, especially in these limiting times.

Thank you all so much

On July 7th, 2020 the Rotary Club of Colchester-Milton presented the Colchester Community Food Shelf with a check for $4,840.00 from the Club’s Fill The Truck For The Food Shelf campaign. Club member John Abry presented the check to the president of the food shelf, Marcia Devino. Marcia stated that “We are extremely thankful for the continued support of the Colchester-Milton Rotary and this donation will supply a whole month worth of food supplies for the food shelf.” 
Our -Virtual - Fill The Truck For The Food Shelf 2020 was a HUGE success! Donations totaled $9,207.00 which was almost double our original goal. The volume of donations was truly amazing! The overwhelming support in this historical time of need has truly brought out the best in our community. We really can't thank you enough and our food shelves will truly appreciate your donations.
Your help is needed now more than ever as food insecurity has risen 33% during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year we will be 'filling the truck' (virtually) with online donations.
According to a recent Vermont Business Magazine article "Food insecurity in Vermont has increased by one-third during the coronavirus pandemic, according to a statewide survey conducted by the University of Vermont at the end of March.
Due to the current Stay At Home order the Colchester-Milton Rotary Club is now meeting online and currently using the Zoom platform. We had our first online meeting this week which worked quite well and will be meeting each Thursday at noon until further notice. Should you like to join one of our meetings or would like to present at a meeting please contact us and we'll get you set up to join.
