NAUSET ROTARY STATEMENT ADOPTS REVISED VISION STATEMENT
 
 
The Nauset Rotary Club is a local group of Rotarians who are neighbors, business owners and employees brought together to help others who need assistance with their everyday challenges. The club leverages their Rotary pledge of "Service Above Self" by supporting other local organizations with hands on participation and funding where possible, striving to help those in need. The club is currently engaged in projects that include but are not limited to:
 
Our Nauset Rotary Club is assisting the Homeless Prevention Council with their annual Backpack-to-School program again in 2020. Please consider a contribution  to help purchase back to school supplies including gift cards for sneakers and technology needs.  We are hoping to raise $5,000 for students attending the Nauset school system. Also, please share the Go Fund Me information link below with your contacts.
 
 
On March 3rd 2020 Nauset Rotary Club members enjoyed a presentation from Jennifer Falk regarding her work with the Falk Family Foundation in the Dominican Republic. The foundation supports two K-6 elementary schools and has built 30 houses in the Republic. Our Nauset Club will be seeking the help of District 7950 and Rotary International to help raise funds for construction of wells at both of the schools. Information about the foundation can be found at www.falkfoundationforeducation.com
Nauset Regional High School Principal Chris Ellsasser presented the plans for renovation of the school on
 November 5th at our morning breakfast meeting.
 
 
On Friday September 20th, Nauset Rotary President Jennifer Whitaker and President Elect Robert Tucker presented retiring Orleans Police Department Lieutenant Kevin Higgins with a Paul Harris Fellowship certificate in recognition of his 31 years of service to the community. Also present were State representatives Sarah Peake and Timothy Whalen.

Our Nauset Rotary Club has started a campaign to assist the Homeless Prevention Council in Orleans with their mission to help families from Harwich to Provincetown avoid homelessness.
The Homeless Prevention Council provides close to 200 children each year from almost 100 different Lower Cape families with "Back To School Backpacks" loaded with school supplies. Nauset Rotary has partnered with them this year with the goal of providing new sneakers along with the back packs. Our goal is to raise $5,000 by August 1st for the purchase of new sneakers.
 
Contributions can be mailed to:  Nauset Rotary Club, P.O. Box 1846, Orleans, MA 02653-1846.
 
As part of our efforts to refocus our club vision/mission  at our club meeting on February 19th our speaker was Maureen Linnehan, a case manager working with the Homeless Prevention Council in Orleans.
 
Club members enjoyed a tour of the new Orleans Police Department facility at 99 Eldredge Park Way on Tuesday March 5th. At 7:30 AM Orleans Police Chief  Scott McDonald joined with us and led us on a tour of the new facility.  The Orleans Police Department is one of only two departments certified on Cape Cod.
