The Rotary Santa and Reindeer, along with the carolers, arrived in downtown Winchester after Thanksgiving, thanks to this group of volunteers. 
Big Thanks!
The Interact Club has been busy volunteering for the Halloween window decorating downtown and planning to help us deliver meals to the Winchester Housing Authority on December 14th.  Here is a picture of the officers with their fearless leader, Paula!
Your Rotary Foundation dollars spearhead initiatives encouraging and assisting people who want a better life close to home and beyond our boundaries. 
Please donate NOW for 2023 by visiting, logging in, setting up an account, and contributing to the Annual Fund or the Polio Fund.  The Rotary Club of Winchester is looking for 75% participation from our club.
Please help us reach our goal! 
Yours in Rotary, Gail LaRocca, Foundation Chair
Our Rotary Club sponsored Muraco Elementary School repairs last spring for their Gaga Pit.  Gaga is a fast-paced, high-energy sport played in an octagonal pit. The more players, the better! Dubbed a kinder, gentler version of dodgeball, the game is played with a soft foam ball and combines the skills of dodging, striking, running, and jumping, while trying to hit opponents with a ball below the knees. All the local schools have a pit.  
We are seeking members to join the nominating committee for officers.  If you would like to join or are interested in becoming a future officer or board member of our club, please reach out to Paula @
Thanks to Maryann, Derrick, Brian, and Rick for extra volunteer time this past Saturday at Mission of Deeds.  It's so great to have two new service members join for our monthly volunteer time.  Thank you!

We are sad to announce that on September 21, 2023, at 94, Sherman Whipple “Whip” Saltmarsh Jr. of Winchester, Massachusetts passed away.

He was a lifelong resident of Winchester, attended public schools, and graduated from Winchester High School, Kimball Union Academy, and Boston College. He served in the U.S. Navy.
He also has had a distinguished career that spanned 43 years in public service, serving in positions within the Winchester community, including his terms as a Selectman, first being elected in 1959.
A big thanks to our sponsors, golfers, volunteers, and staff at the Winchester Country Club for another successful charity golf event.  Your support allows our club to assist local, regional, and international charities with their great work this upcoming year.  
We proudly support three local organizations in September with grants for their great work!  The Mission of Deeds, Glen Doughty Memorial Foundation, and YMCA.
Paul Gleason was honored with a Paul Harris Fellow award last week.  He is a multiple Paul Harris award recipient and a long-time club member.   Jack gave a fantastic overview of his lifetime achievements.  Congrats Paul!
