 Rotary Club of Marblehead Harbor Presents a Free Concert For All!
Holiday Pops Reimagined 2020
Virtual Concert on December 12 at 7pm
 
Dear friends near and far, This continues to be a difficult year; we all will be modifying many of our beloved holiday traditions. The Rotary Club of Marblehead Harbor also is adapting our Holiday POPS concert. We are providing, as a special gift to all music lovers and all who want a virtual way to celebrate the holidays, our annual Holiday Pops Concert for 2020 online at no cost.
 
The Holiday Pops Reimagined 2020 will air 7:00 pm on December 12. Please go to our webpage https://rotaryclubofmheadharbor.org/ or our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/rotaryclubofmarbleheadharbor/ for the links. We hope everyone will tune in to enjoy beautiful music to raise our spirits and keep the season bright. Dirk Hillyer and the Hillyer Festival Orchestra will be joined by musicians, soloists, and performers young and old, who will entertain with Christmas and Channukah songs, stories, holiday reminiscences and musical sing-a-longs. The virtual nature of the event will allow many more than usually can attend in person at Marblehead’s Abbot Hall.
 
The Rotary of Marblehead Harbor Holiday POPS concert has long been a major fund raiser for local charities, with all of the proceeds going to organizations. These include our Rotary scholarship fund for local students, the Marblehead Food Bank, the Marblehead Female Humane Society, and the Marblehead Council on Aging.
If you are able to make a contribution, thank you! If not, just sit back and enjoy a Holiday gift from the Rotary Club of Marblehead Harbor, as always dedicated to making our town and our world a better place. Donations may be made on the RCOMH website at www.rotaryclubofmheadharbor.org.  At the website you also may purchase some of the beautiful art work painted by this year’s POPS artist Steve Limon.

TO HELP END POLIO
Rotary is very, very close to help eradicating polio.
As matter of fact, "we are more than 99% of the way there, but finishing the job is a big challenge," says Bill Gates.
Why does Rotary and its partner - The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation - care so much about eradicating polio? Because if polio is not eradicated hundreds of thousands of children could be paralyzed, their quality of life drastically dininished, while global health care costs would rise dramatically.
To keep this from happening we need to immunize 400 million children against polio every year, improve the ability to survey and monitor new cases, and hire 150 thousand health workers to go door to door abd find every child.
There are fewer cases of polio today then ever before but we still need help to bring it down to zero.
So we are 99% there, but crossing the finish line is the most challenging.
We can do it with your help.
You may get in touch with the Rotary Club of Marblehead Harbor to find out how you too can help eradicate polio.
