The Rotary Club of Marblehead Harbor Announces the Return of Holiday Pops and The Holiday Pops Artist Reception

The Rotary Club of Marblehead Harbor is dedicated to the Rotary International motto “Service Before Self”.  Our service this year has included providing our community with local services and humanitarian efforts.  This year we are excited to again present our Holiday POPS to be held at Abbot Hall December 10th at 7pm. Tickets to this wonderful event can be purchased on this website.  Also on November 6th 12:30-2:30 we are hosting the Artist's Reception to honor Holly Aloha Jaynes who painted a beautiful oil titled "Across the Harbor".  Notecards, prints and giclees can be purchased at the event at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Marblehead on Mugford Street or on this webpage.

Our Club Helps Address Local Food Insecurity

Members of the Rotary Club of Marblehead Harbor are pleased to support the Marblehead Food Pantry with funds generously donated through our Holiday POPS events. Our commitment to the Food Pantry has been manifest in many ways in addition to financial support.  We have participated with the Post Office in collecting food donations from town residents, donating on a monthly basis the food requests from the pantry, and working at the Pantry at holiday times when special foods are available.  In addition to the Ford Pantry for many years we have made special dinners at Lifebridge on New Year’s Eve. This year member Judith Black, our liaison to Lifebridge organized members to cook meals at their homes and she got them to the building.  In January we are collaborating with regional groups to address the food insecurity concern.

Our Weekly Meetings and Guest Speakers

Our weekly meetings happen on Tuesday mornings at 7:30 am.  In this virtual, on-line world we have been able to enjoy speakers both local and who have joined us from a distance.  For example, when we for three weeks dealt with racial justice concerns, we had a speaker from Madagascar join Marbleheaders in discussing growing up in a multiracial home, we had a local and folks from Boston help us understand the concerns of METCO students and their families, and recently we were joined by Rotary members from a club in Ghana who we have supported with donations to their maternal and child health project. 
Our Rotary club, know for its service to our community and to the world will continue to provide service as we navigate our Covid world.
