The Rotary Club of New Market Board of Directors (BOD) in action -- no we are not taking a nap ! Our Board of Directors provide both the strategic direction and continuity and decision making required to run a diverse service organization. It is by no means an easy task and requires many additional hours spent outside normal club meetings. This has been a very busy summer for the Rotary Club of New Market and our BOD has kept us on track as we continue to serve both the local community and the world around us through Service Above Self !

GUEST VISITORS


The Rotary Club of New Market was honored to have as its guest speaker today Mr. Todd Walters, Town Manager for New Market VA. Todd, brought the club up to speed on a number of current issues that directly impact our club and the local community such as: the projected expansion of housing on Click's lane: the future use of the Community Center and recapitalization of the town's aging water supply/storage tower.
Being a Town Manger is by no means an easy task and we appreciate Todd taking the time out of his busy schedule to meet with us.



The Rotary Club of New Market was blessed today to hear from two guest speakers -- Chief Chris Rinker and the town's newest employee "Benelli."
Chris explained that as a "Facility Dog" Benelli is trained to provide comfort and support to victims of trauma and those with mental health concerns.
It is always a pleasure to have our Chief at our meetings as he is one of the keystones of our local community but especially now that Benelli is with him.
Benelli was made an honorary member of the New Market Club today as he abides by our motto "Service Above Self.


Mr. Jim Douglas (President Emeritus) provides the Rotary Club of New Market with a detailed overview of how to prepare your lawn, garden, and trees for the Fall and Winter season. Jim was a county extension agent for years from Alaska to the lower 48 and his expertise is always valued by our members. Many sideline conversations continued after his detailed presentation! Both Jim and his wife Caroll are extremely active in the local community and are both Paul Harris Fellows. We are blessed to have them in our community.
