The Jefferson/Sparta Rotary club is proud to welcome the following new members:

  • Kelly Evans, owner of Signs Etc. in Sparta
  • Bill Askin of the law firm of Askin & Hooker LLC Attorneys at Law in Sparta
  • Nicole Francoeur, owner of Rose City Framemakers in Sparta
  • Frank Brunke, real estate agent with Caldwell Banker Residential Brokerage

The four new members were installed on January 18 at Il Porto Restaurant by Margit Rahill. Margit is not only a member of the Jefferson/Sparta Rotary Club, but is currently serving as the District Governor of Rotary District 7470.

The Jefferson/Sparta Rotary Club was started in 1965 and currently has 26 members. The mission of the Jefferson/Sparta Rotary Club is to provide community service for the betterment of each town.

The club meets on Wednesdays at 12:15 p.m. at Portofinos Restaurant, except every third week the club meets at Il Porto Restaurant in Sparta. Guests are always welcomed to attend the meetings.

Thanks to a great team of groups and programs our club has recently engaged in a very worthwhile endeavor!  Project Welcome home is a program launched by our Club in conjunction with the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 327 in 2015. 
 

District Governor Frank Geraghty was on hand at Portofino's Restaurant on July 1st to induct our two newest members. Kathleen (Kate) Perlett sponsored by  Alice Szigethy,  and Mendi Asani sponsored by Margit Rahill became the first two inductees for the 2015- 2016 Rotary year.  Mendi is the owner of Portofino's, while Kate whose office is in Sparta works in the home health field.  We look forward to our newest members becoming an integral part of our club, working on our future projects. 

 
 
This month, the Jefferson Township Rotary Club was proud to award 2 scholarships at both the Jefferson Township High School and at the Sparta Township High School.
 
Each scholarship was for $500.00 and awarded to 1 student from each school.
