This November and December the Arlington, MA Rotary Club has been busy! The club supported The Salvation Army of Cambridge, Massachusetts by serving Thanksgiving Lunch with students from Arlington Catholic, raising over $400 bell ringing, donating over 100 pairs of socks and creating 20 family game night bags for families in need. 
We honored Peter Lundstrom, Lead Teacher of the AHS Alternative Education Program, as a Paul Harris Fellow at Rotary District 7930's Heroes Dinner. 
We collected toiletries for a drive set up by one of our members kids through the Martin Richards Foundation. 
The club sponsored 10 children and teens engaged with the MA Department of Children and Families through the Wonderfund MA.
This year we were able to award $1,000 scholarships to three students: 
Ella Gomes - AHS alum attending McGill University 
Roy Cook - AC alum attending Fairfield University
Amanda Birenbach - Minuteman Alum attending Ithaca College
We donated $1,000 to Belle Isle Rotary Club's grant to send 10 students to Camp Rotary from the East Boston Boys and Girls Club. 
Our club is dedicated to Rotary's mission of Service above Self and are always looking for new volunteer opportunities and to team up with other clubs.
