New Pollinator Resolution signed between Rotary District 7930 and the Essex National Heritage Area

Rotary District 7930 and the Essex National Heritage Area have signed a Pollinator Resolution in joint support of helping to reduce pollinator loss. In addition, the Salem Rotary Club and Marblehead Rotary Club have also co-signed the agreement on behalf of Rotary.

“Pollinator loss is a global environmental issue,” says Alexander Falk, Operation Pollination Ambassador and District Governor 2022-23 for Rotary District 7930. “It’s a global problem, as pollinators have declined by more than 45% worldwide in the past 50 years and are responsible for the reproductive success of more than 85% of the world's plants.”
Rotary District 7930 Governor 2021-22, Terry Rezendes Curran, agrees. "Rotary’s 1.2 million members are all about helping make the world a better place for our children and their children. By engaging Rotary’s Pollinator movement known as Operation Pollination, District 7930 is doing its part to help solve a global environmental crisis. We’re grateful for the critical partnership and cooperation of the Essex National Heritage Area in helping us move this important initiative forward in the Northeastern Massachusetts area, and we are excited that two local Rotary Clubs – Salem and Marblehead – have already signed on.”

Reading Rotary Gears Up for 2022 Fall Street Faire
Although it is just the beginning of summer, Reading Rotary is gearing up to host the 14th annual Reading Fall Street Faire on Sunday, September 11.  Members of this committee are hoping to host the biggest, best Fall Street Faire yet.
Under the leadership of YMCA Executive Director, Rotarian and Fall Street Faire Chair John Feudo, the fourteen-person committee has already started meeting and planning for Reading's biggest annual event.  According to Feudo, “This would be way too much work for one person to do alone. We have an incredible team. Some of the members are relatively new and bring great energy and enthusiasm. Some of the members have been doing this for years and just know how to get the job done. At the end of the day, we’re all proud to be able pull off an event of this scope for the whole town to enjoy.”

Wakefield's Father's Day Fishing Derby a Success
The Wakefield Rotary Club hosted its second Father’s Day Fishing Tournament at Lake Quannapowitt on Sunday, June 19th.  The free event, open to all ages, welcomed about 25 families fishing for various top spots.  Wakefield Rotary Vice-President Gene Mullen explained, “We were thrilled with the turn-out, despite the gloomy weather.”  He added, “It was great to see kids with their extended families.”  In fact, for many families, this event was their first fishing experience and the perfect opportunity to learn safe and responsible fishing techniques before casting their first line.”  Loaner rods were made available thanks to Mass Wildlife and bait was donated by Boats & Motors on North Avenue in Wakefield.
