Rotary announces the results of its annual Fall Raffle 
The Annual Rotary Restaurant Raffle has been a tradition of the Mad River Valley Rotary for many years and has been the source of considerable funds for its charitable giving program.  This year the Rotary decided to make some changes in support of the many businesses and restaurants that may have been impacted by COVID-19.  In place of the “Dinner for Two and other Culinary Delights” raffle, the club held a “Restart the Valley Rotary Raffle”.  The change focused on Restaurants of the Valley and the Valley Businesses. The Rotary purchased 130 Gift Certificates from Valley Restaurants and Businesses rather than asking for donations as was done in the past.  These gift certificates were raffled off on January 20, 2021.  About $15,000 was raised and all proceeds will benefit worthy causes in the Mad River Valley. The generosity of all who participated by purchasing raffle tickets is especially appreciated this year.  Gift Certificates will be mailed to the winners.

Welcome to our club

We are the Mad River Valley Rotary Club with over 50 members. We are your neighbors, friends, and business acquaintances. We are young, old, men, and women who volunteer our time to make the Mad River Valley a better place to live. 

As a chapter of Rotary International, we aspire to make a difference right here in the Mad River Valley and beyond. Our commitment is to community service, building friendships, and developing leaders. Our international exchange program cultivates understanding beyond Vermont and is a life changing experience for those who participate.

All that we say, think and do is based on the four-way test:

  • Is it the truth;
  • Is it fair to all concerned;
  • Will it build goodwill and better friendships;
  • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Through fundraisers, raffles and community events we support local organizations and global projects providing a broad range of services, from assistance for those in need, to arts and culture.

We invite you to attend a weekly meeting to learn more about Rotary and how you can help the community in which we live.
