Now is the time to renew your subscription for 2021! Subscriptions also make great gifts.
The Annual Charter Night returned to being a fun evening at a member's home instead of in a restaurant so we could be "socially distanced". Thank you Kerry and Lori Uhler for inviting us to your beautiful back yard!
Ths Scholarship Committee was hard at work during the COVID 19 shut down, and was able to award scholarships to three deserving Seniors. Richard Peschel of Hillsboro-Deering was the recipient of the Vocational Scholarship; Hannah Champaign of John Stark the Rosenbleeth Scholarship; and Louis Marquardt of John Stark the Brook Burtt Scholarship. We wish the best of luck to all of our recipients and hope that when we start meeting in person they and their parents will be able to join us at one of our regular meetings.
Current events with the CoVID 19 virus have stunned all of us.  Our plans for celebrations like school and college graduations, weddings, holidays, and, yes the Henniker Rotary Annual Fire on the Mountain Chili Fest, originally scheduled for August 16 have all been put on hold waiting for decisions on public gatherings.  
The Rotary Board of Directors has been carefully considering what new norms would need to be in place regarding social distancing and food service restrictions for both servers and attendees. In addition to managing social distancing and large group gatherings, we have been particularly concerned about our ability to recruit restaurants to participate due to the impact the pandemic has had on them and the publics’ concerns about having open food service at the event. 
Given these uncertainties, we have come to the sad and difficult decision that we should cancel Chili Fest.
The Henniker Rotary Club is strong and will come through these hard times because we are “People of Action” and continue our commitment to both fund raising and the use of those funds for the communities we serve.  We are not going away. We have to change course and pivot to cope with these new norms but Rotary, and all of us, have been through hard times before.
The Henniker Rotary Club would like to say a special thank you to our long time partners and sponsors including: Pats Peak Ski Area, Granite Quill Publishers - The Messenger, 102.3  – The River, Ayer & Goss Fuels, Dunkin’ Donuts of Henniker, Davis & Towle Insurance Group, Edmunds ACE Hardware, Henniker Veterinary Hospital, New England College, Henniker Crushed Stone, Henniker Family Dentistry, Henniker Farm & Country Store, Henniker Pharmacy, Merrimack County Savings Bank and Morse Sporting Goods. Without this local business support, the Rotary Club “Fire on the Mountain Chili Fest would not have been the success it has been for the past 18 years.
And to all of you who attended the event over the years, thank you for helping the Rotary Club of Henniker make our service area of Henniker and Hillsborough such great communities of caring.  
We hope you will share in our optimism and that you find it in your hearts and minds to see the bright future ahead.  Please take time now to consider how you can continue your support for all that our Rotary Members do in the community.  For instance, check out our new “Flags over Henniker and Hillsboro” initiative (see attached and our facebook link) and stay tuned for information about future Rotary activities. Better still, consider joining our club and being part of this important service organization. Contact George Mobley to learn more. With you as part of our team, we will celebrate the great spirit that binds our community together.
We're very sorry, but due to the COVID-19 we've had to cancel this year's Rabies Clinic. Please contact your local Veterinarian and Town Clerk in order to license your dog. We're looking forward to seeing you next year.
We're fortunate to have two community members who have decided that we're not such a bad bunch and we think they're pretty special too! We have welcomed Joe Devine, Henniker Town Administration, and Business Consultant Jane Goodman into the Henniker Rotary Club.
Joe is shown here with his sponsor Peter Flynn, President Steve, and Membership Committee Chair George Mobley. Jane was inducted with President Steve, George, her sponsor Cathy Dias, and her husband Bill by her side.

The Henniker Rotary Club is pleased to announce an annual Community Flag Project in Henniker and Hillsboro to promote patriotism and to raise funds for charitable use in both communities. Similar programs have been successful throughout the United States and locally Hopkinton has done this for several years, with Weare also just starting a program.
Participation is easy, for a modest annual fee of$50.00 the Henniker Rotary Club will display an American Flag in your front yard or at your business around the five most patriotic days of the year: Memorial Day Weekend, Flag Day-June 14, Independence Day-July 4, Labor Day Weekend, and Veteran’s Day-November 11. At the placing of the flag for Memorial Day a short pipe will be driven into the ground and a 3’x5’ flag on a 10’ pole will be installed for each holiday. When the flag is removed after Veteran’s Day, the pipe will be removed. They do all the work and you have a beautiful American Flag displayed for the holidays while supporting your communities.
To get more information or to subscribe email The Henniker Rotary Club meets on Thursdays at 7:30am at the Henniker Congregational Church hall on Maple Street and currently has 35 members who are dedicated to giving back to their communities.
President Steve Neuhoff recently recognized three members (and one spouse) by giving them their pins signifying a Paul Harris Award. George Mobley received his first; Ruth Zax her 2nd Saffire, and Joe Clement his second Ruby and his wife Pat a second Saffire. Congratulations to all of the Paul Harris recipients!
