The Henniker Rotary Club was chartered in 1984. It serves the communities of Hillsborough, Deering, and Henniker. It is one of nearly 31,000 Rotary International Clubs world-wide with a mission of providing humanitarian service, promoting high ethical business and professional standards, increasing communication among peoples, and making our world a better place in which to live. Rotary International's overall goal is to help build goodwill, understanding and peace.


The Club has given over $200,000 to local service projects, scholarships to area high school graduates, to people in need, and to other community projects. Our projects include:


      The Outdoor Guide

Each year The Henniker Rotary Club sponsors annual fundraising events and projects, the Annual Chili Fest in the summer; The Henniker Rotary Club Raffle Calendar in the fall; and the Rabies Clinic at the Henniker Fire Station in the spring. The Henniker Rotary Club supports The Rotary Foundation, which carries out a variety of projects addressing critical issues including poverty, hunger, illiteracy, clean water and health. Rotary has contributed to the success of the eradication of polio around the world. Our club's outreach has provided clean water to villages in Nicaragua and sent water filters to Honduras. Recently the club supported a grant to purchase text books for school in Kabul Afghanistan, and a Safe Passage project to help the needy in Guatemala.


This past year our club lost two distinguished Rotarians, Jean-Louis Nicknair and Walter Robinson, who were both founding members of the Club. They gave over 20 years of service to the Henniker Rotary Club. Both Jean-Louis and Walter were dedicated faculty members at New EnglandCollege for more than 30 years. Jean- Louis was President of our club and went on to be District Governor for Southern Vermont and New Hampshire. He contributed in many ways to make the world a better place with peace and goodwill. It is with great pride we have dedicated this year's publication of the Outdoor Guide to Jean-Louis Nicknair and Walter Robinson.
