The Rotary Club of Clarenville has a lot to celebrate this holiday season! Not only have they had a very strong year with many successful community projects and a great online auction fundraiser, they have also created long lasting and impactful partnerships with other groups in their community, such as the Girl Guides. Most recently a major partnership with the Kiwanis club has not only brought the local music festival into the fold of the Rotary Club's projects but has also brought an influx of new members to their club.
The Rotary Club of Clarenville began the Rotary year with 12 members and at their recent Christmas Social (December 10) they inducted three of the eleven new members to be added this year.  This is a strong club with a welcome presence in their community; a small club with a huge impact! Rotarian Dean Halleran and his wife Debbie invited club members into their home on December 10th for a lovely potluck dinner. AG Leanne Whelan and District Membership Chair, Gail Gosse attended the event where President Joe Twyne welcomed Jennifer Barrett, Kim Greenland, and Sarah Small to the Rotary Club of Clarenville. As is typical of this group of Rotarians, they all went out of their way to welcome Gail, Leanne, and their newest members. The ceremony was the highlight of the evening and a wonderful time was had by all! Congratulations to all the members of the Rotary Club of Clarenville!
