Introducing Robbie the Rotary Rabbit

I’m Robbie, the Rotary Rabbit…your club MASCOT

 

 

Here are five reasons we need ROBBIE:

 

Mascots add personality

Mascots really stand out

Mascots can give you a competitive edge on social media

Mascots entertain and engage

Mascots are FUN!

 

To read more about these ideas, go to: https://www.bammascots.com/blog/top-5-reasons-why-you-need-a-mascot.  That’s where this information came from.

 

As Robbie hops around Manchester, he will be the icebreaker I will use to introduce folks to Rotary. Who wouldn’t want their picture taken with the ROTARY MASCOT?! Free publicity! 

 

Once each month there will be a “Where’s Robbie?” photo up on our webpage, https://www.manchesterctrotary.org/.  The first correct guess wins a prize!

 

Watch for coming attractions and activities with ROBBIE.

2019 Camp Farwell
 

story-thumbnail
November 25, 2019
 
What does it take to send 33 Manchester girls to summer camp in Newbury, Vermont over the past 15 years? It takes the dedication, commitment, collaboration and teamwork between Manchester Rotarians and Manchester Knights. It takes their gas-powered leaf blowers and string trimmers. It takes dozens of rakes, leaf barrels and some dump trucks. And it takes the support and cooperation of the Manchester school system to identify girls who would most benefit from a life-changing, summer camp experience who otherwise may not have had the opportunity without this unique program.

Quote of the Week - Who Said It?

How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong. Because someday in life you will have been all of these.
