June 23, 3 NB Rotarians and a guest were treated to an in-depth tour of Mayorga Organics, recipients of our Club’s first Business of the Year Award. Thanks to Linda for organizing this fascinating experience. We now know more about coffee than anyone else in North Bethesda! Participants on the tour were Steve Vaccarezza, Ron Sigelman and his guest and John Waterston.
These masked participants in the North Bethesda Rotary Club’s Covid Challenge are as formidable as they appear! They’re preparing to get out, get moving and meet their fitness goals while helping our community. Registering for the Covid Challenge benefits Mercy Medical Clinic, MobileMed and the Rotary Charitable Foundation of North Bethesda. Please join them! See the home page for the Sign Up button.
For the third year running, the Club donated school supplies and backpacks to Interfaith Works for distribution to needy families in Montgomery County. Our donation was accepted by Interfaith Works on Saturday, August 15th, at an annual gala: the Park Potomac Ice Cream Social for Charity. Due to the COVID pandemic, this year’s program was replaced by a parade up Park Potomac Avenue. The Club’s parade banner was proudly carried by our members; our position was behind an antique fire truck and in front of the P.O.M. Squad of talented young cheerleaders. While the enthusiastic crowd treated themselves to free hot dogs and Italian ices, Club members distributed flyers for our upcoming Club-sponsored COVID Challenge Fundraiser.
