Lebanon Rotary Celebrates Its 100th Anniversary

Jun 09, 2023 12:08AM ● By Virginia Dean
Congratulations to the Lebanon Rotary Club for being a pillar of support and generosity to its community for 100 years. With a motto of “Service Above Self,” the club’s contributions have had a lasting impact. The city is excited to announce, for example, Harmony Park on the Lebanon Mall was made possible by the generous donation of $55,000 from the Rotary Club of Lebanon. The park was dedicated on May 13 and included seven permanent features including chimes, percussion, and xylophone-like instruments. The park, which will also include benches, is in the open mall space adjacent to Village Pizza. Renovation of Riverside Park was also made possible due to the club’s donation of $10,700 that allowed the city to refinish and paint the pavilion roof and provide accessible picnic tables. The club also donated children’s library books in honor of speakers at the Kilton Library and used its time and manpower to flood the ice rink at Pat Walsh Park for all to enjoy in the winter.

For a century, the Rotary Club of Lebanon has served the Upper Valley region and the world at large. In 2019 alone, it raised more than $22,000 for the local community and volunteered over 400 hours of time. As the city celebrates this 100-year milestone, it recognizes the countless hours of volunteer work, fundraising efforts, and dedication that have made their contributions possible. The club’s century-long commitment to service has helped shape Lebanon into the thriving, caring, and vibrant community that it is today. The city looks forward to witnessing the positive impact the Rotary will make in years to come, including its outstanding contributions and being an exemplary partner in building a stronger and more harmonious community.
