Four Dedham High School seniors were awarded $1,000 scholarships by the Club toward college expenses in Fall 2016.  They are:  Jacob Farnham, Christopher Olliney, Olivia Kane, and Ariana Barletta. All students have superior academic records and spent many months doing community service.  These scholarships are awarded each year, and new applications are available in March 2017 in the guidance department of  Dedham High School.   Dedham residents who attend Catholic Memorial, Noble and Grenough, Ursaline Academy, and Xaverian Brothers are also eligible to apply.  Dedham Rotary Club wishes all scholarship recipients the best in their future studies.
 
 

 
 
On Sunday, May 1, 2016 at 11 am, Samantha and Rotarian Jeannine Latham will visit and "read" at the Blue Bunny Bookstore in Dedham, MA.  Samantha is a very friendly black Lab who is in training with Jeannine to live with, and assist, a disabled child or veteran when her training is completed.  Jeannine has been working with Samantha for over one year each weekend to expose her to a variety of environments, situations, and experiences.  While at the Blue Bunny, Samantha will demonstrate how an assist dog can help its owner, while stories are being read to the children.  Come out to meet Samantha and bring your camera! 
 

 
 
On March 23, 2016, the Dedham Rotary Club delivered 100 floral arrangements to the residents of Traditions, 735 Washington Street, Dedham, to celebrate Spring's entrance.  Lillian Delmonico, Executive Director at Traditions, welcomed the Club to set up blue iris and baby breath in vases, tied with yellow and blue ribbons, Rotary's signature colors.  None of the residents were given advance notice of the delivery, and all were pleasantly surprised to receive their floral gift.  Rotarians met with them, while in the main dining room, enjoying lunch.  New friendships were formed, and Club members were happy to once again put smiles on the faces of our local senior citizens.   
 
Each spring, the Dedham Rotary Club chooses a new facility to deliver flowers to its residents.  Last year, it was Emeritus, now Brookdale, in Dedham.  The Dedham Rotary Club is committed to serving its senior citizens, and is grateful for the many contributions they have made to our community over the years. 
 

 
 
The Dedham Rotary Club is again offering four $1,000 scholarships to Dedham residents.  Senior high school students, who will be attending college in September 2016, and enrolled in one of the following schools are eligible to apply:  Dedham High School, Noble & Grenough, Ursaline Academy, Catholic Memorial, Xaverian Brothers, Norfolk Agricultural School, and Blue Hills Technical/Vocational.  Applications are available in the Guidance Departments of these schools on March 20; the deadline for filing is April 30; and award recipients notified by June 1, 2016.  Scholarship awards are based on academic achievement and financial need.  Send completed applications to:  Dedham Rotary Club, P. O. Box 122, Dedham, MA  02027.

It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
