COHASSET Rotary has partially funded the renovation of a greenhouse and gardens at the E. Bridgewater campus of Chapman Farm School to become a science classroom and learn sustainable business practices as they grow and sell vegetables, herbs and create herb soaps.
We are looking forward to seeing what expertise these two retired high school Quincy teachers can share with the middle and high school students at the Chapman Farm School! Retirement seems to be quite an exciting adventure for the Swanson!
Incredibly inspiring speakers at District 7950 Conference.

Dr Den Walters paddled her 18' kayak, which she made(!), 2503 miles from the coast of Maine to Guatemala to bring attention to the 10,000 people, the poorest of the poor, living in the Guatemala City dump. 5000 of the dump residents collect food and scraps to sell, to feed and support their families. During Deb's paddle she spent evenings speaking on behalf of the children, mothers and school started in the dump by Hanley Denning, providing education, nutrition and health. Today that school has a 40% graduation rate whereas the country has a 10% graduation rate. Their graduates make 5x the family income of an average Guatemalan family due to the fabulous education thru Safe Passages. Dr Deb Walters raised $425,000 paddling in addition to awareness of Safe Passages of which she has served as president, and the recipients of the 2015 Rotary Global Women of Action Award.
Razia Jan, recipient of CNN Top 10 Hero, as well as recipient of the 2015 Rotary Global Women of Action Award, founded a school for girls in rural Afghanistan which helps to combat the two major diseases in Afghanistan - Polio and Illiteracy. She teaches her present 559 girls to be a 'full person' responsible for their own life and living. And what do the young high school graduates do upon graduation?Razia has now begun a college as well with nursing and midwifery as majors along with accounting - so they may count their money:)! Girls who were being married off at eleven years old are now holding off until after graduation. "Empowering women is the key to global change" - Razia Jan
Dave Clifton, it is amazing all the shoes you have worn in your 40 years as a Rotarian, and all the countries you have been able to walk in during your years of service! Rotarians serve others and expose us to people we never would have been able to meet and learn from in the process. Hundreds and hundreds of people have been blessed as you exemplify living out the Rotarian 4-Way Test.
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concern?
Will it build GOOD WILL and better FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concern?
Thank you for visiting Cohasset Rotary Club last night and sharing your words of wisdom as you represent Zone 32.

How do you win this much cash?
Step 1- Attend a Cohasset Rotary Club meeting
Step 2- Pay $1 for a chance at the lucky ticket (50% goes towards our grants and 50% goes in the 'pot')
Step 3- When you have the lucky ticket number, pick from a deck of cards TWICE and try to get the Jack of Spades...If you don't get it the two cards you picked are ripped up and the next week the odds are better with less cards!
Step 4- REPEAT steps 1-3 until the Jack of Spades is pulled.
Congratulations Ed Fox the lucky recipient of a pile of cash after about 24 weeks of failed attempts!
Come join the Rotary Club and have fun while fundraising, meeting new people and raising allot of money to give out as grants focusing on Health, Education, Clean Water & Sanitation and PEACE.
