What is Citizen Who Care and Educator of the Year?
Citizens Who Care (CWC) is Andover's longest running program that honors outstanding community volunteers. Since 1996 the Rotary Club of Andover has honored 10 people each year who have contributed to the local community through their extraordinary volunteer contributions. Those chosen exemplify what it means to be an "unsung hero." They come in all ages, professions and The Educator of the Year (EOY) started in 2009 and honors one exceptional educator chosen by his or her peers.

UPDATE ON 2015 POLAR PLUNGE
After a winter of epic proportions delayed the plunge three times, Rotary District 7930’s Polar Plunge took place April 11th 2015 at Long Beach in Gloucester adjacent Cape Ann Motor Inn. To raise awareness and critically-needed funds to fight the crippling disease polio, members of the Rotary Club of Andover plunged into the icy waters off of Gloucester as part of the Rotary District 7930’s 5th Annual Polar Plunge. The effort benefited The Rotary Foundation, the volunteer fundraising arm of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative - a public-private partnership that also includes the World Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, UNICEF, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This year’s effort raised over $104,000 and will be matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. At just 60 cents per vaccine, the effort will pay for over a half million polio vaccines.
The Rotary Club of Andover is pleased to honor the memory of the late Philip Mercandetti, Barbara Dolan, and other former Andover residents by awarding scholarships in their names to deserving graduating Andover high school students.
To be considered, eligible students must reside in Andover, not be a direct relative of a Rotarian, and will be attending an institution of higher learning during the next school semester.
Selection will be based on completeness of all information requested — need, community service, scholastic history, and future goals. Candidates will be invited to interview personally with the Rotary Club of Andover's Scholarship Committee, who will make the final decision. The scholarships will be awarded to the selected students upon proof of enrollment and attendance at their school of choice.
