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.
Join us and help celebrate Andover's unsung heros!
UPDATE ON 2015 POLAR PLUNGE
Rotary District 7930’s Polar Plunge has been postponed yet again until April 11th 2015 at Long Beach in Gloucester adjacent Cape Ann Motor Inn. Originally planned for January 31st, the event has been postponed first for February 7th then March 7th and now April 11th. What is shaping up to be the snowiest winter in Massachusetts has not spared Cape Ann or Gloucester with blizzard after blizzard and mounting snow banks, narrower roads, and tough conditions to hold such an event. Billed and promoted as New England’s Favorite Winter Beach party the plunge will, barring any more snow storms of significance finally take place on April 11th at Long Beach in Gloucester adjacent Cape Ann Motor Inn.
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.
