Four Way Speech Contest

Congratulations to this year’s Newport Rotary Four Way Speech Contest winner, Olivia Rasmussen and three runners up, Kaitlin Carroll, Victoria Burroughs and Alex Whipple. As always all four students gave excellent talks on  topics which had to include the Rotary Four Way Test of 1) Is it the truth, 2) Is it fair to all concerned, 3) Will it build good will and better friendships and 4) Will  it be beneficial to all concerned.

 Kaitlin will go on to the District semi-finals in Henniker on May 6. Best of luck to Kaitlin as she represents the best of Newport.

 Thank you to all the students who took the time  and made the effort to participate in this year’s Newport Rotary Four Way Speech Contest.

Newport Rotary Ski Day has come to an end

After 50 years the Newport Rotary Ski Day and McCrillis Cup Race has come to an end. We have enjoyed the friendship and comradery of all the Rotary clubs and Rotarians who have joined us over the years. Unfortunately the interest and participation waned and we decided to call it quits.

Thank you to all who joined us over those 50 great years.
