News & Events
Last Friday several members of the Colchester-Milton Rotary, friends, and family spent a couple of hours gleaning at the Intervale. What is gleaning you ask? According to Wikipedia "Gleaning is the act of collecting leftover crops from farmers' fields after they have been commercially harvested or on fields where it is not economically profitable to harvest." The Intervale Center distributes the gleaned vegetables to organizations that assist those who are food insecure.
Operation Flags For Heroes has grown to 100 Flags at 3 locations in Milton and Colchester and raised over $6800 during the past year and now have 9 major sponsors. Our newest location is at the corner of Severance and Blakely Roads
The flags will be back as we are planning a major celebration for veteran’s which will be announced soon. Stay Tuned!
On August 14th we lost our beloved Rotarian Skip (Malcolm) Smith after a valiant battle against pancreatic cancer.  Skip was an active member of the Colchester-Milton Rotary Club.  
A memorial service was held on Saturday, September 26th to celebrate Skip's life. Following is a video slideshow and recollections of this spirit who touched all of our lives. 

From News Channel 5: "Anyone driving through Mallets Bay in Colchester these days will immediately notice the dozens of American flags. Every flag is sponsored by a community member in honor of a local hero.  A hero could be a veteran, front-line worker, or someone who's helped out during the pandemic. The project is called Operation Flags for Heroes. It's being put on by the Colchester-Milton Rotary Club. Organizers think seeing the flags every day means so much after such a tough year..."

Operation Flags For Heroes officially kicks off on Memorial Day weekend this year. Memorial Day is always a wonderful day to honor our Veterans who have given so much to our country.  And this year, in celebration of hopefully nearing the end of this difficult “Covid” period, it is also time to honor the essential workers including health care personnel, first responders, teachers and grocery and pharmacy employees. We all know someone who is a hero that should be honored.
The Colchester-Milton Rotary's annual [Virtual] Fill The Truck For The Food Shelf 2021 starts May 1st!
Hunger in Vermont remains higher than at any point in recent history, including the 2009 Recession.
We will be collecting only monetary donations again this year (due to Covid) for the entire month of May. Last year our goal was $5,000 and thanks to our generous community we raised over $9,200 for the Colchester, Milton & Grand Isle food shelves. This year, due to continued critical need, we're setting the bar high at $10,000. See below for details and how to donate.
