The Colchester-Milton Rotary collected donations of duffle bags, backpacks, and suitcases for the Department of Children and Families in Franklin and Chittenden Counties. As of July 2021 the census for children in state custody was 140 in Franklin and 159 in Chittenden County. Social workers show up at homes needing to remove children because of issues of neglect, physical abuse, parental substance use, and a variety of other reasons.  As you can imagine a removal can be traumatic for children who often don’t have the time everyone would like to gather what they need and what they want; often needing to put their stuff into whatever’s handy – including garbage bags.  The Colchester-Milton Rotary club decided to help and asked for donations of duffle bags, backpacks, and suitcases. The goal of 50 bags was surpassed with a total of 135 bags! 
A special Thank You to Leora Black & Karen Trombley for organizing this event.
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.
