News & Events
Our annual Fill The Truck For The Food Shelf is underway for the month of May!
Please help The Colchester-Milton Rotary ‘Fill The Truck’ with food for local families who need your support to be hunger-free in 2023.
A study by the Vermont Foodbank and Feeding America shows that 1 in 4 people, or an estimated 153,000 people, in Vermont turn to food shelves and meal service programs to feed themselves and their families. This includes 33,900 children and 26,010 seniors.
Get all the details on how you can help here:
We will be collecting non-perishable food and monetary donations for the entire month of May.
100% of all food & funds donated will go to the Colchester Community Food Shelf, The Milton Family Community Center, and the Champlain Islands Food Shelf
On May 22nd between the hours of 10:00 am and 3:00 pm, we’ll roll up our sleeves and help save lives!  The Colchester/Milton Rotary Club with the help of Our Lady Grace Catholic Church will proudly partner with the American Red Cross to hold what we expect to be the first of many blood drives.  The Red Cross has over 135 years of experience providing humanitarian aid – including more than 75 years of supplying blood to those in need. 
Thanks to all who made our Operation Flags For Heroes Veterans Day Celebration a great success and thanks to all Heroes for your service.
For those who weren't able to attend here's the video (below) thanks to Lake Champlain Access Television.
Please join the Colchester/Milton Rotary this Friday, November 11th to celebrate our Veterans and other local heroes. We will hold two separate Veterans Day Celebrations in Milton and Colchester.  The purpose of these events is to celebrate and recognize all of our local heroes in the community.  These include our veterans as well as medical workers, first responders, all essential workers, teachers, and our local neighbors who have supported our communities in many different ways.
Milton High School (MHS) students Omar Moran & Lilly Noreault were this year's MHS recipients of the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) in recognition of the completion of the RYLAcurriculum June 24 - 26, 2022.
Rotary Youth Leadership Awards aim to:
  • Demonstrate Rotary's respect and concern for youth
  • Enhance leadership skills and development for youth
  • Encourage leadership of youth by youth
  • Recognize youth who are rendering service to their community
Omar and Lilly are also members of the MHS Rotary Interact Club. Interact clubs bring together young people ages 12-18 to develop leadership skills while discovering the power of Service Above Self.
