The Great Barrington Rotary Club 2021 Scholarship applications will be available on February 1, 2021. The applications may be accessed through the following link: greatbarringtonrotary.awardspring.com
Applicants must be graduates of Mount Everett or Monument Mountain High Schools. Students must be planning to attend a college, university, or technical school in the fall of 2021. Scholarships are for undergraduate programs only. Recipients are selected primarily on financial need with consideration of grades and school and community involvement.
The club supports scholarships primarily through our Annual Golf Tournament “Drive for Scholarships” held at Wyantenuck Country Club in July. The Club holds other events such as Truck Day, Pumpkinfest and Bike n Fly to support the students. The Student Assistance Fund of Rotary also accepts individual donations.
The applications are due electronically by April 15, 2021. Awards will be presented in May.
Many thanks to all who helped hang the holiday decorations downtown on Saturday.  Everything looks great and a jolly time was had by all.  Special thanks to Peter Dillon for organizing!
 
We had a very successful Radiothon Monday with over $6,600 raised. Ed McCormick, Julie Hannum and Bobbie Hallig rocked it as part of the on-air team. Stephanie Carlson, Barbara Manring and Ray Murray volunteered to answer the phones and take pledges. We were very pleased with the results!  Many thanks to those Rotarians who made it happen, to Smitty Pignatelli for helping out and to WSBS for giving us this valuable time on the air.
This May, the Great Barrington Rotary Club awarded a record breaking $60,000 in college scholarships to 58 youth.  All award recipients were graduates of Monument Mountain High School or Mt.Everett High School.  This brings our club's total to $1,000,000 in scholarships awarded over the past thirty-five years.  Thank you to all who work so hard to raise the money to make this possible.  Special thanks to Janet Dohoney and Mark DeCelle who provide leadership to this effort.
