The people of Stowe primarily know Stowe Rotary members as committed volunteers at virtually every community event at which volunteers are necessary.  From directing traffic and parking at the Stowe Performing Arts Music in the Meadow Series and staffing the grill at Stowe's Fourth of July celebration, the Bitter Lacrosse camps and the British Invasion Block Party, to Green Up Day and Wheels for Warmth, our members are there to help.
 
But, our main focus - that of providing significant, much-needed financial resources each year to students in Stowe and throughout Lamoille County, and to non-profit entities throughout the region - is not as well known.  We believe it is time we shared, more fully, our efforts in this regard.
