Northampton Paul Harris Fellows in Attendance
 
As part of a Rotary International focus on protecting the environment, the Northampton Rotary Club worked with the Northampton’s Department of Public Works (DPW), the Urban Forestry Commission, the non-profit Tree Northampton, and the Ice Pond Association to organize a tree planting event on Ice Pond Drive on Saturday, April 20, 2024, planting 12 new trees.

Susan Lofthouse, Vice Chair of the Urban Forestry Commission and a key contact for the project, stated, “Thank you to the Northampton Rotary for your interest in protecting the environment through a partnership with the city! We are thankful for Rotary’s help planting trees at three elementary schools and a residential area in 2022 and 2023, and are very excited to be working with the club again in 2024. The newly planted trees along Ice Pond Drive will replace ash trees destroyed by an Emerald ash borer infestation, and will benefit the community for decades to come.”

April is Volunteer Appreciation month, and we are full of gratitude for all of the volunteer tutors supporting English learners at ILI including Northampton Rotarian Barbara Devlin. On April 2, ILI’s tutor training program, which is supported by a Rotary Foundation District Grant, hosted the sixth of seven trainings for this year. ILI volunteer coordinator Jeanne Barron facilitated the session, which included time for tutors to discuss their tutoring successes and challenges with each other, strategies for helping learners with time-bound questions, an introduction to a photo discussion resource and an exploration of ILI’s resource room. If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering as an English tutor, contact ILI or visit their website www.ILI.edu
