Rotary founder Paul Harris said it best when he said "Since the beginning of civilization, there has been a surplus of sayers of things. If there is any one particular way in which I would have Rotary distinguished from other organizations, it is in the quality of character which results in the doing of things." The Victor-Farmington Rotary Club takes this quote to heart. Our club although few in numbers gets things done.

Giving Tree Is Set
On November 22 members of the Victor-Farmington Rotary Club set up the annual Giving Tree at Wade's Market in Farmington. This year marks the 25th year our club has collected Christmas presents for the less fortunate and the senior citizens confined to nursing homes in our area.
Last year we distributed over 1,200 gifts. The tree has become a tradition for local shoppers at the market who are very generous.
All gifts should be returned to Wades by December 14th were Rotarians will collect the gifts for distribution.
