The Rotary Club of Ossipee Valley

GOACC 2020 Business of the Year

On Monday October 26th 2020, The Greater Ossipee Area Chamber of Commerce presented its 2020 Business of the Year award to The Rotary Club of Ossipee Valley.

Under the pretense of being a guest to speak about the Chamber at the Rotary’s weekly meeting held at the River’s Edge Grille and Tavern ; Steven Hoyt( GOACC President), joined by  Ian Macdonald (GOACC BOD), Danielle Owen (GOACC BOD) and Christine Taylor (Chamber Manager/Event Coordinator)  surprised the Rotary Club with an award presentation event.

In 2011 a group of Ossipee Valley folks got together and decided to bring back the local Rotary Club.  Residents from Ossipee, Tamworth, Madison, Effingham and Freedom met weekly to start doing projects around the area.  In 2013, Rotary International chartered the new “Rotary Club of Ossipee Valley”.

The goal of this club’s members is to help to the community in any way they can.  Their community being the Ossipee Valley, the State of NH, the USA and the world.  The members have been a stop for the Tour de Cure, a bike trek across Mass, NH & VT to raise money for diabetes.  They helped install a wheelchair ramp for a local fellow who could not leave a Rehab Center until he had a ramp at his home.  The Club’s repertoire of volunteerism is extensive: They’ve painted a room at the Madison Library, raised money to give every third grader in the area a dictionary and every sixth grader an atlas, purchased and helped distribute bike helmets for the Ossipee Rec Center, contributed to the local Libraries after school programs and a new program in Tamworth geared to teen agers,  have built Little Libraries, and The Club has recognized with a dinner and ceremony a 6th grader from each of the member towns with a Service above Self Award.

In addition to the education services to the younger generation in the valley, the Ossipee Valley Rotary awards students who are pursuing higher education degrees/certifications with scholarships

The Ossipee Valley Rotary Club has donated to the world effort to eradicate Polio. They contribute to Local Food Pantries, assisted a local girl go to camp, they march  in local 4th of July and “old-time” week parades, donated time to Habitat for Humanity, Carroll County Extension , and countless other charities. 

Over the past years, as a Greater Ossipee Area Chamber Member, this Rotary has volunteered its time at the Chamber’s annual golf tournament. The Ossipee Valley Rotary members are the best Hole and One staff.  In addition to being involved directly with the GOACC’s golf tournament, the Rotary has continuously volunteered their expertise with our Non-profit chamber member’s golf tournament fund raisers.

The Rotary’s continuous support of community, even during the most challenging times, is exemplary.

It is an honor for Steven Hoyt (GOACC President) and the GOACC community to present The Rotary Club of Ossipee Valley as the 2020 Business of the Year.
