The Rotary Club of Newton is honored to announce that our own Maureen Grannan was recognized as a "Rotary Service Hero". 
On Monday, March 26th over 250 Rotarians, friends and families gathered to celebrate the 21 Honorees, some of whom are Rotarians and some are community members doing outstanding service work.  Each Service Hero was awarded a Rotary "Paul Harris Award", the organizations highest honor for club and community work. 
Maureen was nominated by Newton Rotary President Susan Peghiny for her work with Newton At Home where she recruits and organizes volunteers to provide simple, yet crucial services to elders in our community (such as transportation to medical appointments, yard work, computer literacy assistance, changing lightbulbs, taking out the trash, installing/removing air conditioners, etc.).   
She has been a member of the Rotary Club of Newton in January 2014 after visiting as a guest speaker.  She has served as the Secretary of our club for 3 years, runs our “Student of the Month” recognition program, is involved in our Rotary Youth Leadership Awards program (RYLA), and serves on the board of our independent foundation (the Newton Rotary Foundation).
