This year, Medford High School upcoming seniors Matthew Minchello and Raveena Longia were selected by the Medford Rotary Club to act as ambassadors for the City of Medford in our two week student exchange with Medford's sister city, Nobeoka, Japan.  Shown with Medford Mayor Michael McGlynn and Medford Rotarian David Keane before their travels.  We look forward to hearing about their trip!
 

 
Congratulations to Medford Rotarians Allan Martorana and Jen Sanders (l-r) who were awarded Paul Harris Fellows by the club at our 91st Installation dinner, June 2014.  Sanders is the club's outgoing president and will be an Assistant Governor for Rotary District 7930.  Doug Shoop (far right) was installed as club president for 2014-15.  This is Doug's second time serving as our club president.  Thank you to Century Bank for providing us with an amazing location for our installation of new officers and board.

On Thursday, Feb. 27, Medford Rotary Club members David Keane, President Jen Sanders and Pat Theberge had the opportunity to attend a reception and dinner hosted by the Consul General of Japan, Akira Muto.
The trio was joined by other guests from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Maine, all presenting and discussing their various Sister City/State relationships with Japan.
"It was a great experience. Pat, David and I were very glad to be a part of this event," said Sanders. "We were able to hear what has worked well for these other programs and bring back some ideas to help our own program."
Medford began a Sister City relationship with Nobeoka, Japan in 1980 when then Mayor Paul Donato and Nobeoka’s Mayor Takahiko Hayanari signed a Sister City Declaration.
Donato asked the Medford Rotary Club to take on the task of an International Exchange with Nobeoka. Since then, on the even numbered years, Medford Rotary covers the expenses to send two senior-bound students to Nobeoka for approximately two weeks.
On the odd numbered years, Medford Rotary hosts two students from Nobeoka.
Applications and more information for 2014’s Nobeoka Exchange will be out soon for Medford, senior-bound students who may be interested.
