Plymouth Rotary welcomes new member

PLYMOUTH — The Plymouth NH Rotary Club recently inducted and welcomed Anthony 'Tony' Fitzherbert as its newest member. 

Fitzherbert got to know several of the Plymouth Rotarians when he helped arrange for train rides during the Plymouth 250th celebration. He chaired the special service train ride, an exciting part of the weekend's events, working alongside Co-Chair Paul Montour, historians Anthony Cassarino and Malcolm "Tink" Taylor, and Paul Gilbin of the Hobo Railroad. The Pemigewasset Valley Local took passengers on a short trip between the Senior Center Railroad Platform, to Frosty Scoops at the Common Man Inn, and back while Fitzherbert served as its conductor.

Fitzherbert explains his desire to join the club, "I strongly believe that one should give back to the area where one chooses to live. A Rotary member suggested that I should consider Rotary membership when we worked together during Plymouth's 250th celebration. I observed the group's community service activities with much interest, and have become very impressed! It will be my privilege to participate!"
