Each year, the Exeter Rotary Club hosts a fundraiser for the community and focus from the heart to raise funds to offer grants and scholarships to nonprofits and senior students. This is not only provided by the Exeter Rotary but also comes as a result of the generosity of our local businesses and friends, by way of sponsorship, donations and participation. One of the goals is to participate in the Opioid Recovery Initiative, Exeter Rotarians and other Rotary Clubs are committed to working towards reducing the stigma and educating ourselves and the community about the opioid crisis. The mission is “service above self” which is the result from the 9th annual Rotary Holiday Auction.
