Rotary Club of the Bridgewaters Honor Long-Time Rotarian Frances Moore Jeffries

The Rotary Club of the Bridgewaters honored long-time Rotarian Frances Moore Jeffries December 10, 2015 at a reception at the Center at Sachem Rock, East Bridgewater.  This was made possible by the grand sponsorship of North Easton Savings Bank.

Seventy-five enthusiastic supporters attended the event which provided testimony to Ms. Jeffries’ long and distinguished careers as a teacher, college and grants administrator, advocate for literacy and peace, and Rotary volunteer, as well as her most recent achievement of being selected for the Rotary Peace Scholars Professional Development Certificate program in Thailand this coming January through March.


Speaking on behalf of Jeffries’ many and varied contributions to literacy and peace were:  President Frederick Clark, Jr., of Bridgewater State University; Professor Vernon Domingo also of Bridgewater State University; Past Rotary District Governor and local club member Eldon “Terry” Humfryes; Herb Mansfield of the Rotary Club of Wakefield, Rhode Island; Dr. Edward Meaney of the Rotary Club of the Bridgewaters; and Beth Roll Smith, also of the Rotary Club of the Bridgewaters.  Rotary District Governor Kristine Musco David, along with club president Jim Alfieri, presented Jeffries with a Rotary Humanitarian Award.


A special presentation was made by Joan Gay, who graduated from
Lake Erie College with Ms. Jeffries.
The Rotary Club of the Bridgewaters, devoted to “Service Above Self,” meets most Wednesdays for breakfast at 7:15 a.m. at Good Days Restaurant, West Bridgewater.  All are welcome; no reservations are required.
