In another year of Corona, RMHS Senior Class Parents and volunteers planted an array of lawn signs with each graduating Senior’s picture and the message “We Love Our Seniors Reading Memorial High School Class of 2021.”  The signs were arranged in front of the Town Hall and Town Hall Annex facing the Reading Common.  The display is sponsored by Reading Rotary.  The set up was spearheaded by Senior parent Mrs. Maria Casarano.  The signs were printed by Boyd’s Direct in Stoneham.
Rotarian Mike Collins, who chaired this project said:  “We are so happy to be able to provide these signs for the Seniors who have faced a lot of adversity this year.  It makes it worth our efforts to see so many people enjoying them.” 
Rotary sponsored a similar display in 2020, in response to the cancellation of many traditionally held events for graduating Seniors.  This year’s Senior Class faced the same or greater pandemic challenges so Rotary again agreed to sponsor the signs as a special remembrance for the soon to be graduates.
The signs will be on display on the lawn in front of the Town Hall.  Students and their families are encouraged to stop by and take a picture with their sign.  (Social distancing and masks when appropriate are respectfully requested.)
Special thanks to all the generous community members who donated to this project.  Within a very short time, over sixty people donated in increments from $10 to $500 to fund fully this project.
Rotary is an international organization dedicated to high ethics and community service.  Rotarians are all volunteers working to contribute to their communities.  Reading Rotary runs the Reading Fall Street Faire and the Snack Shack, supports the Reading Food Pantry, Adopt-a-Family and many local organizations. Rotary’s motto is “Service Above Self.”  Rotary, now more than ever, needs service minded community members to join so that we can continue with projects like this.
