On June 25, the Rotary Club of Long Meadows reinstalled Magnus Dahlgren as president of the club. He served as club president in 2010-11, and was elected unanimously to serve another one-year-term for 2012-13.

Dahlgren succeeds Jim Mills, who served as club president in 2011-12.

The club, which meets at Nick’s Airport Inn on Monday evenings, is involved in finding ways to improve the community through fundraising and projects that build the community.

For example, the club provided seed money for the Brook Lane Autism Clinic, which is the first autism clinic in the local area.

Rotary International is a global network of professional men and women who serve locally to build better communities.
