The Rotary Club of Hillsborough held their 12th annual Rotary Fair August 13th through the 17th to record breaking crowds despite the inclement weather. This event is a fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Hillsborough Foundation with all proceeds going back to the community.
Mayor Frank DelCore, Committeewoman Gloria McCauley, Committeeman Shawn Lipani and Committeewoman Olivia Holmes were on hand to kick-off the event Tuesday night.
“The Hillsborough Rotary Fair is a tradition that we look forward to,” said Mayor Frank DelCore. “This year, there was record breaking attendance which shows the fair’s popularity in the community.”
The fair included fun activities for the entire family. There were rides, games & prizes, food and a Business Expo. On Friday evening, there was an amazing fireworks display.
Every year, the Rotary Club of Hillsborough dedicates the Saturday afternoon of the Fair strictly for those with special needs, their families and caregivers. For three hours, the Fair was shut down to the general public so these families could enjoy an afternoon together at the Fair without the challenges of large crowds and sensory overload.
“Committeeman Lipani, School Resource Officer Chris Giraldi and new Police Chief Michael McMahon were all good sports to volunteer for dunk-tank duty,” quips Mayor DelCore.
