The Rotary Club of Rochester, New Hampshire recently made a donation of $13,875 to the new Rochester Performance & Arts Center in downtown Rochester. $8,750 of these funds were raised at the Rochester Rotary Pro-Am Fall Classic Golf Tournament last September, while the Rotary Club added an additional $5,000 onto the donation.

“The Rochester Rotary Club is pleased to be supporting the Rochester Performing Arts Center”, said T. J. Jean, President of the Rochester Rotary Club.  “This venue provides our community with valuable opportunities to engage artists and promote the performing arts in Rochester.  Additionally, it shines a bright light into our efforts to revitalize our downtown.  It’s a perfect project for Rotary to support.”

The Rochester Performance & Arts Center held their grand opening this past September and is a not-for-profit arts initiative that combines studio and performance space, an art gallery and arts and educational programming for people of all ages. To learn more, please visit
