Funding the new Rotary Club Bandshell

For more than 30 Years, the East Longmeadow Rotary Club, with the support of local businesses and individuals, have presented the community with a series of weekly free outdoor summer concerts.  The Bandshell that supports this, and many other events has deteriorated to the point where the cost of repair no longer makes sense. 
Our members have offered their skills and time to build a new one, and we are seeking your help to cover the cost of labor and materials.  We hope to have this new Bandshell ready for the 2024 Concert Series.
You can send a check made payable to:
East Longmeadow Rotary Foundation Inc., PO Box 571, East Longmeadow, MA 01028
or you can send a contribution to our VENMO or Go Fund Me accounts. Click links below.
Donations are tax deductible.
