'Heart & Sole', or 'H & S' is a 10-week program that promotes physical, emotional, social and intellectual development.
H & S creates a positive, structured space for middle school girls to learn about themselves, explore new ideas, cultivate empathy, strengthen connections and develop skills that will help them as they move through adolescence and beyond. Physical activity is a core element of the program and includes running, strength and conditioning appropriate for this age group. H & S is accessible to all girls regardless of athletic ability or fitness level and considers the range of ages and varied experiences of middle schoolers. The season concludes with a 5K celebratory event that gives the girls a tangible sense of goal setting and achievement.

-The Hanover Rotary Club invites you to our annual Firehouse Pancake Breakfast in support of our international service work. This year’s event will be held on Saturday morning March 26th at the Hanover Fire Station as usual. We are very pleased to be supporting The Zienzele Foundation again this year. A bit about this wonderful local organization:
Since 2000, the Zienzele Foundation has supported AIDS orphans and their caregivers in some of the poorest villages in rural Zimbabwe. We do so through the development of self-sustaining projects run by women’s cooperatives. These cooperatives include goat and chicken raising, sewing, gardening and basket weaving. Our goal is twofold: to empower caregivers to provide for the needs of the children in their care, and to give these vulnerable children access to education through the payment of school fees. To this end, our foundation provides start-up resources and planning support for the caregivers’ cooperatives as they choose a self-sustaining project based on their own skills; we then provide practical support and guidance for the projects, social support for the caregivers, and emotional support for the children in their care.
We will be serving plain and blueberry pancakes, sausage, bacon and real, local maple syrup! The breakfast runs from 7:30am to9:30am. The cost is $5.00 for adults, $3.00 for kids 5 - 16 and under five are free. We hope to see you at this fun community event!
