Hitting the road for a great cause

As part of its ongoing mission to support youth in need across greater Manchester, the Queen City Rotary Club proudly announces the return of a critical fundraiser, The 2021 Road Rally.
 
Saturday, June 5 @ 3:00 p.m.
Brady Sullivan Building (back parking lot area)
1750 Elm Street, Manchester, NH
 
“The Road Rally is a wonderful part of our legacy,” said Leslie Gendron, President, Queen City Rotary Club.  “And as with all of our efforts, 100% of the proceeds directly benefit youth across the community.”
 
The Road Rally is “a scavenger hunt on wheels,” according to event chair Rory Parnell.  “Teams compete against each other to figure out clues and solve puzzles to find their next destination in the quickest time with the most correct answers.  It’s also a neat way to explore greater Manchester and learn about its rich history.”
