This week, Rotarians from Ipswich, UK are visiting Ipswich, US as part of a bi-annual friendship exchange program between the clubs which the Brits affectionately refer to as ‘Twinning’.  Following a joint breakfast at the Pancake House on Thursday morning, members from both clubs took time out from the celebrations to pay their respects at the 9-11 Memorial in Rowley.  
Former Rowley pastor, and current Chaplin of both the Rowley Police and Fire Departments, Rev. Robert Hagopian led a brief service of remembrance for those Rowley citizens who died on that fateful day. Reverend Bob also serves as a Hospice Chaplin for Care Dimensions in Danvers.  Select Board Chair and Rotarian Bob Snow described what this Memorial means to him, the citizens of Rowley, and the Ipswich-Rowley Rotary Club. 
Following the remembrance, each participant placed a flower at the Memorial plaque.
