The Rotary Club of Burlington recently installed Ethan Solomon as its president for the coming year. Since 2009, Solomon has worked in the Burlington office of the law firm of Reimer & Braunstein as a land-use planner focused on permitting and real estate development. In a statement, Solomon, a Newton resident, said he was excited about being chosen as the club’s president. “Our club represents a real cross-section of Burlington, including local officials, business leaders and community members collaborating to make positive and tangible changes to the community where we work and live, while having a lot of fun in the process.” The 55-year-old club’s charitable work includes awarding college scholarships to graduating high school students and providing financial and volunteer support for the Burlington Community Food Pantry. It also sponsors an Interact Club at the high school, in which students engage in civic work, an annual Valentine’s Day dance for senior citizens, and a program that provides a dictionary to each third-grade student in the Burlington public schools.
