Ipswich-Rowley Rotary is happy to announce that John Herth of Rowley has joined our club, joining his wife Diane who sits on our Board of Directors.  Before moving to Rowley in 2020, John was a member of the Cohasset Rotary Club. 

While a member of the Cohasset club, John’s primary focus was in heading up the course setup and breakdown for the ‘Cohasset Road Race by the Sea’, an annual fundraising event that attracted over 1000 runners.  In Ipswich, he regularly delivers free meals to struggling families as part of our club’s quarterly ‘Ipswich Dinner Bell’ service.

John has been and continues to be an active church leader.  For several years while in Cohasset, he cooked meals monthly for a church project that prepares and freezes food for distribution to those in need on the South Shore.  He also has served as a Trustee for his condo associations in both Cohasset and Rowley.   

A registered architect, John worked in food service design and construction for Panera Bread and Dunkin Brands for over 28 years.  More recently, he started his own consulting firm and presently advises Subway restaurants.  In his free time, John stays fit by actively pursuing his passions for golf, home renovation, boat restoration, cycling, Pickleball, running, and walking.

The Ipswich-Rowley Rotary Club is thrilled to welcome John; we know that his skills and passions will fit very well with our core missions of service and environmental sustainability.  Please join John and Diane and help us improve lives in our communities.  Together we will achieve more than we can alone.
