Victor joined the Rotary Club of Bedford (MA) in 2006, becoming a third generation Rotarian following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. He served as its President in 2009 and again in 2014 (for 4 months). He has served numerous roles in District 7910.  In the focus area of service, he has served as District Grant Treasurer (3 years), District Grant Subcommittee Chair (3 years), led a Global Grant for an educational program in Kenya, led a group of Rotarians volunteer for the IDEAS Global Challenge at the MIT PKG Public Service Center (5 years), brought in two major companies to join a multi-club multi-district Rise Against Hunger food-packing project (8 years), and served on Bedford’s Bicycle Safety Day project in conjunction with Bedford Police, purchasing children helmets and fitting them (13 years).  Victor also has a keen interest in mentoring our youth. He has been an instructor at RYLA, established and advises the MIT Rotaract Club, and started the BRIC2 program (Bedford Rotary IDEAS Community Challenge) in which elementary students learn video-editing skills and apply them to generating videos for the Rotary Club and the town and gain public service credit. Victor has also served as the district Bandey-Hefler Fellowship Chair for a Rotary exchange between D7910 and two districts southwest of London (6 years). Victor is a Paul Harris Fellow +6, a Benefactor and a Bequest Society Level 1.
