Meet Hampton and his friend
You’ve heard of Paddington Bear, and Winnie-The-Pooh, but I would like to introduce you to a bear whose adventures and personality will live in your hearts forever. The Rotary Club of Southampton is very pleased to present Hampton Bear, our Ambassador of Goodwill and Good Times!
He has made friends all around the globe, he even helped pilot the Dream Liner to Dubai! He’s been the dapper host of our annual Dinner Auction, pitched in at fish fries, volunteered at our local public school,  Southampton.
Hampton’s one very busy bear, and is an exemplary example of “Service above Self”.
