Unfortunately we have had to CANCEL the Winter Carnival. Due to the recent rise in temps and rain fall we lost the required ice depth that we needed to safely hold the event. Thank You to everyone who was willing to give up their weekend to volunteer. We hope for better luck next year!
Please pass along to any friends and family who were planning on attending.
No club meeting on Wednesday, December 26, 2012. Have a safe and joyous holiday!

Leaders of the Midcoast Rotary Clubs -- Belfast, Camden, Rockland, West Bay (Camden breakfast club) and Midcoast Interact (teenagers) -- recently donated $10,817 to eradicate polio around the world. Most of the funds were raised from the Oct. 22 “End Polio Now” walk sponsored by the five clubs, with more than 100 members participating.
A SIGN-UP SHEET WILL BE AT ROTARY STARTING THIS WEDNESDAY OR YOU CAN E-MAIL ME.
THE COST WILL BE THE SAME AS LAST YEAR.......$35.00 PP
THIS WILL BE A GOOD TIME TO LET YOUR SPOUSE OR YOU RELAX FROM COOKING!
Today is the start of Rotary End Polio Now Week. Through the hard work of many Rotarians, we are fortunate to have the , and to have the National Assembly in Quebec make the proclamation tomorrow. There are many club events this week to raise awareness about our efforts to end Polio, and we will be issuing a press release about them. And the news on our efforts to end Polio is good - the number of new cases is dropping. In India there has only been one new case since January. It would be wonderful if that girl was the last person contract Polio in India.
Finally, Paul Harris points will be doubled for online contributions to Polio Plus today through October 28th.
BELFAST, Maine — Five midcoast Rotary clubs are doing something they’ve never done before: Work together in one huge event spreading from Belfast to Rockland.
The local charitable organizations will hold a “marathon” from noon to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22. They will then throw a party open to the public beginning at 4:30 p.m. at The Whale’s Tooth Pub at Lincolnville Beach.
The goal is to raise money for polio vaccinations to give to children who live in Asian, African and Middle Eastern countries where the disease still exists.
“Nobody wants their children or grandchildren to develop this disease. We’ve eradicated it from the United States, we just have a few places left. We don’t want it to come back,” said one of the event’s organizers, Doug Curtis of Rockland.

Rotary Youth Leadership Awards provides you with an opportunity to sponsor someone in your club or community to “learn the ropes” of leadership. When your club sponsors a RYLA participant, you have the potential to expand membership in your club, gain exposure in your community and contribute to the personal development of a member of your community.
