The club members thank Bob for all his efforts in leading our club through a very successful and productive 2023-2024 Rotary year.

Richard is a local sculptor and long-time Lobster Festival volunteer. He is working to recreate a bronze King Neptune statue destroyed by recent winter storms. His goal is to include two mermaids to the final sculpture. If you'd like to support this local project, check out the Neptune Returns - Me Lobster Fest gofundme campaign to make donations. The final home for the sculpture is yet to be determined, but it will most likely be somewhere around the Rockland Harbor where locals and visitors can enjoy this unique and magnificent piece of local art.

Rockland Rotarians, Doug and Ferolyn Curtis, Jr., had the opportunity to attend the Rotary Club Marbella while vacationing in the Costa del Sol region of Spain.  During this particular meeting, a new Rotarian was being inducted into their club.  It was interesting learning the differences in their induction process.  In order to become a new member, the candidate has to deliver their classification speech and field questions from the club's members before being approved and inducted.  In turn, the Marbella members were very interested in learning about the process our club uses to induct new members.  It's amazing how Rotarians, from all over the world, make you feel welcome and at home in their respective clubs.
The Rockland Rotary Club, in partnership with The Bass Federation of Maine, held its 14th Annual Fishing Tournament at Damariscotta Lake, Sunday, April 29th. Thanks to all the generous support from sponsors, boaters, and participants, this was another successful fundraising event that helps provide Benefaction Grants to community non-profit organizations. 
 
Rockland Rotary is fortunate to have Elba-Gloria Rangel-Erazo inducted as their newest member.  EG not only brings her professional skills as a software consultant, but also brings artistic talents and endless energy.  Her commitment to Community Above Service is evident by her eagerness to join numerous committees and participate in club events.  Welcome EG!!

In 2022, Rockland Rotary received approval from the Rockland City Council to fundraise for an All-Inclusive playground to be placed at MacDougal Park, on Broadway.  April 1st, the Rockland City Council voted unanimously to accept Rockland Rotary's All-Inclusive Playground gift.  The project fundraising is in its final stages of reaching their $200,000 goal.  Once the fundraising is complete, the playground will be ordered and a community build can proceed.  On completion, the city will take over ownership and future maintenance of the playground.
Rockland Rotary participated in the annual Community Expo at the Samoset Resort to network with local businesses, organizations, and community members. Rockland Rotarians had the opportunity to promote Rotary’s humanitarian work. 
They also had the opportunity to share the exciting progress being made with our Centennial All-Inclusive Playground project that will be located at the MacDougal Park in the very near future!
Sincere thanks go out to the following Rockland Rotarians who helped make this fun day such a great success: Gene Reil, Lexi Zable, Kristin Brown, Kermit Voncannon, Mike Flanagan, Butch & Carol Worcester, Adreth Rackliff, and Ferolyn Curtis.

Our Rockland Rotary Club had a successful 2-day Holiday Sale over the weekend of December 16th & 17th.  Over 17 Rotarians, plus friends, and family members, donated many hours of personal time setting up and working this event. Thank you! Our club would also like to thank the Ash Point Community School for the use of their gym and the community for purchasing items which supported our efforts in raising money for our "All Aboard" Playground Project to benefit all children, especially those with physical/emotional challenges.

Each Rotary leader shared what their respective club is doing for fundraising, projects they have participated in, and the different ways they are helping our communities.  We thank Rockland President-elect, Mike Flanagan, for spearheading this social event and organizing a delicious meal for the 45 local Rotarians who gathered for this evening of fellowship.
Rockland Rotarians had a jolly good time participating in Rockland's annual Festival of Lights parade, to kick off the Holiday Season.  With exceptional teamwork, Rotarians decorated our Rotary float in the shelter of Eric's garage, along with Kermit and the group who marched in the parade.  Butch and his co-pilot, Carol, drove the truck.  Emily was our "Mrs. Claus," who engaged the crowd. Kristin, Mike F. and Ferolyn were red-nosed reindeer, and Mike C. pushed his daughter, "Snow Princess," Evie, in a sleigh created by Stephanie McLain.  President Bob and Kip joined in the march up Main St.  The floats were spectacular and crowds of people lined the length of downtown Rockland, despite the freezing 26 degree temperatures.
Rockland Rotarians generously gave monetary donations to purchase turkeys, ham, hamburger, and other food to help fill-up the Hospitality House Family Shelter's freezers and pantry.  Rotarian, Lexi Zable, obtained a list of items the shelter needed. Then she went on a massive shopping spree and delivered the food to the shelter in time for the holidays. 
 
Rockland Rotary President, Bob Bird, presents our District Governor, Tina Chapman, with a check for $1,500 to go toward her District Project to decrease chronic childhood malnutrition in two villages in the Highlands of Guatemala. "Chronic childhood malnutrition is a complex problem that requires a wide range of interventions. Many efforts to reduce chronic childhood malnutrition in Guatemala address only one or a few of the interrelated causes. In this project we will address all of the causes identified in two communities and have identified 33 necessary malnutrition interventions. Such an integrated approach in neighboring villages has been shown to have a much more dramatic impact of reducing chronic childhood malnutrition than projects using just a handful of interventions. The project will be based on a community empowerment approach to ensure that the changes brought about by the project continue after Rotarians leave." (DGE Tina Chapman's District Governor's Project shared by Deb Walters)
Rockland Rotary partnered with WindowDressers to keep our neighbors in Maine warm this winter.  There will be approximately 75 Rotarians taking part in this project from Ellsworth, Castine, Hallowell, Rockland/Camden, Belfast, Calais, Waterville and Winthrop.  For every shift a Rotarian works, our district will make a donation of at least $100 to the WindowDressers program from our Rotary District 7790, which includes most of Maine and Quebec. This effort is part of Past-District Governor, Doug Curtis, Jr's, District Environmental Project.  As Rotarians, it's our mission to do good in the world.
