Supporting the Service work of the Rotary Club of Kittery


 Time to make donations to The Rotary Foundation, for the 2020-2021 year! Foundation donations make possible Rotary service projects locally and around the globe. Because of the strong overview of the Rotary Foundation and the Rotary Clubs  it is one of the most highly rated non-profits in existence, in management, efficiency, and effectiveness. Give on line or forward your donation to the Club Foundation Chair, Brad Hirst, while funds last the club has budgeted matching funds to double your impact and recognition level. The Club's goal for club & member support for this year is $3,000, we are currently at $1950, we can meet that goal and more!




  Club Assembly -

       The board has voted to donate $500 to the District initiative discussed last week by PDG Dave Underhill to train master trainers in dealing with  Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE's). The donation is made in the name of a family member of one of our club members.



Pam proposed the Club do a road clean-up on the Route 1 Bypass approach to the traffic circle from the south. on Thursday April 22nd (Earth day) at 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm. PDG Jeff Pelkey of the Kittery Rotary Afterhours Club has approved the use of the Pelkey Funeral Home parking lot as a meeting place, the Club consensus was to support and we have invited the KRAH to join us. If you have a high visibility vest, please bring it, the Club has 6.


Maryna and Crystal discussed the current status of the Virtual 5K and the shirts to be provided, at this time we have a number of sponsors and the potential for more. We need to continue to get the word out. After a lengthy discussion of shirt colors and number, Brad moved that Crystal and Maryna have been doing a great job and rather than micro-manage, the club should give them latitude to do what they consider best, Dave G seconded it and the motion got a majority of positive nods. it was noted that the greatest number of shirts being worn was the best advertising for gaining support by participants and sponsors for follow-on events.


President Maryna reported on an invitation for the Club to participate in the May 1st Clean-up of Seapoint beach (Seapoint Beach,the Point, and Crescent Beaches). The event is 9-11 on Saturday May 1st in the same area as the September cleanup we were involved in with several of our family members. The Club members present agreed that we should participate. 


There are still masks available from our Phase III Mask distribution, contact Pam or Andy if you have an organization that could benefit.
