Monday's Board meeting:
A lot covered this week ~
The board decided that the target for returning to live meetings will be mid July (probably the 13th) at the Kittery Community Center. Meetings will be hybrid, so they will be available on zoom. No formal breakfast. There are a lot of details to be worked out, so stay tuned.
The Mitchell School Playground Project, the Board voted to support the Mitchell School Playground project with a $1,000 donation. The installation is scheduled for the end of August and we will try to have Club representation for the volunteer work party.
The Board approved a $1,000 donation toward the purchase of additional sight readers for the Belarus school for the visually impaired children that President Maryna has been working on with the Minsk Rotary Club. The goal at this point is to raise a total of $10,000 to purchase 5 units to augment the 5 thirtyfive year old instruments purchased by Rotarians years ago.
The Board voted to roll $1,000 from this year's service budget to next year's budget to be earmarked for support of the Rice Library renovation.
Next week ~ remember that the meeting is the Club leadership turnover at Maryna's home at 5 pm, please bring snacks to share and your own beverage of choice, the club is supplying catered food. District Governor Peggy Belanger and District Governor Elect Dick Hall are planning on joining us. Spouses/partners are very welcome but give us a heads up so food and seating are prepared.
We are very glad to have the new Kittery Branch Manager, Jackie Krauklin join us today as Samik's guest, welcome Jackie!
Red Cross Blood Drive Thursday June 17, please let Pam know when you can support.
We are honored today to celebrate the Shapleigh School June Student of the Month, Fourth Grader Dylan Apsey. Shapleigh School selects a Student of the Month by Grade, rotating through the grades and rounding out the cycle in June; R.W. Traip Academy selects the Student of the Month by Department, finishing in May with the selection made by the Administration
Dylan was introduced by Teacher Janice Fickett. Ms.Fickett reports that Dylan really took on the challenge of Remote learning, he preservered through the challenges and demonstrated a real love of learning. Dylan turned challenges into compassion, he was a role model for his peers, he was always an active partcipant, and he "came" to class prepared. Dylan is always polite and kind to others. He is multitalented, being a very capable guitar player and fantastic in baseball. His activities over the summer will include sailing camp with his sister, and All-stars baseball. Congratulations to Dylan, his teachers, and to his family.
Eric displayed the Rotary medallion and the Certificate that will be sent to Dylan, his name is already on the Rotary Student of the Month Plaque at Shapleigh School
A book will be donated to the School Library in Dylan's name
2020-2021 Scholarship Recipients:
Addyson Hale Mary Lombardi Allison Maurice
Congratulations to our three $1,000 scholarship recipients! All Summa Cum Laude graduates, they are Traip Academy Co-Valedictorians Addyson Hale and Mary Lombardi, and Allison Maurice. Addy is headed to the University of Georgia and plans to major in Biology with the plan of going pre-Med, Mary is headed to Worcester Polytechnical Institute (Alma Mater of her older brother Joseph and our own Andy Glazier) , majoring in Biomedical Engineering, .Allison is headed to Dickinson College in Carlisle Pa where she will major in Bio-chemistry (and hopefully join their equestrian team). The three have had a great impact on Kittery and their school and we wish them a great college experience. Congratulations, we know they are off to do great things!
Sadly Mary is the third and youngest Lombardi child, we will miss the regular visits of the Lombardis - all three children have put many appearrances in at our meetings over the years. Having Carol and George at our meetings with one of their offspring (and several exchange students they have hosted) has been routine for the last decade - a big Well Done to the entire family and thank you for your very positive impact on the community.
