We have begun! The drawings for our 2023 December calendar raffle have begun and 
will continue though out the month. A big thank you to all who donated prizes and 
all who have bought chances!The income from the raffle will fund a major portion of the Clubs service work this year.
50-50 Raffle: Marie had the lucky ticket drawn today and had the chance to draw from a still pretty full deck. There is $165.50 in the Pot!
Nope, not close! So the Pot will grow!
Andy (whose birthday is only a few days away) spilled the beans on another (unannounced) birthday ~ and so we all sang "Happy Birthday" to Shea,
Shea survivied the auditory harm done to her hearing ;-)
2023 Holiday Parade December  2nd
As we have for years, the Rotary Club of Kittery was waiting at the parade's end with free hot cocoa and cookies! Once again, we had very strong support from the very active Traip Interact Club. Many thanks to Aroma Joe's for the use of the thermos's, Subway for their donation of cookies, and 2nd Christian Church for the use of their kitchen to make all the cocoa.

The Community Buoy Tree
December 5, Pam and Andy report that they have contributed a Rotary buoy to the town Buoy Tree. The "tree" is being assembled again this year next to the hardware store to raise funds for the new MainSpring Collabrative. White buoys are purchased by donors and decorated any way they wish and then hung on the tree form.
