Join us to hear morning radio personality, Ray Richardson speak about his third and latest book, “Every Stone Has A Story”. The book gives you a glimpse into the organization, Wreaths Across America and Ray tells some of the amazing stories that give their mission meaning. Don’t miss this great American story.
Wreaths Across America, Thursday evening, November 30, 2017 at 5:30 P.M. at the Town Club in Sanford, Maine
 
Special guests DG Dave Underhill, District Foundation Chair, Marty Helman and PDG Marge Barker were on hand to present Paul Harris Fellowships to Mark Mickeriz (for his super work as our club Foundation Chair over the years) and to Kim LaChance. Kim's parents, Tom and Judy Jagger honored Kim with the PHF. Our club also received the RI President's Citation for 2016-2017 from PDG Marge. We were one of only two clubs in our district to receive the award for our work together last year. 
Rotarians and friends packaged enough Mac & Cheese to feed 12,600 hungry people in York County, Maine. 
 
Our program for this Thursday morning will be to build several of these Little Free Libraries from pre-cut kits. Please bring battery powered screw drivers or Phillips screw drivers if you'd like to help assemble the kits. Should be fun!
It was an early morning, but some members and family of the Sanford-Springvale Rotary Club managed to plant over 670 plants in the rain garden at the Autism/Therapy wing at the Fraser-Ford Child Development Center at Waban Projects. 14 people planted and mulched the 8' by approximately 100' rain garden. It was a fun project, making a difference!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Our club's second LFL was dedicated on Thursday, August 10th by President Danielle and Shawn Babine. It is a old newspaper box that was generously donated by the Journal Tribune newspaper and renovated and decorated by the Treadwell family. It is located in Holdsworth Park and will provide reading materials for people visiting the rec area. The LFL already had its first customer that morning!
District Governor Dave Underhill's official visit to our club was busy!

Our first Little Free Library (LFL) was dedicated on Monday, June 26th at East Side Acres on Bates St. in Sanford. Kids from the neighborhood did a marvelous job painting the LFL which was constructed by Sanford Rotarian, Neal Meltzer. Shawn Babine (literacy chair), Barbara Sutcliffe (president), Lawrence Furbish (community service chair) Jackie McDougal (Goodall Library director) and Bill Keefer (Sanford Housing Authority director) participated in the dedication. Rotary and the Goodall Library are planning to build and place more LFLs in the Sanford area. Keep an eye out for one in your neighborhood!
