Thursday, January 30, 2020 was our last day at the Town Club. President Diane presented a plaque to Tammy for 10 years of "Above and Beyond" service to our club. Please be sure to meet with us next Thursday, February 6 at the Little Theater at Nasson Community Center, 475 Main St., Springvale at 7:30 a.m.  Ample parking is available in back of the center.

Next Thursday, January 30th, will be our last meeting at the Town Club.  

After ten years of being able to hold our weekly meetings at the Sanford Town Club – having begun a long history with the Town Club, since 1931, it is with regret that we find it necessary to begin a new chapter in a different location.  Beginning on February 6, 2020, the Rotary Club of Sanford-Springvale will be holding its meetings at Nasson Little Theater every Thursday morning, from 7:00 until 8:30 a.m.

We wish to thank Gina Sawtelle and the staff of ABOVE AND BEYOND CATERING for the outstanding service they have provided to our Club over the past ten years.

There has been some progress in terms of resolving the elevator situation at the Town Club. At our club meeting on Thursday, September 19th, Gina Sawtelle gave us an update. As a result, the club voted to return to the Town Club starting next Thursday morning, September 26th. Since the elevator problems are not completely resolved yet, there are a few things to be aware of -
If the elevator is not working and we have enough notice, the meeting will be held at the North Parish Church hall (downstairs, parking in the rear of the church), 895 Main St., Sanford.
If the elevator is not working and we have little or no notice, we will meet at the Town Club and will have to use the stairs.
Until the elevator situation is completely resolved, emails will be sent out prior to each meeting so that you know where we will be. Please check your email before coming to the meeting on Thursday morning. Thanks for your patience and understanding as we work through all of this.
They are delicious, hot and tasty and fresh off the grill. Time to get your annual fix of chicken livers at the Rotary Booth at the Acton Fair. (If you hate liver, there is wonderful Shaker Pond Ice Cream next door at the Rotary Youth Ice Cream Booth). Don't miss out!
Our Rotarians (and young helpers) busy serving Mamma Mia dinners on Friday evenings at York County Shelters.
Please be sure to open your June Rotarian magazine to read this article about Elias and his India catchment dam work on page 11. We are so proud of your work and the fact that you are a member of our club.
Our club awarded 11 scholarships to students from Sanford and Massabesic High Schools for a total of $14,000. Parents and recipients enjoyed breakfast and the presentation of scholarships conducted by the Scholarship Committee.
As Elias Thomas put it during the Foundation moment on Thursday morning, Rotary is indeed the connector that brings individuals together to do good work, whether it is the Michigan sock guy, (PDG classmate of Elias' from 20 years ago) donating hundreds of pairs of socks recently or the international "dream team" that will construct another catchment dam in India in a few weeks. RI is the connector that makes good things happen.
Elias presented a check for $10,000 from the National Association of Realtors "Good Neighbor Award" to President John. The monies will be used to fund future water catchment dam projects in India.
Sanford-Springvale Rotarian Elias Thomas was recently chosen to receive the National Association of Realtors "Good Neighbor Award" which is a program that honors realtors who make an extraordinary impact though volunteer work. Elias is one of five realtors chosen from hundreds of nominations throughout the U.S. As a winner, the NAR will donate $10,000 to the charity of Elias' choice which will, of course, be Rotary International. These monies will be used to fund future global grants - building catchment dams in water-starved sections of Rajasthan, India. Elias has organized and led global grant projects in India annually since 2001. To see his full story in REALTOR magazine, click here.
Allen Lampert and Gwen Bedell took these Rotarians on a tour of the almost-finished new Sanford High School. So impressive!
