This Week: Thursday Night Club Social
 
This Thursday 5/25 is our monthly club social, but we first like to do a bit of community service! At 3:30pm, please join us at The Locker Project, 111 Wescott Street, South Portland. The task is stuffing purple bags with snacks that go to area school programs/community centers. It's a quick hour, and then we can head over to Rising Tide Brewing Company, 103 Fox Street, Portland, for good cheer and fellowship starting at 5pm. Everyone is invited to one or both!

May 7, 2023: Award-winning, Singer-Songwriter Don Campbell held a concert in Portland's Deering Oaks Park to raise awareness about the FENTANYL CRISIS in Maine. The event was co-sponsored by the City of Portland and the Portland Rotary Club. Public health partners and opioid support organizations were on site to provide education and tools, including fentanyl test strips and Narcan.
 
Brenda Cressey, the District's Foundation Fund Development Chair, officially recognized members of Portland's PolioPlus Society at a club meeting on November 11, 2022. Members of the Society understand that as long as a single child remains infected, children in all countries are at risk of contracting polio. They've committed to donate $100 or more each year and pledge to do so until polio is completely eradicated.
1st Annual Bridge the Gap to End Polio a Great Success!
 
Wearing bright red End Polio Now tee-shirts and hoodies and carrying banners, seventy Rotarians with friends and family lined the Casco Bay Bridge from Portland to South Portland on Thursday, October 20th to raise awareness of Rotary‚Äôs worldwide effort to eradicate polio. Our first annual Bridge the Gap to End Polio bridge walk ended at the Sea Dog Brewery, for a Pints for Polio fundraiser.
 
We were joined by District Governor Claudia Frost and members of the Rotary Clubs of South Portland-Cape Elizabeth, Bath-Sunrise, Freeport, Ogunquit, Westbrook-Gorham, Falmouth, and Brunswick.  
 
It was an afternoon of raising awareness and funds for PolioPlus, and a time for fun and fellowship for the eight community Rotary Clubs. By all accounts, our first annual Bridge Walk was a big success!
