Portland Rotary Meets at Hadlock Field on Friday, July 15th at 12pm.
 
 
Plan to join? Please RSVP to Bill Blount at wblount1@gmail.com by Wednesday, July 13th at 12pm. Lunch is $25 payable at the gate.
 
When the Sea Dogs came to town in 1994, under the leadership of Past President John Tewhey (1994-1995) a fundraising celebratory dinner was organized by this club at the Portland Expo with circa 300 attendees. The following year the board of directors agreed to have one of our Friday luncheon meetings at Hadlock Field. Since then going to the Dogs has become a popular yearly event.
 
Our Sea Dogs luncheon has been well attended in the past including last year in the midst of Covid-19. Since this is an outdoor venue, even many of the virus adverse felt safe to attend. It's a perfect opportunity to invite your significant, family of all ages, out of town guests, co-workers or prospective Portland Rotarians to see the club members at our informal best. $25 payable at the gate for the meal served by Sea Dog's staff includes a Sea Dog Biscuit delicious Gifford's ice cream sandwich!
 
Our liaison with the Sea Dogs is former Portland Rotarian and Maine Baseball Hall of Fame inductee John Kamisha. Past President (2007-2008) and Maine Baseball Hall of Fame inductee Ben Lowry will be our Rotary host. Let's make this a great event. We hope to see you there!
 
Do you have a hero? Someone who has made a positive impact in your life, or the lives of others? Perhaps a parent, teacher, coach, veteran, volunteer, first responder, non-profit organization, spouse, or friend?
 
Portland Rotary is giving you the opportunity to publicly honor your hero in a splendid and patriotic manner. From September 9th through September 22nd, Center Court at the Maine Mall will be lined with American flags, each with signage displaying the name of an honored hero.
 
Sponsoring a hero is easy! You can submit a $100 donation online below, or download a sponsor form and mail it with a check to: Portland Rotary, P.O. Box 1755, Portland, ME 04104-1755. 100% of the proceeds from Flags for Heroes will support crucially important charity work happening in nearby communities in Maine, and as far away as Ukraine. For more information please visit the event page.

For decades, over 1.2 million Rotarians have been the leading force behind the eradication of polio through the use of safe and effective vaccines. Our efforts have not only included vaccinating children, but also overcoming the spread of misinformation about the vaccine. Today, wild polio exists only in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and Rotary continues its efforts to completely eliminate this devastating disease. 
 
Because of our deep commitment to service to others, The Rotary Club of Portland, Maine seeks to curb the spread of COVID-19 by supporting access to safe and effective vaccines, combating misinformation, and providing safe spaces to gather without the risk of infection. We support vaccinations but do not require them to attend meetings. We support anyone who chooses to wear a mask but do not require them at our gatherings.  We believe this is a humanitarian effort, just like polio eradication, and not a political one. 
 
Since 1915, members of Portland Rotary have been dedicated to improving the lives of others. We are ordinary people who have used our passion, energy, and talent to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace, to water and health, we are committed to improve the world. We know we are not alone in this effort, and we call upon all other service organizations to join us in helping to eradicate COVID, just as we have with the equally devastating disease of polio.
