Acting President Pam and Marie        Pauli, and Lisa Gagnon from the Cole Harrison Insurance 

                                                                 Agency talking with a donor.

 Kittery Block Party June 18th!


d        e

We hosted the Traip Interact Club                        Beautiful day, great crowds

f     g

Interact was very organized and very well supported, they ran a build & race  event 

h i

 Advisor Blayne Matty (R)  and some of the very involved Interact Club members, raising money 

for their events and having a lot of fun.We can be proud to support them.


We made another delivery to the Seacoast Fridge Monday (used 3 sheets of Andy's "donation: stickers"), we need other members to take a week  for the rest of this month.



Good Club Business meeting:

   Sue is setting up a probable August 27th CPR Training Course, basic cost $35pp, coordinated with 2nd Christian and possibly KRAH as well.


We will postpone changeover and join KRAH in a fifth meeting of the week social on Wednesday June 29th at When Pigs Fly pizzaria.


Dave is checking out a site for a possible joint club social in August when all the short-term youth exchange students are here.


Acting President Pam laid out her proposal for a "Get To Know Rotary" event in late July. The proposed date is July 27th, Wednesday 5PM - 6:30,, at the Kittery Community Center (hopefully in the room we normally meeting in). We will have handouts and tables where a member can discuss with guests the things we and Rotary at large does in some key areas , such as Environmental, International Service, local community service, the Foundation, and answer membership questions.


Light refreshments would be available. Pam went over ideas on who and how we will invite guests and specific areas where we can broaden our pool of talents and interests. For those who think they might be interested, the idea of encouraging people to become involved with us  for a period before needing to commit to dues and formal membership was proposed.


As incoming President for 2022-2023 Pam proposed that her key words for the event and the year are:Renew, Revitalize, Recharge


As we will see in our end of year wrap-up, - we had another strong year for community and international activity. To keep going we need to broaden our available talent and ideas, and always be open to change to meet the needs of the community and the interests and passion of our members. 


50-50 Raffle:  50% of the pot goes for club administration and 50% goes to the

               lucky individual if raffle ticket is chosen and they select the one joker hidden

               in the ever  decreasing deck of cards. If the joker is not drawn then the pot rolls

               over to the next week.

             There is all of $34.00 in the pot this week and the deck is still very full!

And Sue  (who did the ticket pull this week) got her own ticket! 


Sadly, the photograher missed the dramatically lucky pick as Sue actually pulled the Joker!

Congratulations Sue!

and now we start a new deck!
