     Rotary is an organization of business and professionals and community leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards in all vocations and help build goodwill and peace throughout the world.  There are 1.2 million Rotarians in over 200 countries.
      The Rotary Club of Damariscotta-Newcastle membership of approximately 50 men and women enjoys fellowship and has organized fun activities that raise funds to help those in need, locally and throughout the world.  
      It is our daily actions and our daily decisions, that determine the course of Rotary for us all. As a service club committed to improving our communities, the Damariscotta-Newcastle Rotary participates in hands-on activities, fundraising and projects such as meals for hungry kids, Karl's Kids, scholarships (academic and vocational), literacy, polio eradication, clean water, peace building, etc.
      We encourage new membership; if you are interested, contact any Rotarian and join us early any Tuesday morning for a good breakfast and an interesting program.   Our meetings are open to all visiting Rotarians, guests of Rotarians and future Rotarians are always welcome.

GUEST SPEAKER:

Pam Gormley, Pam was presented with a Rotary check from President Rick in the amount of

$1,500 for the library ready to read project.

Pam then (after some computer reboots) began to make her presentation. I have attached a

link below, so you can see her slides and appreciate all of the information first hand. It was a

very enlightening talk. Thank you, Pam,! Let me know if this file format works! You'll have to

download it to your computer.

The Rotary Club of Damariscotta-Newcastle has supported the Ready To Read Program at Skidompha Library for 10 years.  Our first donation at our first breakfast/meeting at our new venue was to support this local literacy program. And Director Pam Gormley updated us on happenings on our local library which has been serving our communities since 1885.
