Rotary clubs world wide do so much good for mankind. Locally in Maine, or in third world counties, the purpose of serving in Rotary is the same.
The District 7810 Rotary Conference is underway this weekend in Houlton Maine. The location due to the District Governor Leigh Cummings and wife Sandy living in the Shiretown of Aroostook County, Houlton ME.
Last night the Rotary conference kicked off with a concert in the park by McGill’s Band.
Where as a surprise to the director Joe Fagnant, the director of the band was given, presented by the Houlton Rotary Club with a Paul Harris Fellow award. A Paul Harris Fellow award recipient is humbled for being honored, to be recognized for his or her community efforts of “service above self” for others. Here is the McGill’s Band Summer 2012 in the park schedule.
The Four-Way Test of the things we think, say or do.
Is it the truth?
Is it fair to all concerned?
Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
I am proud to be a member of the Rotary International organization and all the neat programs the club has caused to happen in my area and beyond around the planet. This list of projects, events of the Houlton Maine Rotary club show you why membership is so important to me. Have been a member since 1980. Do you belong to a Rotary Club in your area? Consider joining if you don’t. And if you do, I am preaching to the choir on how much more you get back for what you put in.
Maine, it’s about others, service, appreciating all we are lucky for that not everyone else enjoys.
