Fred Clark was guest speaker at the July 28th meeting. He presented information on the Care to Share Community Center to be located in Carlingford. Fred started the Care to Share project fourteen years ago and has almost single-handedly made it into a valuable community service, providing donated appliances, clothing and household items to needy families at no cost. Work is expected to begin on the Center in September with the help of volunteers. The estimated cost of the building is $200000.
Perth-Andover Rotary Club volunteers recently weeded and spruced up the Andover Elementary Community Garden.
Rotarians Barb Green, Rhonda Kennedy, Nancy Hanscome and her grandson, Marianne Bell and her daughter Victoria, Louiselle St. Amand, John Larsen and Margie Brooks worked hard and at the same time had fun improving the appearance of the Garden.
The Perth-Andover Rotary Club and the Fort Fairfield Rotary Club held their combined Annual Meeting at the Aroostook Valley Country Club on June 26. It was an enjoyable time of fellowship, good food and awards. DG Pat Perry joined us for the celebration. The two clubs from two countries have been holding their annual meetings together for several years, which we believe is rare in the world of Rotary.

The Club invited families & attendees of Camp Rotary to a dinner and presented a contribution of $6,950 to Easter Seals EO Julia Laitham. Some of the attendees were at Camp and unable to attend the dinner.
This is the largest contribution we have ever been able to make. There are many communities and businesses that made this possible by supporting our Annual Dinner & Auction and our Raffle Calendars.
