On April 29, 2015, Jessie Davis, Office Manager from the Strand Theatre, presented a most interesting talk on her swim from Lincolnville to Islesboro in support of LifeFlight of Maine.

The Islesboro Crossing is an annual open water swimming fundraiser for LifeFlight of Maine. 3.1 miles across the Lincolnville to Islesboro held annually in late August.

In 2013, its first year, the Islesboro Crossing welcomed 30+  participants and raised $19,500. In 2014, 50+ swimmers participated and  the crossing raised $120,000. Saturday, August 29th, 2015
at 7a.m. they  will be doing it again. LifeFlight is currently comprised of two twin  engine Agusta 109E helicopters, capable of traveling 165mph, stationed  in Bangor and Lewiston. They transport and treat1500+
patients/year --  80% hospital to trauma center and 20% on scene calls. Since its inception in 1998 LifeFlight has transported 18,000+ patients. Inspired by LifeFlight and the incredible effort it takes to provide emergency medical care to rural and remote parts of Maine, Rockland resident  Jessie Davis decided to swim to Islesboro to raise money for  LifeFlight. After discussing the details of her endeavor with the folks at the LifeFlight
Foundation, they decided to broaden the event and  invite additional swimmers to participate. Thus, the Islesboro Crossing  was born. Swim to help LifeFlight fulfill their promise to be there for  all Mainers in their time
of need. "I want to make sure LifeFlight's services are available to my family, friends, neighbors, and community  when they need it - so that somebody's worst day doesn't have to be  their last." The need for
LifeFlight's services is so great that they are currently raising money to purchase and outfit a third helicopter  and a fixed winged aircraft. To participate as a swimmer, kayaker,  volunteer or to donate to the 2015
Islesboro Crossing please visit  www.lifeflightmaine.org  or call 207-230-7092
 
Help us reach  our $100k goal.

If you would like to hear more interesting speakers like Jessie Davis, please visit the Rockland Rotary at the Samoset Resort every Wednesday from 12:15pm to 1:15pm and enjoy a complimentary luncheon. For more information contact Doris Vertz at: dvertz1@gwi.net.

Rev. Paul Marshall spoke to the Rockland Rotary members recounting his involvement in establishing and building a high school in Micronesia in the early 1960’s.  Rev. Marshall began his presentation with a re-cap of this earlier experience in WWII when he was a medic in the Army with the 104th Infantry Division called the Timberwolves.   Returning to Maine after the war, Rev. Marshall worked for the U.S. Forest Service, obtained a degree in Math and Science and later was contacted by a Mission Board to become a missionary in Micronesia.

It was a pleasure to invite Rev. Paul Marshall to speak to the Rockland Rotary members recounting his WWII memories.  It is hard to believe that Rev. Marshall is 90 years old.  He says he is going on to 100 with God’s help.  His introduction to the book he authored titled, Maine Boy Goes to War, was to tell others that they also have a story that is important for people to hear.

Our President, Amie Hutchison, addressed the ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) Association’s marketing strategy of pouring ice water over her head for a donation of $100 to ALS.  A challenge was made to three other members to have ice water poured over their heads for a donation.  President Bush (43) performed the same challenge for the ALS Association.

Today is the start of Rotary End Polio Now Week.  Through the hard work of many Rotarians, we are fortunate to have the , and to have the National Assembly in Quebec make the proclamation tomorrow.  There are many club events this week to raise awareness about our efforts to end Polio, and we will be issuing a press release about them.  And the news on our efforts to end Polio is good  -  the number of new cases is dropping.  In India there has only been one new case since January.  It would be wonderful if that girl was the last person contract Polio in India.

 Finally, Paul Harris points will be doubled for online contributions to Polio Plus today through October 28th.

BELFAST, Maine — Five midcoast Rotary clubs are doing something they’ve never done before: Work together in one huge event spreading from Belfast to Rockland.

The local charitable organizations will hold a “marathon” from noon to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22. They will then throw a party open to the public beginning at 4:30 p.m. at The Whale’s Tooth Pub at Lincolnville Beach.

The goal is to raise money for polio vaccinations to give to children who live in Asian, African and Middle Eastern countries where the disease still exists.

“Nobody wants their children or grandchildren to develop this disease. We’ve eradicated it from the United States, we just have a few places left. We don’t want it to come back,” said one of the event’s organizers, Doug Curtis of Rockland.

Reminder: The Rotary Leadership Institute will be offered in our district on Saturday, October 22 at Lewiston – Auburn College!

This program seeks to strengthen Rotary club leadership through quality, engaging education in both leadership skills and Rotary knowledge.
It is hoped that these courses  will also motivate the participants to be enthusiastic, creative and  dedicated Rotarians. This is an outstanding opportunity for each club to improve  the Rotary knowledge of its key people, who will also be exposed to  new ideas of leadership. The exchange of ideas with other experienced  Rotarians alone makes the courses worthwhile.
