In March 2012 he participated in a humanitarian mission to Guatemala for a water project, which changed his Rotary life forever. In 2012-2013 he became President of his Club, from 2013 to 2016 as Assistant Governor, from 2016 to 2019 as Coordinator of the AG-Quebec.

“What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”

For the 12th consecutive year, The Rotary Foundation has received the highest rating — four stars — from Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of charities in the U.S.

The Foundation earned the recognition for demonstrating both strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency. Only one percent of the organizations Charity Navigator evaluates have received 12 consecutive 4-star evaluations.

"Attaining a 4-star rating verifies that The Rotary Foundation exceeds industry standards and outperforms most charities in your area of work", says Michael Thatcher, president and chief executive officer of Charity Navigator. "This exceptional designation sets the Foundation apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness."

The rating reflects Charity Navigator's assessment of how the Foundation uses donations, sustains its programs and services, and practices good governance and openness.

Rockland Fire & EMS, along with the City of Rockland, would like to thank our friends from the Rockland Rotary for their generous financial support.  Rockland Rotary offered to cover the cost of a new refrigerator in order for our department to store and administer the Covid-19 vaccine to first responders in Knox County.  Rotary clubs across the State of Maine were contacted by Maine Emergency Medical Services and asked if they would be willing to financially support fire and EMS departments who would be incurring costs while taking on the fast-moving program.  Rockland Rotary reached out to the Rockland Fire & EMS Department and within 2 weeks they were able to provide the donation.  This is a true sign of community support and we can’t thank them enough for their contribution.  Please see the attached photo from the leadership of the Rockland Rotary (Melissa Bellew and Butch Worcester) donating the $485.00 check to Fire Chief Chris Whytock and City Manager Tom Luttrell.
March is here and what should be a celebration of Spring and St. Patrick's Day , we are dealing with a worldwide virus COVID 19.

Many countries are in a virtual lock-down as we try to curb the spread of the virus. Here in America we are now experiencing some of the same. It has caused panic and fear of the unknown resulting in panic buying when we are told stay in place.  We need to remain calm as the precautions being taken will help slow the spread of the virus.
We live in a global environment and will should expect to see more viruses , but as long as we keep are wits about us, practice cleanliness and continue to clean public places well in the future , hopefully it will reduce exposure.
Our club is open to all Rotarians who need to do a makeup or just want to read about great programs from around the world. Please join us at www.rotaryeclubone.org and click on makeups.
We hope to see you there.  Be safe and wash your hands!
