After 2 years of pandemic, we are gradually returning to normal functioning.
Normal, but certainly different, in that we have had to adapt to more restrictive, changing, ever-changing environments, and that, for most of us, new ways of doing things have been experimented with more or less success.
Unfortunately, these challenges have not been positive for all clubs. Rotary has experienced a significant decline in its global membership, a decline that we are just beginning to compensate for. A reduction in the number of members also means more difficulty in carrying out our actions in the world and locally.
It is not surprising, then, that our president, Jennifer Jones, is asking us to increase our efforts to, first of all, retain our members, and obviously welcome new ones and form new clubs.
The Rotary year 2022-2023 promises to be an "MEMBERSHIP" year. We will therefore work on it together, because:
Together, we see a world where people come together and take action to bring about lasting change in the world, in their communities and in themselves.
Thank you for your efforts, good luck in your projects.
DG Denis Blouin

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!
