Biddeford Saco Rotary Club Members, 8/9/2020

 

We hope you are doing well!

 

At the August 6, 2020 club’s COVID-19 Subcommittee meeting it was decided that the Subcommittee should send the Club a letter updating everyone about what the subcommittee has been doing. This will be short and hopefully a sweet letter.

 

To begin, Thank You for all your time. You are a volunteer and the Club THANKS YOU for doing what you can.

 

The update: The COVID-19 Subcommittee has been trying to wisely share the funds we have with appropriate organizations in need. Groups that use the additional funding for their clients, to help people truly in need, mainly kids, the elderly and our veterans. We are also doing what we can to support small businesses with unforeseen expenses brought on by this pandemic by buying locally whenever possible.

 

Our Rotary Club has given us $6,045 since this March to spend. 

 

This is what we have done so far with the funds:

  1. Sent grocery store gift cards to the cities of Saco, Biddeford, and OOB for emergency food aid

  2. Provided hand sanitizer and cloth face masks to a veterans home

  3. Allocated funding to Apex Youth Connection to address food insecurity

  4. Contributed funds to Seeds of Hope, a local resource center for the unemployed

  5. Donated to Vet 2 Vet Maine, an organization dedicated to offering companionship and services to veterans

  6. Contributed funds to the Amman Cosmopolitan Rotary Club in Jordan to provide emergency food aid

  7. Provided supplemental funding to a program in Saco dedicated to feeding seniors

In addition we:

  1. Organized a Club food drive

  2. Submitted a grant proposal (which we did not get) and,

  3. Just recently we received a donation of 36 16 oz hand sanitizer bottles, made locally, each of which will proudly display the Club's logo. We are planning to distribute these to local businesses.

At the last meeting we discussed what should be done with the remaining funds. All in attendance felt that an increased focus should be placed on addressing food insecurity in our communities. An idea that was discussed was writing simple how-to educational guides about small space farming and teaching children how to grow vegetables. We added this to our Rotary grant as well as a way to create long lasting influence.

 

When this Subcommittee started there were approximately 16 active members. Presently that number is about 7 people (and understandably so). This letter has two purposes:

  1. Updating you on what we've done to date and

  2. I am hoping to re-spark your interest in helping our Club and Subcommittee work through this crazy COVID-19 time.

We will need help in so many ways. Here are a few areas to consider:

  1. Writing training/educational materials about growing food (anyone with gardening skills?)

  2. Going to locations to distribute food

  3. Painting a food pantry kitchen (August 15th & August 22nd) and

  4. Anything in our community where Rotarians can make a positive impact

We know that as Rotarians we all want to help others and as was stated earlier we are also volunteers. The Club and Subcommittee are trying to find ways that you can make every effort you choose to volunteer for, be of value to you and those we are trying to help.

 

Several of you have expressed your willingness to help but have scheduling conflicts. There are many things that often can be done that help likeminded people, pull off some pretty amazing things that benefit so many.

 

Whatever it is that motivates you to volunteer during these times, is of interest to us. Whatever time you have to volunteer, please call us. Every little bit of time helps someone, somewhere. Please check in with us to see how you can help!

 

Thanks,

 

COVID-19 Subcommittee

Hi All
 
I’ve received a number of responses back from the survey Julie sent out regarding in person meetings or Zoom meetings. The opinion of members leans slightly to continue the Zoom meetings. Although the governor has begun to loosen regulations in the state the data indicates the number of cases has increased and I suspect as vacationers come back to Maine the numbers will increase. Unless anyone strongly objects I suggest we continue Zoom meetings until after Labor Day. 
 
Best
President Don

Donors (so far!) have included the Rotary 7780 District Recovery Fund, and the Rotary Clubs of Biddeford-Saco, Dover, Exeter, Kennebunk, Portsmouth, Rochester, and York.  These contributions were matched by non-Rotary donors to fund the $60,000 in launch costs.   Thirty people will be trained in York, Strafford and Rockingham Counties.
 
Many thanks to all of you, and very best wishes to stay safe and healthy and improve the chances for others to do so as well.

Dear Friends of Pinetree:

I could not be more pleased to share the news that our three-year Master Trainer Initiative is moving forward! Not quite as planned prior to Covid-19, but we will not let that stop our important work - it's needed now more than ever.
 
Dr. Rob Anda and Laura Porter of ACE Interface, two of the leading voices in ACEs awareness and trauma responsiveness, will conduct intensive virtual training sessions for a cohort of 30 Master Trainers. With  support from Pinetree, these Master Trainers will reach thousands of community members. The impact of this initiative will be transformative.
 
Initially planned for two full days of training at the Pinetree Learning Center on September 17th and 18th, the program has been re-designed for a virtual format. To ward off "Zoom Burnout," the trainings will take place online in five-hour sessions over three days: September 17, 18, and 25th. To enhance cohort camaraderie-building, an additional two-hour orientation will take place the week prior, on September 10.

Applications and nominations are OPEN until August 10th to be considered for this rare opportunity to work directly with two of the most prominent leaders in this field. We will fill our cohort with roughly 10 participants from Rockingham, Strafford, and York counties with strong community connections in every sector, including education, health care, recovery, business, and law enforcement. You can find more information about this initiative and Master Trainer requirements here.
 

 
In the meantime, and along the lines of what leaders can do in their communities to make an impact, please enjoy this short video of Dr. Christina Bethel. This video, the second in a series of four, contains a few minutes of bonus material from our interview with Dr. Bethell for our new podcast, Community Connection. In it, she discusses the inequities in our society made stark by the realities of Covid-19. If you missed Episode One: The Power of Positive Experience, you can click here to listen to the podcast or to access the first video.
 

 
We are looking forward to seeing you and Dr. Bethell on October 9, 2020 for the Pinetree Resilience Conference, and to meeting our new Master Trainer cohort in mid- September. Knowing the work continues despite the extra hurdles of the pandemic is deeply gratifying and we can't thank you all enough for your patience and support.
 
Wishing you all the best,
 
 
Larry McCullough. Ed.D.
Executive Director
Pinetree Institute
 
PS – In case you missed it, we are now offering an interactive virtual option for participation in the 2020 Pinetree Conference! Click here for more information. And please don't forget to send us your applications and nominations for the Master Trainer program by August 10!

DATE 8/15 & 22

Please sign up if you are interested. To date 12 have.  Conrad is looking for someone to lead this project.

The Covid-19 Crisis Relief  Subcommittee has found a need for a community service project that will help the Bon Appetit meals program.

 

It will be to paint the kitchen at the 2nd Congregational Church in Biddeford this Summer and we need volunteers  to plan out the program.. We are also asking if any one wants to take on a role of helping to manage  this project.

 

It will take several different days because it will need to be done in sections, first scrape and washing, then painting. Lots of area to paint but not a lot of space to do it.

 

Saturday’s work well for the church and a couple of hours most weekday mornings if they have enough notice. 

 

We encourage all club members to participate and to bring family(spouses) to help.

Brian has sent out an event invitation to gage the number of interested participants.

 

Thanks for you help!

Conrad

 

PS:

 

Hi everyone,

 

I created a Google doc to sign up for re-painting the Bon Appetit kitchen at the Second Congregational Church in Biddeford.

 

Here is the link: 

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1RIhU-wcO3mcSF6DmtM4-LzHW5JJU-twIu0IPJUrb2yI/edit?usp=sharing

 

On August 13th and 14th we'll clean and scrape the old paint; August 15th and 22nd are for re-painting. 

 

It is a fairly large job so any assistance is greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

 

Kaitlin Tito

Happy March 5, 2020. I am writing to let everyone know that the Biddeford Saco Charitable Funds Committee is rising from the ashes like a Phoenix. At Wednesdays BOD meeting it was discussed to bring the committee back. Dennis Elie and I will co-chair the committee. We also have two members, our newest Rotarians- Jane Foley and Melisa Cilley- welcome! The board thought it would be a great way to get new Rotarians and give them a sense of what we do. But wait there is more, ( I love sales folks who keep using that phrase- but wait there is more ). The four of us want you to join us. If you have any interest in being on the committee just send me an email at jmoreshe@psmp.com . I will add you to the list. We plan on sending out our giving guide lines to committee members so they have a road map for giving.
 
It is pretty simple we have a budget that can be from $5,000 to $15,000+++ a year to use in support of our charitable requests. I’ll explain our funding sources at our first meeting. Our charitable request form can be found on our website http://www.biddeford-sacorotary.org/ , located in the top right hand corner of the front page. Check out the website, you can connect with other Rotarians, etc. Most folks will hear about us and get directed to the website to download the application and submit it. We will also regularly get requests from American Lung Association, Alzheimer’s, etc.- all of the big not for profits send appeals to our club.
 
As funds get requested, you will receive an email from the co-chairs that will have the filled out charitable application form,  ( just as an aside- you will see information, SSN’s, discharge papers, etc. This information must remain confidential ),  and any other supporting information. Read the request, do they mesh with our guidelines? Yes / No, not to worry that is what our meetings are for. If we have requests a meeting will be scheduled to follow a regular Wednesday meeting. Our regular meeting ends at 1:30 our committee will meet right after that. As co-chair I will send out a meeting agenda with a copy of all of the requests we will be discussing at least a week in advance. Our meetings usually last 10 to 15 minutes- not very long.  We only meet if we have business to vote on. On occasion there are those emergency requests where the above meeting guidelines will take too long. On those occasions the co-chairs will send out the requests and follow up with email votes, etc.
 
Lastly, as a committee we only have authority to grant a maximum of $500.00 per request. Any requests larger than that will go to the Board of Directors for approval. Please join the committee and see where your money is going. Don’t you know that it is better to give then receive!
 
Yours in Rotary,
PP’s Dennis Elie and Joe Moreshead
 
 
PS:  But wait there is more, I want to see how many people are reading the E-Tack- I have 25% discount on lift tickets at Sunday River- anybody want to go skiing?  
But wait there is more, discounts on food and beverage as well—MMMMMMMMMMM, cinnamon buns at North Peak mid morning!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
To all Tack note takers,
 
As a favor since I am remotely compiling the tack, please shoot me an e-mail once you have taken the notes.  That way I will know who to anticipate sending me the typed up version later on.
 
Please submit your Tack notes to Brian Dallaire at bdallaire@usa.net and with copy to Julie Villemaire at Jvillemaire@maine.rr.com, no later than the Tuesday AM before the next meeting.
 
Thanks
Brian
