The Rotary Clubs of Saco Bay and Biddeford - Saco are pleased to announce their Twenty-Sixth Annual TV Auction in collaboration with Time Warner Cable of Maine.

Over the past 25 years we have raised almost a million dollars that we have used to support nearly fifty community groups and charities. Please see the back of this letter for a listing of some of our club activities and the groups with which we have partnered on projects or supported financially. Your past participation is greatly appreciated and once again, we need your help and continued support to make this another successful Rotary auction. In fact, our goal is to make our 26th auction the biggest ever.
 
We ask that your donated item or gift certificate(s) has a retail value of at least fifty dollars ($50) and we suggest an item that is of interest to a broad segment of the public and represents your business well. The auction will again take place at the J. Richard Martin Community Center in Biddeford. It is an icon within our communities that provides an efficient location in which to run the auction and a convenient place for the people who purchase the auction items to pick them up. The auction is a fast paced, exciting event with very few idle minutes and the space allows the public to see how we do it all. The format for this year will be similar to years past.
 
We hope that you will help us produce another successful auction with your generous donation that allows you to help the community and gain recognition for your business. A Rotarian will be in touch with you soon to talk about your potential participation in this year's auction or to perhaps discuss sponsorship opportunities associated with our auction.

Equal access of education is a basic right for everyone in our communities. Children have the chance to achieve their dreams. Children want to be nurses, technicians, teachers, or farmers when we ask them what they desire to be when they are adults. Basic education is the best investment towards learning essential lifetime skills. It unleashes the potential in children and improves their likelihood of building a healthy and fair society. 
 
Member of our club traveled in April to Nigeria to evaluate the situation in Sauka, after the RC Abuja Metro had broken ground for a new school building in February. Both were pleasantly surprised to see an almost finished school building with six classrooms, a library, a room for the administrator, and a health room. The school building got a roof just before the rain season (see photo). This project requires almost additional $80,000 to complete the school building, furnish the classrooms, provide textbooks, equip the health room, and provide a new borehole as well as a sanitation block for the school. The Global Grant proposal assumes that the RC Abuja Metro will contribute $5,000 while the RC Saco Bay has raised $9,000 until now. Our hope is that more clubs in our District will join us in the chance to change young lives.

If you are civic-minded and genuinely concerned about others less fortunate than yourself you should consider becoming a Rotarian. We meet weekly on Thursday morning at 7:30 AM at Jimmy The Greek's Restaurant in Old Orchard Beach. In addition to the fellowship we enjoy during breakfast, we have programs about community activities, international topics, Rotary's Five Avenues of Service or a topic of particular timely interest.
 
As a member of the Rotary Club of our Club. You just might find the experience "life changing," while determining "what's in it for me!" While "Service Above Self" is our motto and most important feature of Rotary International, we also work together in fellowship as we develop great camaraderie.
