Well worth the effort. When organizations work together within their own avenues and with other groups, things certainly do happen. Old Orchard Beach now has a wheelchair that can bring people across the beach and down to the water. It started with a request and turned into a quest. Our own Jason Webber, Director of the OOB Recreation Dept., spearheaded the effort. He worked at the district level, our club and with others to make this happen. After the grants were written and all the paperwork was done, folks can now enjoy our beach up close and real. The wheelchair was given to the town at a Town Council meeting and was greatly appreciated. It is opportunities like this where we can assist and partner with our communities to make a difference in people's lives.

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. 
Contact Kerstin with any questions you may have at or call 207-807-0367. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

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.
