September

Happy Fall- well officially as of September 22!
Where the heck did summer go? I blinked and we went from July right over to September. However, no complaints. We had a wonderful summer and as a club did amazing things.
  • We ran our final Duck Pluck fundraiser netting over $12,000 to help our communities in the future
  • We scrambled, color-coded spreadsheets, prepped, prepared and fed the riders participating in the 2022 Parkinson’s Ride.
  • We knit, bought socks and contributed to a young Ukrainian student coming to the states. Who happens to have arrived and is doing very well w/ her host family in Gorham.
  • We helped an Esther House resident settle into her first private living arrangement in over 10 years by providing cleaning and basic kitchen supplies and donating many household furnishings.
  • And finally, we bought, bagged, wrapped and will deliver 4 amazing Welcome Baskets to the Esther House as part of our ongoing Rotary Grant later this month.

August

The Dog Days of summer have hit us for sure!

I’m thinking our next meeting song needs to be “We’re having a Heat Wave, a Tropical Heatwave”.  Though lyrics would need to be provided- and maybe we could wear Hawaiian shirts. LOL

Thanks to all you great sports who jumped in with gusto to play Giant Jenga at our recent meeting and to our Sea Dogs attending members. I regret that I was not able to make the game; however, I heard it was a great time!
