Welcome to Rotary District 7780

District Governor: Andrew Glazier


For two months in a row (May and June) District 7780 Rotarians have appeared in the Rotarian magazine. In the May issue, Bob MacKenzie, Kennebunk police chief and member of the Kennebunk Rotary Club was featured in an article entitled, "Rotarians destigmatize Opioid Recovery" on page 14.  In the June 2019 issue, on page 11, The Rotarian magazine interviewed Sanford-Springvale Rotarian PDG Elias Thomas about his decade-long string of catchment dam projects in India. Thanks to both Bob and Elias for their dedicated work, example of Rotarianism in action and bringing our district into the limelight.

"Let’s Go Fly a Kite" at the 2019 RotaryFest

I certainly hope that by now you have Saturday, June 22, 2019 on your calendar. That is when we will gather at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth, Maine to celebrate District Governor John LoBosco’s terrific year as our fabulous leader. Every Rotary District in the world must have an annual District Conference and DG John has decided to make ours a one-day, family-oriented, free, fun day in the park. There will be some traditional Rotary programing but we want this to be something even non-Rotarians visiting the park might be interested in and by participating come to learn more about who we are and what we do. Potential new members, perhaps?

One of the exciting fun activities for kids, and adults who are young at heart, will be kite-flying and building. Not only will the Nor’easters Kite Club be there to fly kites, but they help us build our own for a great Rotary show in the air. Check it out at noreasterkites.org. We hope to have kites flying for the whole day. I have been assured by the Fort Williams staff that there are no Charlie Brown kite-eating-trees on the property. There are many reasons you should be at RotaryFest, which will run from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM. Come anytime and bring family, friends, neighbors, or anyone you might meet on the street. It will be a great day.

On behalf of the University of New Hampshire and St. Joseph’s College Rotaract Clubs, thank you, District 7780 for making the Rotaract trip to Puerto Rico possible.  I’m happy to report that we made our goal of $10,000.00.  I would like to acknowledge the 20 Rotary Clubs and one Interact Club that have made a donation including Dover, Kittery, Kittery After Hours, Portsmouth Interact, Portsmouth, Kennebunk Portside, Rochester, Exeter, Bethel, Bridgton, South Portland Cape Elizabeth, Westbrook Gorham, Brunswick, York, Portland Sunrise, Ogunquit, Hampton, Durham, Oxford Hills, and Fryeburg.
