Wrap-A-Smile
PROJECT COMES FULL CIRCLE
 
 
Pictured left to right:  Ann Demeranville and Terry Hodskins Fullam
 
Terry Hodskins Fullam, accompanied by Cathy and Lee Hansen of the Wells club, visited the Boothbay Harbor club in June to present a generous donation to Wrap-A-Smile.
 
When Terry first started this project of providing comfort quilts to children undergoing cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, the BBH club was an early contributor.  As Terry told the story, BBH had no quilters in their club, but offered funds which were used for early set-up costs and a fabric buying spree for her quilting group. Wrap-A-Smile now belongs to our whole district but is managed by Ann Demeranville of the BBH club, with the BBH Rotary clubhouse being a community resource for Quiltathons as well as packing parties to prepare quilts for shipping. 
 
As Terry presented the check to Wrap-A-Smile, the same amount that BBH had contributed 18 years ago, she jokingly stated "here's your money back."  She also presented Ann with a quilt she had made, her second one (ever) for the project.  
 
Lee Hansen then spoke about the passion that the Wells club has felt for this project over the years, and ended by presenting a stack of quilts made by quilters from southern Maine.
 
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.
