District Governor, Rotary District 7780
District 7780
At District 7780's World Understanding and Peace Dinner held at the Portland Sheraton at Sable Oaks, Rotarian Tony Wagner of the South Portland-Cape Elizabeth Rotary Club was presented with Rotary International's Service Above Self Award. The following is the speech which was given by Past District Governor, John LoBosco . . .
The Service Above Self Award is one of the most prestigious awards in Rotary. Rotary International’s Board of Directors recognizes no more than 150 individuals (out of over 1.2 million Rotarians) to receive this award each year. Nominees must have demonstrated exemplary continuing humanitarian service.
The contributions to the betterment of mankind that our award recipients have made are awe-inspiring. What incredible leadership they have shown; what an example they have set; and what a legacy they have left….
I want to thank our District Governor for nominating a very special person in our district this year – the first Service Above Self recipient we have had in our district in several years.
I have often described this Rotarians as a Rotarian’s Rotarian. He has been a Rotarian for almost 40 years. Last year we honored him as one of the co-Rotarians of the year in our district. This year, I suppose you can say he went from the “All-District” team to “All-World!”
Our Service Above Self Award recipient has helped clubs in every corner of our district with their long-term planning. He was persistent in maintaining enthusiasm and getting clubs involved in the Westbrook-Gorham club’s water project in Guatemala, even when it appeared a grant wasn’t going to come through – and he returned at 10 p.m. last night from an 8-day service project in Guatemala.
He is constantly working to ensure we have enough hands to help the Saco Bay Sunset Club and others from throughout the district wrap and load crutches and other mobility devices en route to Africa where each pair will change a life.
He is the guy climbing around in the trees in Mill Creek Park around Christmas time to get the lights ready for the South Portland – Cape Elizabeth tree sale.
Polio Corner
As District 7780 PolioPlus Chair and an avid polio eradication supporter, I recently  had the pleasure of interviewing our own PRID Michael McGovern, Chair of Rotary’s International PolioPlus Committee. I wanted to hear more about his recent trip as part of a Rotary delegation to Pakistan that included PRIP Ravi Ravindran, Chair-elect for our Rotary Foundation and RI President-elect Holger Knaack. I hope you find the following interesting and informative.
Ann Lee Hussey, Past District 7780 Governor 2010-2011
How did this trip come about?
The trip was Past President Ravi Ravindran’s idea. As the incoming Chair of The Rotary Foundation, he, along with others, was quite concerned that the polio program in Pakistan seemed to be losing ground - momentum had stalled.  There was an increase in the number of polio cases as well as an increase in the number of environmental samples testing positive for the wild poliovirus (WPV). It was evident something needed to be done to reverse the lack of progress.
Past President Ravindran was most intent on meeting with the Head of the Pakistani Army, who in effect is also the Chief of the whole Pakistani military. He is an extremely important part of leadership in Pakistan, serving in a capacity similar to the Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the United States.
Aziz Memon, Chairman of the National Polio Plus Committee, Pakistan, for Rotary International, was instrumental in securing the visit with the Chief of the Pakistan Army.
The military in Pakistan is actively involved with the polio eradication efforts working in the polio reservoir areas as a de facto provider of the program.  They provide security for polio workers in the areas where local government is not functioning. In the border areas between Pakistan and Afghanistan the military along with WHO provide the polio drops. Rotary has established Permanent Transit Posts (PTPs) along the border that are in much need of the security provided by the military.
The military also assists along major roadways helping to stop buses and other vehicles to allow polio workers to access children in transit. The Army Chief of Staff has appointed a staff member who coordinates with the weekly meetings of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC is a central location where representatives from all the partner agencies of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), including Rotary, along with government staff, coordinate data collection. A collaborative sharing of information occurs in real time, allowing the formulation of a joint plan of action to move the eradication efforts forward.
The Chief was most welcoming to our Rotary delegation and indicated he would do anything possible to assist with polio eradication. The Rotary delegation left the meeting with renewed commitment from the Army Chief to the polio efforts.
Rotary Youth Exchange
Rotary Peace Scholarships
District 7780 is active in a Rotary International program which awards 130 fully funded fellowships for peace leaders to attend Rotary Peace Centers. You can be part of this search for a candidate to represent our District. There is no cost to either the club or the District for sponsoring students.
If you know a non-Rotarian who is actively working in the pursuit of peace, encourage them to look at Peace Fellowships at The candidate must have  a minimum of 3 years (36 months) of relevant work experience. Often, the candidates are in their 20’s and 30’s but there is no age restrictions. The candidate does not need to live in our District or our country!
This year, District 7780 has a candidate from El Salvatore who has a law degree and has been active both internationally and in the community in the area of peace. I have not met Mario, but we have been corresponding for several months. I look forward to assisting with this candidate. 
Former Interactors and current or former Rotaractors are eligible and encouraged to apply. The District may sponsor multiple candidates in any year. The application process opens in February, and is closed on May 31. 
The Rotary Peace Centers program began in 2002, and has trained more than 1,300 fellows who now work in more than 115 countries. These fellowships are fully funded, covering tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation and all internship field-study expenses.  
Please keep this program in mind as you meet with people who work for peace.
For more information, go to and look for Peace Fellowships under Our Programs. You can also send me your questions or suggestions regarding candidates.

District History for March 2020
No Responses for February
I have been busy the last couple weeks getting stuff posted to the District History pages. I have posted the list of the club presidents to the individual club pages. There are several clubs I did not get a response from, so they only have club presidents listed since I joined Rotary and have club directories in 1987. If any Rotarians look at their club’s home page and see the dates from the year, they were chartered to 1987 have no names of club presidents and you know them, PLEASE send them to me to update, I would really appreciate it! The longer it goes with out this missing information the more likely it will be lost forever!
I have added New Voices to the list of clubs and the information about how they came about. I have also added Charter Night or Club Anniversary Programs and even a Club History written by a club president to 7 clubs individual pages. I still have a number more to do on several more clubs but they are older clubs with lots of pages to scan and save this information but it will be done – have patience!
I have added two new sections in the left-hand column under Related Information – World Community Service and Rotarians Share. The last one is the start of things you have shared with me as the result of my District History Trivia Questions.  I have posted November 2019, January & February 2020 responses. I will add other ones going backwards as time allows. Will you send me something to be added for March 2020!
To check out the District History pages, go to then click on ABOUT US, then on District History in the drop down.  Then click on anything that is light blue and it will bring up the page.  If you click on Rotary Clubs of District 7780, the list of all 41 clubs in the district will appear.  Just click on the club name you want to look at and see what information there is about that club.
I know there is a lot more information/history out there about our District clubs – WHO WILL SHARE SOMETHING WITH ME IN MARCH, SO I CAN SHARE IT WITH THE DISTRICT!!
PLEASE send me you want to SHARE along with your name and your club’s name to . It will appear in the next newsletter. You will become part of District 7780’s History that will live on and may inspire someone else to share or take on a project in their community or around the world!

The Rotary Club of Bath
The Rotary Club of Bath and Getting Water Right sponsored a workshop to foster communication within the District on WASH challenges. Eight clubs within the District were represented by the 18 attendees. Underlining the importance of WASH in the District, our District Governor, a past DG and an Assistant DG were in attendance.
The program included presentations on:
  • Thorough needs analysis is step number one
  • Holistic approach to clean water challenges
  • How to deal with sedimentation and turbidity
  • Filters and filtration
  • Water testing
At least four clubs in attendance will have returned from WASH missions by mid-April, and will share experiences with the group at our next meeting in April.

The Rotary Club of Damariscotta-Newcastle
Damariscotta-Newcastle Rotarians Marianne Pinkham (Foundation Chairperson), Roberta McLaughlin (President Elect), John Atwood (International Chairperson) and Lorraine Townsend Faherty (President) attended the District 7780 World Peace and Understanding Dinner.
The Damariscotta-Newcastle Maine Club Program Committee, under the leadership of John VanSiclen, supplied a variety of interesting programs. Chip Griffin (Boothbay Harbor Rotarian) taught about the history of Lincoln County in 1820 as part of the Maine State Bicentennial, Larry Sidelinger spoke on the future of LCTV (local public access television) and Brittany Gill informed members about the work and opportunities of CHIP (Community Home Improvement Program) as our club has provided laborers annually for their Work Day. Thanks to all.... always interesting to learn more about our communities.
The Rotary Club of Dover
The Rotary Club of Dover visited with the residents at Bellamy Fields as part of our travels to the many Senior & Resident Communities in Dover. Everyone had so much fun with the “oldie but goodie” trivia questions and being able to pat Rotarian Doug’s dog, River. The residents loved their new Rotary fleece blankets. 
On a Friday afternoon, the club visited with the residents of The Residence at Silver Square in Dover, to share stories of "who we are and where we came from."  It was great to hear the journeys and adventures many of the residents had during their lifetime and how they arrived here in Dover. We played trivia from the 1950’s and 1960’s and learned that they knew the answers much more quickly than we did. As you can see, they loved our gift of warmth with the Rotary fleece blankets. 
Congratulations to Rotarian Betsey Andrews Parker, as she was presented a Paul Harris Fellow Recognition for consistently exemplifying the club’s "Service Above Self" ideals and is always working with a smile and laugh. Betsey is the CEO of Community Action Partnership of Strafford County, and is there for those in our community that need help and assistance everyday.  

The Rotary Club of Dover had the opportunity to attend our District Mid-Year Rotary dinner with our Rotary Leaders, including the District Governor & Past District Governors, Assistant & Past Assistant Governors, District Committee Chairs, Club Presidents, incoming President-Elects and Vice Presidents for our 2020/2021 Rotary year. We look forward to continuing to learn from our club members wants and needs, along from others that have served in past years, along with other Rotarians through our club and district. Our club was also recognized for our club donations to the Rotary Foundation. These donations from our members help to support and fund projects within our local, national and international efforts.


The Kittery After Hours Rotary Club
The Kittery Rotary After Hours Club is gearing up for our annual St. Patrick’s Day Dinner!
Our hope is to bring community members together during the dark days of winter and share fellowship along with a great meal! Dinner includes traditional corned beef and cabbage, potatoes and carrots, bread and rolls and of course dessert. Tickets are available at the door for $12 per person.
This event is a joint effort between the KRAH Club and the Kittery Fire Association. Everyone is on hand to prep, cook, serve, and clean up. This event sold out last year, so we are hopeful for another great showing.
Please bring friends and family and join us for a St. Patrick’s dinner on Sunday, March 15th, from 3:00-6:00 p.m. If you’d like to visit us at a meeting, stop by the Hampton Inn & Suites on Route 1 on Thursdays from 5:00-6:00 pm!
The Rotary Club of Oxford Hills
In honor of Vocational Service Month, the Rotary Club of Oxford Hills had several guest speakers at their Wednesday, 1/22/20 meeting. They asked four local business owners and Oxford Hills’ graduates to share the story of their business, and how they came to stay in the Oxford Hills area. Each speaker gave a brief bio of themselves and their businesses. There were several common themes - be passionate about what you do, commit to the time necessary to be successful, don’t be afraid to take a chance, become part of the community, outreach - show the community you love them and they will love you back, and as a business owner, there is a lot of hard work involved and that one is definitely ‘married’ to it.  It was a great meeting, and several of the guests are now interested in becoming Rotarians!
Pictured L-R: Tina Fox - Rotarian, Dalton Rice - Rice Tree Service, Ryan Ricci - co-owner of 290 Main Street Restaurant, Sheldon Rice - owner of Rice Tree Service, Jarek Mains - owner of Mains Earthwork & Construction, Jasmine Colby - hairstylist from the Mane Room, and Dan Hart - Vocation Service Director
The club is also working on a current ‘Membership Challenge’ to try and increase club membership. The members have been divided into 5 teams, each has a Team Captain and an Assistant Captain. There is a point system designed to encourage members to propose new members, bring them to meetings, schedule fireside chats and eventually induct them. The teams are able to earn points as they progress, but they also can lose points if they don’t continue working the process. The goal is to have 10-15 new members after the 3 month challenge. The winners will be waited on and served breakfast by the losing teams, so the "Fun Factor" is also involved. Stay tuned for results!
The Rotary Clubs of Portland and Yarmouth
Two District #7780 Rotarians, John Curran from the Rotary Club of Portland and Bill Dunn of Yarmouth, recently completed a trip to the Dominican Republic (DR) to provide prosthetic hands. They used a new methodology that combined casting of the residual limb with 3-D printed hand components. This improved the fit, and resulted in 83% of the patients seen, leaving with a device. On this trip, they also participated in the groundbreaking for what will be the first prosthetic clinic in the DR, to be operated by Centro de Protesis. Subsequent to the trip, they and the local Maine coordinator of the 3-D printing, met with 42 students and two instructors at USM Gorham. These students will be researching ways to improve the function of the hands as part of their design classwork.
If your club would like a presentation on the prosthetic hands project, please contact John Curran (Portland Club @ or Bill Dunn (Yarmouth Club @

Portland Rotary appreciation recognition during the ground breaking for a clinic in the Dominican Republic with Portland Rotary Past President John Curran:
This message was sent to the Portland Rotary from La Romana, Dominican Republic during the ground breaking on January 20, 2020, to build a new clinic and in support for the Hearing, Hands and H2O (water) projects.
"It was a wonderful and unforgettable day for our Dominican foundation and no words could possible express how happy we are to be where we are today. We had our clinic's groundbreaking ceremony which was a wonderful event, and we would like to thank each and everyone who joined us, and everyone that have been supporting us since day one. This is the beginning of a dream coming into reality, and a HOPE for amputees and people with special needs in the Dominican Republic. We still have a lot of work ahead of us, and there is no way we can do this without your continued support. We thank our friends, sponsors, and supporters for choosing to make the world a better place."
With gratitude to Portland Rotary Past President John Curran.  Photograph credit to Graviel Nuel Jacobo.
The Rotary Club of Portsmouth
Pictured above left: Former Massachusetts Governor, Patrick Duval.  Above right: Michael Bennett with President-elect Jon Flagg
The New Hampshire Presidential Primary continued to draw several hopefuls as speakers. Colorado Senator Michael Bennett and former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick gave presentations. Both would later withdraw from the race after poor showings in the Granite State.
We mourned the passing of former Club President Mark Kelliher, January 19. A Paul Harris Fellow, he was a prolific volunteer in the Portsmouth community back in the 1980’s. His sister Monica attended the January 23rd meeting with her husband Steve Hamby.
The William Cash Committee donated $2,200 dollars to R.W. Traip Academy’s Project Graduation. Another $6,000 dollars went to Dondero Elementary School to help fund a unique nature playground.
Pictured above: Seacoast Repertory performers
Non-political programs included new Portsmouth City Manager Karen Conard and singing cast members from Seacoast Repertory Theater.
Finally, it’s official. Jon Flagg will be our new president and Justin Finn will serve as president-elect. The club unanimously approved a full slate of officers and directors for 2020-21.
The River Valley Rotary Club
The featured speaker at the River Valley Rotary Club Fellowship Luncheon on Monday, February 3, 2020, was Dean Richmond of Pleasant River Farms in West Bethel. He spoke to Rotary Club members about his food waste collection and composting program.
He offers food scrap collection from businesses and institutions in the Bethel and Newry areas. They pick up food waste and compost it with other organic materials. There is no fee for this service as the towns pay Richmond directly.
Richmond provides 32 gallon totes and accepts all food scrap materials, food manufacturing wastes, and a limited number of paper products, including coffee filters, brown paper towels, brown napkins, and cardboard egg cartons.

The Rotary Club of Sebago Lake
The Sebago Lake Rotary club recently presented Raymond Elementary students and Assistant Principle, Beth Peavy with a check for $1,000. 
The Raymond Elementary students' reading project, the Heifer International Read to Feed campaign, was a challenge created to encourage students to read in exchange for donations designated for Heifer International. HI is an organization that equips communities with sustainable tools, that enables them to provide for themselves. Students donated, along with local businesses, to raise the funds and were able to choose livestock, bees, health kits and/or education opportunities for communities around the world, who are in need of these services. The students met with Assistant Principle, Beth Peavy, and chose to send two girls to school, goats, a trio of rabbits, orders of honeybees, flocks of chicks, clean water, water buffalo, alpaca and a pig, just to name a few. 
Pictured are the top readers in each class with Assistant Principle Peavy and Ingo Hartig, President of the Sebago Lake Rotary Club, who is presenting the check.  Top readers were: 1st grade: Bryson Storey, Maevelyn Armstrong, and Carter St.  Amand.  2nd Grade: Chase Street, Franklin Murray, and Paige Leveille.  3rd Grade: Emma Horowitz, Madelyn Mulkern, and Adalynn Madsen.  4th Grade: Sage Bizier. K: Charlie Martin (female), Ashling Feeney, and Luna Martin. 
Over 850 registrants enjoyed a beautiful weekend on the ice on February 22 & 23. Families, friends and die-hard ice fishermen were out on Sebago Lake and 26 other ponds and lakes in Cumberland County, bringing in over 1200 lbs of togue, pike, perch and pickerel, which was sent to Nova Seafood in Portland to be processed and flash frozen, and then delivered to Preble Street Food Pantry to be served as fish chowder to the hungry.
