Rotary 4 Way Test
 
 Of the things we think, say or do:
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
Thank you for your interest in Rotary and in our South Portland-Cape Elizabeth Club.
We are a diverse group of 60 men and women of all ages and backgrounds who share a commitment to projects both local and international in scope.  Members of the Club have many unique talents and for over 50 years of service we have tackled varied projects including construction of the picnic shelter at Ft. Williams, construction of the skating shelter at Mill Creek Park, restoration and maintenance of Bug Lighthouse, support for the design process of the Children's Garden at Ft Williams, ongoing support for the South Portland Food Cupboard, youth literacy programs, scholarships for SP & CE High Schools and SMCC students. We have provided ongoing funds to help eradicate polio and collected crutches and mobility devices that were sent to Africa Working together on these projects has been rewarding and fun.

We always welcome new members of any age or background who are looking to give back to their community and enjoy good fellowship.  If you are interested in finding out more about Rotary in general and our club in particular, please submit a membership information request.

Club members served lunch to Town of Cape Elizabeth Public Works staff to thank them for all they do - year 'round - to serve our community.
 
 
 
 
 
 
This morning had really nice weather for working at Pope Preserve. 
 
Dan Hogan, who recently spoke to the club, is leading the charge to turn what was a largely forgotten, and overgrown tract into a nice park. Large amounts of Japanese Knotweed had taken over this parcel of protected shoreland.  Dan had succeeded in clearing much of it. Today many community volunteers and about 15 Rotarians joined together to remove the roots so it wouldn't grow back. After the roots were out, milkweed was planted to provide an area attractive to Monarch butterflies.
 
Thanks to Nancy Irving and Nancy Hawes for the supplies to sustain the hard working crew! Coffee, cakes and some really tasty donuts and treats from Little Bigs.
 

 
 

RYLA is Rotary’s Youth Leadership Training Program. RYLA emphasizes leadership, citizenship, personnel growth and service. From June 26 to 29 2016, clubs throughout District 7780 will send up to 120 high school sophomores to Rotary Youth Leadership Awards conference held at Camp Hines in Raymond Maine.  Participants will be assigned to a group of 12 where they will spend 4 days together exploring leadership concepts through a series of practical situations. These include team building activities, group problem solving, confidence building activities and solo events.

 

The deadline has been extended to June 1.
