 Of the things we think, say or do:
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  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 Information and Announcements

  The tree sale is off and running. in addition to tree's we have wreaths, including decorated wreaths, tree stands, and tree bags. While they last we are handing out $5 coupons to the Portland Players.

Both the South Portland and Cape Elizabeth High School Interact clubs have been helping out. Thank you!

The official Veterans Administration list of needs for homeless veterans who are moving into permanent OR transition housing is here

The complete list makes up one "kit" ... but our effort is just to get as many of each item as possible to donate. The VA will put the items into kits, or provide them singly as needed. 

This is just one of many ways in which our Club is helping Maine's homeless vets. And this is an ongoing effort so your help at any time will really be appreciated. 

The items below, per VA regulations, MUST BE NEW ITEMS, not used.

We nowadays take for granted that Rotary is a well-respected and trusted partner of UNICEF and the CDC in its efforts to eradicate polio. And that level of trust is so high that as John LoBosco pointed out 2 weeks ago, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has chosen to partner with our Rotary Foundation. But 30 years ago public health leaders were very skeptical of both the feasibility of Rotary’s plans to wipe out polio in a country by country campaign, but also of its ability to bring real money to the table.
From Doing Good in the World, the Inspiring Story of the Rotary Foundation’s First 100 Years by David C. Forward
More than 16,000 Rotarians from every continent jammed into the Philadelphia Convention Center on May 24, 1988. While they enjoyed the entertainment and workshops and inspiring speakers, every single attendee had one question on his or her mind: “Did we make it?”
Did you know that if your calendar is from Google, Outlook, or Apple, you can have club or district activities automatically show on your calendar?

It's pretty easy to set up, just go to the club or district calendar and click on the "Subscribe to Calendar" button. Once there you copy the link provided, which will get you a pop up like the picture below. 

They're back!  Clubrunner has released a smartphone application for Rotarians. They are improved, provide more information, and are available for Android and Apple Ios.
