Rotary's motto is "Service above Self." And we are all wondering how that translates with social distancing as the new norm. In light of the Governor's recent Business Restrictions we have found ways to participate as a Rotarian:
First is that we will be holding all meetings in the near future using Zoom software to meet online. Waterville Sunrise has been invited to join  the Waterville Noon Rotary Club's VOOM meetings. We will be sending invitations to Club Members about Monday VOOM meetings in a separate emails.
Second, if you feel comfortable doing so, please volunteer at something, bearing in mind the need for social distancing.
  • Meals on Wheels still needs help with both packers and drivers.
  • The UU Church is still offering its Evening sandwich program Monday thru Friday 1-5, and could use help preparing the meals (call Larry Dickey at 313-2910).
  • The Homeless Shelter also needs help with donations of some supplies. Check out just what at They will also be grateful for money. 
  • Oakland Cares Program - A meal program to ensure elderly and home bound residents are being fed during the coronavirus pandemic. To order or volunteer call Eric Seekins at the Oakland Town Office 207 465-7357  Check out Oakland launches meal program for more info.
  • On the remarkable volunteering side:
    • Waterville Winslow and Vassalboro school staff and teachers are preparing lunches that are then delivered all around on school buses! 
    • Alfond Youth and Commuity Center is preparing 1000 meals per day for distribution! 
Third: We have asked Kelly Rodrick to continue sharing ways via email on how our club can help.
