Stories
With temperatures in the mid 20's, Bath Rotarians and friends bundled up and scaled ladders to wrap downtown lampposts with lights for the upcoming holidays. Thanks to Assistant City Manager Marc Meyers for expert guidance on how to decorate the posts and to the Morse High School SLSC for their help.
A new message from Rich Cromwell:
 
Dear Friends and Sponsors of CIO, 

I am not sure if you get the GFM updates or FB postings so I thought I would send this to you.
 
In the last couple months we have received  pledges and donations which will make it possible for the new Learning Center to be constructed and we hope to break ground in the second week of August. 
 
Just the other day I was perusing the names of the nearly 400 generous people who have donated to the CIO children by supporting the Orphanage Construction Project and Learning Center Project. There were many big donors like Sarah, Chrissy, Neville, the Bath Rotary Club and others.  But just as important were the dozens of people who donated $5, $10 or $25 dollars. In addition, we have over 60 sponsors who help the kids each month.  It shows the kind and trusting nature of human beings when they are willing to take a few dollars from their income to help children half way around the world.  One such donor is Jim, a WWII vet confined to a nursing home who has generously donated twice to the CIO Building Project from his meager pension.  
 
This has been an amazing uplifting experience.
 
As we move into the final phase of construction, our focus turns to ensuring the long-term well-being of the CIO Organization and the children.  Many of you know that along with building the orphanage we have been working to ensure each child is sponsored.  These sponsorships help to offset the cost of food, shelter, medical expenses and education.  If you would like to be a sponsor or a back-up sponsor for one of our CIO children please contact Janis in Australia (jlindblom@optusnet.com.au) or Alison in Australia (mail@aliz.com.au) or Rich in the USA and Europe (richcromwell1@gmail.com). We currently need sponsors for Tola, Theara and Thai.
 
We sincerely thank those who have donated large and small not only for your donation but also for your confidence in the CIO team.
 
Thank you.
 
Rich

The Bath Rotary Club was busy in February with two events. The month started with a Fill-A-Bus Food Drive on Saturday, February 4, the day before the Super Bowl, at Shaw's Supermarket. With assistance from the Bath Sunrise Rotary and the Morse Interact Club and generous donations of the bus from Bath Bus Service and 3 shopping carts full of food from Shaw's, the event collected 1840 lbs. of food and raised $375 for the Bath Area Food Bank.

Another event, organized by the Morse Interact Club, was the Lunch For Leaders sandwich drive on February 10th. With assistance from the Bath Regional Career and Technical Center's Culinary Arts program, 100 lunches were delivered to various locations downtown. Proceeds from the sandwich drive will help to fund additional students attending the Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA) in June.
BRCTC Culinary Arts Students, Morse Interact Club members and Bath and Bath Sunrise Rotarians helped with sandwich preparation and delivery for the Lunch For Leaders sandwich drive to help raise funds for RYLA.
Vice President Bob Warren awarded a very deserving Brian Hatch a Paul Harris Fellow award at the December 6, 2016 meeting of the Bath Rotary Club. Brian, who has contributed to the Bath community through his career in Education and Athletics in local schools, and his service to Main Street Bath as a volunteer and Past President plus his service to the Maine Principals Association and Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference as well as to the Morse Alumni Association, plus many other efforts and accomplishments. Brian's infectious enthusiasm and energy is inspiring and kudos to Bob for recognizing Brian for his efforts.
