Stories
This is a chance for all of us to share in the joy that WASH projects bring to
our beneficiary communities.  The Rotary Clubs of Bath, York, Boothbay and Bath Sunrise
along with District 7780 supported this fun and rewarding effort. The kids learned about the 
transmission of germs by handing around a glitter ball. The children built their own Tippy-Tap
hand washing station and many requested materials in order to build one at home.

Rich Cromwell reports some news from the CIO Orphanage in Cambodia:
 
We are all so proud of Srey Hang, Sokneat and Sokleng. Not only have they studied hard and passed their national exams (like our SAT's) but
they are also a big help to Srey Mom at CIO. Each has their own heartbreaking story but they are focused with joy and optimism on their futures.
The girls will remain in the CIO family as they continue their studies.
Thank you for your support of CIO and these lovely young ladies!
 
Rich Cromwell, Jen Merrill and Shelby Kaplan's recent work in Cambodia is featured in the February 2021 WASH newsletter. You can see the entire publication in the downloads section on the left side of the Home Page.

Partnering with the Bath Sunrise Rotary Club on a district grant, the Bath Rotary Club was able to give $6000 to Woolwich Fire & Rescue to help purchase a second heart monitor for their ambulance. Bath Subaru was also able to donate $15,000 through Subaru's Share The Love promotion. First responders, Sunrise and Bath Rotarians as well as members of the Woolwich Selectboard were on hand for the presentation. 
Our own Lois Skillings spoke at the Portland stop of the Million Mask Challenge on October 6th, 2020 as a representative of health care workers in our region. The Challenge traveled through six states, hosted nine strategic event stops, delivered 100,000 PPE face-masks to each Rotary District and their Clubs throughout New England. The goal is to have each Rotary Club in these areas provide protective masks to grass-roots first responders, essential workers and schools inside their communities. Rotary District 7780, which includes 41 Rotary clubs in Southern Maine and Coastal New Hampshire, is planning the publicity events around the mask distribution to highlight the importance of wearing masks and the role of Rotarians in the community. Pictured L to R is Bath Rotarian and CEO of Mid Coast-Parkview Health Lois Skillings, District Governor Peggy Belanger and District Governor Elect Dick Hall.
The Modular Homebuilders Association of Maine (MHBA) has donated $5000 to the Bath Rotary Charitable Trust in support of
the Bath Rotary's long standing collaboration with the Bath Regional Career and Technical Center. 
Rob and Nick Sherman of Hallmark Homes (on right) presented the award stating that the MHBA is keenly aware of the importance of 
vocational training and wishes to support and encourage both the Rotary and Bath Vocational Center. 
Bath Rotary Club President Brigit Cavanagh and Bath Rotarian Rich Cromwell accepted the award.
5 AEDs were purchased with proceeds from last summer's Golf Tournament and are now in service at various Bath Recreation Department locations. Pictured in photo are (l to r): Dana Delahanty and Steve Balboni of the Bath Rec Department, current Bath Rotary President Betsy Harrington, Leslie Gallant from the Bath Area Baseball League, Past Rotary President and former baseball coach Bob Warren, Rotary Secretary Caelie Smith and Rotary Board member Rick Byrnes.
 
The modular house under construction was moved in order to pour the concrete slab at the construction site which will assist in future modular homes built there.
 
It was very cold but sunny (to start) at our Fill-A-Bus Food Drive held on Saturday, February 2nd at Shaw's Supermarket. In the top photo Tom Edwards, Assistant DG Bob Reed of the Sunrise Club and Mike Jamison man the table at the front entrance. The bottom photo features Tom Edwards (ready to end his shift!), with relief from Jeff Guenther, Jason Ritchie and Caelie Smith. We collected  $567 in cash, $150 in checks and  1633 pounds of food for the Bath Area Food Bank. A Super Saturday indeed!
