Rotary's memorable motto is "Service above Self." And we are all wondering how that translates with social distancing as the new norm. Below I give you three 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. I will be sending invitations to Club Members about next Monday's meeting at noon in a separate email. Waterville Sunrise will also be joining us. 
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. 
  • On the remarkable volunteering side, note that Waterville Winslow and Vassalboro school staff and teachers are preparing lunches that are then delivered all around on school buses! Also, the Alfond Center is preparing 1000 meals per day for distribution! 
Third, be sure to exercise, go take a walk, or run, or bike ride on one of the many trails in Kennebec Messalonskee Trails. You could "do a marathon" during this extraordinary period by exploring all 18 of our trail routes or sets of trails. See for a map and brief descriptions.
