The Barn is Open
The Boothbay Harbor Rotary Barn had the official opening last Saturday, season two has begun.  The sun was out and It was just barely warm enough in that big, grey barn, but it sure was fun to see old friends and new.  We will now be open every Saturday between 8:30-11:00 am at 55 Montgomery Rd, BBH 04538.  Come visit, you won’t be disappointed, Masks are Required.  We also need Rotary Club members to help out Saturday mornings meeting shoppers, visiting and of course our favorite, moving furniture or stocking shelves.
We are currently accepting donations of household goods, books, furniture, tools, collectibles and boats for the Rotary Barn.  We have room for them all now.  Just call Deb at 207-380-3550 and she can arrange a pick up or delivery time for you.  All donations are tax-deductible and all proceeds of sales at the Rotary Barn benefit local and international programs.  Do Good and Shop the Rotary Barn.
Join Us this Thursday and meet “Alfred Kantor”, Monica Churchill’s father.  Monica’s parents were Holocaust survivors.  Her mother was in one camp, Terezin, her father was in three camps, Auschwitz being the worst.  Her father was a trained artist and secretly sketched the atrocities he observed and experienced.  These sketches became “The Book of Alfred Kantor” and was published for the first time in 1970.  The Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City has had his book on display for the last year and a half.  Monica will give us an introduction to her parent’s life and her father’s sketches.  
The Museum of Jewish Heritage will be featuring the work of Alfred Kantor on a “Zoom” Webinar on April 20th at 4 PM.  This will include an interview of Monica and of her father. If you are interested, register at the Museum of Jewish Heritage website.  But, Join Us first this Thursday at 6PM for our “Meet the Family” series with Monica Churchill.
Don’t forget the Interact Club Hike-a-Thon.  Interact Club members are seeking sponsors, or you can sponsor yourself to help the Interact Club build trails on the Boothbay Region School property.  You can pledge $1.00 or $5.00 a mile or a trail.  Or a special bonus for someone who hikes all the trails.  The sign up sheet is attached or email Interact President, Emmie Harris at
Onions, Onions, OOPS!  Don’t forget to buy and sell onions.  Except, the price is $28.00 for a 25 lb box, the opposite of what I wrote last week.  Contact Doug Harley at or 207-315-6642.  Doug needs the final count by April 24th.  Delivery is mid-May.
Last week we met Andrew Mutch, Alice Mutch’s grandson.  He is currently studying at Edinburgh University, Edinburgh, Scotland.  Andrew shared his knowledge and passion about Peace Efforts in the Philippines.  Andrew is the first grandchild we hosted in our “Meet the Family” series and also the youngest.  You would never know after his engaging and knowledgeable presentation.  Thank you, Andrew
Ingrid Merrill is organizing the “Mock Interview” program again this year.   If you want to participate contact Ingrid at  It’s a fun program, meeting the young adults in our community always makes me optimistic for our future.
Hope to see you this Thursday on “Zoom” to hear Monica’s introduction to her parents and the sketches of her father, Alfred Kantor.  
Happy Spring, Irene
