Food, Festivities and Film

What a great way to throw a Rotary meeting! We all gathered at the Harbor Theatre for food, festivities, and a film of great artistic merit – but more on that in a minute.

It was great to see so many old and new faces in the crowd.  Lots of people showed up – Rotarians, friends, and friends of friends.  Nicole Evans wins points for bringing three generations of family (father, son) to the evening.  It was fabulous to see both Gerri Botti and Sue Kreahling – we hope to see much more of you.  Daren Graves is looking good, and best of all is Becky Welsh – disconnected from tubes, walking about and handling her cane like a scepter.  How wonderful is that!

After drinks and snacks the meeting – if you can call it that – came to order. Even though there’s lots going on, Irene Fowle didn’t even have any announcements!  Ham Meserve thanked the club for our donations to the Harbor Theatre, which have made it possible for the theatre to show family friendly films at an even friendlier entrance fee – $0.  This evening, and a private showing of “80 for Brady” was, he explained, the theatre’s way of saying thank you to Rotary and also helping to publicize that the theatre is back in action and better than ever.

That “better” includes new air circulation systems and – this author may be prejudiced – a new manager in Lynn Thompson, who is, after all, an ABD (all but dues-paying) Rotarian through her husband Mike. Is it any surprise that since Lynn has come on board the offerings at the theatre have just been getting better and better?

As for the film – well, the whole point of the film is to watch Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda play off against one another, Rita Moreno and Sally Field thrown in for good measure. That’s not to mention the celebrity cameos by Guy Fieri, Rob Gronkowski, and of course, everyone’s favorite QB Tom Brady.  

Thursday Meeting 

This week's meeting will be  a "Classification Talk" by a new member (or two).  We are so lucky to have new, engaged members.  I think several even have trucks.  Classification talks are a format for new members to introduce themselves to the club in fifteen minutes or less.  Always interesting to get to know some history and what drew new members to Rotary. 

Barn Clean Up

The Rotary Barn season is right around the corner.  So, This Saturday, February 25, we'll meet at the barn at 9:00 for a Barn Clean Up day.  Bring your trucks and trailers, dress warm.  Out with some of the old, to make room for the new.

School Staff Appreciation Day

We're delivering pizza, salad and dessert to the staff at the Boothbay and Edgecomb schools on Friday March 17th.  Charlotte Jameson and Nancy Adams are co-chairing this project this year.  Hooray new members.  Sign up sheets will be going round to help with delivery.  School staff are having another very challenging year.  So glad Nancy and Charlotte are continuing this project.

Alice Mutch and several club members delivered pizza and goodies to the Southport School last Friday to thank them for their commitment to teaching and caring for the young people in our community.

If you're interested in the fun and work of Rotary join us every Thursday around 6:00 pm at our Clubhouse located at 66 Montgomery Rd, Boothbay Harbor.  Visiting Rotarians, community members, friends and family are always welcome.
