On February 24, 2015, Dennis St Pierre, a member of the Rotary Club of Brunswick, Maine, was presented with a merit award by our District Governor Larry Furbish, at the World Understanding and Peace Dinner in South Portland.
The guest speaker at this dinner was Rick King, International Rotary President for 2001-2002. It was absolutely fascinating hearing him tell his story about how Rotary has made a difference in his life, and in the World! The crowd was completely silent as we listened to his compelling words. It made me so proud to be a Rotarian!
Dennis was honored as an outstanding “new” Rotarian who has stepped up and understood what being a Rotarian is all about. Dennis has taken on significant responsibility in his short tenure, and has made a great impact to our club. His passion for helping people, his energy and his creative mind are the traits that set him apart.  Please join me in congratulating Dennis on this great honor!

Brunswick Rotary President Gary Torow presents a check to Ethan Minton, MCHPP Program Director
On Monday, December 8, 2014 the Rotary Club of Brunswick Maine presented Midcoast Hunger Prevention Program with a check for $3000 to support their Pack a Backpack program. As the MCHPP website explains, 

Every Monday morning, over a thousand students in the greater-Brunswick area arrive at school hungry. They leave school on Friday afternoon and simply don’t have enough food at home to provide the nutrition they need on the weekend. It affects their ability to concentrate. It affects their ability to learn. It affects their ability to do all the things many others take for granted. It doesn’t have to be this way. For around $5 a week, we can supply a student and their family with enough food to get through the weekend so they don’t go hungry.

The Rotary Club presentation is in addition to a $1000 check presented previously. The money was raised primarily through a Pack a Back Pack 4ME event in October.

The International Rotary Foundation awarded a $35,770 Global Grant to the Rotary Club of Brunswick for a project to train teachers to recognize common illnesses in Lusaka, Zambia. The local club has partnered with the  Nkwazi Rotary Club of Lusaka as well as “Healthy Kids/Brighter Future,” a local non-profit, and the N’Gombe Health Clinic, in Lusaka. This alliance will bring health screening, health education and treatment for common illnesses to 16,000 of the poorest and most vulnerable children in Zambia
The genesis of this project came from a visit to a Brunswick Rotary Club meeting last March from Lonnie Hackett, a Bowdoin College senior. While Lonnie was a student at Bowdoin College, he had an opportunity to travel to Zambia during summer break in 2011 to teach English and math. While there, he noticed an alarming gap in his students’ knowledge of basic health care including common and preventable childhood diseases, sanitation, and HIV/AIDS education and prevention.  
Lonnie traveled to rural Nepal in the summer of 2012 where he observed a school-based healthcare model that he believed could be modified to fit the vulnerable children in the N’Gombe district of Lusaka, where the poorest children live and attend school.  
During his senior year as a biochemistry major, Lonnie garnered the knowledge of any global health expert who would listen to his goal of establishing a program to train teachers as health care providers within the 50-public schools that serve children who suffer from treatable diseases. He established “Healthy Kids/ Brighter Future” to bring medical services and health education to children in need.  
Rotary International is one of the largest not-for-profit service organizations in the world, with approximately 1.6 million members actively participating in thousands of local clubs spread across 161 countries around the world. Rotary International Foundation contributes nearly $100 million every year toward humanitarian programs in which Rotary members participate and voluntarily raise funds.  
The Rotary Club of Brunswick was chartered in 1925 and currently has an active membership of 70 community leaders. They meet weekly, except on holidays, at noon on Monday in Brunswick.

The Brunswick Rotary Club recently installed a new swing-set at the Tedford Housing – Family Shelter on Federal Street in Brunswick. “There had been a swing set there but it had to be closed a few years ago as it was deteriorating and no longer safe,” says Don Kniseley, a member of the Rotary Club and former director of Tedford Housing. “Tedford did not have funds to replace the playground equipment at this time so we received a Rotary International Foundation grant and matched it with Club funds to purchase and install the swing set.”

Craig Phillips, current Tedford Housing executive director says that this is an important new addition to their work with homeless families and children. "When families are in such a stressful situation, having safe and appropriate outdoor play space really means a lot. We very much appreciate the Brunswick Rotary Clubs thoughtfulness and hard work."
