Our Biggest Fund Raiser of the year is Back!  

Duck Adoption Paper Forms are available that you can pick up at the meetings, or you can Adopt your Ducks on Line at https://www.duckrace.com/sacobay.
 
Our goal is to adopt 5,000 ducks this year. Last year we were able to meet our goal, will you help us do it again this year?  Remember that the money raised will fund our Charitable Giving Committee. 
 
The Duck Pluck will happen on August 25th at the OOB Ball Park during the Kenny Chesney Tribute Band, No Shoes Nation, concert. The Grand Prize is $2,500 and there is a total of over $4,000 in cash prizes!
 
Good Luck and Thank You for your support!

President Phil Smith presents a check for $4200 towards an ambulance for Burundi, Africa to Dr. Susan Black, of the Brunswick Coastal Club. Dr. Black recently presented at the club of Saco Bay recounting her inspiring history of helping others across the globe and how Rotary has played a key role. Her presentation left such an impression that fellow Saco Bay Members donated funds to add to dedicated charitable giving funds.  Susan is a remarkable women who quickly became one of our favorite speakers!
