As you likely know our Club Secretary Lisa Shaw has taken a new job which will require her to relocate to the Bangor area. Congratulations and Best Wishes Lisa!
That also means that we are looking for someone to fill her spot on the Rotary Board and for someone to serve as Club Secretary. If you have interest in serving in either of the capacities, please let Austin Bleess know.
U. S. Senator Angus King is scheduled to speak to our club on July 27th. We are excited to welcome Senator King to come and speak to our club! 
This years lucky winners were Joan Theriault who won $4,000, Jim Savage who won $5,000 and Machias Savings Bank which took home the grand prize of $6,000.   
 
We were honored to have Rotary youth exchange students as guests at last Wednesday's meeting. Pictured are Sarah Draper, of Caribou (left), who recently visited England and stayed with Chloe Waddington (center). Now, Chloe is staying with Sarah and visiting the US. Chloe exchanged club banners with a representative of the Caribou Rotary Club's Youth Exchange committee member, Katherine Anderson (right).
Austin and Mike worked tirelessly to make a compelling argument why people should access club information online and through their smartphones. Results are tremendous!
