Club of Belfast, Maine
97 Years of Service to our Community
December 2022

“Rotary started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.”


Here we are, 117 years later, carrying forward the vision of one man. Continuing to exchange ideas and form new meaningful friendships. Let’s keep leaning into this and run with the idea of a “Rush Week” that Declan O’Connor shared with us on November 16th. I see value in this for our community and specifically for our club’s membership. This is a perfect way to introduce our club to a new audience and perhaps gain some new members! We have an incredible group of folks in our club, let’s take it upon ourselves to become the WELCOMING COMMITTEE for the Belfast Area. Email me at if you’re interested in helping to get this going.

Yours in service, 

Kristine Wentworth

See you on December 14th @ 5pm at the Shrine Club for the Annual Rotary Holiday Dinner!

The 100 Fund is well on its way to breaking its previous record of needy children served. In 2021 we served 186 children and this year we will serve a minimum of 187. Records are made to be broken! In order to fully fund this record number of children, we need to raise an additional $880.00. The generosity this year has been staggering!
