Many of you will remember Lonnie Hackett, who came to speak to our club in 2015 about his fledgling child health care program in Zambia called Healthy Kids/Brighter Future.  In the spring of 2016, our club (along with several other clubs) pitched in $500.00 to support a RI global grant application. (see below)  The result - an approved global grant of nearly $125,000 for the HK/BF program and 15,000 children in Zambia now receiving much needed basic health care.  This incredible morphing only happens through the Rotary Foundation. We all can take pride in our participation and support of this deserving project.  
Subject: Healthy Kids/Brighter Future Global Grant Approved and Underway
Fellow Rotarians:
Our thanks and appreciation to the 35 Rotary Clubs, 3 Rotary Districts, and  4 individual Rotarians who donated and supported the Global Grant for Healthy Kids/Brighter Future in Lusaka, Zambia. The Grant was approved by Rotary International, and payment of the first installment was made earlier this month.  The final grant amount was approximately $123,500. Attached is a recent HK/BF Newsletter showing the results of our significant support.  You should feel proud knowing that your donations to the Global Grant are contributing to the improvement of the lives of thousands of young people in Lusaka.

Sanford-Springvale Rotarians having way too much fun packaging meals for 11,172 hungry people in York County on Thursday morning. All the packaged food was donated to York County Shelter Food Pantry. Diane Gerry and Elias Thomas co-chaired this terrific activity. Not sure how we will manage to return to our normal Thursday morning meetings. Big thank-you to all the guest volunteers and the York County Shelter staffers for their assistance.

Joel Van Tassell, Nick Merry and Guen Beaupre are pictured speaking to our Rotary Club about their recent RYLA experience at Camp Hinds in June. Our club sponsored them to attend the 4-day youth leadership camp along with Emily Cyr, who was unable to attend this meeting. It was inspirational to listen to these future leaders share their excitement and enthusiasm for the RYLA program and what they learned from having attended.
