It was an early morning, but some members and family of the Sanford-Springvale Rotary Club managed to plant over 670 plants in the rain garden at the Autism/Therapy wing at the Fraser-Ford Child Development Center at Waban Projects. 14 people planted and mulched the 8' by approximately 100' rain garden. It was a fun project, making a difference!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Our club's second LFL was dedicated on Thursday, August 10th by President Danielle and Shawn Babine. It is a old newspaper box that was generously donated by the Journal Tribune newspaper and renovated and decorated by the Treadwell family. It is located in Holdsworth Park and will provide reading materials for people visiting the rec area. The LFL already had its first customer that morning!
District Governor Dave Underhill's official visit to our club was busy!

Our first Little Free Library (LFL) was dedicated on Monday, June 26th at East Side Acres on Bates St. in Sanford. Kids from the neighborhood did a marvelous job painting the LFL which was constructed by Sanford Rotarian, Neal Meltzer. Shawn Babine (literacy chair), Barbara Sutcliffe (president), Lawrence Furbish (community service chair) Jackie McDougal (Goodall Library director) and Bill Keefer (Sanford Housing Authority director) participated in the dedication. Rotary and the Goodall Library are planning to build and place more LFLs in the Sanford area. Keep an eye out for one in your neighborhood!
