Travis came to speak to the Sanford Springvale Rotary Club today. He starts off speech with 1. I'm awesome 2. I'm humble. He proceeded to tell is his life story… so far. His story included his birth, joining the Army, meeting his wife and having a baby girl, right up to dropping his pack on an IED on his third tour in Afghanistan, and how he lives as a quadriplegic amputee. He had is eating out of his hand. (Ha-ha his joke). He likes to "disarm" his audience with humor. He had the 60+ people gathered in stitches. Local Sanford resident Adrian Mauris was there with Travis the day he lost his arms and legs in Afghanistan, and he was also with us today!!
State Reps Karen Gerrish and Matt Harrington were able to introduce a Joint SENTIMENT from the House and Senate of the State of Maine, to honored Travis and presented it to him today at the Sanford Springvale Rotary Club.

Are you interested in giving back to the community, but your schedule doesn’t allow you to attend any existing public service group? Consider joining the Sanford SunSetters Rotary Club. We are a group of people committed to service. We meet regularly, get to know each other, and through that, we are able to get things done not only in this community but also worldwide. Rotary International has 1.2 million members and over 35,000 clubs in virtually every country in the world. We are working to eliminate polio, to provide clean drinking water, improve maternal and child health, increase literacy, and encourage peaceful solutions to the world’s problems. But most of what we do is right here in our own community. Right now we are cleaning up some of the city’s small private cemeteries, we are planning a bike safety event for school kids this spring, and we have other projects in the works.
