Proceeds support scholarships for high school seniors heading to college or trade school, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards for high school sophomores.
Rotary clubs do important work. But members who want to do even more can connect with other Rotarians who share their passion at a higher level of intensity in one particular area. A Rotary Action Group (RAG) is a voluntary organization that functions independently of Rotary International.  Each RAG establishes its own rules, dues requirements, and administrative structure.  RAGs are composed of Rotarians, family members, program participants and alumni who are experts in a particular field.   Group members share their expertise by collaborating with clubs and districts on service projects. Here are eight Rotary Action Groups that focus on a particular disease prevention and awareness.
Superintendent Sandy Prince was the guest speaker on Tuesday, November 26th. He listed top priorities that he sees, including consolidating schools. RYLA alumni and parents were invited and shared their experiences.

 

On Saturday November 23 Saco Bay Sunset loaded another container, the district's 10th, of mobility devices for Crutches4Africa. The club has also started a mobility loan closet.
