Cindy Richendollar, President of the Washburn Rotary Club, welcomes  District 7810's 2013-2014 Governor, Pat Perry.  Pat attended the July 10 meeting of the Washburn club, along with Floyd Rockholt of the Presque Isle Rotary Club, who is the new Assistant District Governor for the local area. 

 

District 7810 includes Rotary Clubs in northern Maine and all of New Brunswick.  Pat is from Miramichi, N.B.  Pat spoke to the club on behalf of Rotary International, with an emphasis on Rotary's Polio Plus program, which is working to eliminate polio from the planet. 

Pat also worked alongside the Washburn Rotarians at their recent truck/tractor pull.

On July 6, 2013, The Rotary Club of Washburn, Maine hosted their 4th annual Truck and Tractor pull at the Northern Maine Fairgrounds in Presque Isle, Maine.  The evening was a great success for the club, with wonderful weather, a good number of pulling participants, a great crowd in the grandstands, and a very successful 50/50 drawing.  This is the club's major fund-raiser for the year, and nets several thousand dollars for distribution to the club's many beneficiaries. 

This year many volunteers helped the 15-member club achieve their goal, including DG Pat Perry, who helped wherever and whenever she was needed.  It was a long,warm day, but was deemed a success by all who attended.
