                District Governor Sheila's Message
Help clear a nature path at the new LEA Science center. You will need to bring your tool of choice (lawn and/or garden rake, spade, or brush clippers) and gloves.  A box lunch will be provided at the Science Center.  RSVP to Sheila Rollins to reserve a spot on the team. (FMI see www.mainelakes.org)

Want to apply for a Rotary Foundation grant this spring?  First, your Club must "qualify," and one of the requirements is that two members ANNUALLY take the Grants Management Seminar. That seminar is now available online on MyRotary, and you can take it when you like, where you like.
To access:  Go to www.rotary.org, and log into MyRotary.  Select LEARNING CENTER from the "Learning and Reference" menu across the top of the MYROTARY page.  Once you are in the Learning Center, put "District 7780" in the search bar and click the yellow SEARCH button.  The course, "District 7780 Annual Grants Training" will come up.  Click the blue REGISTER button to register and take the course. You'll find that it consists of three modules.  Take them at your leisure and at $0 cost. Simple as that.
The Grants notebook with all the details is also available online.  Click HERE to download or (from the District website) go to www.rotary7780.org; click on the drop-down tab "Foundation and Grants," the tab "Grants" and it is all there.  Alternatively, ​Marty Helman ​can send you the complete notebook, already printed out and tabulated, for a $20 check (the cost of the notebook).  Email martyrotary@gmail.com ​to sort out the details.
Whatever you do, please do NOT use last year's notebook -- data in it is out of date and will only cause "issues" if followed ...

Rotary Districts 7780 and 9211 are sponsoring a Global Grant to ship medical equipment and provide medical training needed to open a new Cancer Center in Kampala, Uganda. A team of medical professionals will travel from the US to Uganda to provide training in patient care to staff at Nsambya Hospital. The team will consist of doctors and nurses with experience in oncology treatment. Other medical professionals with related experience (nutrition, social work, pharmacology) may be selected to participate on the team. Anticipated travel dates to Uganda will be during July of 2016. A team of nurses from Nsambya Hospital will travel to Maine for training and professional enhancement (anticipated in August of 2016). 
This grant is funded by The Rotary Foundation. The team may consist of both Rotarians and non-Rotarians. The key to developing the team will be relevant background, experience, and willingness to be a participating member of the team. Please find the Uganda medical mission application in the Downloads column on the home page.

Put Thursday, November 10, 2016 on your calendar and be a part of our district's celebration of the Rotary Foundation's 100th anniversary.
