With all of the endless talk over the past two weeks of Bill and Tom's legacy of winning and cheating, I think it is important to highlight three local people who are making the time and effort to help those who are less fortunate.
For the past several months, Emma Bodwell (Mortgage Network), Kristen Charette (Norway Savings Bank) and Cathy Sullivan, all members of the Bridgton-Lake Region Rotary Club, are spending a week in the Dominican Republic working on a mission trip.
The three women solicited and collected (over 300 pounds, I believe) a variety of supplies, clothing and toiletries to bring with them. Each day they will be working with schools and orphanages delivering supplies and helping to educate the women, children and families of this impoverished country.
Their daily work and thoughts, as well as photos, will be updated daily on their blog, Bridgton Lake Region Rotary Club Blog
