WELCOME to our newest member, who was inducted today:  Dave Fraher

Amy Scott presented an interesting talk on the Local Food Connection, which is fostering a movement in the greater Bethel region that encourages all community members to grow, prepare, serve, purchase, and consume local foods.  Amy has been involved for 3 years.  One activity being promoted is a Buying Club -- now at 35 members -- for purchasing Maine produce.  Another is the formation of a Culinary Club at Telstar, using the kitchen at the Alliance Church.  The Local Food Connection organization meets monthly and is a member of the Bethel Area Nonprofit Collaborative.

For Rotary Information, Ellie gave a rundown of the many activities carried out and planned by the very energetic Interact group at Telstar. 

~Thanks Walter~
