The Spring Hill Lodge in South Berwick was full of fans of Mike Moloney as he became the recipient of Citizen of the Year 2015 honors by the South Berwick – Eliot Rotary Club. Mike is well-known and beloved among the citizens of South Berwick and Eliot and beyond. His story is an inspirational and heart-warming one.
He immigrated to America from Ireland and became a part of the local community for the past 23 years. He met his wife Cindy while she was studying in Ireland and love brought them both back to America and his new life in Maine. In his words, “Becoming a member of the South Berwick Rotary Club in 1990 was the point at which we as a family really became integrated into the fabric of the community.” Whenever Mike and his wife served the community, his two daughters, Catie and Annie, always came along, too. From serving water at the town races, to delivering food at the lobsterfest, to helping at blood drives, to feeding senior citizens at Thanksgiving, to manning the food pantry, the Moloney family was everywhere. During the times of strife in Northern Ireland, Mike was instrumental in bringing kids from different backgrounds together through the Friends Forever program which he introduced to South Berwick, a project that was near and dear to him to promote peace and harmony. Having studied geography while in Ireland, he and his mother discovered that Geography Quiz Nights were great for raising funds and world awareness, and he brought that concept to Maine. Thanks to his expertise and talents, and the help of his family again, the Rotary Club has run a number of these quiz nights to raise funds for Rotary projects in Bangladesh, Haiti, Colombia, and other locations having great need.
