Friday, February 18, 2022 we had the treat of a presentation by our own Jud Knox, who is the Team Leader for the Rotary District 7780 Indigenous Focus - North America Project.  Jud told us about 3 projects this group is interesting in moving forward with in 2022.  Those projects included 
  • Funding WaYS ~ Wabanaki Youth in Science (WaYS) Program.  The Native American Tuition Waiver and Scholarship Program, and information about University of Maine programs that promote, support, and provide educational opportunities for and about Wabanaki peoples across the State of Maine and beyond.
  • Medicine Wheel Healing Garden ~ Partnership with the Houlton Band of Maliseet Indians to develop a Medicinal Garden. 
  • Education of Rotarians ~ The International team has spent the last year doing their homework.  Beginning in October 2021, they started meeting with various clubs to educate them of this project and how they can help.
