ROCKLAND — West Bay Rotarians spent a Saturday morning in mid-June working at Midcoast Habitat for Humanity’s Philbrick Commons, in Rockland.

West Bay Rotary typically volunteers quarterly to work with Midcoast Habitat for Humanity, but they are trying to volunteer even more often during these tough times, according to Rotary, in a news release. 

“Because of COVID-19, many groups have had to cancel their scheduled work on this project, so they are trying to pick up some extra days,” said the group.

Over the past few years, West Bay Rotarians have worked on everything from framing to insulation to painting on several different homes. They never have trouble finding volunteers for these projects because they all love giving back to the community and always have fun doing it, according to Rotary. A couple times they actually met the future owner of the home they were working on and were even able to work with them
on their home. 

This day was extra special, according to the Rotarians, because President Kim Milton presented a Paul Harris Fellow to Executive Director Tia Anderson. See for more information about this prestigious honor.
