McFarland third recipient of the Paul Harris Fellows Award

The Sebago Lake Rotary Club was honored to present their third and final Paul Harris Fellows Award for this year to Steve McFarland at their recent meeting.

McFarland of Windham/Raymond Adult Education has been a dedicated Rotarian spearheading many projects over the years but most recently his efforts to engage the club in the End Hunger Outreach packaging program last fall has now developed into a Rotary District project which will take place at the Maine Mall in South Portland on Sept. 27th. They expect to package over 16,000 meals for local food pantries. 

McFarland was also instrumental in transforming the Sebago Lake Ice Fishing Derby into the Sebago Lake Region and Cumberland County Ice Fishing Derby which included fishing on any lake or body of water that was in or bordered Cumberland County. This would now allow the derby to take place regardless if Sebago Lake was frozen or not.

This new strategy positioned the derby to have one of its most successful in many years this year. If you would like more information on the End Hunger Outreach packaging event you can contact McFarland at smcfarland@windhamraymondschools.org.
