Community Organization Rallies Support
for Family in Need

The Ogunquit Rotary Club rallied to support the Spearin family of Wells that recently lost everything as a result of a house fire.      
Ogunquit Rotarian Gordon Lewis, who is also the Assistant Coach for the Wells/York Legion Baseball team, coached Hunter Spearin last summer. Lewis heard of the Spearin family’s loss and requested a $500 donation from the Ogunquit Rotary Club. As the request was being discussed, the Ogunquit Rotary Club decided to “pass the hat” to match the monies donated by the Club. As a result, a total of $1,115 was collected.
Hunter will play out his High School baseball career with the Wells Warriors and, hopefully, help carry them into the State playoffs. He will again play Legion baseball this summer and hopes to play next year in college.
The entire Ogunquit Rotary Club wishes the Spearin family good luck as they work on rebuilding their home and lives.
