Rotarians to Raise Roof

SO. BERWICK & ELIOT The South Berwick Eliot Rotarians plan to raise a roof in the mountains of Honduras, and they invite members of the community to join them. The 10th annual South Berwick-Eliot Rotary Community Geography Quiz Friday, March 23, at the Great Works School in South Berwick will raise the money to put a roof on a new building for a nutritional center and day care center started 10 years ago by a North Berwick elementary school teacher. Sharon Beckwith of North Bewick built a small daycare center in Concepcion del Norte after visiting the mountains of

Honduras and hearing about a woman who starved to death so she would have enough food to feed her own four children. More than a dozen teams will compete in the annual quiz, including teachers, parents, business leaders, and students from all five schools in the Marshwood District. The quiz each year draws hundreds of people to watch game-show-style fun. Audience members are invited to compete for an audience participation prize. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for silent auction, raffle and food and the quiz will begin at 6 p.m. with a presentation by Beckwith about the project. The geography quiz has

raised money in the past for the Eben Ezer School in Milot, Haiti, to send portable kitchens down to an impoverished town in northern Colombia and to help free enslaved women and girls in Nepal. Last year it raised funds for Safe Passage in Guatemala. A former nurse, Beckworth’s efforts to provide clean water, education and medical care evolved into an organization called Daisy’s Children that now feeds 132 children two meals a day and has fed more than 400,000 meals in the 10 years since her first trip. “I dream that the children of these communities receive the same opportunity as my or your child, nephew or niece,� said Beckwith. “Where in the World is Concepcion del Norte,� is free and open to the public. Raffles, a silent auction, pizza and baked goods will be available. The geography quiz was organized by Cindy and Mike

Moloney, who began the quiz fundraiser with their two young children. They hoped to introduce their daughters to the idea that many people in the world do not live with blessings and comfort they had. “The money raised by this quiz will not only help the children in Honduras, but will continue to build connections between communities with very different experiences and challenges,� said Mike. “Sharon has worked for years to bring a better life to the children of Conception del Norte and we are glad to be able to help her.� The quiz features teams of two students and two adults, including teachers, parents and community members representing just about every Marshwood

school. Each team is sponsored for $250, mostly by donations from South Berwick Eliot Rotary members and a few other businesses. Raffle and silent auction items are donated by local businesses. There will be home baked goods, with Robin Wheeler of Eliot leading the effort. The Marshwood Interact Club will sell pizza and water.
