Vince christinziano, united states navy submarine company

WHEN DID YOU JOIN ROTARY? 2007
 
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO JOIN ROTARY?  I was and still am excited to have the opportunity to work with a team that is committed to the local community.
 
SINCE BEING IN ROTARY ARE THERE ANY SPECIFIC PROJECTS THAT YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF? WHY? I’ve been extremely happy to see our continued commitment of fundraising to meet our High School/Community College Scholarships goals; and our pledges to the local Food Pantries – these important endeavors make a difference in people’s lives.
 
TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF: WHAT IS YOUR LINE OF WORK? WHAT GOT YOU IN THE FIELD? WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE HOBBYS? WHAT DO YOU WANT OTHER ROTARIANS AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO GAIN OUT OF THIS ROTARY CLUB?
I’ve worked within the United States Navy Submarine community for the last 30 years – loving every minute of it!  I enjoy all aspects of weight lifting and weight training; and I’m committed to our local community. “Rotary is service.  You don’t come to Rotary to get something out of it, you come to Rotary to put something into it...and once you’ve put something into it – you will get something out of it, but it won’t be what you expect, it will be better.”

I joined the Wells Rotary Club in 1988, served as president in 2001.  Former member of the Damariscotta Newcastle Rotary Club 2004 – 2008, former member of the Rockland Rotary Club 2008 – 2012, rejoined the Wells Club in 2014.
 
I wanted to join Rotary because I had seen the great works they had accomplished from the vantage point of my father being a longtime Rotarian.  I saw the teamwork and comradery that can exist in working together to accomplish a goal, and I saw the fun that can be had by a group of like- minded people.
 
Projects that I can take pride in are my participation in helping to build ramps for folks that needed help getting into their homes here in Wells.  This is the local connection that I think is so important for our club to have.  I also want to acknowledge Rockland Rotary Club’s Winter Carnival, where the club put on a complete winter carnival for the town, free of charge,  as a thank you for the towns support of the club.  There would be upwards of 2-300 people, mostly kids, who participated in this event.
 
I am a grief resolution specialist, helping families as they begin their grief walk immediately following the death of a loved one.  While this involves quite a bit of time, I also find time to enjoy hiking biking and kayaking with my wife Robin, especially in Acadia National Park;  following Grace and Luke’s life’s experiences as they delve into early adulthood, Hunt and fly fish, and when its’ too cold outside, try to get my Lionel trains running.

MEMBER SINCE: 1980
 
WHEN DID YOU JOIN ROTARY?: I was a member of the Wells/Ogunquit Rotary Club in the early 1980’s.  I left Rotary for 8 years when I was in the Maine Legislature from 1990-98 and rejoined shortly after that.
 
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO JOIN ROTARY?: To participate in good works.  The people in Rotary.
 
TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF: WHAT IS YOUR LINE OF WORK? WHAT GOT YOU IN THE FIELD? WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE HOBBYS? WHAT DO YOU WANT OTHER ROTARIANS AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO GAIN OUT OF THIS ROTARY CLUB?: I have practiced law in Wells since 1979 after five years in Dover, NH.  My practice specializes in condominiums and condominium associations.  I am interested in photography, history, politics and hope to travel more in the future with my wife Patricia. I am currently studying for the qualification exam, hoping to become a Registered Parliamentarian in January, 2016.   In the past I have been active in many community organizations and in political matters, but personal and work commitments now limit my free time mostly to Rotary and Rotary functions, and to travel.

ELLEN FARBER-LIBOWITZ

MEMBER SINCE: February 2007
 
WHAT MADE YOU JOIN ROTARY?: I joined to continue the work of my late husband Jack Farber who was a member for 43 years in Malden and Melrose, Massachusetts and then joined Ogunquit Rotary when we moved here full time in June of 2005.  I was just a Rotarian, but felt at this point I should step up to the ranks.
 
SINCE BEING IN ROTARY ARE THERE ANY SPECIFIC PROJECTS THAT YOU ARE MOST PROUD OF?  WHY?:  Yes, one was the Dominican Republic Water Bay installation project from Ogunquit Rotary.  I did not participate and go there, but hosted 8 Rotarians from the Dominican Republic Rotary, for 2 nights at my home in Ogunquit.  They stayed overnight and we had a cook - out, Lobster bake party with music and speeches. Another is the music and Literacy projects for the Wells Rotary.  The Golf Tournaments have been wonderful to participate in, as well as sponsor.
 
TELL ME ABOUT YOURSELF: WHAT IS YOUR LINE OF WORK? WHAT GOT YOU IN THE FIELD? WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE HOBBIES? WHAT DO YOU WANT OTHER ROTARIANS AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO GAIN OUT OF THIS ROTARY CLUB?: I have been a Music Educator for many years having taught in the public schools of New York and Massachusetts and presently in my 10th year at Berwick Academy.  I also am a Rabbi/ Cantor and am employed for 19 years at a Temple in Massachusetts as well as in Ogunquit. I also own 8 Photo and Video stores in 4 states - Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Maine called Hunt Photo. I was born and educated in New York City.  I moved to Massachusetts when I married my late husband Jack Farber.  I live between Ogunquit and Massachusetts once again now that I'm married again to Howard Libowitz.  I also own a home in Del Ray Beach, Florida. Between us we have 6 children (myself 4) and 11 grandchildren (myself 7).  I am vice president (formerly president) of the International Women's Club of New England, a member of the Ogunquit Chamber of Commerce and the York Clergy Association. I also volunteer and do clergy visits at the York Hospital.   My hobbies are biking, walking, working out in the gym, singing in the Seacoast Community chorus, directing, playing the piano and singing with my group Les Chanteuses which sings for Nursing Homes in the area. I wish to support  worthy charitable endeavors with Wells Rotary.  I like the comradery of being with selfless individuals who believe life is most fulfilling when helping others less fortunate.  I have always been involved in charitable causes and welcome the opportunity to continue to do so.

Chad Flagg of Saco Bay Physical Therapy specializes in out patient care. He completed his residency in MA concentrating on post stroke/spinal injury. Upon completion he returned to Maine and currently resides in Saco. SBPT is made up of 5 team members who focus on occupational therapy including but not limited to; orthopedic care, geriatrics, pediatric, and sports medicine related to muscular and joint injury.  They service patients throughout the seacoast. Most of their business is derived from physician referral and word of mouth. The clinic is open 6 days a week and services anywhere from 12-15 patience a day. In addition to office visits Chad is focusing on working with local schools and business to help reduce occupational injury as a result of poor ergonomics, and injury prevention in athletes. Chad was just invited to oversee the Massabesic Athletic Association managing the severity of injury and helping to prevent reoccurrence of subsequent injuries in young athletes. This opportunity to do on-site triage care will help aid in education as well as proper detection of concussions, a major concern of communities throughout the state. Chad spoke about the importance of immediate management and proper diagnoses of concussions and the studies that support this.
