BRUNSWICK — Poor rural communities in Guatemala and Cambodia that have been “adopted” by Rotarians in Brunswick and Bath, including a teacher at Lewiston High School, will be the beneficiaries of a musical fundraiser at 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 2, at Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick.

Entrence to the event is is by donation, $10 is suggested, and will build on well-established programs.

The Safe Water for Guatemala Youth Project began more than a year ago with the help of Brunswick Coastal Rotarian Patty MacKinnon, a Lewiston High School teacher, and Brunswick High School Interact member Marina MacKinnon, who volunteered for several years in the Central American nation. Through a Rotary grant and fundraising, the mother-daughter team bought water filters and de-worming medicine for 280 villagers. 

At the event, children can make a toy toothbrush for the dolls, cut out materials to make their own doll, or buy a Safe Water Doll of their own. All proceeds will go to purchasing water filters.

Dave Bullard, popular local musician and renowned Latin and Spanish guitarist, will perform world music compositions inspired by his travels. Dave was recognized last year as a Paul Harris Fellow for his generous contributions to Rotary. Suggested donation: $10
