Another Successful Maine Day

The University of Maine Circle K club had on of their most successful Maine Days ever! Club members began by participating in the morning of service projects by volunteering for the University by washing University vehicles from the Education Department and Motor Pool. We we very honored and lucky to have been joined by Current District Governor Rachel Shanely, Immediate Past District Governor Katie Pappas, and Past Governor Tyler Foote, all of whom helped out with washing cars!


Afterwards UMaine Circle K members raced to the Steam Plant Parking lot to help put on one of the most successful St. Baldrick’s on Maine Day head shaving events yet! As of now we have raised over $14,000 to go towards pediatric Cancer Research with over 100 heads shaved! The crowd was very enthusiastic and many people cheered on all of the shavees throughout the entirety of the event.
