"I am both honored and humbled to receive this recognition from my peers. I can not say enough about the amazing team we have in the Western Maine region, and it is easy for me to give 110% to make the region better. More specifically, it has been amazing to be part of the growth of the region's RCS program and I want to thank my RCS team for continually supporting me and also challenging me to be the best I can be. Thank you!!"

The Eastern Maine Region of Providence Human Services has participated in Bowl for Kids’ Sake the last three years. It’s a great time in support of a great cause, and this year was no exception. Each year Big Brothers Big Sisters organizes this fundraising opportunity across Maine to support children in connecting with mentors in the community. Providence in Eastern Maine has joined the effort to support this need annually, contributing to the effort of our community partners in bettering the lives of children and families in the communities we mutually seek to serve and support. This year Eastern Maine raised over $300 toward the cause, forming three bowling teams who sought sponsors. On March 28th and April 1st, 2015 Eastern Maine joined businesses and agencies across the community who also formed bowling teams and bowled strikes and gutter balls all in an effort to raise awareness and funds to support the connections that Big Brothers Big Sisters strives to make for kids! A huge thank you to all those who participated on bowling teams: Tiffany Head, Chris Pelletier, Elisha Foss, Leigh Broughan, Eric Samuelson, Hayley Bickford, Cathie Gignac, Amy Wilson, Tessa Grindle, Amanda Prescott, Jessie Daley, Whitney Page. Rachael Tyler, Eastern Maine Regional Director, stated, “This event is always a great opportunity to join our community partners in giving back to the communities we live in and support, and it’s always a great opportunity to have some fun together as colleagues.” -Rachael Tyler, Regional Director, Eastern Maine.
