Congratulations to Merle Googins Spirit Of America Recipient

Merle Googins was born in Falmouth, Maine and attended Falmouth schools. He was one of 13 children. After school Merle enlisted in the National Guard as a cook for 9 years. Most of his employment he worked at lumber yards. In his later years he worked at Walmart and Kezar Falls Hardware until retirement. Merle married Glenna Mae Parker in 1958 and raised two children Merlene Ann and Glen Allen. He received his high school diploma 2 weeks before his daughter from the same school: Sacopee Valley High School. Throughout Merle’s life his goal was to make a difference in the community he resides. In Falmouth he was a member of the Pleasant Hill Fire Dept. for many years. We are lucky he moved to Cornish is 1969. Merle joined the Masonic Greenleaf Lodge #117 in 1973. Later he became Master and Deputy District for the 18th Masonic district. He volunteers to organize & fundraise many different activities; coordinates & prepares table lodges, suppers for both the brethren and public; organizes the annual golf tournament to raise money for 3 scholarships awarded to graduating students at SVHS; organizes the Greenleaf Lodge sponsored Red Cross blood drive. The Grand Lodge of Maine AF&AM awarded Merle with the Simon Greenleaf Medal which represents the contribution of his time, thoughts & service to Masonry beyond the usual life of duty. Merle keeps the Riverside Cemetery in tip top shape. He makes sure the graves are prepared for burials, the burial sites are ready for Memorial Day, and general ground maintenance. He does this along with the support of his wife Glenna, who is Secretary and Treasurer of the cemetery. Merle is a member of the Cornish United Church of Christ. The church is another recipient of his tireless energy. He has served on many committees, spends countless hours organizing fundraisers to aid in the cost of maintaining 3 church owned buildings, monthly bean & casserole suppers, luncheons, yard sales, church sponsored blood drives, repairing & operating food booths at fundraising events, etc. He is the “go to” person when the church property needs maintenance. Merle is a member of the Ossipee Valley Fair Assn, Past President of the NW Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, member of Friends of Hillside Church, library volunteer – just to name a few. When Merle sees something that needs to be done or someone who needs assistance-he is always there to help. It is hard to keep up with Merle’s energy and vision for a better community!
