Rockland Rotary Club’s Doug Curtis Jr., has been nominated as Rotary District 7790’s governor for 2021-2022, one of Rotary’s highest leadership honors. Curtis owns and operates Edward Jones on Main Street in Rockland. He and his wife, Ferolyn, are Rotarians of many years, having served in numerous roles and traveled worldwide to South Africa, Mexico and the Dominican Republic in service to Rotary’s global humanitarian missions.

A retired Army veteran of 30 years, Curtis was our nation’s spokesperson during Operation Provide Comfort in Silopi, Turkey, the humanitarian mission to deliver the Kurdish people safely out of the mountains in Northern Iraq in 1991.

Avid sports fans, Curtis and his wife were original founders of the Tiger Football Committee Inc., a nonprofit launched in 1993 with four other Rockland community members, and Doug became its first president. This committee saved Rockland Tiger football. While no longer in existence under its original name, the committee proved to be the foundation for many changes to the Rockland football program and the state of Maine.

The Curtises live in Rockland.
