From left to right are John Lloyd, Kurt Johnson, Jeff Smith, Spud Ericson (filling in for Linda), and Todd Allen. Welcome!
 
 

 
 
The Fire & Ice Ball in only it's second year was a sellout and from the photos one can see it was an awesome event. This is our main fundraiser for the year and all of the net proceeds go to local and international organizations of need. To date our Rotary Club charitable donations have exceeded over one million dollars! If you missed it this year put next year on your calendar.There are many to thank from our hard working committee to those who support us by attending and going home happy and tired. We extend a huge thank you to our donors. The two major prizes were one week in the Grand Mayan Resort In Puerto Vallarta courtesy of Vidanta Vacations, a diamond ring from Gaylene's and our thanks also to Artone Manufacturing who donated $500 to the winner of the trip to help with flight expenses. WOW! Gary & Nancy Padak are going to Mexico and Peggy Sweeney is sporting a new diamond ring. Those who contributed basket  items to take a chance on were: Spectrum  Eyecare, Sharon & Bob Hamilton, Michael Inman, Helen Bigg, J B Liquors, Paula Holmes, Lisa Yaggie, Christy Brecht and Andy & Lisa Goodell. Our thanks also to Rob Sigler Photography, our event photographer for the use of some of his photos.  We share the fun with you!

Korean sailor makes waves for End Polio Now
Enjoying calm winds and peaceful Pacific waters, Seung Jin Kim dove off his 43-foot sailboat, the Arapani, to swim with some dolphins nearby. The serenity that day near the equator was a stark contrast to the 60 mph winds and 23-foot waves he had to fight around Cape Horn, the southern tip of South America. But Kim, a veteran sailor and member of the Rotary Club of Seokmun, in Chungcheongnam, Korea, expected such challenges when he set out in mid-October on a 25,600-mile journey around the world. In addition to fulfilling a lifelong dream, Kim is using the trip to raise awareness and funds...
Monrovia club’s Ebola fight not finished
After the first cases of Ebola reached Liberia's capital, Monrovia, last June, local Rotary members feared that the city's limited health care system wouldn't be able to contain the highly infectious, often-deadly disease. Those fears were realized when infections quickly multiplied, underscoring the speed with which Ebola can spread in an urban center. It was the first time the hemorrhagic fever had threatened a major city since it erupted in West Africa last March. Now, after months of crisis-level response, and with the number of new cases declining, club members are looking to the long...
Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
San Francisco club reveals formula for growth and retention of members
Members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening meet at a wine bar after work, share a social outing, and promote all their activities on social media like Meetup and Facebook. As the first evening club in the city, it has attracted many young professionals from Silicon Valley tech firms whose work schedules keep them from joining a more traditional club that meets for breakfast or lunch. But more than that, the evening format has helped the club grow by 30 percent since it received its charter in mid-2013. Danielle Lallement, who was its charter president, says the club has been...
Colorado joins Kosovo club to restore sanitation in blighted local schools
Blighted schools in the mountain city of Peja in western Kosovo are a reminder of the ethnic strife and war that ravaged this area in the 1990s. To restore ruined sanitation facilities in some of those schools, local Rotary members recently partnered with their counterparts from Colorado, USA. Though residents have been slowly rebuilding the city's infrastructure after years of neglect under earlier governments, most resources are going to improve roads, rebuild homes, and create new businesses. Little money remains to restore the schools. As a result, students have fallen ill, stayed home...
