An inspiring and rewarding day for over 50 Rotarians who distributed 1000 books and read to children in five elementary schools on Monday! Visit The Hawkeye website to see more pictures!
Something for everyone! Bidding on local and fine art! Food and wine at the event. An auction to support literacy and youth activites in the Burlington area. For tickets call Matt Rinker at 750-5156 or email@example.com or visit the Burlington Art Center. Tickets also available at the door.
Judith Mansheim, daughter of Ed and Amanda Mansheim, poses for a cute picture on the Rotary bench at Dankwardt Park Saturday. They were out enjoying the weather, park, and Rotary playground. Rotary has built many playgrounds in Burlington. Look for a sign or bench like this which recognizes Rotary's contributions in the community.
Supporting literacy is one of our many missions. We are committed to children and the importance of reading and learning. Burlington Rotary gives a book to each child to take home and keep. This month was a lot of fun with glow in the dark pages that prompted a mini-field trip!
Once again, our Annual Rotary Auction was a big success! We raised over $3,000 dollars for the Burlington Rotary Service Foundation Scholarship Program!! A big thank you to those Rotarians that gave so generously!! Thank you to our auctioneers, Joel Sieren, Jerry Derby, and Rob Ritson!
We are deeply sadden by Sharon Ford's passing. Her welcoming smile and friendly hello was always a warm greeting at each Rotary meeting. She worked tirelessly at many Rotary events and was always grateful for the books Rotary provided to the Headstart children. She was a true leader and class act in every way. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this difficult time. We will miss her.
Rotarian Kay Weiss and Community Coordinator, Jacque Crable along with many other community members will be volunteering their time at the Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner at BHS. Hundreds of meals will be served or delivered to any one who would enjoy a delicious meal. Jacque and others have been serving over 25,000 meals and 2,000 turkeys since 1995!!
Thank you Tim Lundgren! We are happy to support the Coats For Kids project!!
