Rotary provides support for
Shelter Box International Aid
 
Eagle River Area Rotary and Interact Club (Rotarian service organization for ages 12-18)  have each donated $1,000 each for two Shelterboxes. ShelterBox provides emergency shelter and vital supplies to support communities around the world overwhelmed by disaster and humanitarian crisis. ShelterBox aid is tailored to a disaster but typically includes a disaster relief tent for a family, thermal blankets and groundsheets, water storage and purification equipment, solar lamps, cooking utensils, a basic tool kit, mosquito nets and children’s activity pack. When ShelterBoxes are delivered, the standard box weighs 120 lbs. and has approximate dimensions of 33" x 24" x 22". They are sealed and banded for transit and security. Since ShelterBox was founded, they have responded to over 240 disasters and humanitarian crises in more than 90 different countries and provided emergency aid for well over one million people.

Winter Wonderland on December 5th
 
 
For the past nine years, our Rotary Club has partnered with the CER Chamber and ER/C Parks & Recreation to jointly host the community tree lighting at Rotary Park in Town Center. This year’s date is December 5th and volunteer support is needed for the following:
 
  • Reindeer Handlers – Be strong and able to keep sharp antlers out of little kids eyes
  • Torch Bearers – To lead the Processional of Santa and his reindeer
  • Crowd / Snow Fence Volunteers – To help unroll snow fencing in front of the processional to create a physical barrier separating the crowds from the deer antlers.
  • Canned Food Collection Table – Man the table and collect cash donations and canned for the ER Food Pantry
 
The Elementary School Choirs have been invited to sing and free horse drawn sleigh rides are available from 6 until 8:30pm. Santa and Reindeer will process in at 7pm.  A number of businesses will hand  out warm drinks and goodies and the senior center will provide soup – all at no cost. This is truly a night of fun and charity as we welcome in the holiday season.  Following the chilly outdoor extravaganza, the Gambles will host a fire side at their house. So mark your calendars for December 5th and let us know how you might help make this another successful event!

The Boys and Girls Club service project got underway this past Saturday, August 23 rd,  and a lot was completed. With many hands on deck, members jumped in with lots of paint giving a fresh look to the Club. Closets got cleaned and Rotarians re-constructed the boxes that cover the baseboard heat.  It was a busy day and a good day of fellowship and helping our local youth programs.  There are more upcoming opportunities to work on this project as well as many skills that will be needed.
 
Stay tuned for more announcements!
