Scary Hairy Fashion Show
October 29th from 9 - 11 am
Bear Creek Dog Park
This event was the brain child of Michaela Smith! People will enter their dogs into the contest for a $5 fee, and all proceeds will go to benefit All Breed Rescue and Training. Event details are on Facebook if you search "Scary Hairy Fashion Show." Please join the event page and then share, share, share!
An update from Prime last week: Maggie talked to Zeezo's, and they will be donating a $40 gift card that can be used as a prize for the event. Yay Zeezo's!
If anyone knows how to get ahold of a red carpet for the dogs to walk down, that would be great. We will also need a sound system to play music and do announcements. We will need volunteers for the day off as well as as many entries into the contest as we can get! So please let Michaela or me know if you can make it on the day of or if you can contribute in any other way.
Michaela, if you would like to add anything else, please feel free to reply all!
Palmer Art Show
December 2nd and 3rd (time is TBD)
Palmer High School
The Palmer Interact Club has been tasked with raising $15,000 that will go towards the water project in Nicaragua. They will be doing a Walk For Water sometime next year but came up with the idea of having an art show at the end of this year to raise money for the cause. Palmer students will donate artwork, and it will be available for purchase at the art show. There will also be baskets for purchase in a silent auction format.
The students are feeling a little daunted by the $15,000 amount, so let's have a great showing of support at this event! Carol Bach had the idea of making a basket full of art supplies for the silent auction, so Rotary will be donating that. If anyone would like to donate artwork themselves or knows anyone who would like to do something for the event, please let me know.
I made an announcement about this at the last Classic meeting and will try to announce several more times leading up to December. Dr. Bach, Judy Casey, and I will be periodically attending the Palmer Interact meetings, so I will keep everyone posted on future details.
The North Colorado Springs Rotary Club is looking for a few more volunteers for their upcoming Ethics program at Doherty High School on Monday October 24 and Tuesday October 25. The Ethics Program uses the Rotary Four-Way Test to instill ethical principals in the students.
