Gillette Evening Rotary's Rotary Ball.
We have a fun country band this year and a $25,000 cash giveaway.
Tickets will be available soon!

Every third grade student in Campbell County School District will be presented with
his or her own personal copy of a dictionary. Today, Rotarians Dr. Joe Lawrence (CCSD Board Trustee)
and Mr. Dan Barks delivered dictionaries to students of Mrs. Misty Austin and Ms. Jodi Darling at
Meadowlark Elementary School. The first thing the students did was to write their names in their new books.
Deliveries to other schools are scheduled in the near future, so be watching for more pictures of happy,
grateful children and staff.

Gillette Evening Rotary presented a check for $63,000 last week to the local Rotary Foundation. Shown below are some of the local Rotary members, Foundation board members and scholarship recipients.


Rotarians helped out at the Festival of Trees on Friday November 16th.

A great time was had serving lunch to the crowd from the Senior Center and enjoying the Chamber Singers among other entertainment that after noon.

Each Gillette Rotary is the catalyst for delivering dictionaries to all of Campbell Counties third graders.  Here Nate Kintz of Gillette Rotary is joined by Energy Rotary's Chris Shelledy at Sunflower Elementary!



Back in November the members of Gillette Rotary were very generous and helped Rita Treichler and the mom’s, wives, and girlfriends stuff over 1400 stockings so the men and woman of the Marine 22nd Expeditionary Unit would have some small bit of Christmas this year.

The stockings were stuffed, shipped and finally delivered!

Virtual reality films bring new dimension to polio fight
At this year’s World Polio Day celebration in Atlanta, Rotary is harnessing the power of virtual reality technology to build empathy and inspire action in our fight to eradicate polio. Rotary, with support from the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, produced a virtual reality film that tells the story of Alokita, a young adult who suffered paralysis from polio as a child growing up in India, which has been polio-free since 2011. “When you open your eyes and see a different environment around you, you relate to the subject on a visceral, personal level,” says Vincent Vernet, direct of digital and...
Rotary Day at UN highlights role of business in building a better world
From the United Nations’ earliest days in the aftermath of World War II, the organization’s humanitarian mission has always dovetailed with Rotary’s efforts to administer aid and build peace. This year’s Rotary Day at the United Nations, 12 November, will highlight the role businesses can play in that collaboration as we work toward a more just and equitable world. The theme of this year’s gathering at UN headquarters in New York City, “Responsible Business, Resilient Societies,” recognizes Rotary’s role at the intersection of commerce and cause. As leaders in their professions and...
ShelterBox prepares for Mosul refugees
Today marked the start of the battle to take control of Mosul back from the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS. The city is the group's last major stronghold in Iraq. But humanitarian aid agencies have known about the military offensive, giving them an unusual opportunity to prepare for the crisis. "It is rare for the world to get early warning of a vast human catastrophe," says Chris Warham, chief executive of ShelterBox. "The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees issued a paper in July saying this would likely be the biggest humanitarian crisis of the year — and we better get...
Skydivers raise thousands for polio eradication
The first time Noel Jackson jumped out of a plane at 14,000 feet, it had nothing to do with raising money for polio eradication. The Michigan dentist had received a gift certificate to go skydiving from his staff because they knew he was into adventure. “It is definitely a defining moment,” says Jackson, a member of the Rotary Club of Trenton, Michigan, USA, of that first jump, done in tandem strapped to a professional skydiver. “The rush of the free fall is beyond anything I have ever experienced before. Just the speed and acceleration is unbelievable. You don’t even have time to figure out...
Rotary and ShelterBox on the ground in Haiti
Even as parts of Haiti were still recovering from a catastrophic 2010 earthquake, Hurricane Matthew tore through the impoverished island country 4 October, leaving hundreds dead and many more homeless. The Category 4 storm affected an estimated 330,000 people in Haiti, including 6,400 who were moved to temporary shelters. Extensive damage to main bridges and other transportation networks have left some areas cut off and vulnerable. Torrential rains have resulted in flooding and landslides. And contaminated water supplies threaten to lead to a surge in cholera cases and other waterborne...
