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.

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!

Rotary district collecting relief funds for Louisiana flood victims
Rotary clubs of District 6200 are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana, USA, earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. Donate to District 6200 disaster relief fund.
