The Chehalis Rotary Club recently hosted a school supply  shopping night for children in the Chehalis School District who are considered homeless.  Forty kindergarten through 12th grade students took  advantage of the opportunity to pick out their own supplies.  On average,   each child spent fifty dollars and left the Chehalis Walmart with a big smile  and ready to start a new school year.  Additional funds will be expended throughout the year to pay for fees and other items that would be difficult for families to cover.  With a total of $5,000.00 available, it is expected that up to 100 students will receive resources to help them with their education expenses this school year.

 

Fundraising proceeds from the Chehalis Rotary Corn Booth and Golf Ball Drop (both held at the SWW Fair), along with a Rotary District 5020 matching grant were used to fund this event.

Once again, the Chehalis Rotary Corn Booth at the SWW Fair proved to be a profitable endeavor for our club.  Combined with the 2nd annual golf ball drop and a District 5020 matching grant, we have earned enough seed money to fund back to school shopping for homeless children and scholarships for higher education.

At the first annual Chehalis Rotary Golf Ball Drop on Saturday, August 18, 600+ golf balls were dropped from the Lewis County Public Works Manlift truck on the compacted dirt surface of the fairground grandstand arena.   For just a fleeting moment, it appeared to be snowing in August!  The balls that landed closest to the marker were:
1st place winner (of $1,000): Fred Rapp, 9 3/4 inches from marker
2nd place winner (of $500): Melody Bradley, 10 1/4 inches
3rd place (of $250):  Mark Schweisow, 13 inches
4th place (West Coast Bank Golf Basket): Lois Gueck, 16 inches
5th place (Security State Bank $50 Gift Certificate): Barbara Greatwood, 16 3/4 inches

With a fresh coat of paint and many other improvements, the corn booth looked better than ever at the recent Southwest Washington Fair!   Our members, their families and friends of Rotary really stepped up to cover shifts and do all of the many chores necessary to ensure a successful operation.
 

 
 
Even though the sun was not shining, it was a beautiful day for Twin Cities Youth Football Association when the Rotary Foundation presented them with a check for $29,000.  This, along with other donations, has allowed for the work to begin on the long needed project of making the field behind Olympic School in Chehalis a community recreation site.Image
 

 
 

ImageThe Centralia-Chehalis Chamber of Commerce has announced that this year's Grand Marshals for the 62nd Annual Santa Parade will be Jim & Suzi Vander Stoep.  Both have been valuable members of our community for years and are being honored for their service.  Jim has been a rotarian for 57 years, serving as the Chehalis Rotary president in 1959-60.

Nigeria sees no wild polio cases for one year
Today marks one year since Nigeria last reported a polio case caused by wild poliovirus, putting the country on the brink of eradicating the paralyzing disease. The last case was reported on 24 July 2014 in the northern state of Kano. If no cases are reported in the coming weeks, the World Health Organization is expected to remove Nigeria from the list of countries where polio is endemic, leaving just two: Afghanistan and Pakistan. Nigeria is the last polio-endemic country in Africa. The continent is poised to reach its own first full year without any illness from the virus on 11 August. “...
Out of tragedy, some people create something good
From the August 2015 issue of The Rotarian What's the worst that could happen? For most of us, that's a simple question. We might be late for a train. We might miss out on a promotion, or even lose a job. But for some, the worst is unimaginably worse. An unfortunate few endure what Ani Kalayjian calls "true trauma." War. Fire. Flood. A daughter disappears. A son contracts Ebola. When faced with such disasters, "people feel anger, guilt, sadness, frustration – feelings that can poison the body and spirit," says Kalayjian, a trauma specialist at Columbia University. "Trauma survivors may think...
