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.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
Member Spotlight: The book on Brad Rubini
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian When Brad Rubini was reading a bedtime story to his seven-year-old daughter, Claire, she asked him why he was reading the words wrong. “I’m dyslexic, so I thought I was reading the words right,” recalls Rubini, a past president of the Rotary Club of Toledo, Ohio. After he explained his problem, she began to read to him on most nights instead. “She was a voracious reader and storyteller. She was always telling stories, even when she was a toddler,” he says. Three years later, while Claire was away at summer camp, she died unexpectedly as a result of a...
