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.

Rotaract award winners celebrated for their life-changing projects
The village of Kumbharwadi is one of many in a drought-prone region near Mumbai, India. Until recently, its residents had access to only one well with drinkable water. During the summer months, the well runs dry, and the women and girls of the village travel three to four hours a day to search for water. Enter Project Boond, undertaken by a Rotaract club, a Rotary club, and the Watershed Organization Trust to provide clean drinking water and sanitation facilities in Kumbharwadi. Nikunj Pherwani, 2013-14 president of the Rotaract Club of Hassaram Rijhumal College of Commerce and Economics in...
Young writers get published with the help of Rotary
In Jamaica, 11-year-old Jordan Allwood reads his classmates a story about a lonely puppy who finds a new family. The puppy grows into a big dog, enjoys walks along the beach, and survives a frightening autumn day when he is caught in a trap before being rescued by his family. Jordan's story is one of hundreds that were written by children ages 7-11 for a writing contest organized by the Rotary E-Club of the Caribbean 7020 and supported by clubs in 10 Caribbean nations. The best stories, including Jordan's, were published in "The Butterfly StoryBook," produced by the club and sold through...
Clubs breaking down barriers to clean water in Ghana
When Marty Hatala, a member of the Rotary Club of Boaz, Alabama, first traveled to Ghana in 2010 to volunteer at a local orphanage, she saw how local communities struggled to find clean water. Though at least 80 percent of the country's population has access to improved water sources, according to UNICEF, 5 million Ghanaians still use water from unsafe sources. That leaves a significant part of the country's population susceptible to a range of diseases. Worldwide, one out of every five deaths among those under the age of five is caused by water-related diseases. Hatala's experiences in Ghana...
Secrets of a successful crowdsourcing campaign
In case you haven't heard, a man raised nearly $60,000 to make potato salad as a spoof on a popular fundraising site. If he can do that, a campaign to raise money for feeding hungry children or building a school in a war-torn country should be a snap, right? Wrong. The Internet is littered with humanitarians struggling to raise the money and gather the resources for projects that could make a positive impact in the world. So, what is the secret to a successful crowdsourcing campaign? It's simple, really: make it easy to give. Here are some ways you can make it easy for supporters to back your...
Rotary supports WHO director-general’s public health emergency for polio
In May, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the international spread of polio a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), and issued a set of recommendations to all polio-impacted countries. On 31 July, the situation was reassessed and the Director-General has declared polio remains a public health emergency. Several factors played into this decision, including: Both Pakistan and Equatorial Guinea have exported the virus internationally since May. Polio thrives in areas compromised by conflict. The unfortunate reality is that there are...
