Storybook Island Carousel House Ribbon Cutting
Rotarians joined in the celebration of the new carousel house at Storybook Island in May 2019.  Rushmore Rotary pledged $50,000 from sales of Football Books. The Carousel House was constructed at a budget of over $300,000.   The Carousel is one of five historic (formerly traveling) carousels in the US created by Allan Herschell.  The Carousel House is a great addition to the park and will keep the carousel covered and operating year-round.  Thank you to Rotarians Dana Foreman and Janet Kahler for their efforts on this project as well as  local contractors who donated labor and to Connie LeZotte and the SBI staff for all their hard work.  
Rotary  International Conference
Gene Bilodeau attended the Rotary International Conference in Hamburg!  We will be anxious to hear about all the great ideas that come from this conference.
