Meeting at Central States Fair
Thank you Central States Fair and fellow Rotarian Ron Jeffries for hosting our Club meeting on August 22nd and updating us on What's Happening at the Fair: Carnival operations, Concerts, Extreme Bronc Riding Event and the many other exhibits and local organizations you partner with to give back to the community, such as Journey Museum (Inflatable Planetarium, Bison Box), Rapid City Public Library(MakerSpace), and Indigenous Peoples Exhibit.
Young Professionals 
Thank you to Rushmore Rotary for co-hosting an evening of networking at Canyon Lake Activity Center with the Rapid City Young Professionals.   Thank you to Bruce Nearhood for organizing and volunteers who participated.  
Storybook Island Celebrated its Birthday
Storybook Island celebrated its 60th Birthday on August 17th.  Rotary initially sponsored the park project after being approached by Merle Gunderson, Rapid City Park's Superintendent.  Both Rotary Clubs (Rapid City and Rushmore) have  a long-standing relationship with this place and members continue to serve on the Board of Directors and continue to support many of the activities that make the "magic happen".  We recently finalized our $50,000 commitment to the Carousel House.
