Bell Ringers Needed!
The Salvation Army needs your help more than ever this year!  The Salvation Army is a vital presence in our communities during emergencies, but also helps individuals with emergency assistance throughout the year. The Salvation Army receives requests from many families and we need your help, more than ever, to give that support to local families.

Bell ringers are needed at three locations in the Wahpeton-Breckenridge area: Wahpeton Econofoods, Breckenridge Econofoods, and Wahpeton Walmart.

With COVID-19, we are asking that ringers are limited to 1 or 2 from the same household.  Masks are required, and hand sanitizer and wipes will be provided.

Time slots are in hour increments.  We have it open to ring the bell from 8 a.m.-8 p.m.  The hours of 4-8 p.m. are prime time ringing hours at these locations. This would be a great opportunity for individuals to get involved in the community and help this wonderful program. 

All you need to do is go to the link you would like to sign up with, pick the time slot(s) you would like, then go to the bottom of the page and click signup and submit, then put in your name, email address and telephone number.  That’s it!  You will get a reminder email two days before your scheduled time slot to ring the bell. 


To sign up, please use the following links:

If you signed up for the wrong time or need to cancel, please give us a call at 701-642-7807 or 701-642-7751 and to be taken off the schedule.

The Rotary Club of Wahpeton-Breckenridge is proud to announce support for the Annual 4-Way Test Essay Contest.
The essay can be of any topic, specific or general, that interests the student. The student will apply the principles of the 4-Way test and how it can be applied to express the the view of the student writer.
The contest is open to Juniors and Seniors in high school. Essays must be between 500-1000 words, double-spaced and typewritten. Applicants must include all four principles of the 4-Way Test to be eligible for prizes.  Entrants must attach the signature portion of the attached guideline to acknowledge the principles and contest criteria.
Entries are due to the club by December 4th, 2018 so they can be evaluated by the review committee.
The committee will select 3 essays and locally award 1st Place - $200, 2nd Place - $150 and 3rd Place - $100.  
The first place essay will be submitted to Rotary District 5580 by December 31, 2018 to compete for the Grand Prize of $1,250.
The top three place winners will be invited to read their essays at a Rotary luncheon and are given an opportunity to answer questions about their topic and interest. 
For more information on the contest, or submission details, please see the 2018 guideline on our webpage in the downloadable files section.
On May 8th, 2018, the Rotary Club of Wahpeton Breckenridge hosted the winners of the 4-way essay test.  All high school students in Richland County were invited to participate in this program. Our two winners come from Richland 44 High School:  Kari Ann Sahl and Blake Loomis. The winners are shown with their English teacher, Christy Stenseth.
