The Orofino Rotary Club officially inducted  new member, Laura Lazzar into the club.  Laura is sponsored by John Lazzarini and she is an Osteopathic Physician (Retired).  Welcome to Rotary Laura!

 

December 8th Program: Clearwater Historical Society Board members Nick Alberts and Tio Pomponio, accompanied by fellow board members Rodger Colgan and John Schwartz, presented an update on the progress of the new museum.  In addition, to describing the construction of the new building to date, Nick and Tito identified additional artifacts that have been donated to the Society.  These include an actual log camp bunkhouse from the Headquarters, ID area and a windmill. Tito asked for Rotary help to re-glazing the existing windows in the bunkhouse and Mike Riccomini volunteered.  Tito also stated that several of the 40 inch x 25 inch 6 panes window frames were missing and asked that anyone who had access to the type of window frames used in the bunkhouses to contact him.  Tito stated they would like the bunkhouse to be as authentic as possible.  Nick answered the many questions that arose from the full house of members following the presentation.  The Orofino Rotary Club commends the commitment and dedication of the Clearwater Historical Society Board.  Thank you, Nick and Tio, for an informative program.

 

December 15th Program: The Clearwater-Potlatch Timber Protective Association will present a program on CPTA Operations & Responsibilities.  This is an important update in light of the increased prevalence of wildfires in our area and across the west.

Dirty Hands Projects:  Danielle Hardy advised the board that a gravel road has to be built to support heavy equipment that will be needed during construction of the Elementary School Ball Field tiered-seating project.  

The club is continuing to participate with State Hospital North, Kiwanis and the Clearwater Economic Development Council to preserve and enhance the Seven Pines Cemetery.

The club is also investigating ways to assist the Clearwater Memorial Public Library in the demolition of the house next door to make way for the library expansion.   A Silent-Auction of all removal parts of the house is being planned for early February.

Announcements:

The Christmas Party will be held Dec. 16th beginning at 5:00 in the Little Flower Room.  Be sure to call Annie Lozar at 208 476-4906 to confirm what you are bringing if you put  “?” on the sign-up sheet.

The Whittens will be hosting a Caroling Social, December 20 starting at 6:00 pm.  Please bring a finger food to share.  Coffee, tea, cider and mulled wine are provided.  If you’d like something stronger – feel free to BYOB.

The 3rd Annual Catfish Fry will be held Saturday, March 10, 2018.

THANK YOU to: Wayne Olsen, John Goffinet, Charlie Moser, Clancy Howard, who did yeoman’s work both Friday and Saturday loading and unloading for the Little Elf’s Shop.  Also to Mike Hedrick, Jim McCann, Norm and Barb Fitzsimmon who helped on Friday, Amber Hanes-Miller who worked at the shop as a “Little Elf” and Lynn MacEachern who helped with cleaning up on Saturday.
