Thank you to Jason Perrault, CEO of Perrault Farms and Yakima Chief Ranches, for coming to share your insight into the hop industry. Truly appreciate your knowledge!!!
 
Thank you Lisa Barrett, Care Navigator, with the Alzheimer's Association for coming to discuss the 10 warning signs of Alzheimer's.

Thank you to Liza Kapuza and the YWCA for coming to Rotary and giving a very eye opening program.

The YWCA is such a great asset for our community. 

The Toppenish Rotary meeting has been cancelled for today (February 12, 2019) due to the inclement weather and poor driving conditions. Stay safe and warm. See you next week!
The Toppenish Rotary held their Family Holiday Party on Sunday, January 27th.  A great time was had by all.  A paper-rock-scissors tournament was the highlight.  The championship round consisted of Mike and Tristin battling it out, with the winner, Tristin, walking away with a $30 prize.  A big thanks to Brenda and Laura who planned the event and to Mike and Laura for opening up their beautiful home and hosting the event.  
Thank you Dale Funk, for giving us 2 great years as our Rotary President.  Your push on getting us involved with grants has really instigated more involvement in the community and beyond.   We can't thank you enough.
Congratulations Father John Shaw for receiving your Paul Harris Foundation Award. Also, we wish you well and will miss you very much at Rotary. You have been a true blessing to our Rotary group over the years and you will be truly missed. Come visit us when you can! You are always welcome.
Congratulations goes to Walt Wegener!  He was awarded the 2018 Change Maker Award at this year's District Conference.  Thanks to all of Walt's hard work and expertise, we were awarded a Rotary Grant that will assist in the remodeling of the Park & Rec's concession stand at the Toppenish Pool.  Walt always volunteers to help out when needed and he is a true asset to our Rotary Club.  Thanks Walt, for all you do!  Well deserved.
This year's conference was a huge success.  Rotarians experienced a new style of conference that was informative and yet they had time to network and enjoy each other's company in between sessions.  The food was wonderful.  Friendships were rekindled as well as new ones were formed.  The bikers experienced a "little rain", while the wine tasters, walkers and golfers escaped the rain.  The Youth Exchange students worked hard in downtown Prosser on Friday and they were having fun swimming and eating afterwards.  Home hosting was phenomenal as always.  Most of all, the district conference speakers motivated us as  they reaffirmed, that what we do as Rotarians, is making our communities and our World a safer, healthier and happier place.  
Left to Right:  Devin Baum, Walt Wegener, John Cerna and Chuck Stegeman represented the Toppenish Rotary at this year's Dollars For Scholars golf tournament.  The event took place at the Mt. Adams Golf Course on Friday, May 11th.  They took 2nd place.  Way to go team!!!
This year's luncheon was a fabulous success.  Our big thanks goes out to all of you who helped, supported and/or attended the luncheon.  We had 220 people who attended this year and they were served a scrumptious lunch that was catered in by "Catering Creations By Toni" (Yakima).  The 50/50 winner won over $350 and there was $550 given out in BINGO prize money.  Everyone left with a rose and many lucky winners walked away with great raffle prizes.  We want to thank everyone who came and everyone who helped make this year's event a huge success.  If you didn't make it this year, please plan to join us next year!  Check out all of the pictures on our Photo Page.
Toppenish Rotary is the Steward of the new Little Free Library. Check it out.  It is on 2nd Ave along side the walking track of Pioneer Park. The concept is you can take a book to read and when you do, you put a book in to replace the one you take. If you have any book donations, please contact Toppenish Rotary at topprotary226@gmail.com or via Facebook. We are looking for books written in either English or Spanish, as well as books for all ages. Thanks!
