Will Duke and Amy Federko recently volunteered and participated in an exciting program offered in Blaine County School District called CHOICES.  It first involved intense training both at home and in the school.  Then, for two days, Will and Amy, along with other community members, offered an interactive decision making workshop that empowers teens to achieve academic success in pursuit of their career and life aspirations.  While in life, there are some things we do not have choices about - our eye color, our birth order in our family, our height, our race, our born gender - most other things we do have an opportunity to make a choice about.
 
In two hour long sessions, Will and Amy and other volunteer adults took students through real world exercises on academic self-discipline, time and money management, and goal setting.
 
The teens learn quickly, that despite their current status in school, with work, with friendships, home life and so on - they do have many opportunities to make decisions and choices that will help their future.
 
A testimonial from the program.  "Many students at high school feel that they cannot succeed in life.  CHOICES shows them that their achievement in school has a direct relationship with their jobs after school and their future in general."

Janine Bear and Maggie Howard led the Rotarian "quackers" by chairing this year's event.  Amy Federko was TOP DUCK sales person landing her the opportunity to support an organization of her choice with a donation from the Rotary Club - Two Hearts North 4-H Horse Program.  Blaine County Search and Rescue made fantastic partners once again.  The Club will be thrilled to support that group again with proceeds from the race.  THANKS to our sponosors and the entire community!
The Ketchum Sun Valley Rotary Club has been busy this summer with "Service Above Self" events that have entertained local residents and visitors to the Sun Valley Area.  Saturday June 21st, the Club put on it's first Annual BrewFest led by Rotarians, Holden Morgan and David Patrie.  Ketchum Town Square had nearly 500 folks enjoying the hops and food!  On Saturday, July 26th, the Club helped long time member, Bob Stone, with the 6th Annual Sun Valley Road Rally.  Everyone put the pedal to the metal to help raise awareness and funds for the Drug Coalition.  And of course, everyone knows about the Duck Race.  August 31st marked the 18th Anniversary with 10,000 ducks dumped into the Wood River off the Warm Springs bridge.  Watch for an upcoming news story for my details on the Duck Race and the lucky winners!
