Our own President Lucy Smith joined 
Rotarians and friends of Rotary from around the world November 18 in Tucson for the annual Ride To End Polio.  District 5500 hosted and shared this information:
"Since its inception, the ride has generated  $36 million for Rotary’s efforts to End Polio Now, enough money to buy tens of millions of vaccinations, protecting countless children worldwide from this terrible disease."
We were surprised by some Travelling Troubadours from the Daybreak Club to celebrate Veterans' Day at our November 9 meeting. Tom Esch played guitar, and Mark Flatau sang with backup from Cayla Johnson and Mike Foster. They delivered a heart stirring rendition of God Bless the USA as we honored our Rotarians who served and all who have served this great country. Tom wrote "We love your club. What a great program. I loved the whale pictures and learning about our schools. Your club has always featured students from the high school and the honor students were impressive," and Mark added "It was our pleasure to come and visit.  A lot of fun too."

The girls' season is ending, and the boys are ready to go in January. We anticipate a lot of interest this year, so please consider sponsoring a team to help Rotary Basketball reach as many as possible. For $125, you or your company can give a team a chance to develop teamwork, physical, and social skills, AND have a lot of fun. Your name is listed as a team sponsor and on team shirts, so it is also a very cost effective promotional tool for any business. It's the holiday season; consider sponsoring a team in someone's name...perfect for that hard to shop for loved one. Please contact Patricia Hulla,, if you would like to sponsor a Boys' Rotary Basketball Team this year.

What is Rotary Basketball?

Rotary Basketball is the principal entry-level basketball program in the Flathead Valley. We anticipate between 800 and 1,000 youngsters will participate in the program this year. Please visit the Kalispell Rotary Basketball Website to register or to get additional information.

3rd and 4th graders have one practice per week, arranged by Coaches as conveniently as possible, and one game per week (Saturdays). The officiating is user friendly, the coaching is fundamental, and the goal is to create an enjoyment for the game. 5th graders get a little more basketball, alternating between one game and one practice one week, and two games (Tuesday evenings and Saturdays) and one practice the alternating week.

6th graders get still more basketball, playing two games per week (Thursday evenings and Saturdays), and one practice per week, and will conclude their session with a double elimination tournament with two officials, a clock, and all the trimmings of big-time basketball.

The cost is shown below. Every child receives a shirt, coaches, gyms, good instruction, good company, good sportsmanship, and lots of basketball.

Regular Registration: $40.00 per child

AFTER 12/22/17 NO Registrations will be accepted unless space on a team exists and then placement will occur on an as needed basis only.

Children will be contacted by their coach before their first week of practice, the week of January 8th.  The games will begin on Thursday, January 18th for 6th grader teams and Saturday January 20th for all grade levels.
