Have you ever wanted to ride a big Dozer?  Well here's your chance!
The Kalispell Rotary Noon and Daybreak Clubs are excited to continue planning for the 2nd annual “Dig Rotary Day” - a fun-filled event the whole community will “dig.” The fall 2020 date was postponed because of COVID-19 and is now scheduled for June 2021. So watch here for updates, plan to pack up the family, and get ready for a great day at the junction of Hwy 93 and Rose Crossing! Participants will have the thrill of exploring and getting hands on with heavy construction equipment such as excavators, graders, and bulldozers. Sponsorship details here .
The Board met and recommended to the Contributions Committee that the Rotary Club of Kalispell provide a Memorial Day lunch to the Flathead COVID-19 Emergency Shelter, which provides space for families and individuals to shelter in place in accordance with public health recommendations. With help from Women Who Wine, 50 meals from Rotary Corporate Member Shawna and Willie Steele and their DeSoto Grille were delivered to the Shelter for a memorable day of honoring those who gave their all for our freedom.   
The Club took time to honor its own at our regular meeting. Custom made caricatures were given to Mark Rohweder and Scott Williams for their "above and beyond Service Above Self."
Scott has led the highly visible and impactful Youth Rotary Basketball program for our club for Twenty-Two Years. This program serves up to 1000 annually and is the principal entry-level basketball program in the Flathead Valley. Mark Rohweder is the visionary and Chair for the Great Bear Festival. 2019 was the 3rd Annual festival and netted local clubs $50,000 for Rotary projects. Well done, Rotarians!
