‘Tis the Season of Giving: Bring Your Gifts!
Santa’s list is long this year. Four-year-old Jason wants a Little People’s House. Meghan, 8, wants a snap bracelet.  Six-year-old Tony prefers anything with Batman.
The children who live temporarily at Watson Children’s Shelter in Missoula have written their letters to Santa. Rotarians get to play Santa’s helpers this holiday to make sure the kids have their wishes granted.
Nicole Michelotti has “wish cards” for each of the 24 children now residing at the Watson Children’s Shelter. We ask that Rotarians select a card and purchase a gift for that child. Wrap the gift and make sure the child’s name appears on it. Return the wish card along with the gift(s) to the holiday party on December 20 at Missoula Country Club.
If you are unable to attend the party, please deliver the gift at a weekly Rotary luncheon meeting or contact Nicole directly for pick-up or delivery.
You may purchase more than one gift for the child, if you like. Be sure the gifts are age appropriate and not edible, please.
The Rotary Club of Missoula has a long history of support for the Watson Children’s Shelter that has served hundreds of children and families since it was founded. Let’s help make the holiday exciting for these children.
October was Polio Plus awareness month.  The Missoula Rotary club along with the Missoula Sunrise club worked together to raise money for Polio Plus by making “Apple pies for Polio”.   They made 79 pies $3,825.00 + $7,650 Gates Foundation Match = $11,475.00 was raised in pie sales.   We also had received donations of $800 and able to match that in Paul Harris contributions as well equaling another $2,400.   Nicole Michelotti (noon club) also raised money by putting out a large jar at our rotary meeting asking for “Pennies for Polio”.    Curt Belts is a Sunrise Rotarian and he peeled apples and Loretta Belts (noon Club) baked them.  This was a truly successful fundraiser.

We were fortunate last week to have Bob Ward share about the Capital Christmas Tree coming from Montana.   Here is a picture of the banner on the side of the tree.

We also had some lovely ballet dancers from the Rocky Mountain Ballet Company who are performing in Washington at the tree lighting ceremony.  Here are some pictures from their dancing at our club luncheon.   Here's a link to their January event "Ballet Beyond Borders" competition in January that you don't want to miss.
