We're pleased to recognize Dana Kauffman as Rotarian of the month for December! Dana coordinated our Annual MSTI Christmas Project again this year, with the organization of Rotary club volunteers, food and gift donations, and delivery of boxes to Treasure Valley families identified by Mountain States Tumor Institute during this holiday season. The project was very successful in brightening the lives of over 15 families just before Christmas and demonstrating the Rotary Motto of "Service Above Self". Thanks to Dana and his team for making it happen!
Each year, Boise Southwest Rotary provides Christmas packages to recipients in the Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI) project. Included are food and gifts for each family member which are packaged up by Rotarians at the Boise Centre and then personally delivered to the family on December 15. Pictured is Rotarian Wink Jones helping to pack gifts on that Saturday morning.
Rotary President Janet Worthington presented a check in December for $1000 from the Boise Southwest Rotary Foundation to representatives of the Girl Scouts of Silver Sage for their Visions programs designed to help girls in need of support. Accepting the check was Ali Escalante (left), Grant Management Specialist, Joanne Taylor (center) Chief Development Officer and a member of Boise Southwest Rotary, and Karla Watts (right), Visions Mentor.
                          
Boise Southwest treated some 80 5th grade students from Whittier School at our annual Christmas Lunch held December 7 at the Riverside Hotel. Included were children and grandchildren of Rotary members, and a visit by Santa and Mrs Claus was a highlight of the event, with gifts for every girl and boy. The 5th graders in turn entertained all with Christmas songs of the season.
