News of Boise Southwest Rotary
Rotarian Dick Cummings was awarded a Paul Harris +3 last month by District Rotary Foundation Chair Marianne Barker and Boise SW President Janet Worthington. Each additional Paul Harris Award signifies a new contribution of $1000 to the Rotary Foundation. A big thank you to Dick for his generosity and support of Rotary programs.
Wink & Resa Jones were recently honored as our newest Major Donors to Rotary. Wink is a long time member of Boise Southwest (over 30 years) and an avid supporter of Rotary. Presenting the award was Marianne Barker, Terry Bowman and Peter Robbins. Congratulations to the Jones' and thank you for your generosity!
Boise Southwest Rotary announced a new program in August -- Rotarian of the Month -- and member Kyle Woods was recognized by the Club Board for his dedication and continuing pursuance of needed programs for students at Whittier Elementary School. Missy Goode, Strategic Partnership Coordinator for the Boise Public School District, praised Kyle for being a big advocate for Whittier -- "he worked to continue programs and start programs for every grade level: 3rd grade swimming lessons, 4th grade BSU tour, 5th grade Christmas Lunch, and 6th grade graduation party. These were great enrichment programs for the kids. The BSU campus tour and science program was amazing. He is a pleasure to work with and his heart is for the community. Please join me in thanking Kyle Woods, Rotarian of the Month!"
Earlier this month, Treasure Valley Rotary Clubs worked to water seedlings planted this year at Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve, an old gravel pit, that through the efforts of local and national organizations, is being transformed into a wildlife preserve. Our guest speaker on August 22nd, Laurie Zuckerman, Rotary District 5400 Stewardship Chair, talked about Rotary's tree projects and environmental work and expectations for next year. Pictured above are several Rotarians involved in the project, including our own Janet Worthington on the far right.
