Congratulations to the lucky winners of the 2019 Big Duck Race! And a huge thank you to all who supported Rotary by purchasing tickets.
Our favorite young man from the Netherlands is returning home after an adventure-packed exchange experience. Let's send him off right; please come to the airport at 7:30 pm Monday, July 1st at Security to say "goodbye, safe travels, and come back soon!"
The morning meeting had the fortunate experience of meeting a fascinating lady - author, nurse, cancer survivor, professional speaker, Flag for Hope Star and RUNNER - wow, does this woman run. She has traversed the country top to bottom and across and back multiple times. She has logged thousands of miles, basically running a marathon almost daily once she gets going. Now she is tackling the Great Land where she will be running from Anchorage to Prudhoe Bay. Her website is www.oneontherun.com for more information and opportunities to support her endeavor.
Julie was awarded this honor for her unselfish commitment to community service both locally and globally. She demonstrate the principles of  "Doing Good" and "Service Above Self" through her profession of bookkeeping as she works with multiple businesses in the Eagle River area, providing free tax preparation to some local military members, as well as a variety of charitable work in Ecuador each year.
Fantastic turnout for the first WAPI Assembly! We had 17 Rotarians and 6 friends and family members come together to build the water purification indicator kits. See below for more details as well as the WAPI photo album for more fun pix.
Despite the delay imposed by the earthquake, the arrival of Santa and the tree lighting at the park was still a wonderful event, full of snow and good cheer. Thank you to all who came to assist Santa, who had to leave his reindeer and sled behind this year. It didn't seem to matter to all the kids who came to tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas, though. Rotarians and their families then gathered at the Gamble's home for a fireside and a spirited gift exchange.
 
 
Melody is all ready to jump right into Rotary activities. Look for her and her family at the Tree Lighting Ceremony where they will be helping Santa, and be sure to welcome and congratulate her at the Fireside at the Gambles after Winter Wonderland on Friday, Nov 30th.
The Lunch Split the Pot has been split! Martin found the elusive 4 of Clubs to take home more than $800. Wow! That should buy lots of turkey.
Eagle River Rotary is happy to induct Brad Carlson during our new member orientation. Thank you to all who braved the icy rain to come out tonight to learn more about Rotary. Thank you to the Gambles for hosting the get-together.
 
 
Congrats to Doug for his  2nd lucky card selection in 3 weeks for the morning split the pot! Someone needs to take this man to Vegas! Meanwhile, the lunch pot grows ever large with only a handful of cards remaining.  Rumor has it is over $1400!
Congrats to Doug for his lucky card selection in the morning split the pot! Don't spend it all in one place.
It was a fun evening at the Inlet Towers as members gathered to celebrate and reminisce about our big milestone of 40 years as a Rotary Club. Thank you, DG Diane for your inspiring words and inducting our newest member, Natelie Columbus-Schiess. We want to say a big thank you, as well, to Mary Ann and Tonya for their hard work in pulling off a successful and festive gala.
 
As a really fun and interesting change of pace, the lunch meeting was held in the Day Room at Station 11 right here in Eagle River. The charming and entertaining Capt Craig Walls was kind enough to spend time educating the members about the the Fire Departments throughout the municipality. If you attended and didn't learn something new or interesting - you weren't listening. Thank you to the great Fire Fighters at Station 11 for allowing us to tour their beautiful building.
Our first annual Bunco Fireside is Mission Accomplished! There was a lot of good-natured competition and laughter as we rattled and rolled our way through three games of the infamous dice game known as Bunco. In the end, Linda won a prize for most Wins, Tom won Most Buncos, Yaro took a prize for the Last Bunco of the Night (which explains the attractive accessories he is wearing), and Tim was the Biggest Loser but went home with excellent prizes, as well, including a Youth Exchange pin that Yaro presented to him. A huge thank you to the Gambles for hosting: it was a fun night full of great food and fellowship. In fact, Yaro enjoyed it so much, he intends to share the game with his friends back in the Netherlands, but he is going to have to provide his own sombrero and necklace...Tonya's not giving up those family heirlooms.
