The Juneau-Gastineau Rotary Club's Annual Bulb Sale Fundraiser is well under way! In fact there are some bulbs that have already sold out. The Lily--Oriental Mix and the Narcissus--Peach Cobbler are gone. There are still many awesome choices left, but hurry before they are gone.

Here is the 2020 selection that will bloom in the spring and summer 2021. There are two garden packages and several A la Carte selections, making it easy to plan a garden with bulbs that compliment each other or add color to your already established garden.

During times of social distancing, we are making it easy for you to order our spring bulbs. Ordering online is still an option. Plus this year a convenient fill-in PDF Order Form that you can complete on your computer, print, then return by mail. Juneau-Gastineau Rotary members are still available to help.  

Orders are filled according to the payment date, so order before your favorites are gone!  Substitutions may need to be made due to crop availability.  Order online before 9/28/2020 or from a Rotarian directly before 10/1/2020. RotaryBulbs.com

 

 

Seven Gastineau Rotarians Zoomed in to participate in a Kiva lend at lunch time.  We made 7 loans, lending $725.00 in Cambodia, Tajikistan, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica.  Our main focus was in the agricultural sector, but did make one loan to a gentleman who was purchasing tools to go into the contracting business in Tajikistan.  And, we inch closer to our goal of lending $100,000 in Kiva putting our frequency of loans and total loan amount into the 99% percentile of Kiva lenders!
The new Thane campground at Mill Creek was completed last week with the help of Park Foundation, Glacier Valley and Juneau-Gastineau Rotary Clubs. Under beautiful Juneau sky’s, crews spent last week setting it up and getting it ready for the first occupant.  The platforms are sturdy and really high quality.
 
 
   
 
Well, that was fun!  Today President Julie conducted the meeting from her dining room table and 34 members were able to get connected and watch Kevin and Kim's presentation about their trip to Project Amigo last month.  Just for fun I took some screen shots of members in the Zoom Room and pictures of members watching the program slides.  Kevin's dialog was amusing and interesting and Kim was able to fill in some other details.  
 
So, my apologies for those I caught unaware in the screen shots!  
 
Stay safe, stay well as we all continue to find ways to have fellowship and carry out our mission of service to our community and our world.

It was a Kiva lend with a Zoom meeting this morning! All from our homes, 9 of us met and made 9 $100 loans. We loaned in Bolivia, Nicaragua, Philippines, Tonga, El Salvador, Cambodia, Paraguay and India. We chose a welding shop, a tile maker, a furniture maker, 2 weavers, a sanitary latrine, a general store, a farmer and a pizzeria in Paraguay!

Very good progress toward our $100,000 goal.
