The Juneau-Gastineau Rotary Club would like to thank all of our friends and neighbors everywhere for your support. And the effort really paid off. Splashes of purple, white and yellow crocus are everywhere. Now, we are working hard behind the scenes to bring you an awesome selection for our annual FALL Bulb Sale. Bulbs will be available for sale online starting August 1, 2020.

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.
