Here's What's Happening in Our Club
CJ and Other Rotarians_CJHuston photo_20220502In April, I flew to Ecuador with five other Rotarians from southwest Idaho to see how some grant-funded water projects were coming along and how Rotary might help with other projects. Overall, I think every Rotarian should take such a trip to see what global grants can do and how much they are appreciated by the recipients.
EGC 25th Birthday_LGerber_20220512“The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry” – Robert Burns

And that Burns' quote best characterizes my year as president of the Eagle-Garden City Rotary Club! We had challenges that we have overcome or are overcoming, and yet we committed to exemplifying "service above self," making the most of our 25th birthday and meeting our goals.
Pennies. CCC_foreverseptember_20220405This year, our club's goal is to raise $1,025 in contributions to the PolioPlus Fund. President Linda Gerber set that goal to signify our $1,000 goal from last year plus $25 for the 25th birthday the club is celebrating this May. And we've more than met that goal, with contributions from club members totaling $1,672 as of April 26. That's nearly $73 per member!
 
But the fiscal year's not over yet. For World Immunization Week (April 24-30, 2022), we decided to collect pennies (and other coins and bills) for polio up through our April 28 meeting. And generous members gave and gave and gave. At the end of the day, we were able to write a check from the club to PolioPlus for $215. That's a lot of change!
EGC Club Charter_LGerber_20220413May 16, 2022, marks 25 years since the Rotary Club of Eagle-Garden City was chartered.
 
In that time, we have sponsored many youth projects and activities to support our community. Among those projects are awards to honor teens who have shown persistence in finishing their education, library books for young readers at Whittier School, bike safety clinics at the Boys & Girls Club, tree plantings, highway cleanups, food drives for food banks, financial grants to local charities, and birthday kits for disadvantaged children.
 
All this "service above self" began with the commitment from 24 community members who realized they could do more together than as individuals.
