Here's What's Happening in Our Club
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. 
Birthday kits from the EGC Club_NChavez_20220414We in the Eagle-Garden City Rotary Club are getting as excited as children about our upcoming 25th birthday! And we've been thinking about how we can celebrate this milestone.
 
One idea really took hold. We recognized that not everyone gets to celebrate their birthday. Children whose families rely heavily on food banks and social services must put basic needs above all else. 
 
So we decided to create birthday kits for children! Each kit has a cake mix, frosting, birthday candles, sprinkles and can of Sprite (a substitute for the oil, eggs and water) organized in a disposable aluminum cake pan with a clear plastic lid. We've also included a birthday wish from our club and instructions for using the Sprite in place of other ingredients. 
Lots of Rotarians have shown up the last couple of months to bring the Wetland Peace Preserve closer to our vision. In February, volunteers planted riparian cuttings and wrapped trees, while March found Rotarians weeding and mulching the saplings we had planted last fall. Our club's volunteers for these two events included Laura Spencer, CJ Huston and Natalie Chavez. On another track, the WPP advisory committee is preparing for the city approval process.
