The outbreak of the coronavirus has brought us to an unfamiliar situation of having to limit physical human interactions within our communities and across the globe in order to try and curb the spread of this virus. Here's what our club is doing about meetings and service projects...

 
Seward Cares is a Project Homeless Connect event. This is a One-Day community event that provides One-Stop for housing, support, and quality of life resources, with One-Goal of ending homelessness.
 
This event will take place on Wednesday, January 29th, 2020 at the Seward Church of the Nazarene, 809 4th Ave. The event begins at 9am. The last clients will be checked in at 3pm. The event will end by 4pm. First shift is from 8:30-12:30, and second shift is from 12:00pm-4:00pm.
 
Thank you so much for offering your time and energy to this project! Please sign up for the shifts you would like to work. The volunteer coordinator will be in touch with more details about orientation and specific shift responsibilities.

This year marked the 3rd Annual Seward Rotary Duck Race.  Check out the pictures from this year's Race in the Photo Album!Image

ImageOn October 22, 2013, Seward Rotary Club President, Kristi Larson, introduced her son, Christopher Clemons, as the club's newest member.  He brings with him a history of local Rotary.  He grew up in Seward, the child of an active Rotarian.  Now, as an adult, the club is honored to welcome him into the membership.

Christopher is a commercial fisherman, based out of Seward.  He was married to Samantha (Rough)Clemons just over a year ago.  Welcome Chris!

ImageSeward Rotary Club's 2nd Annual Duck Race Fund Raiser was won with a loud quack by local entrepreneur, Jeff Shank, on Sunday, September 18th.   Jeff, and his wife, Shelly, are looking forward to a winter get-away on a Caribbean or Mexican week-long cruise for two donated by Holland America.  The winners were announced at the Seward Silver Salmon Derby awards ceremony just  a couple hours after the photo finish duck race at Lowell Canyon Waterfall.  Second and third place went to Tessa Polasek, $1,000.00, and Jaime Atherton, $500.00. 

I just wanted a contact from my Seward rotary to be able to give updates too! My family is amazing, and I recently found out they talked to my counselor about me staying with them all year instead of changing families, so I'm excited! I'm picking up the language relatively well, and have been attending school regularly. I loooooooove the food here I feel fruit deprived after living in Alaska for so long, so I'm taking advantage of the fruit here! As of Tuesday I have been here one month, and the time has flown, I remember how eager I was to get going and now here I am already a month into my exchange. I hope everyone in rotary is doing well, send them my thoughts. If you see Dexter anytime soon out and about with Amy pet him for me! :)

Nice getting in touch, ill update in a couple weeks or so.

The Seward Cemetary Project was completed in Spring of 2011 and there was a dedication held during Memorial Weekend.  Seward Rotarians were there to support the event and enjoy a celebration that combined the dedication of this project, headed by Rotarians Tom and Sharon Shirk, with the annual community Memorial Weekend ceremony headed by the American Legion.  Rotarian John Christianson participated as both a Veteran and a Rotarian.
Since the initial dedication, continued work has been done to make a beautiful, park-like setting where visitors can sit and relax in a peaceful garden.  The garden was completed by Rotarian, Lori Draper, and has been in bloom this summer of 2012.  As a Club, we are very thankful for the hardworkers whose hard work and dedication brought this project to its completion.  Sewardites will enjoy this addition to the cemetary for years to come.
