Last night (Jan. 26, 2021) we had a very interesting speaker by Zoom:  Chip White, who lives in Star Valley, shared his very informative history of the US Navy.  He had a very extensive slide presentation with his comments.  This was a program that worked well on Zoom as all of the members that logged in agreed!
 
Most of our club members showed up for our first in-person meeting February 9 at The Wort Hotel last night! We were able to catch up on our stories and visit with each other over our meals just like the good-old-days!  Then our program was presented by our tech guru, Scott Daily, who taught members how to log onto and navigate both our Club Runner site and Rotary International too.  He urged members to add additional information to your club site.  He can always be reached for help.
The Club has received 240 Webster Dictionary/Thesaurus books for all Teton County third grade students and teachers.  New this year, part of the shipment includes an English/Spanish version for the five classes at Munger Mountain School...a dual immersion school.  The students requested this version at our visits last year.  [Oct. 26, 2020]
On March 24, we held our first Zoom meeting to comply with social distancing.  Nearly all members were able to get online to participate and see each other on the screens.  Our guest speaker, Jonathan Schechter of the Jackson Town Council, participated and gave his "program" to update us on the steps the town is taking in these trying times.  Board meetings are being conducted by Zoom also.
  The Jackson Hole Rotary Supper Club recently completed enhancing 15 blankets that were shipped from the "My Very Own Blanket" project office in Westerville, Ohio.This program has been warming hearts of every child in the foster care system by providing blankets.  We ordered the material in January.  A valentine dinner program on February 11 was the perfect time to have members complete the cutting and tying knots on the charming and colorful fleece cloths, especially with the tag that says "A special gift of LOVE make just for YOU!"  Even though we live in the wealthiest county in the country (Teton County), we have two foster children here and the Family Service office also oversees foster children in two nearby counties!
For the thirteenth year in a row, our Club continues to distributed dictionaries to all third graders in the Teton County School district.  On November 18, 58 books were given to three classes at Colter Elementary in Jackson.  And immediately following that morning, 31 more students received them at Davey Jackson Elementary.  The next two days, three more schools were reached, including 98 at Munger Elementary.  Over the years, the club has spent $10,000 on this literacy project.
We gathered on a perfect summer day in and outside the home of Ellen Wilson and Rich Tambor for a social/recruiting dinner.  Rich cooked hamburgers, beef and Dave's  bison too.  Everyone brought delicious side dishes and we enjoyed the time to visit and meet friends that were invited too.  Thank you, Rich and Ellen, for your hospitality.
Thank you, Doug Schultz, for throwing a party for all club members and guests to celebrate your final meeting.  With the help of your wife Debbie and your parents, your backyard and perfect weather made for a memorable time to celebrate your year!   [Click on "read more" to see the photos.]
Many members and guests filed into the balloon-filled Jackson Room at The Wort Hotel on Tuesday, February 24 to honor the achievements and fun of the last ten years of the Club.  Manager Jim Waldrop and Lauren Armatis of the hotel greeted us at the beginning of our meeting with a bouquet of yellow roses and related the importance of Rotary to The Wort Hotel.  The Supper Club has met at The Wort all 10 years since Jim's first year as manager.  They gathered around the special Rotary cake to assist our first and current president, Rod Everett and Tote Turner, to blow out the candles.  Tote welcomed the guests and former members and offered each of them the microphone for a few short words for the occasion.  Scott Daily conducted a fun and informative quiz about our club and Rotary in general.  Then each president was given a chance to address their year and memories with the assistance of photos put together by Helen.  Even though three presidents were absent (Paul, Patti and Jim W.), Helen's photos and narrative filled in for their years.  Our Club has accomplished a lot over the 10 years and Helen's photos were mostly about the FUN TIMES we have had over the years.
