Rotary Supper Club To Present $1000 to Town for Elk Antler Arches Restoration

Jackson, WY-----The Jackson Hole Rotary Supper Club will present a check for $1000 to the Town of Jackson and the Elk Antler Arches Restoration Committee today (Friday, Nov. 25) at 5:00 pm during the Town Square Lighting Ceremony.

The Supper Club raised the money during its annual Wine Tasting fundraiser in September during the Fall Arts Festival. Every year the Supper Club donates the proceeds from its Wine Tasting to help restore the elk antler arches.

Club co-founder Rod Everett, along with other club members and their families, will present a giant check to Mayor Mark Barron and the Elk Antler Arches Restoration Committee during the lighting ceremony.

“The elk antler arches are a great symbol of our town and our valley, and our club is proud to help support this community-wide effort to rebuild and restore them for the enjoyment of locals and our many visitors from around the world,” said Everett.

Along with helping restore the elk antler arches, the Supper Club is involved in a number of charitable and service projects locally and internationally. These include providing dictionaries for all area 3rd graders, establishing a Rotary Reading Corner in the new Children's Museum, kicking off WinterFest last February in order to help boost the valley's winter economy, and funding water wells for poor communities in Cambodia through the local Trailblazers Foundation. 

The JHRSC was established in 2005 and is made up of approximately 40 individuals who meet on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 7:15 pm at the Wort Hotel. It is part of Rotary International, the world's oldest service club, with 1.2 million members in 34,000 clubs around the world and the motto of “Service Above Self”.
