Vio with her first host family "mom" Jen Talich.
 
Welcome, Violette Morelle!!  Vio (pronounced "vee-oh") is from Gomery, Belgium.  She says, "I can see France from my house."  Not only can she speak French, Dutch, English, and some Spanish, she also speaks Flemish, the preferred language in some parts of Belgium. Her father works in the television industry while her mom is a nurse-midwife.  Her dad is also a hot air balloon pilot.  She has an older sister who is studying nutrition at university and a younger sister at home.  She visited the US once before--in 2015 to New York City; however, she also has traveled to Italy, Corsica, and Spain.  She's considering architecture as a career, and loves to ride horses (hint, hint).  She is swimming for  Cody High School this season.  Please make her feel welcome in Cody and remember to include her in any family activities that won't conflict with high school studies!!
 
Ted Gerber returned from his year in Sweden sporting a new haircut and lots of jacket "flare."  In his presentation to the Cody Rotary Club, who sponsored his exchange, Ted expressed his thanks and described his experiences as an exchange student.

Four 2018 Scholarship Recipients attended a regular Cody Rotary meeting on Thursday, May 24, 2018.
 
Many thanks to all of our sponsors and audience members who supported our 2018 show "Fractured Fairy Tales with Moose & Squirrel."  We raised well over $30,000 to be used for charitable projects in the Cody community.  If you'd like to see photos from the show, go to the photo album on the left-hand side of our home page.
In recognition of their spearheading and raising funds for the new accessible playground at Mentock Park, the Rotary Club of Cody received a "Community Hero" Award from the City of Cody at the City Council Meeting on Tuesday, December 6.  Present to receive the award from Mayor Nancy Tia Brown were Rick Manchester, Ashlee Lundvall, Charlotte Carlson, Jan Eldredge, Bruce Eldredge and James Klessens.
Amanda Stevens checks inventory received for the Happy Feet Program.  There will be many smiling faces when lucky students receive their new shoes.
Many thanks to Amanda, her committee, and the generous sponsors of this program.

On Friday and Saturday, October 7-8, Cody Rotary Club members Jim Lander, Bruce and Jan Eldredge, Mark Crump, Allen Swenson, and Ken Markert with son Neil, toiled for hours to remove the old, worn play equipment at Mentock Park.  (Check the Mentock Park Photo Album for more photos)

Plan to start around 8:30 a.m. and leave as your schedule allows.
 
Don't forget to complete a City volunteer sheet from Jim or Ashlee.
