Club Happenings
It's Official!
 
We are moving back to The Alaska Room at the airport beginning Wednesday, May 25.  We are in the process of finalizing all the set-up and will do our best to be fully online and operational but ask for everyone's patience the first week or two as we settle back into our old digs.
 
 
IMPORTANT:  Remember to park in short-term and bring your parking ticket to have it validated with the Rotary stamp when you check in for the meeting.  Parking is covered by the club.  If you forget (and don't want to run back out to your car!) it will be $3.
 
A HUGE thank you to Jeff Grant who made our last year possible by offering up space at Grant's Plaza.
 
See you at the airport!

Juneau Glacier Valley receives $10,000 Parks, Trails and Recreation grant from Juneau Community Foundation for Riverside Rotary Park project
 
Our club was awarded $10,000 in support of upgrades planned for this Fall at Riverside Rotary Park by the Juneau Community Foundation.  We are very appreciative of their assistance and want to ensure other organizations can benefit, as we and the Juneau community will, from their Parks, Trails and Recreation fund.
 
The Juneau Glacier Valley Rotary Club invites you to be a part of the final phase and vision for the Riverside Rotary Park September 11th Memorial.
 
We are proud to state that this memorial, dedicated in 2002, was the first 9/11 memorial in the nation to commemorate the victims of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and the downed aircraft over Pennsylvania. It is also to acknowledge the efforts of the rescue and recovery at each of the sites and the continued fight to preserve our freedom.

On September 11, 2005, the Juneau community dedicated the brick plaza surrounding the memorial. The plaza is filled with engraved bricks that pay tribute to family members, businesses or loved ones who have served or who are now serving in the military, police or fire department. While the memorial is in honor of the tragic events of the day, including those lives lost and the bravery of the first responders - the bricks are not limited to this, they can be dedicated to anyone.  

You can be a part of ”Our promise to never forget”, by purchasing a brick. Our final phase includes a small wall to encircle and embrace the memorial and an interpretive sign explaining the history of this memorial. Your brick can be engraved with your name, family member's names, your business name or a message of tribute or honor and placed as a permanent part of the memorial plaza.

The deadline for brick orders is June 15, 2021 to have your brick included in this year’s 9/11 event.
 
Bricks can be purchased using the QR below or at https://brickmarkersusa.com/donors/jgvrc.html.
 
Our club recently completed a project at the AWARE shelter helping to create a child friendly space for parents, children and advocates to meet, play and learn together.
 
This room holds a special place in our hearts as it was completed in honor of Patrick J. "Pat" Shea.  The plaque shown below highlights Pat's involvement in our club and with AWARE and will be displayed in the room.  Thank you to the club members, volunteers and businesses who helped us make this possible!
 
The Aware Shelter would like to make some improvements to their Children's Room.  Over the next several weeks we will be cleaning and painting, building a new wall storage system and stocking it with organizers to their specifications.  Also, we will be creating a kid-friendly "activity bags" ,  Stay tuned for more ways we can all sign up for a work team or obtain an "activity bag".   
 
The first phase of the project included our very own Glacier Valley Rotarians, Nathan Rivas and Steve Strickler, laying flooring in an office so the temporary office in the Children's Room can be moved.  Great work team!  We are PEOPLE OF ACTION!
 
The Juneau Glacier Valley Rotary Club will be hosting a virtual ceremony commemorating the events of September 11th and honoring Juneau’s first responders.  
 
Please view the ceremony at: https://vimeo.com/456453612
 
As a community and witness to that event, it is important that we remember what transpired that day, how we felt, and recognize our response to it-  the sense of community, the recognition of our first responders, and the way we pulled together to get through something that changed many lives. 
 
We encourage people to take time on Friday, September 11th to stop by the Memorial at Riverside Rotary Park that day for a moment of reflection and remembrance.
 
Our promise is to “Never Forget.”
Amount raised with the PolioPlus Fun Run & Walk and Rotary Radio Day $11,776!!
And then, with the Bill & Melinda Gates 2:1 match, that number becomes a whopping - $35,328!!
Thanks again to everyone for your efforts. We are - as Bill Gates says - 'achingly close' to eradicating polio in the world.
