A few months ago, John Murtagh, Chief of the Angel Fire Fire Department (AFFD), gave a presentation at one of our weekly meeting on how the fire department was doing and outlined some of their needs to better serve the community. The AFFD was in need of a defibrillator/monitor for one of our ambulances as the life span of the cardiac monitor in this unit was coming to an end. Unfortunately, the AFFD lacked funds for EMS needs and sought support from our small community. The defibrillator costs over $20,000. A couple of club members got the ball rolling by starting a 50/50 raffle and obtained business sponsors to further support the effort. The rest of the club got into the program, sold tickets and topped the fundraising effort with a Halloween Costume Ball. In the end our club raised $10,000 which will be matched by the Angel Fire Community Foundation. The power of Rotary is AMAZING.
Bret Wier and Tammy Devine, our New Generation Leaders, award six $1000 scholarships to graduating seniors at Cimarron High School. This is an annual event for the Club along with the Four Way Test Essay Contest held at Eagle Nest Middle School.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book gifting program that mails free, high-quality books to children from birth until they begin school, no matter their family’s income.

After launching in 1995, the program grew quickly. First books were only distributed to children living in Sevier County, Tennessee where Dolly grew up. It became such a success that in 2000 a national replication effort was underway. By 2003, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library had mailed one million books. It would prove to be the first of many millions of books sent to children around the world.

The Imagination Library presents a collection of books beginning with the children’s classic The Little Engine That Could. Each month a new, carefully selected, age appropriate book will be mailedin your child’s name directly to your home or PO Box. Best of all it is a FREE GIFT! There is no cost or obligation to your family.

The Rotary Club of Angel Fire is supporting this program for children ages one to five in the Cimarron School District including children in Cimarron, Eagle Nest and Angel Fire. A registered child will receive a free book each month. Please click on the link above for more information or contact Kevin Mutz at 575-377-2326 or kevin.kmutz@inbank.com. If you want to mail in the registration form send it to Kevin Mutz, The Rotary Club of Angel Fire, PO Box 1436, Angel Fire, NM 87710, not to Silver City.

 

The MVHS (Moreno Valley High School) Secret Pantry is a food pantry designed for the students and faculty of Moreno Valley High School in Angel Fire, New Mexico. The Interact group at MVHS decided that the school was lacking a sufficient food program after they noticed students coming to school hungry and having few options to feed themselves during the day.  One student was even observed falling asleep while taking one of the state mandated tests after having no breakfast that day and no dinner the night before. Due to a lack of nutrition, many students were unable to focus in class and saw their academic performance suffer. 

The Angel Club of Rotary supports the Watch Dog Program at Eagle Nest School both in service and financial support. Recently the Club awarded $250 to the program. Research shows that kids with involved fathers and father-figures are happier, healthier, and less apt to get into trouble. The Watch D.O.G.S. program which stands for "Dads of Great Students” is a national program that allows fathers and father-figures to volunteer to come to school for a day. Dads will get to spend some time with our little ones, help out at recess, and make their kids' day. For more information contact Matt Mitchell at mattdmitchell@gmail.com.

 
On September 22 the Rotary Club of Angel Fire held its Annual Rotary Golf Tournament at the Angel Fire Resort Country Club. This fund raiser event supports scholarships for seniors in the Cimarron School District. Special thanks to Trini Bradly for leading this effort and our sponsors. More on this and the tournament sponsors later.
 
HEART of Taos offers a new co-living opportunity at HEART House specifically designed for single women experiencing or facing imminent involuntary homelessness and who need a transitional place to live for up to 6 months. Residents of HEART House will experience safe, stable, private, and supportive housing in a community setting while re-establishing income and housing. As children and pets are also residents of HEART House, a fun, safe place was needed for the children to play.
 
The Rotary Club of Angel Fire teamed up with the United Church of Angel Fire to fund and build a playground for HEART House. Despite poor instructions and old muscles, more than a dozen Rotary and Church volunteers managed to build the playground in two days. The playground was completed on July 20, 2018. Thanks to all who participated in this wonderful project of "Devine Love in Action" and "Service Above Self".
