The Rotary Club of Angel Fire sponsored a County-wide Zoom Candidates Forum to give every voter in District 3 a chance to meet them.   Each candidate was given an opportunity to introduce themselves and answer three questions that they were provided in advance.

Rotary Four-Way Test Winners!

Every year, eighth-grade middle school students in the Cimarron School District participate in Rotary's Four Way Test Essay Contest. They apply the rule's by which Rotary conducts itself to their own experiences at home or in school. The Four Way Test is:

Is it the truth?

Is it fair to all concerned?

Will it build good will and better friendships?

Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Winners of the essay contest were awarded cash prizes and the best essay has been submitted at Rotary's District level for a chance to win even a bigger prize!

The Winners of the contest were awarded their prizes on March 11, just before schools were shut down, at the Eagle Nest Elementary/Middle School. The attached photo shows the our first, second and third place winners as well as those students who received an honorable mention.  There were a lot of good essays! Congratulations! Nathan Hill, our current President, and Janice Brooks, our Youth Program Coordinator are also in the photo.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Rotary Annual Mardi Gras Parade on Sunday afternoon. We also what to thank the Mikuna Grill for providing a venue to award prizes for the best floats.

Rotary Is the Place Where Our Communities Go for Help
Angel Fire Rotary Club Saves Lives!
 
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.
