Support for Angel Fire Fire Department

 

story thumbnail
The Rotary Club of Angel Fire partnered with the Moreno Valley Ministerial Alliance to continue our town’s fund-raising efforts for a new pumper tender truck and a new ladder truck for the Angel Fire Fire Department. These vehicles were needed not only to protect our homes and businesses, but also to keep our homeowners’ insurance in force and in check. We nearly reached our goal for the pumper tender truck, but we were not quite there yet. To help achieve our goal, the Rotary Club of Angel Fire matched dollar for dollar all new donations up to $5000. As a consequence an additional $10,000 was raised and the pumper tender truck was purchased.

One of the “fun” activities the Rotary Club does almost every year is to host “The Annual Mardi Gras Parade”. Businesses, politicians, and anyone who wants to have fun can participate in the parade. It only takes a vehicle with a few beads on it. Some years we have had some elaborate floats (trailers). The star of the 2022 parade was the Rotary Club of Angel Fire float where the true to life T-Rex was throwing out candies to the kids.

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".

Helping people with disabilities make their own music

Music has been an important part of leading an ordinary life for students at the Music School for Children With Disabilities in Honor of Paul Harris in Lublin, Poland. Founded by Rotary members, the school serves 20 students with various disabilities, including Down syndrome, autism, and visual impairments. The Rotary Club of Lublin-Centrum-Maria Curie-Sklodowska has provided funding with help from Rotary Foundation Matching Grants and the Henryk Wieniawski Musical Society, which houses the school.
 
After their son Mateusz was born with underdeveloped eyes, Mariusz and Joanna Kania looked for ways to help him be active. When he showed an aptitude for music, they looked for a teacher and were thrilled to find the Paul Harris music school.

Finding Safe Haven

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.
 
After serving her time, Bianca sought help from a local homeless organization, A Safe Haven, and moved to its shelter in the Rogers Park neighborhood. Bianca followed the program closely -- she attended all the required meetings, passed drug tests, and volunteered at every opportunity.

Saving lives in Ghana

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.

A highlight for the team was greeting the chief of Sagadugu. The team got excited about buying goats and food for children in the villages where I support eight churches. It was good to see the pastors of most of the eight churches, and I had to explain that we were just passing through on our way to Bolgatanga.

India celebrates three years without polio

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."
 
The three-year achievement sets the stage for polio-free certification of the entire Southeast Asia region by the World Health Organization. The Indian government also plans to convene a polio summit in February to commemorate this victory in the global effort to eradicate polio.
