Rotarians pick up after themselves....and others
StoryThumbnail
On Saturday, May 12 members of the Rexburg Rotary Club cleaned their stretch of Interstae Highway 20 just north of Sugar City.  Club members reflect on the first time we cleaned this section - it took most of the day and many truckloads to remove all the trash.  Through consistent bi-annual cleaning efforts the amount of trash in this section has been reduced to about 20 orange bags, which took 10 participants just over an hour to collect.  Weather was very nice (which is usually not the case).  Thanks to all those who assisted in this project.  If you missed it, you will have another chance in October.

Blankets for Comfort

These cute cozy fleece blankets were crafted with love at the Rotary Rotary Club meeting last Thursday.  When complete, they will be donated to the Madison Memorial Neonatal Intensive Care Unit as well as the Family Crisis center to provide a source of comfort for children facing some difficult times.  This effort is headed by Darla Wilson, club member and director of Upper Valley Industries, who also assisted in this project.  We appreciate the efforts of everyone who took time to serve these youngest members of our community.

Harlem Ambassador Basketball Show
StoryThumbnail
Wow! - the people just kept coming.  The Harlem Ambassador show was a huge success.  Over 1,700 persons came to enjoy this night of comedy and fun play.  There was something for everyone to enjoy.  We received great coverage in the Rexburg Standard Journal, and local radio stations.  We offer our sincere thanks to all the club members and other volunteers who helped organize this event.  We could not have done this without you.  Rotarians live by the motto "Service Above Self", and the funds generated from this event will allow the Rotary Club to be involved many great service opportunities.  We look forward to having the Harlem Ambassadors back again.

Rotary Club Presents Wreath at Veterans Day Program
StoryThumbnail

The Rexburg Rotary Club was honored to present a memorial wreath at the annual Veterans Day Program on Friday, November 11.  Rotarian Judge Greg Moeller offered the opening remarks.  What a wonderful way to bring in the Thanksgiving and Christmas season as we gave thanks for those who have served, and continue to serve our Country.  More than 10 years ago, Rotarian Lynn Archibald envisioned the construction of the memorial that provided the backdrop for this program.  We are immensely proud of Lynn, the Rotary Club, The City of Rexburg, and many other service organizations that contribued to this magnificent memorial located on the southeast corner of Smith Park in Rexburg.

Dictionaries for all Madison County 3rd grade students
StoryThumbnail

On November 10-11, members of the Rexburg Rotary club presented every 3rd grade student in Madison County with their very own dictionary.  Each year for the last 3 years, the club has reached out to these students to express the importance of a commitment to education.  Students learned how fortunate they are to have the learning opportunities afforded them.  They were challenged to get as much education as possible so that they would be able to give back to their own communities, wherever that may be.  They learned about the commitment of Rotary to finish the task of eradicating Polio in the four remaining countries where Polio still devestates thousads of children about their age.  The children were so excited to receive this gift, and their teachers assured us that they will put them to good use this year.  We hope these students will continue make learning a part of their lives.  Thanks to school administrators and teachers for allowing us to spend some time with these wonderful young citizens (and hopefully future Rotarins).

Blessed with great weather, members of the Rexburg Rotary Club and helpers completed their roadside cleanup on Highway 20 north of Sugar City on Saturday.  Long time Rotarian, Jerry Rigby sports his sweet orange vest as one of a crew of 24 who assisted in this effort.  This is an ongoing project done each spring and fall to help keep our roadways beautiful.  We have not always had such great weather, but we will take it when we can!  Thanks to all who participated.

On May 23, 2011 David Scott represented the Rexburg Rotary Club and awarded two scholarships each worth $250 towards the college of the recipients choice.  The scholarships were awarded to Kim Eckman and Justin Ricks, both of Sugar/Salem High School. 

Kim left the next day to work on a dude ranch in Wyoming and Justin was available to attend Rotary on June 9, 2011.  There is was kind enough to talk for a moment to the club and thank the club for the scholarship.  Justin is planning on going to BYU-I this next fall and then to serve a mission for the LDS Church.  After his mission he plans to move forward in obtaining a degree in dentistry.
