The Rotary 17th Annual Rose sale ENDS THIS WEEK - September 7!    $20 a dozen for long stemmed roses!!!   The proceeds from this sale go to the Senior Center so, buy that special someone a dozen roses or two and support a great cause!  The roses will be on sale until SEPTEMBER 7 and will be delivered SEPTEMBER 28!!  A great way to treat the "one you leave behind" when you go hunting or fishing or maybe just watching football this fall. 
Contact any Rotarian or Rose Chairman David Little at dalittle61@outlook.com or call 208-365-4611 where you can talk to Nancy Kelly or David Little.
We had 10 +2, count'em 10 Rotarians plus 1 husband and 1 son, working, talking and laughing at WICAP last Thursday night as we distributed school supplies to about 100 Gem County children, of all ages!  It was exciting to see those faces and know that Rotary had a bit part in their excitement for school to start!  Once again, the school supplies were purchased by funds WICAP received from our Youth Benefit Dinner and Auction with a whole lot of help from our local Walgreen's store.  Parents and kids filed through the WICAP building - thanks to the organization of Mary Soito and her staff - quickly and easily.  And, it didn't stop there!  After getting their school supplies, all were treated to cotton candy as we had two TRAINED COTTON CANDY makers - Bryan Stone and Daniel Brice - mixing it up outside the building.  If you remember, the club members and the Foundation board members voted last week to split the cost of the cotton candy machine so this was our initiation.  A special thanks to Colleen Coates who sold the machine to us and also came on Thursday to train all 10 Rotarians in how to make cotton candy!

Over the next six weeks, the preliminary steps of outbound youth exchange recruitment will begin and conclude with clubs nominating students to be considered for the district-level selection event. We need your help to find these students!

If you know of a student who would like to study abroad next year (2018-19), please get their name and contact information to Kathy so she can set that ball rolling.  Our club opted not to have an exchange student this year but we do hope to have one next year.  To that end, it would be great if we could send "one of our own" on a true exchange!

On Saturday, August 26, six Rotarians were joined by Sam Vetter, an Interact student, Capriel Pecchie, her mother, Ellen and little sister Andrea and Penny Campbell, a Para-Pro from Emmett High School to rake the gravel on the new walking path at Valor Health. We began at 8:30 am and actually were on our way to the rest of the day by 9:45 AND a few of us even WALKED THE PATH after we finished raking.  If you get a chance, drive down Locust Street and view our work on this District Grant project!  It's only a start and there is still work to do, but now we await the professionals with their "tampering" machines - then we'll need to work on roadside rock pick-up and clean-up of the sprinklers that were affected.  We tried to do the sprinklers on Saturday but Kathy ended up getting soaked as the sprinklers came on just as she got down to start pulling weeds!  So, we'll save that for another day!  :)
Rotarians involved were:  Mark Wurtenburger, Greg Kershul, John Buck, Lisa Vetter, Daniel Brice and Kathy Buck
Watch for more information as we continue to monitor and work on this project!
