A very sweet THANK YOU to Ben Mock, Nicole Mock, and kids Donnie Goodwin and Denver Goodwin, John Buck, Mark Wurtenburger, Mary Knight, and Kathy Buck for making, bagging and giving away bags of cotton candy as well as parking cars (with friends)  at the revised Youth Appreciation Day movie on Saturday, April 24 at the Theater at the Mill.  Such fun!
"...all we are saying is..Give Peace A Chance...." will be the theme of our first ever Emmett PEACE WALK next Saturday, May 22, 9:00 am, starting/ending at the Rotary Shelter!  With that, let's dig out those tie-dye shirts and headbands of the 60's and have some fun!!! 
 
Our objective is to promote PEACE in the world, starting in our own communities, our district, our state and our nation.   Bottles of water will be provided. Walkers don't have to be Rotarians and we invite all community members to join us.  Any and EVERY AGE is welcome!  A fun family event for all.   A nice walk along the river on a beautiful May morning for PEACE!  It just can't get any better than that!  
 
WAIT, YES IT CAN! 
We may be visited by the District 5400 Peace Committee Chairman and soon to be District Governor Elect, Janice Fulkerson will be joining us as well as at least one other District dignitary.  
 
PLUS....our club planted a tree in honor of Ann Stone at the Rotary shelter.  We will be dedicating that tree on Saturday morning just before the walk.   You won't want to miss this tribute to an amazing lady!
 
See you next Saturday morning!  
 
 
 
 
 
The 2021 Cherry Festival is scheduled for June 16-19. Mark your calendars now and start signing up for parking!  We have 2 hour shifts for 4 days so there is a lot of room for you to work!   This is the only fundraiser we do where all the proceeds go toward club expenses - we need EVERYONE involved as much as possible.  The youth groups requesting money from this year's auction in September are more than welcome to join us as we cover two parking lots with ticket takers and parkers.
 
WE NEED EVERYONE!!!  Contact Kathy at klrainbow49@gmail.com to reserve your time!
 
Thank you to:  Jim Waters, Mark Wurtenburger, Mary Knight, Perry Jenkins, Rick Walth. Greg Kershul and prospective member Josh Wester for already signing up...and a couple of our the groups who have requested funds from the auction will be on hand also with adults in the ticket area and kids in the parking area.  BUT - there are LOTS of Open Time Slots so don't hesitate.  We want to have this completely filled by June 1!  
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
The annual Rotary Youth Benefit Dinner and Auction will be  held on September 18, 2021 at the Gem County Fairgrounds.  Plans are underway for another very successful event as we raise money for the youth of Gem County.  During this pandemic year, it seems only appropriate to recognize just how small our world is.  Watch for more details and the flamingos returning to Emmett!  We are already getting sponsors and will soon be visiting local businesses for donations to the auction.  If you have something you would like to donate, contact chairman John Buck, 208-369-1785 or klrainbow49@gmail.com.
