Several Emmett Rotarians made the time to attend our District 5400 Celebration in
Boise, on April 21 – 22 and they were glad they did. They learned many new things
happening around the world and participated in helping local nonprofits with their
projects, from making natural birdfeeders, and planting milkweed along the Boise River
to save the Monarch butterflies, to sorting boxes of Amazon returns at Astegos. (Click on the title to read more)
is available for any nonprofit that completes its member application. This is a place that
is only asking for a small amount of money for brand-new items, to benefit nonprofit
organizations as well as to hopefully keep this stuff out of the landfill. Visit

Youth Appreciation Day last Saturday, at the Gem Island Sports Complex! It was a
great day celebrating the youth of Gem County! On Saturday, May 6, is the Flip Flops &
Flamingos present – Back to the 50s Rotary Youth Benefit Auction to raise the money
needed by the youth organizations of Gem County! We are now close to the finish line
and hoping to have another successful auction. This event is what we have been
working on for a year, along with many other events in between, like attending our
District 5400 Celebration. Like everything, there is a deadline, in this case, May 3 is the
last day we can accept any donations for this year’s auction. We’ve completed our part
in advertising your business name in the paper, on our website, and Facebook page.
Now we need whatever it is that you said that you or your business would donate
brought to Marilyn Knighton at Alliance Title & Escrow 1312 S. Washington Ave., Ste. F
in Emmett, by May 3. Thank you! For any questions about the Benefit Auction, please
