Rotary Club Seeks Families for the Christmas Giving Tree

The Rotary Club of Big Sky, with the help of the Big Sky Community, is once again sponsoring the Christmas Giving Tree.

The Giving Tree is an annual program that helps families during Christmas by providing gifts for the children and a Christmas dinner for the family. If you would like to partcipate in this project, please pick up a Santa Letter for each child from either one of the two banks, the Food Bank or the Country Market and help each child fill out their Santa Letter.

Kids can request three gifts from Santa. Please keep toy/book requests under value of $50 each.

Please mail the Santa Letters in the provided self-addressed stamped envelope as soon as possible and no later the December 1st.

Once the Santa Letter is received, Big Sky Rotary will place one angel ornament on the Christmas Giving Tree. Community members will pick up an angel ornament and fulfill the child’s wish by purchasing the gift.

A Rotarian will schedule gift delivery on December 23rd (or before if communicated). The Rotary Club will also provide the family with a Christmas dinner basket at the time of gift delivery.

Please know this program is completely confidential. It is also important to know that because of Covid19 that our deadlines are a little earlier this year, giving us time to grant as many wishes as possible.

Happy Holidays!

Potential club members are everywhere. But to get them to join Rotary, clubs must use creativity and imagination, says Past RI President Cliff Dochterman.

"Rotary International leaders keep emphasizing membership growth and extension because Rotary's very survival depends on it," says Dochterman, a member of the Rotary Club of Moraga, California, USA, and author of The ABCs of Rotary, a resource for new members. "If Rotary is to grow, we all must take action."

Dochterman believes clubs can thrive by seeking new members, retaining current ones, and sponsoring new clubs in the community. He offers the following tips:

Seeking new members

Clubs must have a specific plan in place, says Dochterman.

  • Use a team approach. Teams should have several members who meet with qualified business and professional leaders to discuss the benefits of joining Rotary.
  • Set aside one club meeting per month to be a "visitor day," to which all club members would invite a friend or prospective member.
  • Seek out natural prospects, including Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholars, Rotaractors, and Group Study Exchange (GSE) team members.
Rotary Fellowships Month - Make New Friends Around the World

ImageRotary Fellowships Month - June is designated as “Rotary Fellowships Month” by the RI Board to recognize the importance of international fellowship and good will among Rotarians with similar recreational interests, vocations, and health and medical issue-oriented interests, to promote increased participation in fellowships and increase understanding of this program. The RI Board encourages fellowships groups to highlight activities through projects, activities, and events in celebration of “Rotary Fellowships Month” in June.

“Fellowship is wonderful; it illuminates life’s pathway, spreads good cheer, and is worth high price.”

  -Rotary Founder Paul Harris

"As the recipient of last year's scholarship, I figured you guys would want an update on my educational status!  I am still enrolled in the Montana State University Honors College pursuing my degree in microbiology on the pre-veterinary medicine track.  My freshman year was a whirlwind of activity. I greatly enjoyed my classes pertaining to biology and animal science; I did not enjoy the chemistry and calculus quite as much, but they were character builders and I saw myself improve.  Besides my classwork, I was involved heavily in Korean Club (I achieved fluency in the Korean language in February) as well as in Intervarsity, a fantastic Christian organization that does amazing things on campus.  Thanks to your scholarship, I was able to spend more time on both my classes and my extracurricular activities and less time worrying about my financial status.  Thank you so much for your generosity; it means the world to me!
Hope you are all staying healthy and happy!
 
Thank you again for your support,"
Alexine Liddle

Big Sky Rotary is now offering a 2020 Scholarship in the amount of $2,000. The deadline is April 30th. Please share the information with any Big Sky resident attending college or a vocational post-high school program.

 

 
The Rotary Club of Big Sky has donated to design and construct an Education Center in the new Community Center called BASE. The Education Center will feature descriptions and displays of environmentally beneficial design, technology and building operating practices utilized at BASE and encourage visitors to incorporate the same where they live, work and play.
