Although the world is in a state of crisis right now it is still possible to carry on the Rotary tradition of helping where help is needed.
 
Our club is working with Kiva to help people grow their businesses and support their communities. So far our club has contributed 34 loans to various countries and for various purposes as you can see by these graphs. 
We invite everyone to visit Kiva and look at all the good that is being done across the globe. Once there you can read more about the type of  people requesting loans and about how we are supporting the world by helping these people.

Had the pleasure of delivering 25 hampers to a local elementary school with a Rotary buddy. This is part of the Feed the Kids campaign. The food bank needs donations of peanut butter and canned goods. Even better a cash donation. Some of these families have been going without. Nice to help out!

Tonight we welcomed our club's first exchange student, Davina Cater, and her family. A 15-year old student from Promontory, Davina is excited to be participating in a short-term exchange this summer. She is hoping to be sent to France, and return from France with her French host-sister. As Davina's sponsoring club, we look forward to getting to know both girls better.
