DRC Service Project - "Growing our Community" PDF Print E-mail

Decorah Rotary Club hosted its regular Fifth Tuesday evening meeting and service project on March 29th at the local Winneshiek Wildberry Winery.

The designated service project for this meeting was called "Growing Our Community." The project is ongoing and is designed to connect both Rotarians and community members. The project was generously supported by community business donations. Seed Savers Exchange supplied the potting containers and seeds, and Winneshiek True Value provided the potting soil. Seeds were planted by DRC members who will also tend and grow the seeds in their homes. Our Rotarians will come together again on May 31st for the second phase of the project, when the seedlings will be transplanted as needed and then distributed to members of the community as a gift from the Club. Assisted living centers and nursing homes will be the primary focus. The remainder of the seedlings will be distributed at the Decorah Community Meal.

Annual Rotary Chili Supper PDF Print E-mail

Our Annual Rotary Chili Supper took place on Friday, January 15th at the Decorah High School Cafeteria. There was a sizable showing with ~280 individuals served over the course of the two-hour event.  The proceeds raised will be applied to DRC's Decorah Community Schools Foundation which supports multiple scholarship awards to deserving high school seniors each year.  The active participation in our Chili Supper by the Decorah-area community helps our Club maximize it's support of our local students.

The Club extends its thanks to all of the supportive volunteers and especially to everyone who came out and enjoyed the meal!

Decorah Rotary Club Supports Adult Literacy in Brazil PDF Print E-mail

Two years ago the Decorah Rotary Club Board approved the donation of $3000 over a three-year period to the Rotary Club of Tangará Cidade Alta for their ongoing adult literacy project. We learned of this project through its founder, Wilson Dalto, whom DRC Member Ward Budweg met on one of his international bike journeys. Ward and fellow DRC Member Kelly Reagan also met up with Wilson and his wife Mariza at the Rotary International Convention in São Paulo, Brazil last June.

The following pictures were sent by Wilson from a program reception for the recent graduates of their literacy program.  Click on the "Read more..." link for more photos!
