Will Duke and Amy Federko recently volunteered and participated in an exciting program offered in Blaine County School District called CHOICES.  It first involved intense training both at home and in the school.  Then, for two days, Will and Amy, along with other community members, offered an interactive decision making workshop that empowers teens to achieve academic success in pursuit of their career and life aspirations.  While in life, there are some things we do not have choices about - our eye color, our birth order in our family, our height, our race, our born gender - most other things we do have an opportunity to make a choice about.
 
In two hour long sessions, Will and Amy and other volunteer adults took students through real world exercises on academic self-discipline, time and money management, and goal setting.
 
The teens learn quickly, that despite their current status in school, with work, with friendships, home life and so on - they do have many opportunities to make decisions and choices that will help their future.
 
A testimonial from the program.  "Many students at high school feel that they cannot succeed in life.  CHOICES shows them that their achievement in school has a direct relationship with their jobs after school and their future in general."

The Ketchum Sun Valley Rotary Club has been busy this summer with "Service Above Self" events that have entertained local residents and visitors to the Sun Valley Area.  Saturday June 21st, the Club put on it's first Annual BrewFest led by Rotarians, Holden Morgan and David Patrie.  Ketchum Town Square had nearly 500 folks enjoying the hops and food!  On Saturday, July 26th, the Club helped long time member, Bob Stone, with the 6th Annual Sun Valley Road Rally.  Everyone put the pedal to the metal to help raise awareness and funds for the Drug Coalition.  And of course, everyone knows about the Duck Race.  August 31st marked the 18th Anniversary with 10,000 ducks dumped into the Wood River off the Warm Springs bridge.  Watch for an upcoming news story for my details on the Duck Race and the lucky winners!

The Interact Club of Episcopal School of Knoxville, Tennessee, USA, is the grand-prize winner of the 2011 Interact video contest with its entry, “Change 4 Change.”

The video tells the story of how students at the Episcopal School of Knoxville collaborated to produce an illustrated children’s book about the worldwide effort to eradicate polio. Managed by eighth-grade Interactors and club advisers Laurie Coburn and Susan Lancaster, the book aims to raise funds and build awareness for Rotary’s End Polio Now campaign.

Take a moment to see what Rotary President Elect Sakuji Tanaka had to say about the theme for the 2012-2013 Rotary year.

"Peace, in all of the ways that we can understand it, is a real goal and a realistic goal for Rotary," he said. "Peace is not something that can only be achieved through agreements, by governments, or through heroic struggles. It is something that we can find and that we can achieve, every day and in many simple ways."

Today we celebrate Martin Luther King.  In this day and age of long and painful speeches, it's difficult to imagine the impact of MLK's most famous speech happened in just 17 minutes.

Believe it or not, the "I Have a Dream" speech was originally titled "Normalcy, Never Again." and the first drafts never included the phrase "I have a dream". The popular title "I have a dream," came from the speech's greatly improvised content and delivery. Near the end of the speech, famous African American gospel singer Mahalia Jackson shouted to Dr. King from the crowd, "Tell them about the dream, Martin." Dr. King stopped delivering his prepared speech and started "preaching", punctuating his points with "I have a dream."

First and foremost, our President Elect for the 2012-2013 year will be Davis Hein. Davis has already spent the first part of this year as President Elect and is looking forward to his year at the helm. Thank you Davis for your service! We might need to check, but it's quite possible that Davis is our club's youngest President ever.

It's election day.  We have a great collection of candidates, don't miss Tuesday's meeting and the vote!

Board membership is a 3-year term,  The same holds for a club president (1 year as President-Elect, 1 year as president, then 1 year as Past-President.)

These candidates all deserve a hand for their willingness to give of themselves and their time.  Please come support them this Tuesday with your vote.

In Rotary, we are the example of our ideals.  To this end, we have instituted strict campaign finance reform.  All candidates have adhered to our strict ethical code.  No candidate is accepting campaign donations.  All of them, however, are open to congratulatory libations after the vote is complete.

Thanks to the Idaho Mountain Express for the tips on disposing Christmas Trees:

How to dispose of trees:

  1. Call Clear Creek Disposal (726-9600) to pick it up at a small charge

  2. Take your cleaned tree to Ohio Gulch at no charge, or

  3. The Wood River High School Band will recycle trees on Saturday, Jan. 7
    (call Sandra at 481-0389 or Sharon at 720-7454 to arrange a pick up).
    Proceeds help the WRHS Band raise funds for their trip to Anaheim, Calif, next spring for the Heritage Music Festival and Competition.

There's some talk about putting together a Santa Reception for kids at the Blaine County Senior Center.  The concept is to get with the Hailey club and treat local kids to Santa, pictures, and some ice cream.  Along the way we get to promote Rotary and the Scoops ice cream parlor.

If you're interested, let me, Will Duke, know as soon as possible.  And if you know a photographer who will donate their efforts, they don't need to be a professional, that would be terrific!

According to a public image survey commissioned by Rotary International in 2010, people are much more likely to know about Rotary and perceive it positively as a charitable organization if they personally know a Rotarian.

Note the interesting point that "an average of only 16 percent of respondents said they would be likely to join a local Rotary club."   How many people live in this valley?  Mathematically, we're missing members.

In 1917, RI President Arch C. Klumph proposed that an endowment be set up “for the purpose of doing good in the world.” In 1928, when the endowment fund had grown to more than US$5,000, it was renamed The Rotary Foundation, and it became a distinct entity within Rotary International.

Rotarians have put Service Above Self for more than a century. Through vocational service, Rotarians serve others through their professions and promote high ethical standards. In honor of Vocational Service Month, members are encouraged to apply the skills and talents they use in their professions to their club’s service projects. To discover members’ unique skills, clubs could conduct a skills inventory to determine a service project that maximizes members’ professional abilities.

Well, another race is in the can.  The quck and dirty numbers, $51,265 in ducks sales, and 13,058 ducks.  Tom took home the big prize for #1 sales.  Curt Chambers' team took home the prize for top sales team.

Thanks to everyone who showed up Saturday & Sunday to help with sales and the event itself.  We had a big crew helping pull everything down, which makes it fast and easy.  And, judging by the smile, laughter and noise level at the Sawtooth club afterwards, everyone had a good time.

We're so close.  Right now is push to finish, or slide backwards.  As we struggle personally with the state of the US & global economy it's easy to forget that there are people struggling with something much more personal.  Right now is the time to finish.

Every year we send a couple of local kids to RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Academy.)  This year's camp is coming up soon, Aug 4 - Aug 7.

If you have ever attended District Conference, or any District 5400 event where they talk about RYLA, you've heard people say how amazing it is.  You've heard people say that it changes a young person's life.  Well, I've heard those things.  Many times.  I've heard stories about parents begging/bribing/forcing their kids to go.  Sullen teenagers who don't want to waste their time.  Then the story goes that the kid comes back and apologizes for their previous behavior.  Swears they won't be that kid anymore.  

Can you even imagine having that kind of impact on a person?

Have you ever wondered what goes on there?

There's a quick story about it on the district website.  but even more fun, especially for the lazy who won't read, last year they made a video.  Check this out!

Speaking to the Rotary club is an honor.  As a group we are business and community leaders.  If you do the math, 30 minutes of 40 people's time is 20 hours of exposure.  It's not unreasonable to value our time at $100/hr.  Consequently, the opportunity to present a program to our club could be valued at $2,000.  We're certainly not asking anyone to pay to speak to us.  But we do need to recognize the value of the opportunity to their organization.  In other words, we don't need to beg for programs.
