Our Interact group collected 170 pairs of shoes for the Soles for Shoes project.  CONGRATULATIONS!  They are in the process of determining how best to get them shipped.  Thank you to everyone who contributed to this collection and the businesses/churches that allowed us to put collection boxes in their establishments.

Applications for RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award) will be available on January 15.  Be thinking of a high school junior or senior (next year) who we would like to send to RYLA!  
 

 
Thanks to the efforts and vision of Sue Beitia, our Rotary Club was awarded with a $2220.00 Idaho Community Foundation (ICF) Grant to be used to purchase the raffle items for the 2016 Youth Benefit Dinner and Auction.  This money comes from the Rawlinson fund in ICF.  Dr Rawlinson and his wife were very active in the Emmett Community and established this fund as part of their estate planning to "forever benefit" Gem County.  
 
Thank you Sue for doing all the legwork and making such a huge difference in what our Rotary Club can do for the youth of Gem County!

Shadow Butte Elementary is starting a project that will alleviate some of the effects of poverty with the kids they see every day: the HUSKY CLOSET. The HUSKY CLOSET will allow children to obtain clothing when they are in need. Sadly, there are many kids who do not have adequate clothing, even undergarments. They are hoping to spread the word that they are collecting gently used clothing in all kids' sizes as well as monetary donations. Money will be used to purchase new socks and undergarments. They are asking for our support.  Shannon Anderson is the organizer and she would be happy to talk with you personally or come to a Rotary meeting to share.  You can reach her by calling  Shannon Anderson 365-0877 (Shadow Butte)

The Four-Way Test 
The Four-Way Test – which has been translated into more than 100 languages, asks the following:
* Is it the TRUTH?
* Is it FAIR to all concerned?
* Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? 
* Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
