52 Rotarians and their families/friends celebrated the Christmas holiday aboard the Thunder Mountain Christmas Dinner Train on
Saturday,December 6.
As seen here, several joined the carolers at the station before boarding the train - Doc Stone, David Thompson and in the back, Greg Kershul.  They were a great addition to the already superb carolers!
 
Boarding the train, each found a bell at their place setting, reminiscent of the book/movie, "The Polar Express".  
 
After a delicious dinner, President Tim introduced a trivia game based on the movies, "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" and "The Polar Express".  Fun was had by all who TRIED to answer the questions correctly but, as you can imagine, some of the answers were quite interesting  :) Prizes were given for correct as well as unique answers which provided lots of laughter.  We will all be more aware of all those standard Christmas movies this year so we are ready for next year's trivia contest!
 
Our District Asst. Governor, Mike Sieler attended and was presented with a check for the $2000.00 we raised in our Pins 4 Polio drive.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

Emmett Rotary President Tim Fleming presented a $2000.00 check to Rotary Assistant District Governor Mike Sieler
 
representing the proceeds from the Emmett Rotary Pins 4 Polio event.  Rotary International is working together with the World Health Organization,
the Bill Gates Foundation and others to eradicate polio in the world.  Only 3 countries remain where polio can be found.
The Rotary goal is to have it eompletely gone by 2018.  
Thanks again to our sponsors and members of the community who bowled with us in October to make this contribution possible.
