Welcome to the Rotary Club of La Conner!

 
Want to know what the Rotary Club of La Conner does!
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
Moonlight and Martinis 2015 was a great success.  We raised over $55,000.00 for our projects and the kids in La Conner and Copan, Honduras!
 
 
 
 
 
 
Recent gifts totaling $6,726 from the Rotary Club of La Conner benefitted the both La Conner Regional Library and the La Conner Library Foundation.
 
Two grants totaling $1,726 from La Conner Rotary and Rotary District 5050 funded three homework help databases for school students and other patrons. World Book Online Reference, American Indian History Online and A to Z USA, from World Press Media  provide accurate information for school reports and support lifelong learning as well, according to Library Director Joy Neal.
 
Rotary also awarded a $5,000 grant to La Conner Library Foundation for the new library building fund.
 
"The Rotary Club of La Conner is pleased to support the library foundation’s campaign for the new La Conner library,” said Marge Milnor, 2014-2015 president. “We look forward to continued support for this important project that will provide much needed space and expanded programs for the benefit of everyone in the community. We have a proud legacy of hard work that makes it so rewarding to be able to contribute to the vision of a new La Conner Regional Library.”

Tulips are $5 for a bunch of 10 and the proceeds help fund scholarships for graduating seniors from La Conner High School, Dictionaries for 3rd graders, a project in Copan, Honduras providing school uniforms and supplies to students in addition to clean water and sanitation.  We have many other projects in and around the community.
 
If you are a business in the cities of La Conner, Anacortes, Burlington, Mount Vernon or Sedro Woolley and would like tulips for your work area delivered, please contact Linda Ryan at (360) 870-9509 or claminator@gmail.com to place your order.
 

 
On Monday, March 16, 2015, the Rotary Club of La Conner made a donation to the new Conner Park project that is in beginning stages to the Parks Commission and the Town of La Conner as the Club's commitment to the Town of La Conner and local projects.
 
Pictured are La Conner Mayor  Ramon Hayes, La Conner Town Administrator John Doyle, Park Commissioners Brian Scheuch and Ollie Iversen and Rotary Club of La Conner President Marge Milnor.
 
The new park will be located on a scenic, grassy stretch of town-owned waterfront property just south of Rainbow Bridge. 
 
"The Rotary Club of La Conner is pleased to support the first phase of
development of the new waterfront park with a contribution of $5,000,"
said President Marge Milnor.  "These funds represent the dedicated
efforts of our La Conner Rotarians who have a long history of supporting
our community. We have a proud legacy of hard work that makes it so
rewarding to be able to give back to this new park. It's a wonderful
vision that will provide much enjoyment for children and families in the
years to come."
 

 
From the pancake breakfast to fish painting, from the fishing derby to raffle prizes, and from suds, sliders & spirits to a dance with the Esquires, the 50th Annual Smelt Derby Festival in La Conner offered something for just about everyone on an amazing sunny Saturday, February 28.
 
Thank you from the Rotary Club of La Conner for your sponsorship/donation to help make this year’s historic festival a success. We raised more than $13,000 (gross) to support our local and international programs focused on literacy, education, polio eradication and clean water. The Smelt Festival also generated lots of community goodwill and spirit as a day for “kids of all ages.”
 
Your generous support made a difference! Our partnership with you is key to Rotary’s impact.
