The Latest News from the "Make it Happen" Club
 
Father Treacy, one of the founders of Camp Brotherhood and the the TV show Challenge, spoke to our club last Monday night. He told his story of how he came to USA from Ireland, landed in Seattle, became friends with a rabbi and together they created Camp Brotherhood with the goal of stimulating religious unity. He also was part of a TV show that two Rotarians approached him about doing. The focus of the TV show was discussions among religious leaders of different topics. His overall message was one of hope of the healing of divisions in humanity. We all left the room feeling lifted.
Doug Jones spoke to us about his 62 year experience in Rotary. Had us laughing with antidotes and stories. He also emphasized he loves what Rotary does and represents, especially Service Above Self.
 
Our members donated funds to support 6 families involved with SPARC for the holiday season. Presents, clothing, shoes, etc were obtained for each member of the family in addition to a food goodie bag and gift cards to buy groceries.
Good cheer was had by all as John quizzed us at the annual Christmas party. Yummy food and drink. Wonderful way to celebrate our friendships.
We had a very successful Santa Breakfast, filling Maple Hall with families galore. Santa had lots of visitors and requests. 
We are a hands-on service club dedicated to improving lives locally and around the world. We do this by promoting and investing in literacy, public health and community service.  We are the club people want to join, because we have fun while making a difference.  Our La Conner Rotary Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization.  Our tax ID# is 26-2730981.  Learn More About Our Club
 
Please note that we meet most Mondays at The Farmhouse starting at 5:45pm.  Please check the speaker list and/or event schedule for changes to the venue for the Monday meeting.
