Banquet West 2012
Hockey Night
We have volunteered to cook and serve at the Teton Hockey game on Saturday, January 25th. We will serve food from 5:30 to 7:30, or until all the food is gone. Please plan to attend and bring your family! 
 
Banquet West
This year Ashley Wahl has agreed to be our Banquet West Chair. We have signed up for four dates this year due to the popularity and demand of this volunteer service. We will pass around a sign up sheet for each event as they get closer.
  • 3/22/20
  • 4/19/20
  • 9/13/20
  • 10/18/20
For those that are unfamiliar with the event, Banquet West is a community event featuring a free meal for the community every Sunday. Each week a different organization volunteers their time to cook and serve a wonderful meal. This is a family friendly event, so bring everyone!
 
The Salvation Army-Bell Ringing
Thank you to all of the Rotarians that signed up to ring this year. The Salvation Army was very appreciative that we signed up. They even brought apron's with Rotary's name on them!
 
In one day we raised $1,067.76 and after a donation from one of our own we are over $2,000. Using the Salvation Army's website, we can track how much money is donated at our designated site.
 
This year the Salvation Army set a goal of $70,000 and raised a total of $92,000. The majority of the donations were received in the last week and a half. They exceeded last years donations, even though the campaign was a week shorter!
 
Colleague Appreciation Day (formerly Rose Day)
Thank you to Pat Hatlestad, Mark Schneider, Chelsea Ridge, Ashley Wahl, and Deb Halvorson for agreeing to co-chair this event. This year Colleague Appreciation Day falls on April 22, 2020. We will still need additional volunteers to help prep, package, and deliver. Please reach out to one of the co-chairs if you are able to help.
 
4 Way Test Scholarship Application Deadline
The 2019 Scholarship deadline was December 13th. The Board created a Scholarship Committee to review the applications. This year we only received four applications for the five scholarships that were available. Leif Larsen won a $750 scholarship. Jenna Sime, Samantha Ledahl, and Marta Cuartero each won a $500 scholarship.
 
President-Elect Training (PETS)
Have you considered running for President of the Williston Rotary Club? This year our PETS Training will be held Thursday, April 23rd, the day prior to the start of the District Conference. The registration fee will be waived for President Elects that attend the training. District Conference breakout sessions on Friday will be helpful to incoming club presidents, including sessions on leadership and using the presidential citation for planning a successful year. Please visit with one of the Board members if you have any interest in the position, training, or conference. At this time we do not have a President for the second half of our year. We do not have a President-elect for the coming year either. However, we do have many past Presidents willing to offer guidance as needed.
 
One Rotary Summit-Duluth
Our District will be presenting a One Rotary Summit, emphasizing how we as Rotarians and Rotaractors are Connected by Our Rotary Stories, on February 1, 2020. This Summit emphasizes the relationship among membership, the public, and humanitarian service. More info is available on our District website rotary5580.org.
