The 2016 Auction for Education was a great sucess. The Club raised over $14,000 that goes to support the art and music program at the Springdale Elementary School, scholarships for high school students from the Zion Canyon area, and other educational needs.
Next year, we'll again have a number of unique art items, adverturous recreation packages, special gifts and more, all donated by local artists, galleries and businesses supporting youth education. Proceeds of the auction benefit local art, music and education programs. Details will be posted on the Auction page as plans and auction items are finalized.
Holiday Giving Tree
Each holiday season the Rotary Club sponsors a Giving Tree to help children and families that need a little extra love during the holidays.
During the 2015 holiday season, the Giving Tree program was able to help 20 families and 53 children have a merry Christmas. April Gates, our Giving Tree Chair, did a tremendous job organizing and coordinating the tree. A huge thanks to her and to those that donated clothing, toys and money to support the Giving Tree.
Donations for the 2016 Giving Tree can be given to April (contact at 435-632-8869), Rick Wixom at the Town Hall, or at our weekly club meetings.
Each April, the the Club raises money at the annual Earth Day in support of Rotary International's global mission to eradicate polio. "Pinkies for Polio" references polio vaccination efforts in developing countries. Polio workers color the pinkie fingernail on one hand to show the child has been vaccinated.
