The Beaver Creek School District, together with the Rotary Club of Sedona, Lake Montezuma Women's Civic Club, Beaver Creek Friends of the Library and Red Rock Quilters, announces that Dolly Parton's Imagination Library is now available to the communities served by the Beaver Creek School.
Seeded by the raffle of a quilt donated to the club by the Red Rock Quilters, over a year of fundraising and building support in the Beaver Creek communities has resulted in the Imagination Library now being available to the Beaver Creek School District. Superintendent of Schools, Karin Ward, together with staff, kindergarten, preschool and Head Start teachers, will administer the program. Rotarians David Simmer and Jean Barton will be on hand to sign up children at the annual July 4 Picnic in Lake Montezuma.
Fellow Rotarians, I am privileged to share with you the words of thanks from our 2014-15 Rotary Honor Student Scholarship recipients. Many seniors have scholarships presented to them at the awards night at the end of the school year and we acknowledge our recipients that night, too. However, unlike the others, our students are honored at our meeting earlier in the school year with speeches of praise given by the nominating faculty and staff. They also have the opportunity to list this honor and scholarship on their applications to colleges. Because of all we do, our scholarship has special meaning for the students. Way to go, fellow Rotarians! Read the words of thanks to see how we light up these kids lives! Jennette
The International Service Committee has chosen to support a project to develop libraries in the elementary schools in the neighboring municipalities of Veracruz. This is an approved matching grant project, so The Rotary Club of Sedona's contribution of $2000 will be matched by our district and again by Rotary International to yield a total of $7000 for the project.
The Boca del Rio Costa de Oro Rotary Club has supported, with its own resources, the development of two public elementary schools in the urban area. Part of this support has been the development of their school libraries. Having completed that project, they decided to create a larger project to add libraries to more elementary schools in their area. This project aims to provide full libraries to 20 schools for an estimated cost of $36,500. The Rotary Club of Sedona and District 5490 are pleased to be part of this well planned project. Here is the project description and plan.
