YOUNG AFRICAN LEADERS ARRIVE IN JUNE
We heard about the upcoming Mandela Washington Fellowship at our club assembly last month. Boise State has 25 young African leaders arriving in June for a six-week stay, and Boise Rotary clubs will be partnering with the college to help support the program. There are 2 current needs:
  1. Host a dinner party on June 25 and invite 2-4 of the fellows. Contact Cornelia if you’d like to showcase Boise Metro hospitality with a homecooked family dinner. We are looking for 3 hosts.
  2. Be a driver on June 22. This is a fun and easy way to build Goodwill and Better Friendships. If you can sign up as a driver, please use this Drivers Wanted Sign-up Sheet.
And check out the following video about the fellowship program. It will get you excited about this amazing opportunity: <link>
 
 
 
WE NEED MORE SONGS
With the goal of creating a new songbook for our club, your song leaders have exhausted their libraries. We have "tested" 32 songs since we started. We have removed two from the list as "morbid". We need your suggestions to add to the list. Keep in mind that your songleaders are men of a certain age and are not really "musicians". We have to know what a song sounds like in order to perform it. We are not likely to know anything recorded by Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead or Foo Fighters. Neither are we good with genres like Trash Metal, Grunge or Gothic Rock. Songs have to be simple and singable, with no famous guitar riffs. Please let Cahill or John know of any suggestions.
EVERYDAY LEADERSHIP GRANT APPLIED FOR
Our club has teamed up with Boise Sunrise  Rotary to apply for a $19,000 District Grant  to provide Everyday Leadership with funds to support 75 at risk youth at Garfield, Grace Jordan and Koelsch elementary schools. Our share will be $4,750.  Read the complete project description below.

GREENBELT FUNDRAISING - WE ARE THIS CLOSE-ALL ROTARIANS PLEASE STEP UP NOW!
Fund raising for the Rotary Park on the Greenbelt is underway! Last week, we "sold" the last bench for $2,500.  We have applied for District Grants to suppor the benches and interpretive signs. We have set up a GoFundMe account which is already attracting attention.  We had a display table set up at District Celebration.  There are TWO things you can do right now:
 
  • Buy a Rotary Brick. Leave your name to posterity by having a brick engraved in the plaza.
  • Make a contribution on the GoFundMe page and be sure to share it with your social media contacts.
