Board meeting Wednesday 7:30 AM at the Red Lion. Everyone is welcome!
Our program this week will be Karianne Fallow, CEO of Dairy West.
Dairy West is a USDA qualified program based in Boise, Idaho which will continue the marketing and promotion work for Idaho’s dairy farm families. This is an exciting evolution in the nation-wide checkoff system, and will work side-by-side with the Idaho Dairy Products Commission, fulfilling the mission of ensuring the prosperous future of dairy farming in the west.
Hello Rotarians,
The board has agreed to pursue a new initiative in 2018 - quarterly drives for community nonprofits! Since I recently acquired a garage, I've agreed to steer the initiative and organize the moving parts.
It’s simple - every three months we’ll shift to a new beneficiary, track down their needs and wheel the items over to our Tuesday meetings. At the end of the quarter, we’ll either have the beneficiary come pick them up or we (I?) can deliver them. There will be a focus on beneficiaries that need in-kind donations as well so we aren’t just mirroring Happy Bucks and burning people out. 
To start our engines, I’ve chosen JEMFriends as our first beneficiary. Here’s what they’ve indicated would fuel their efforts best:
  • Household cleaning supplies (cleaners, detergents, sponges, paper towels, etc.)
  • Household basic needs (toilet paper, hand soap, tampons, etc. Think about what you buy regularly. Before James asks - no, they cannot be used)
  • Tickets to events or fun things (movies, tickets your bank gives as perks, that Olive Garden gift card your great aunt gave you because she has no taste buds, etc.)
  • Link your Fred Meyer rewards card number to their nonprofit key - 91501. This gives them great deals for housing items
  • Gift cards to anywhere
  • Organize a fellowship activity to:
    • Make them dinner during one of their workshop nights
    • Take them somewhere that generally tends to give huge ticket discounts, like an Idaho Steelheads game. Does anyone have a connection there?
If you have questions or want to take the wheel on suggesting the Q2 beneficiary, let me know. I guess now I’ll have to start making pit stops at our meetings to collect. 
I’m excited for the road ahead!

Yesterday I presented our Greenbelt project to the members of the D.A.R. Specifically, it was to ask them to approve the idea of moving "their" monument over to our site. As you know, the monument in question in located next to the Boise Inn, over by Joe's Crab Shack, in an invisible location on N. Garden St. As it happens, the D.A.R. had been talking about moving it for some time. The members enthusiastically approved the motion! They are excited to have their monument out in the open where they can their story......... and we get our monument! They will also be able to purchase bricks to help with the cost of moving the monument; including an option to buy the 8x8 brick with the D.A.R. logo.
Now that we've solved that problem, its back in the city's court to tell us what happens next. Stay tuned!

Mark you calendar - we've signed up to prepare and serve the evening meal at Boise Ronald McDonald House on Wednesday, January 17th from 4-6PM. More details to follow! Contact Carrie Westergard of you can help.
