THIS WEEK - IT'S ALL BUSINESS!
VIRTUAL DISTRICT CONFERENCE WAS FUN!
Friday's annual District Conference, even though it was virtual, was a lot of fun! The theme was "Making Mole Hills out of Mountains". Governor Ben Nelson did a fine job reviewing the events of his year and passing the gavel onto his successor, Russ Johnson, from Idaho Falls. The winner of the big raffle ticket was Kaci Jensen, who sold it to herself! So Kaci gets $9,000 worth of travel and Centennial Rotary Club, her club, gets $4,500!!
The featured speaker of the evening was Ed Viesturs from Ketchum. Ed is a professional Mountaineer. He's climbed all 14 of the "8,000s" in the Himalayas. His program, entitled "No Shortcuts to the Top", told about the preparation and training required to be successful....and "success" doesn't necessarily mean you made it to the summit! By the way, if you want to try it, Annapurna is the hardest!

ROTARY FOUNDATION - WE'RE #2
Roger reports that our club currently sits at #2 in District 5400 for per capita giving to the foundation ($306). LETS BE #1!! We have until June 30th, the end of the Rotary year, to surpass Sunrise Rotary for the top spot. If you haven't made your contribution to the Rotary Foundation yet, let's get 'er done! 
OPPORTUNITY TO HELP UNITED WAY
Last week we had a fascinating presentation from Christa Rowland about United Way of Treasure Valley Community School Strategy. Well, here's something we can do to support UWTV:
 
Thursday, June 17th from 4-6:30pm, the United Way of Treasure Valley will be collecting items for their Homeless Student Basic Needs Pantry. This pantry serves roughly 60 schools throughout the valley. It's our hope to supply school workers who are working through the summer with basic needs items for students who may be experiencing food insecurity and barriers to hygiene while school is not in session. And with a little luck, the pantry will remain nice and stocked for the start of school in August/September.
